Partner in Wine reusable wine bottle and tumbler

Partner in Wine bottle and tumbler

No more lukewarm rosé. Partner in Wine, founded in 2020 when all socialising became outdoors, was established to solve the problem of bringing a lukewarm bottle of wine to a picnic. The reusable stainless-steel bottle holds a whole 750ml bottle of wine and keeps it cold for up to 24 hours, for chilled summer outdoor entertaining. It also keeps drinks hot for an impressive 12 hours in mulled wine season. Choose the insulated double-walled 340ml tumbler – we loved the clever leak-proof lid, with a sliding opening to drink from, which felt secure when closed. It comes in three colours – Instagram-ready pink, simple white or silver.

Selfridges (from £20)
