Wine is a perfect drink for many occasions – the end of a long day, dinner with friends, or event a summer afternoon outside. So it’s no surprise that there are tons of gadgets out there dedicated to drinking wine. Here are some of the best gadgets for wine for 2018.
Coravin Model Two Wine System
The Coravin Model Two fixes the dilemma most wine drinkers face – to open the bottle or let it age longer? This system allows you to pour wine from a bottle without damaging the cork, meaning once you poured yourself a glass, you can let it sit on its own! A needle is inserted into the cork, then pressurized to release wine. Once removed, the cork reseals and continues to protect the wine. Buy it here.
Vacu Vin Wine Savers
While the Coravin Model two is great for sneaking glasses of wine from a bottle that you ultimately want to age longer, the Vacu Vin Wine Saver is great to keep an open bottle fresh. The Vacu Vin uses a stopper and pump to seal an uncorked bottle preventing oxygen from getting in, the main culprit of turning wine sour. Because the seal is airtight, the Vacu Vin can keep a bottle fresh up to a week after it is open. Buy it here.
Oyster Rechargeable Cordless Wine Opener with Chiller
While a regular corkscrew manual wine opener has opened many a bottle, there are many electric wine openers available now that helps reduce the amount of broken corks. Let’s face it, there’s nothing worse than a broken cork stuck in a new bottle of wine. The Oster Cordless Wine Opener removes the cork with just a push of a button. It is ergonomically designed so that the handle fits comfortably in your hand and allows for a firm grip. Bonus – it also comes with a stainless steel wine chiller. But it here.
Sometimes there’s nothing worse when pouring yourself a drink than realizing your white wine is no longer chilled. Rather than drag an ice bucket out every time you enjoy a glass, use a few Wine Pearls to keep your drink cold. These stainless steel ovals are made with food-grade freeze gel and can help keep wine chilled for up to 30 minutes. Buy them here.
The Eto Decanter is a beautiful and interestingly designed decanter that aims to keep your wine perfect without wasting a drop. Pour your wine inside and let it sit and breath to open up the flavors. You can pour wine straight from the decanter, then seal it to preserve whatever wine you don’t finish, ensuring you don’t waste a drop. Pre-order it here.
