A designer has reinterpreted the concept of wine-in-a-bag for the sophisticated, female oenophile in the form of luxurious French goatskin and Swiss workmanship.

Claudia Eicke’s Weekender bag is for the wine-loving female who routinely carries a bottle of vino in addition to her lip gloss, smartphone and day planner.

Made from natural grain goatskin from France, bottles can be tucked securely in the “tunnel” portion at the bottom of the bag which were specificaly designed to be stiff to prevent the wine from budging out of place.

Eicke’s envoyage collection, featuring high-end leather goods, launched last year in Zurich. Her products are also available online and she ships around the world.

Meanwhile, at the world’s largest wine trade fair Vinexpo this month, French wine house Cordier Mestrezat Grands Crus showcased a custom-made Louis Vuitton wine carrying case specially commissioned to hold four 2008 vintage bottles.
