Our bicycle tours of the California Wine Country and Sonoma County are a great way to combine two passions: cycling and wine. So we were excited to here from previous guest Genevieve Flanagan who drew our attention to a cool gizmo that also celebrates the combination of these two passions: a handmade leather bicycle wine rack! Perfect for getting Pinot to the picnic!

Of course, on our Napa & Sonoma Bike Tours or our Willamette Valley Bike Tours, if you buy wine you can just call us and we collect it for you and deliver it to your hotel. But we still think this is still very cool – perfect for getting the odd bottle of pinot to a picnic in the vineyards. It also hits another of our hot buttons; it’s well designed and made with recycled parts.
The holder is the creation of Montreal-based designer Jesse Herbert. Jesse assures us that the bottle is way more secure than it looks thanks to hidden clamps. If you’re tempted, contact Jesse at Jesse@oopsmark.ca or 514.601.3476.
