For the wine sophisticate...
If you’re looking for the ultimate treat for the wine connoisseur in your life, impress them with the Decanting Wine Pourer and Waiter's Friend Corkscrew from Menu. The pourer features a specially patented design that pours, filters and oxygenates the wine as you pour...but don’t worry if you have no idea what this lingo means, we’re sure your vino connoisseur friends will, especially if they’re as knowledgable about wine as they say they are!
Treat them to a gift with wow factor this Christmas and impress them with The Wine Breather Carafe from Menu. It matures and softens wine as much as several months in as little as two minutes. It also breathes wine in an instant, enabling ready to drink wine to be enjoyed immediately. It’s the perfect gift for if your wine lover received a bottle (or two) this Christmas that they can’t wait to crack open.
If you’re looking for a gift to provide a solution to the age old problem of what temperature to serve wine, the award winning Corkcicle Wine Cooler offers a unique way to chill wine from the inside the bottle.
As the wine fanatic in your life will know, the temperature of a wine can truly affect its taste. Wine left out becomes warm, tasting too much like alcohol, yet wine left in an ice bucket becomes too cold with no flavour. The Corkcicle can both chill and aerate wine for up to an hour.
Intrigued as to how it works?
If the wine lover in your life prefers White Wine or Rose, the Corkcicle Wine Cooler can be placed in the freezer for an hour, then into the bottle of wine to keep it cool for up to an hour, or until the bottle is finished.
Alternatively if they're partial to a glass of red wine, the Corkcicle can be left in the freezer for 15 minutes before being placed in that much loved bottle of Merlot, Shiraz or other red delights, it will slightly cool the wine whilst enhancing its flavour.
For the wine-lover with an eye for design...
If the wine lover in your life has an eye for design, the purity of the Bolly Wine Cooler from Alessi makes for not only a practical but also stylish gift. Jasper Morrison's sleek design is made from mirror polished stainless steel and makes for a sophisticated alternative to classically shaped coolers.
Perfect for enjoying a glass of fizz over the festive period, each of these Moya Champagne Flutes from LSA flute is mouth-blown by skilled artisans. The tapered waist flares out to a sturdy base, creating an elegant silhouette. Ideal for a New Year's Eve toast whilst looking great on the dinner table.
For the collector of novelty wine instruments…
Perfect for parties and celebrations throughout the festive season, the Ours & Mine Charms & Stopper is great for all occasions. The 6 coloured charms hug the stem of the wine glass - perfect for the tricky task of trying to find your glass amongst others at a festive celebration.
This Alessi Alessandro M Corkscrew has been designed by Alessandro Mendini and has been created as part of the company's partnership with (RED) to raise awareness and funds to support the global fight against AIDS.
