I love summer for a lot of reasons—pool parties, beach days, getting away with no makeup thanks to sun-kissed cheeks. But mainly, I really just adore drinking wine outside. Whether I’m in my backyard with my husband, on front lawn watching the kids play, hanging on the sand with friends or lounging at a concert in the park, there’s truly nothing that screams “Summer!” more than sipping a chilled rose alfresco.
But here’s the crux: Drinking my beloved can be a precarious endeavor. Balancing a wine glass on grass, for example, is a disaster-in-waiting. Keeping glass bottles intact, white wine chilled and your glasses upright can be, well, stressful—which is the opposite of how you want to feel when you’re drinking some vino. Because I’m your wine ambassador to summer, I’ve rounded up 10 ingenious products that take the hassle and worry out of our favorite solstice activity. From wine glasses you can stake right into the ground to drinking spouts you can plug into your favorite Pinot Gris, these are the must-haves that will keep you a happy (and buzzed) all summer long.
