I did notice the stemware in the photo, and was charmed.


It may be Lexan stemware, but it's better than a Sierra cup !! 8)

Here you go -

Black Rock Wine Cellar
The unrelenting heat of the Black Rock Desert is no place for wine! If you have a special bottle in need of tender loving care, we invite you to check your bottle into our refrigerated subterranean facility, where it will await your return under lock and key. And while you're here, why not join us for a tasting of some of the bottles we brought to share?

Nice! If I was going to bring wine, I would appreciate their services. I am currently undecided as to whether I will bring any alcohol to BM this year.

Why yes! Yes, we are! Black Rock Wine Cellar at 7:30 and Esplanade is providing refrigerated wine storage. Come see us! We'll also be providing wine tastings. And if you'd like to donate any wine to these tastings, we'd be happy to accept them.

Perhaps. I always keep hard liquor in the trunk because I don't drink at home, and don't want to mooch when I'm at a friend's place.

I've heard a playa hangover is not something I want to experience though.

Was just at Le Target (just plain Target for the rest of you) and while looking through their incredibly useful aisles of didn't know I needed that, I found some boxed wine, in cubes! Was pretty cheap, so I went a little crazy... They even have these cute little 250ml single serving boxes. Perfect for throwing in the backpack and wandering the playa with!

I take a box of red. I throw it in the cooler for a short while so it's cool enough to drink. It's just your regular old cheap vino. I remove the box at home and just take the bag.

I do drink out of stemware at home, but I found that the stanless steel water bottles HOLD AN ENTIRE BOTTLE OF WINE. Yeah, I know you wanna try it at home before you go ;) The steel doesn't put off any "off" flavors and packs well. The one downside is that it heats up pretty well so I only use it at night.

We stay in Reno before the burn and I usually pack 1-2 bottles with a screw off top in my suitcase.

Hi. Longtime Lurker. :oops:

I write a wine blog, Hipster Enology, so... I have um, some experience with the subject.

  • Nalgenes & standard size stainless water bottles are capable of holding all 750ml of a bottle of wine. For those who like to go big when you go home, Sigg has a magnum size. :wink:
  • If you need to rapidly chill a bottle of wine, spin it in ice water.
  • Boxed wine is just a bag on the inside. It is extremely durable. Take it out of the box and hit the city, or the shower, or wherever.

I myself take a case then transfer my bottle of the evening to a stainless steel water bottle to go. Hearty reds hold up pretty well during the day as they can handle the heat, whereas whites and light reds need to remain a bit cooler to be palatable. So, drink'em faster. :mrgreen: We also keep bubblies in camp then dispense into plastic stemless wear (GoVino) or open maws. My favorite playa beverage is lambrusco. Man oh man. :)
