FOOD WINE ABOUT IT VINGLACÉ KEEPS ITS COOL You’re outside drinking a chilled glass of wine on a summer day, when you notice after a few minutes…the chill is gone. Talk about a buzzkill! Those days are over now, thanks to Vinglacé, a tough-yet-lightweight canister that keeps wine, champagne, Tito's Vodka and even Topo Chico bottles chilled for hours. It fits just about everything boozy and drinkable. Developed by hus- band-and-wife wine enthusiasts (and Houstonians) ALYSON and COLTON HAAS, Vinglacé allows you to enjoy your frosty beverage wherever or whenever you want, with no need for ice, stainless steel canteens or bottle wraps. Simply unscrew the adjustable Tritan™ plastic top and insert your bottle, screw the top back on, and enjoy! The base is made of stainless steel and is double-walled and vacuum-insulated, so your chilled bottle can remain cold and enjoyable for hours (Who takes hours to drink one bottle of wine? That's cute). Products are available in white, stainless steel, black and limited edition pink stainless steel. They can also be customized with a logo, message, etc., so they make the perfect gift. Drink up with Vinglacé and know you’re also doing good. For every every product they sell on the www.vinglace.com website, they donate 5% of the proceeds to breast cancer research. Alyson Haas is a breast cancer survivor so it’s a cause near and dear to her heart. “With early detection and the best medical care, I am happy to say I am cancer-free,” she says. “After this life-changing experience, we were determined to give back in some way,” she adds. So chill out during these waning days of summer with Vinglacé and enjoy that bottle from the first to last pour. www.vinglace.com By Tim Moloney Photography provided by Vinglacé 22 L O C A L | september 17
