[ SEEDLINGS ] WHAT’S NEW TO BUY, TRY, OR DO

WAVE AWAY THE HEADACHES Wine allergy sufferers, raise your glass! In just minutes, The WandTM filter absorbs and removes allergens from a glass of wine to alleviate the side effects that can take the fun out of drinking. Soak and swirl the individually-wrapped patented filter in a glass of red, white, or rosé to rid the wine of the histamines and sulfites that cause congestion and headaches—without any chemicals. Developed by a biomedical researcher (and fellow allergy suffer), The Wand also works to reduce skin rashes, bloating, and even hangovers. Can be used with sparkling wines and beer too. Available in convenient 8- and 24-packs so you can have plenty on hand whenever you want to enjoy wine without the worry. drinkpurewine.com

HOLD EVERYTHING This slim stowaway goes from flat to functional in just three simple steps. The German-designed meori® Wine Carrier has a padded bottle insert for wines and spirits to keep your precious purchases upright and well-protected. Its reinforced handles and interior mesh pockets (perfect for toting small gadgets) makes struggling with an awkward cardboard case a thing of the past. Remove the insert and it becomes a versatile carrier that can handle up to 65 lbs. An elastic band keeps it completely flat when not in use, so you can conveniently tuck it away in the trunk of your car. Available in five stylish colors at meori.com.

CRAFTED CRAVINGS Bourbon Barrel Cider, Raspberry Reserve, and Ruby Port aren’t just names of local beverages, they’re also ingredients in mouth-watering caramels and decadent truffles handmade by Poughkeepsie’s Queen Choco, who can often be found at local craft beverage events. This fall, in addition to collaborations with producers like Bad Seed Cider, you’ll be able to find a new line of chocolate bars at Adams Fairacre Farms. In the meantime, try to score a highly-coveted, good and gooey chocolate shot glass filled with Black Dirt Bourbon Caramel at an upcoming festival. Follow Queen Choco on Facebook for updates and events.

TIPSY, ON PURPOSE More than a conversation starter, the stemless Aura Glass pivots to aerate your drink and prevents it from spilling at the same time. With just the touch of a finger, the glass twirls 360-degrees to release the flavors and aromas of its contents, anchored by a stainless steel ball that provides its center of gravity. So go ahead, spin, swirl, and release that bouquet! The one-of-a-kind Aura Glass is cleverly engineered (in the USA) to prevent it from toppling over, and comes with a custom wooden coaster to keep it standing straight up to fill. Available in sets of two at auraglass.com.
