A. The party pouch reservoirs are made of BPA free, FDA approved and are made from the same material used in boxed wines.The actual material is PE/VMPET/PE+PE. It is a very durable material that you can feel safe to fill your liquids with.
A. Yes! Every PortoVino comes with a Party Pouch to hold your favorite beverage.
A. The party pouch is the PortoVino reservoir, easy to use and fill, it is especially designed to hold 2 bottles of wine or 1.5L of your favorite beverage. It includes a pouring spout so you can easily pour on the go. It is made of bpa-free food grade material that is designed to preserve wine and minimize oxidation.
A. Yes. Although we do recommend changing out your party pouch, especially between different drinks to give your party a fresh start, the party pouch is definitely re-usable. Before re-using wash thoroughly. Simply remove the pouring spout, fill the reservoir with hot soapy water and be sure to swish the soapy water throughout the party pouch to make sure to get all the corners and to remove any dried liquid. Rinse with warm water until it runs clear. Allow the party pouch to dry thoroughly.
A. Simply remove the pouring spout by pulling it out. It does not twist in or out, it simply gets pulled or pushed in. Once you remove the spout, you can pour up to 1.5L of your beverage of choice in the party pouch. Simply push the pouring spout back into its place. You should hear 2 clicks to know it is securely in place and there will be no leakage. If you forcefully push the spout more than the 2 clicks, the pouring spout will permanently lock into place. Before first use, the pouring spout has a red perforated seal. Simply pull the seal off so the entire red seal is removed. The pouring spout also includes a small clear cap. This clear cap can be kept if you would like to keep it on the pouring spout when not in use, however it is not necessary. Once your party pouch is filled, you can place it in your secret insulated pocket in the PortoVino. Align the pouring spout with the hole in the insulated pocket. Zip up your insulated pocket. When you are ready to pour, simply open up the designer flap on the exterior of the purse, pull out the spout and place your thumb on the top of the spout and your index finger and middle finger on each of the side levers. Pull up with your index finger and middle finger and your drink will pour from the spout. Make sure you have a glass under the pouring spout to collect your drink.
A. Nope! The Party Pouch uses the same material as boxed wine bladders and does not add any taste to your wine. As a matter of fact, the material of the party pouch prevents the oxidation of your wine so it will stay fresher longer.
A. Yes! You can use carbonated beverages in your party pouch, but because carbonation will create pressure, you will need to begin pouring within 1 hour of putting carbonated beverages in your party pouch.
A. Nope! The Party Pouch filled fits perfectly into a side pocket leaving plenty of room for your other items.
A. Nope! It is very secure and with proper use, you should not have any issue with leaking. The spout has a 2 click system so as long as you hear the 2 clicks, the spout will be securely in place. After pouring and you allow it to completely pour in your glass, the spout does not leak. To take extra precautions, you can either use the clear plastic cap that is included with the party pouch or you can simply swivel the spout upside down when you are not pouring.

A. The PortoVino bags’ insulated pocket is generally sized to accommodate the PortoVino party pouch - which holds 1.5L of wine (2 bottles). Most boxed wine bladders hold 3L (4 bottles of wine) which will be too big to fit in the insulated pocket. Boxed wine bladders that are 1.5L or smaller will fit in the PortoVino. The one exception is the PortoVino DayPack which can hold a 3L boxed wine bladder, although it does include the standard 1.5L PortoVino party pouch.
