A new wine company has figured out how to turn the box into a high-end purse

A boxed wine that doubles as an accessory.

No matter what, boxed wine will always be a subject of debate: does it deserve its bad reputation? Does it actually taste good? Can you bring it to a party without being subject to wine snobbery? Fortunately, one company has taken on boxed wine's bad rap and turned it into a classy accessory — quite literally.

NPR reports that the name for Vernissage, the "bag in a bag" wine from Sweden, is quite literal: it looks like a handbag. Now, Squish Wines is importing them into the U.S. and hoping that the design concept will catch on among female drinkers in America. The handbag wine has been a hit in Sweden, China, and France. Style Bistro reports that the wines — a syrah, rosé, and chardonnay — will be sold for about $20 (for 1.5 liters) and $40 (for 3 liters). (No word if it's a reusable bag.)

Funnily enough, NPR says, the bad rap of boxed wine may be false; some say that the bags within the box might be better for preserving wine than a glass bottle. Shocked? The bag allows little oxygen in from a tap pour, unlike uncorking a bottle. Could boxed wine become the new corkscrew (and socially appropriate) wine? Time will tell all.

21 Reasons Why Wine Drunk Will Always Be Your Favorite Drunk

Women and wine -- it's perhaps the closest and most fun relationship out there. It's stable, strong and reliable.

Wine is there to comfort you in the toughest of times and the most exciting of celebrations. Perhaps this is why women love wine in the first place -- there is always a time for it.

Whether you are drowning your sorrows from yet another miserable day at the office or celebrating your most recent promotion, you know exactly what you are doing at the end of the day -- that's right, cracking open (or twisting off the cap of) a fresh bottle of vino.

So why is a wine drunk better than any other type of drunk out there?

1. It makes you feel classy

You could be bundled up in your sweatpants and underneath a blanket, but as long as you have a full glass of wine in hand, you've never felt classier.

You could be celebrating with tequila shots, but your classy ass goes straight for the vino.

2. It's technically fruit

How many glasses does the recommended nine servings translate to?

3. Even if your teeth are purple, you still feel sexy

Chances are you won't even realize your once pearly whites have turned five shades darker.

4. And even if you're sh*tfaced, you still feel classy

You may not look it, but you certainly feel like it. and isn't how you feel more important than how you look?

5. You don't feel bloated the way you do after beer

You don't get full from wine the way you do with other alcohols, which is probably why this is always your drink of choice.

6. The bartender can never f*ck up your drink order

The only way your bartender could possibly screw it up is if he under-pours the glass.

7. Because talking about it makes you sound smart and pretentious at the same time

You may not know anything about tannins or varietals, but you know you like Riesling and, honestly, that's good enough for you.

8. It serves as a great excuse to eat cheese

As if you needed any other excuse besides "you felt like it" to drink wine, pairing it with cheese just makes you look like the classy individual you are trying to be.

9. No one will judge you for drinking it at 9 am on a plane

Everyone understands -- flying is stressful. That's why they even serve alcohol on planes in the first place.

You know you'd be judging that guy drinking Don Julio on a 9 am flight, but no one would judge you for enjoying a nice glass of wine.

10. You can drink it in front of your parents without them thinking you're an alcoholic

Finally! Something to prove to them you aren't the alcoholic that they think you are.

11. Drinking an entire bottle isn't frowned upon

In fact, it's encouraged. Why do you think there are 2-for-1 specials all of the time?

12. Because one glass of red wine can be the equivalent of one hour at the gym

13. Because it now comes in the form of ice cream

Too good to be true? No, it really isn't because now it's here!!

14. It serves as the perfect excuse to stay in on a cold night

As if the cold weren't a good enough excuse! At least you won't really be alone if you have a bottle of wine with you. But it's not as fun drinking alone, which brings us to.

15. There is no better bait to convince a friend to stay in with you than with a bottle of wine

One bottle for you, one bottle for me -- who's going to finish hers first?

16. It doesn't matter if it costs $4 or $40 -- it all does the same thing

When you're drinking wine, you have at least one of two goals — to knock yourself out to sleep or to get drunk. So regardless of the price tag, any wine will take you down these routes.

17. The conversations you have while wine drunk are incomparable to any other form of liquor

When you're drunk off vodka or tequila, no one knows what the f*ck you are trying to say, but when you ingest liters and liters of wine -- there's no shutting off your feelings.

18. Slapping the bag counts as exercise. right?

Seems like a hefty arm workout to me.

