Like most women, I love to accessorize! Here are 6 of my favourite wine accessories:
1. Wine Glass Writer Pens
I only discovered these recently and I love them! You can doodle all over your wine glass and it simply washes off with a cloth and water. A great way to personalise glasses at a dinner party so everyone can remember exactly which glass is theirs! The pens also work on various other surfaces and containers, which I find handy in the kitchen. A versatile wine accessory!
2. My WineStein
Is this not the perfect glass for October, or should I say Oktoberfest?? Whether you’re a beer or wine drinker this glass let’s you have it both ways – elegant wine glass on the inside and manly beer stein on the outside, the best of both worlds!
3. Ice bucket
Summer is on our doorsteps and yes this is going to sound lazy, but instead of keeping your bottle in the fridge where you have to get up and get it, just pop it in your ice bucket and keep it by your side. A man/woman’s best friend!
4. Cooler bag
I love these bags! They help keep the wine relativity chilled, look funky and make it easy to transport your wine out to your favourite BYO restaurant or over to a mates BBQ. Plus a tip: always get one which carries at least 2 bottles, it’s smart to have a backup – especially if it’s dinner with the in-laws 😉
5. My Corkscrew
This of course is the number one. You’ll find that most bottles are screw cap these days but I bet at some point you won’t realise you’ve picked up a bottle with a cork closure and then it literally could be the worst night of your life if you can’t get into the wine. Also don’t bother with those fancy, bulky and usually expensive corkscrews, ones like the one pictured below are truly the best (ask anyone working in the wine industry). They do the job and are easy to use.
6. Sparkling wine stopper
Everyone says they don’t need one of these because they drink the lot in one go. I normally do too, but I like to pop one of these on in-between glasses to preserve the freshness as much as possible as I normally Iike to pre-taste test before the guests arrive so I can make sure it is a-okay… quality assurance! Plus you can get some super cute and ultra-glitzy stoppers covered in diamantes and cute bits and pieces these days… accessorize girls!
