The answer to every prayer of the wine drinker on the go has been answered thanks to a nifty invention from Bella Vita Bags. A tote bag from the collection allows you to store, transport and pour wine all in one product. With this tote bag, enjoying your favorite wine at a picnic, the beach or virtually anywhere you like to imbibe is as easy as throwing a bag over your shoulder.

Available in two colors (red or blue), the sharply designed PortoVino Beach Tote is decorated with horizontal stripes and yacht-rope handles that contribute to its overall nautical theme. Inside the bag, store all your standard purse necessities like your wallet, sunglasses, lotion and more. In addition to your essentials, there is a hidden zippered pocket that can carry up to two bottles of wine (750 milliliters per bottle) or any other liquid you choose to consume.

On one large side of the bag is a flap of fabric that conceals a pouring spout from which you can dispense your favorite drink wherever you are, so long as you have a cup.

Bella Vita Bags recommends replacing the liquid storage pouch after each use, or thoroughly cleaning the storage pouch as it can be a growth bed for bacteria.

The PortoVino Beach Tote can be purchased on the Bella Vita website for $39.95 plus shipping.

Best Destinations for Going Off the Grid

We all need a break sometimes. If you want to take a vacation where you can truly escape, check out one of these destinations for going off the grid.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Budget Bites in Orlando

Orlando may be best known as home to Disney World, where finding cheap eats is nearly impossible. However, there are plenty of options throughout the city for those dining on a budget.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