19. It's much more comforting than a food binge

Food binges make you feel tired, upset and bloated. Wine binges just give you a headache. I'll take that over bloat any damn day.

20. Because you can have a glass or two on your lunch break and nobody would know the difference

21. It's the best sleep aid you can get without a prescription

You may not remember falling asleep, but it will still be the best sleep you've gotten in forever.

For many wine enthusiasts, boxed wine has long retained a strong stigma of it being cheap and often higher in alcohol content, in effect fuelling cheap drunks. Vernissage's content is about 13 per cent.

But on the other side, wine experts argue the packaging’s fixed volumes only allow air to enter when wine is poured, keeping the wine fresher far longer than bottles can.

Benefit: The boxed wine is said to preserve the contents far longer than regular bottles due to its limited opening to oxygen except at its pour

Bag in a box concepts mutually allows wine to stay fresh for weeks after opened thanks to eliminated room for air that causes oxidation.

‘I always thought it was a fantastic way of serving and conserving wine,’ Jenny Lefcourt of Jenny and Francois told the New York Times .

As a French wine importer, she herself produces 3 liter bag-in-boxes that feature a 55 per cent lower carbon footprint than traditional glass bottles, due to the energy needed for glass production and transportation.

‘I didn’t see any disadvantages to it, except that people still have a negative image of them in the U.S,’ she said.

Vernissage reports their 1.5-liter Bag-in-Bags running around $20 and the 3-liter around $40.

The basic recipe is simple and can be used to make almost any fruit wine. The Beverage People's fruit wine recipe below will show you how to make blackberry wine, and also functions as a raspberry wine recipe, plum wine recipe, and cherry wine recipe.

The recipe(s) are designed to start the fermentation with 6 or more gallons of must, understanding that once the fruit solids have been removed the liquid volume will be reduced. A starting volume of 6.5 gallons should yield 6 gallons of finished wine, while a starting volume of 6 gallons should yield about 5.5 gallons of finished wine.

The summers of Sonoma County are flush with the bounty of wonderful fruit. And as Byron Burch, the shop&rsquos founder, was fond of saying, &ldquoIf it&rsquos got sugar or starch, we can make alcohol with it.&rdquo Besides the fun of discovering a use for extra fruit, these wines really add variety to your cellar.

Grapes are naturally suited to winemaking. They make enough sugar and acid on their own. Most other fruits lack enough sugar and acid to make wine on their own. Most of the sugar and some of the acid must be added. Because of this, it's best to think of fruit wine as a recipe. The fruit will provide color, flavor, some acid and some sugar and added water, corn sugar (dextrose) and acid will build up these ingredients to actually make wine.

A good grape wine needs to start at a minimum of 20° Brix to generate about 11% alcohol and in addition will need at least 0.5 - 0.7% Titratable Acid for an acid balance in the finished wine. These amounts will taste good without overpowering the flavor or aroma with alcohol and tartness. So with those parameters, we can create our recipe to reproduce those conditions.

Start with about 12 pounds of corn sugar for 6 gallons of finished wine. You need about 2 pounds of corn sugar for every gallon of Must to get to 20° Brix, plus the fruit will provide additional sugar and volume.

Next you need between 15 and 20 pounds of fruit. The more fruit the better, but always have at least 15 pounds. Always use more when making wines from fruits that have lighter flavors and aromas. In my experience, darker colored fruits like blackberries, blueberries and cherries tend to make better wines. They tend to have stronger flavors which are more likely to be retained in the finished wines. Think of the flavors of the fruit itself. If there isn&rsquot much flavor or complexity in the fruit to start with, there won&rsquot be much left in the finished wine. Wines made from fruits such as apricots or melons usually have little to no flavor or aroma once they have finished fermenting.

While the fruit will contribute some sugar to the must, it is usually not enough to make the Brix high enough for wine. A good tip to start with is to add the sugar in increments after you have mixed together the fruit, water, acid and nutrients. After each addition is stirred in well, use your hydrometer to take the Brix reading and then continue adding until the amount of sugar reaches about 20° Brix.

Remove as much of the seeds or pits as possible. While seeds and pits are annoying to remove, it is worth it. As alcohol in the wine increases it may extract compounds from the seeds or pits which may have a negative impact on the flavor or even be harmful. Tiny, soft fruits such as blackberries and blueberries can be gently crushed, just enough to break the skins. Fruits a little larger and firmer such as cherries and small plums can be halved and pitted. Larger fruits can be quartered or cut into golf ball-sized chunks.

