WIne from a Purse?

You've heard of wine from a bag or box, but now a company in Sweden has made it elegant....Vernissage Wine comes in red, white and rose and are sold in a box that looks like a high end purse!
The white wine is a 2011 Chardonnay, the red is a Cabernet Sauvignon and the rose is a Syrah rose all from France.
All three wines are elegantly packaged to coordinate with almost any outfit you might have.  The 1.5 liter sells for $20 and the 3 liter sells for $40. No doubt, the bags are made in response to a poll that found that women who choose to drink alcoholic beverages, choose wine. 

Despite the silly nature of the design, the air tight bags that contain the wine are known for longer preservation of opened wine.  The wine leaves the bag and allows in a minimal amount of oxygen and the opened wine lasts weeks instead of days.
