I Am My Own Wine Purse

"Would you buy wine in a purse?" wonders Serious Eats' Maggie Hoffman. If the answer is yes, ask your favorite wine shop for Volere.

I just bought this the other day at my favorite liquor store (Downtown wine & spirits in Davis Square). I got the Rose because, duh, pink wine purse. It was... okay.

Would you buy wine in a purse?" Yes.
Would you watch online wine reviews from a man who says 'smelly, smell', 'tasty-taste' and puts his finger in his ear during the review? Never again.

@Tuna Surprise I know, and I'm sorry for what I did. But he's also kind of amazing, right? I like when he puts his finger in his ear.

@Edith Zimmerman I thought it was rather endearing.

@Edith Zimmerman Well, he is no Gary Vaynerchuk.

@Tuna Surprise: I was really expecting his description of the aroma to be "leather, pressed face powder, cherry Chapstick and Altoids - with a hint of fresh currency."

@Tuna Surprise What really got me was when he started motor boating the wine. Clearly I am uncultured and have no clue about proper tasting techniques, but all I could think about was does he do that every time he takes a drink and that I'd never invite him to a party if he were my friend because my god that NOISE!

The only correct answer to this question is: "Only if I can drink it out of a glass slipper."

Is it took much to hope for that someone (@melis?) will give us a "Green Eggs and Ham" parody for this?

This purse needs to look more like a purse, for stealth.

I bought this and it's fine! It's wine! Just drink it!

"Pitch it out in the gah-bige." Yeah, guy! Wicked awesome.

If the wine was delicious I would buy it. That is always my rule. Well, that and I try to buy something new as often as possible though I do have a handful of favorites that I return to in a pinch, and I will always try something at least once before deciding I don't like it. Gimmicky things don't really change how I buy wine, one way or the other.
