Opposite the necessity for camping coffee is the necessity for camping booze (which, truth be told, can create the necessity for camping coffee). If you're going with liquor, a flask will work just fine. If you're going with beer, you can always keep it cool in a cold stream. But if you're going wine, perhaps you could enhance the experience with the following wine gear:

  • Sea to Summit 2-liter Pack Tap: Pour a bottle of wine into a bomber, soft-shell bag with leak-proof spout, and it won't shatter when you drop it. Genius!
  • GSI Outdoors Stemless Wine Glasses: Made from BPA-free polyester resin, these won't break.
  • Goatskin Wine Bota: Modern world got you down? Instead of synthetics, polymers and high-tech gadgetry, consider the traditional Spanish wine bota made of goatskin.
  • Box Wine: Whoever first considered placing wine in a tough cardboard box, complete with its own spigot, was a smart person. It's not the lightest or the least bulky option, but for car camping, it works.
