French Pool Toy
French Pool Toy wines are the result of an accident. Maurice, a French-American boater, was enjoying a sail with friends and toasting the sunset with a bottle of Rosé. The glass bottle was knocked over and broke on the deck, cutting Maurice’s foot.
That night, an idea formed. Maurice began to formulate a solution for boats, beaches, pools, concerts –anywhere glass would be a hazard. Why let a heavy, bulky and dangerous glass bottle ruin someone’s summer fun, not to mention waste some good wine?
Maurice envisioned good, quality wine in a high-grade unbreakable bottle. With the help of two young French friends, he began researching, designing, and tasting. After much work, the first vintage of Pool Toy was produced – an excellent wine in go-anywhere, eco-friendly packaging.
The very drinkable rosé and white wines are sourced from classic grape varietals from Provence in the south of France. The bottles are PET plastic, with less than half the carbon footprint of glass bottles, leading to a lower global warming index. The wines also are available in 1.5-liter totes with leak-proof spouts.
The bottles and totes are lightweight, unbreakable, resealable, and environmentally friendly, with an oxygen barrier to protect the wine and extend shelf life.
