Riddle us this, friends: What’s a celebration without wine? Indoors, outdoors — no matter where your party’s taking place, wine is an essential part of any proper soiree. But whether you’re the hostess with the mostest or an attendee volunteering to bring the booze, sometimes it’s in your best interest to ditch the traditional bottle and pour the contents into a pretty insulated wine growler to keep your spirits in the best shape.
Though wine probably isn’t the first alcoholic beverage you think of when you hear the term “growler,” these glass, ceramic or sometimes even plastic bottles are an excellent resource for storing, transporting and serving your favorite drink. And because they’re insulated, your reds stay room temperature while your whites stay cool and crisp (or vice-versa, however you prefer) for hours at a time. Plus, growlers come in all different sizes, so you can BYO cup or contribute a couple bottles in one container. Depending on how much wine your guests can guzzle down in a sitting, we’ve rounded up the best insulated wine growlers for your next outing or soiree.

1. Simple Modern Spirit Wine Bundle
Get sippin’ in the park with this comprehensive wine growler set. You get a 25 oz. insulated wine bottle and 12 oz. wine tumblers, which means you can bring 49 oz. to your picnic or the friend’s backyard party. And it’ll stay cool the entire time. The growlers are made out of food-grade stainless steel and have a special copper-coated layer to keep your wine cool all day long.
2. Summit Legacy Products 25oz Vacuum Insulated Wine Growler
Perfect for romantic picnics and trips to the winery, the Summit Legacy insulated wine growler’s glossy teal casing is so alluring it practically screams “drink from me.” Constructed from 18/8 pro-grade stainless steel and powder coated for maximum durability, this fancy wine bottle features a BPA-free plastic screw-cap to prevent leaks while a silicone sleeve protects against dents and scratches. It holds 25 ounces, or one full bottle, of wine and because it’s vacuum insulated, your favorite spirit stays at its ideal temperature all day long.
3. BrüMate Uncork'd XL 14oz Wine Glass Tumbler
Who says growlers are for sharing? Not BrüMate, that’s for sure. This insulated tumbler is redefining what it means to “BYO.” It holds 14 ounces of wine — aka the perfect individual serving. So the next time you hit up happy hour at your friends house, bring your own drink and leisurely sip. Plus, the cup is triple insulated, so your wine stays the perfect temperature all night long and the exterior is condensation-free, which means you can nurse it and still be able to hold it comfortably.
4. Snowfox Insulated Stainless Steel Wine Glasses
You can pour an entire 750 mL bottle of wine into this bottle, and it’ll stay cold for hours. Plus, this bottle won’t sweat—even when you are on a hot day. The stopper of this bottle emulates a wine cork, so it keeps your wine fresh and sealed. It has a wider mouth than most insulated bottles, which makes it easy to dole out to friends.
