What came first, the wine or the Egg-O?
The reality is, who cares?
primary source of sustenance and
comfort, celebration assistance, relationship enabler.
My beverage of choice.
I have been known to go to the park toting a bottle of wine. Also the kids and other adults. Certainly not just me and my bottle sitting under a tree or anything.
I’ve also been known to frequent BYO-friendly establishments. I like to think that, whatever I’ve saved on being able to BYO, will help pay for the babysitter.
I also like to take wine when visiting certain friends who are not quite right. Not quite right because they don’t drink. And, get this – they have kids! Who has kids and hasn’t, at some point, been driven to the wine bottle for sanity and salvation?!
All of this means that I consider myself a bit of an expert on wine storage, transportation, and consumption. A very committed expert who conducts regular and extensive research, thank you very much.
My biggest gripe to date has been temperature. You see, I like my wine cold. Really cold. Even red wine. Yeah I know, that’s wrong on so many levels, according to so many real wine experts (not self-proclaimed experts like yours truly). I don’t care. I like it cold. And if it can’t be chilled…watch me put ice in it. Even the red stuff.
Enter Egg-O, answer to all my prayers (except the ones about Vin Diesel).
Here’s how it works…
Place your pre-chilled bottle of white wine inside (I’m non-discriminatory so I’ve used both red and white in my extensive testing).
Click the cap into place and voila – grab the handle, take the lid off your bottle and pour away.
The genius is in the fact that you never have to remove your chilled bottle from the Egg-O, so it stays all chillaxed for longer. Until you finish the bottle and need to sub in a reserve.
It’s simple to operate, and easy to get your head around. Also perfect for when you’re subbing in reserve 3, 4 or 5 and you’re at the stage of utilising only basic functions and motor skills.
Also, it’s perfect for disguising those cheap $4.99 bin-end bottles you grabbed from the darkened bargain corner of the bottle shop.

It even floats, so get ye to a pool party, Egg-O in hand
as a floatation device, and you’ll never have to leave the pool. Except to, you know.
It’s stylish, it’s trendy, it’s colour co-ordinatable (my word, you’re welcome). It comes in 6 colours, so is sure to match at least one of your Gucci handbags (real or faux, the Egg-O doesn’t mind).
Now that I’m super stylish in my wine delivery method, all I need is wine worthy of my Egg-O.
I wonder if I can find some empty bottles to decant cask wine?
Christmas Present Alert : Egg-O is available for just $39.95 – Totally reasonable for any wine-loving family member this festive season.
