“Freshbag” – French for wine kegerator

Have you ever noticed that box wine doesn’t chill itself? Or thought the fridge somehow seems too full or plebeian for such a majestic thing as box wine? Or you are nostalgic for the kegerator days of yore? Well, then, say hello to Freshbag, a mini wine fridge, just for box wine.

The Freshbag has three settings, one each for rosé, white and red. Keep em all chilled and ready for when unexpected guests drop by. Fitting both three or five liter formats, Freshbag has got you covered. And when it’s not in use, it takes up space in your cabinet. All that for a mere $250 at stores in France.

  1. Red wine doesn’t need to be chilled. No problem.
    White wine is for cooking.

  2. Ok, so $250 is obviously a ridiculous price for a box-wine accessory…but I totally want one of those

  3. @Quizicat: nearly all red wines are supposed to be stored and served around 50 to 60 degF. So unless your house is that temperature, yes red wine does need to be chilled. Ever had warm red wine on a hot day? Its gross

  4. So it’s only sold in France, but it’s called Freshbag. Not Frenchbag? Not CoolSac? For $250.00 it had better be holding DRC.
