There’s some so very special about a glass of your favourite wine, and if you like nothing more than a large glass of vino at the end of a hard day at work, then here are some great products that should find their way onto your wishlist…
If you’re partial to a glass of white or rose wine then you’ll need to keep it chilled. You can chill red wine too if you’re that way inclined. You can just pop it in the fridge but if you’ve got a purpose-built wine cooler then you don’t have to fight your way past the yoghurts and cheese to get to it. With a wine cooler you can also easily see when you need to restock it! You can find some excellent Rangemaster coolers over at hispek.com.
An Amazing Wine Holder
Just standing up your bottle of wine on the table is pretty boring really. Instead, how about putting it in an amazing wine holder such as this? If you’ve got guests round then they’ll be blown away by how cool this looks and will likely go and gets themselves one as soon as they leave!
You can’t simply grab a bottle of wine and pour it into a glass. No, you have to make sure it’s at the right temperature, and therefore a wine thermometer is a great gift for any wine connoisseur. Apparently the temperature at which you should serve wine is very specific and can differ even within the different types of red or white wine. Here’s a handy list of the recommended temperatures.
A Quirky Decanter
Having a bottle of wine at the table is so uncouth and therefore the wine should be decanted into a, erm, decanter. You can get normal, bog standard decanters, but everyone’s got one of those (haven’t they?), so opt for something a little more unusual. Some of the quirky decanters in this blog post are works of art, and would make an excellent centrepiece at the dining table.
Any wine expert knows that decanting wine and letting it breather improves its flavour, so using an aerator is a great way of doing this much faster than letting it breathe in a decanter or carafe. Simply pour the wine through it and into the glass and you’ll have a perfectly aerated glass of wine and it will, of course, taste hugely different and much better.
Wine Stopper Combination Lock
If you’re sick of people stealing your wine then a wine stopper combination lock is the answer. Simply pop the stopper in the top of the bottle as normal and then set your combination code. You bottle of wine is now protected from wine thieves and ensures you won’t be disappointed the next time you go to the fridge – until you realise you’ve already drank it.
