Necessary Indulgences: Your Favorite Wine and an Essential Accessory for a Ski Trip
After a day of outdoor sports, it’s time to enjoy sunsets at the mountain and good food. You need to recharge your batteries for the next day and enjoy every minute. That’s why when packing for your ski vacation, it’s worth considering that you may not be able to find your favorite wine at your holiday destination.
To not deprive yourself of that well-deserved indulgence, you only need a little planning. You can bring the wine you love in a bottle, but you may find that wine in a Bag-in-Box format is a better option for a ski trip. Do you know why?
- It’s easier to transport. Bag-in-Box is a lightweight and compact container that takes up little space, making it easy to transport in a vehicle or suitcase. The BiB doesn’t run the risk of breaking, something that always worries when transporting glass.
- Greater durability. Wine in Bag-in-Box stays fresh for several weeks after opening, thanks to its vacuum packaging system. This means you can enjoy the wine throughout your ski trip without worrying about its preservation.
- Space-saving. By bringing wine in a Bag-in-Box instead of bottles, you save space. This is especially useful in holiday accommodations with limited space.
Today, there is a wide variety of wines available in Bag-in-Box format, from white and red wines to rosés, sparkling wines, and wine blends. In addition, the BiB packaging format tends to be more economical than individual wine bottles, making it a more convenient option.
If you already know how to pair those mountain sunsets, all you need to include in your luggage for your ski vacation is the device that can improve that gastronomic and social experience that is the winetasting: HandsFree Tap. And remember, you can also use it for your water, juice, milk, and other beverages in Bag-in-Box.
