Here are some fun wine gadgets that I’ve run across lately. As you know, Monica and I enjoy a nice glass of wine every now and then. You may have caught our Wednesday Wine List a time or two as well. Along those lines I’m sharing some fun little things I discovered while researching the wonderful world of wine!
I think I’m most excited about this dispenser for boxed wine. I did a Wednesday Wine List review of Black Box Wines a couple weeks ago and subsequently ran across this great item. It is called the Boxxle Premium Bag-In-Box wine dispenser. It actually looks like a small appliance. I think it looks much nicer sitting in your pantry or on your countertop than the cardboard box. How great is it to have wine-on-tap and it looks good too! It is available from their website or Amazon.
Next up is the Vinturi wine aereator. This product has been around for quite some time but it works! It can be hand held over your glass and then you pour wine through it to aerate, or infuse oxygen, into a glass of wine. The process enhances the flavor, bouquet, and finish of most any wine. It is a great thing to have in those instances when you don’t have an hour or two to let a bottle “breathe” before serving.
It also has an available stand so you just position your glass beneath and pour.
With summer upon us I’m thinking about keeping Rose’ and Sauvignon Blanc chilled while on the boat or at the beach. I found this in Wine Enthusiast catalog. The Winesulator. It holds a standard bottle of wine and is supposed to keep it perfectly chilled for up to 24 hours. I haven’t tried it yet but I’ve placed my order. I’ll let you know if it works!
Okay, I admit that this one is a bit “out there”, but if I ever get to take a grand wine tasting trip, I’m getting one of these bags!
Now back to the more practical. A friend of ours sent this idea to me and I decided to give it a try. With all this wine “tasting” Monica and I do these actually come in handy. Also, I might mention that her husband is a dentist so I think she is just looking out for us! Ha!
One box contains 12 individually packaged “wipes”. Think hand wipes. They fit perfectly in even the smallest purse and are quite refreshing. You just wipe your teeth. I found them on Amazon. I love them! Thank you Cheri!
This is it for now. If you see anything interesting please pass along. I’ll be glad to try it out for you!
