2. Wine opener
The benefit of decanting is that it lets your wine breath. Wine feeds on oxygen and by decanting your wine you are allowing it the best chance to open up the flavour and for the structure to soften, leaving the wine at its best for tasting.
4. Wine seal
Wine seals are handy when you haven’t finished a full bottle of wine and it isn’t a screw cap bottle. Vacuum pump style stoppers are designed to keep your wine as fresh as when you first opened it.
5. Wine spout
A stainless steel wine spout attaches to the mouth of the bottle and allows for a smooth and clean pour into a wine glass, and they are designed to funnel the wines aromas. They are also an inexpensive handy way to prevent any excess drops spilling from the bottle and allow a more seamless and professional wine pour.
That’s it, our top 5 accessories to help enhance your wine drinking experience. Happy sipping!