Since most fruits, including grapes, do not contain enough nutrients like nitrogen for the yeast to carry out the fermentation, yeast nutrients are always added. Using 1 to 2 teaspoons of Fermaid K acts like vitamins for the yeasts, keeping them healthy. Then the yeast can work to complete the fermentation and avoid production of undesirable flavors and aromas.

You can also add 1/2 oz. of the enzyme Pectinase to break down pectin in the fruit, allowing for easier extraction of juice and minimizing haze in the finished wine. Pectinase should be added before the fermentation begins as alcohol inhibits its activity.

Perform an acid test to make sure you have the right amount of acid in your wine. A desirable range is about 0.5 - 0.7% TA. Add tartaric acid using the simple equation on our wine magnet or from the directions in your acid test kit.

Add 5 to 10 grams of wine yeast that will accentuate the fruit flavors of the wine. We often recommend a white wine yeast that produces fruity esters such as Epernay II over a clean, relatively neutral champagne yeast. The added esters from the yeast tends to lend more complexity and flavor to the wine. Another great choice is Beaujalois 71-B as it accentuates fruit flavors. I used 71-B for a cherry wine I made last year and was quite happy with the ripe, fresh cherry flavor and aromas in the wine.

Sulfite should be added to the must before fermentation begins to kill or inhibit wild yeast or bacteria and at multiple times post-fermentation to build up free SO2 to protect the wine from oxidation and spoilage.

When it comes to the fermentation itself, the easiest way to ferment fruit wines is to begin with a fruit wine starter kit or obtain similar equipment from your own resources. You will start the fermentation in a large food grade bucket fermentor with about 8 to 10 gallons capacity. This will give you plenty of room for the fermentation and also be easier than trying to remove and clean fruit pulp from the inside of carboys. Place the fruit in a non-reactive nylon mesh bag and allow the fruit to ferment within it. Twice a day, remove the lid of the bucket and use a sanitized spoon to push down the rising fruit pulp cap. Continually punch the cap down during fermentation to keep the fruit in contact with the yeast in the liquid. Also, don&rsquot let the cap dry out or it may attract bugs or bacteria. When the cap stops rising, simply lift the nylon bag from the bucket out of the wine. Gently squeeze out whatever juice will freely come out and discard the fruit. Replace the lid and allow the wine to finish fermenting. When the wine hits 0°Brix or below, siphon to a 6 gallon carboy. Secure an airlock or breather bung. Make sure to top up into the narrow area of the neck, even if you have to add a neutral white or rosè wine. Refer again to the sulfite instructions for additions you will make during storage and before bottling.

Detailed instructions for making fruit wines.

Use the following procedures for 6 gallons of Berry or Stone Fruit Wines:

  1. Smash sound, ripe berries (or pit stone fruit), tie loosely in a straining bag and place in open top fermentor.
  2. Heat 6 quarts water with Corn sugar and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, cool and pour into the fermentor over the fruit.
  3. Add the remaining water, Yeast Nutrient, Pectinase and Tartaric Acid. Add 5 crushed Campden Tablets.
  4. Cover with loose plastic sheet or lid and allow to cool and dissipate the sulfite, waiting for 12 hours or overnight.
  5. Stir in the Yeast. Once fermentation begins, stir or push the pulp down into the liquid twice a day.
  6. After 5-7 days, strain and press the pulp. Funnel the fermenting wine into closed fermentors, such as glass or plastic carboys, and attach a fermentation lock. Note: if this fermentation is very active, you may need to divide the wine between two carboys so it won't foam out and spill.
  7. When bubbles are no longer actively rising through the wine, siphon the wine back together into one full carboy. Optional: Fine with Sparkolloid, add 3 Campden Tablets and store for four weeks with an airlock.
  8. Rack (siphon) away from the sediment, top full with a neutral wine and leave under airlock for 3 weeks up to 4 months.
  9. For bottling, rack into an open container, and add 3 crushed Campden Tablets. Sweeten with sugar syrup to taste and add 1/2 teaspoon Sorbistat per gallon to stabilize. Siphon into bottles, cork, and set aside to age for at least 3 weeks.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) for most of the country, the bag is only available for delivery to California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Nevada, and New York. Need to carry your booze in style, but live somewhere else? No worries—this incredibly classy wine purse should get the job done.
