07 Jul Accessories Every Wine Drinker Needs
The only things you need to enjoy a bottle of wine are the wine and a way to open it. But if you would like to enhance your experience, there are a few additional things you can use, starting with glasses! Let’s talk about some of the things that make a wine-drinking experience the best it can be.
Firstly, a good wine bottle opener is important. While you can buy twist-top bottles or get a simple corkscrew from the grocery store, making sure opening your wine is easy certainly helps start the mood off right. There are simple options like classic corkscrews or you can get an automatic bottle opener. Figure out what works best for you.
Bottle stoppers are another great thing to keep around. While you can recork your bottle after you open it, wine stoppers can be fun and decorative. They are plenty effective to keep your wine closed and you can get ones that reflect your personal style.
Having a smaller bottle can come in handy if you’re the kind of person who only likes to have a glass or two of wine a night. Storing the remaining wine in a smaller bottle will help to avoid oxygenation. Reducing air in the bottle will help your wine stay fresh longer, so consider getting a smaller half bottle and transferring your leftovers.
A decanter is not only a beautiful piece, but it helps maximize the surface area and all the wine to breathe. Not all wines gain many benefits from decanting, but it won’t hurt any wine so whether it is for a practical purpose or for decoration, a decanter is a great choice.
Wine discs allow you to pour your wine without spilling any. We all know when you pour from a bottle there is almost always that small drip. While this may not be of great concern to everyone, if you’d like to avoid it or have had one too many drips on your white tablecloth, consider using a wine disk.
