It’s not quite picnic season, but we’re getting close. Here is an accessory to consider for outdoor excursions, a tote bag not only for wine but also cheese. Made of practical khaki canvas with brown leatherette trim, it has an insulated interior with capacity for two bottles of wine and some cheese, several exterior pockets and a shoulder strap. It comes with a wooden cutting board, cheese knife and waiter’s corkscrew, but no glassware or crockery.
Two-bottle insulated wine and cheese cooler bag, $72, Annie’s Blue Ribbon General Store, 232 Fifth Avenue (Carroll Street), Park Slope, Brooklyn, 718-522-9848, blueribbongeneralstore.com.
