It's always seemed like whoever coined the phrase "rosé all day" was peddling a pack of lies with every embroidered floppy hat, one-piece swimsuit, and gold-lettered wine glass sold. It's a nice sentiment, but just about every place you want to enjoy a glass of rosé in the summertime — the beach, the park, your friend's kid's never-ending soccer tournament — doesn't seem to have easy access to a bottle, let alone a place to hold it.That is, until now. makes this collapsible wine table for two — and it's a boozehound's dream come true. The wooden table has three holes that are just the right size for cradling two glasses of vino and an entire bottle. The base is specially curved, so the bottle doesn't slip through and crash to the ground, and it has a spike on one end that can easily dig into sand or grass. Even testing it on an exceptionally windy day — people's umbrellas were leaning and collapsing — this tiny table stayed put.
There's also just enough room on the tray to hold a small cheese platter or snack plate, so you can go all out.
A metal pin keeps the table in place, and when you're ready to go, you slide it out and the countertop folds flat against the base, so you can easily tote it with you.
Forget coolers and funny towels — this is the real must-have on beach days. Of course, not all parks and beaches will allow alcohol on the premises ( will allow it, apparently), so check your local laws and regulations before heading out. And swap out your glass bottles and stemware for plastic or acrylic versions.
