2. For the fabulous and responsible
Pommery, the brand that brought us those adorable mini champagne bottles, now helps us toast guilt-free with their new eco-friendly POP Earth champagne, which uses sustainably grown grapes, a lighter glass for their bottles and recycled paper labels.
3. For the cosmo-loving ‘Sex and the City’ fans
“Sex and the City” costume designer Patricia Field has created a limited-edition bottle for SKYY vodka. “[Since both brands] are world labels, I thought, ‘Let’s take the iconic skyline in “SATC” and pop in an Eiffel Tower and Big Ben.’ I think the twinkly stars really define the life of these girls in N.Y.,” says Fields about the design. We hear the cocktails shaking.
$18 at stores nationwide
4. For the beer connoisseurs
Forget bringing a bottle of wine to your next dinner party. Besides their beautiful packaging, Goose Island’s new line of Belgian-style ales pairs beautifully with meals.
$10 for four, Whole Foods
5. For the eco-and design-conscious
Boxed wine used to be so declasse. But this isn’t like showing up with Franzia. For their organic blend, Yellow+Blue uses Tetra Paks, which preserve wine just as well as a bottle, but are more eco. And there’s no stress about one of these breaking on your way to the park.
