Enotourism is a growing travel phenomenon that focuses on wineries around the world. The trend first began in the ‘70s, when Napa Valley started marketing their wares on the global stage. This surge in popularity grew even bigger after the 1976 “Judgment of Paris”, a competition organized by Steven Spurrier where two California wines beat out the competing French varieties considered to be vastly superior. The verdict blew the doors open on the wine industry, letting the rest of the world in on the top tiers of wine tourism.

Today people travel to all corners of the globe to visit vintners and absorb the culinary traditions of the region. Purchasing bottles on-site at wineries is become increasingly popular, but can be troublesome if you want to save them for later. Thankfully enotourists now have the opportunity to protect their precious vintages with the VinniBag, an inflatable bag designed to carry and protect bottles while packed away on a flight.

 

The bag is made up of air chambers that can be inflated by mouth or pump. Designed to hold standard 750-ml wine bottles, the VinniBag is also versatile and can be adjusted to hold any item like perfume, camera lenses and fragile souvenirs. The product was engineered to withstand air pressure and temperature changes, and is capable of handling turbulent movement inside your checked-in luggage. If it were to break, all the liquid and broken glass will be contained within the bag, isolated from the rest of your luggage. For wine tourists, inspiration can strike at any moment, so keeping the deflated bag in your luggage is a good idea in case you decide to buy a bottle unplanned. If you find you no longer need it, just visit their website where you can return the VinniBag and the company will recycle it into a hose.

Review: Norton Simon Museum

Pasadena, California, is home to plenty of places to experience great art, but none so impressive as Norton Simon Museum.
