As the weather gets cooler and we head back inside, it’s always fun to brighten up our days with something new.
The next time you need to decant a bottle of your favourite red, think lab equipment. Erlenmeyer flasks are perfect for decanting, and they look great too. Unleash your inner nerd and amuse your guests with this unique way of decanting wine.
Wine-Infused Tea & Coffee
For those of you who love caffeine and wine, how about some wine-infused tea or coffee? These are great for that in-between time when you might feel it’s too late for tea or coffee but too early for wine. They are the perfect segue from late afternoon to evening beverage. There are several varieties available online and at specialty stores.
Wine Bottle Thermometers
Chilling your wine to the exact temperature is usually a hit-or-miss type of situation. Not anymore! You can get these cool (pun intended) wine bottle thermometers that will tell you exactly what the temp is inside your bottle, and you can even access it with your smart phone. A little something for that wine lover who has everything or didn’t know they needed this.
Expandable Bathtub Tray
There are wine glass caddies available for the shower; however, if you’re not careful when sipping in the shower you can end up with watered-down wine. You may prefer a nice soak in the tub with your favourite book and a glass of wine instead. These expandable trays are perfect for those cool nights when only a good book, bubbles and wine will do.
