2. Wine + Swords= Fun!

Who doesn’t love champagne?  And who doesn’t love swords??  Lets put them together!  Originating from a method used by Napoleonic troops to open bottles of wine, sabering champagne has become the trick de rigeur for any party.  This beautiful Laiole Classic sabre à champagne has a stainless steel blade and olive wood handle.  Just as perfect as a conversation piece as it is useful for opening that bottle of bubbly.

3. A wine cellar to be proud of!

As our interest(obsession) with wine grows, we all start picking up some “nicer” bottles to store away and age.  To do that properly, temperature and humidity must be controlled to provide the perfect aging environments for our precious bottles.  This Devanti 51 bottle Storage Cellar is the perfect place to ensure those special bottles are maintained in the perfect atmosphere to age for years to come.

4. The ultimate corkscrew for wine lovers

Remember those bottles you’ve been aging in that cellar above for a few years?  They’re ready to crack open!  But, cork stoppers in wine can become fragile over the years.  And we wouldn’t want to break the cork apart before we could get to that amazing wine beneath it.  Enter The Durand Corkscrew: part wine key, part Ah So, its the perfect tool to extract old corks intact and ensure the nectar hidden behind is ready to pour into your glass.

5. An elegant wine decanter for a classy meal

  1. Riedel has been at the top of the wine glass game for a long time, and their decanters only up that game.  The Riedel Cornetto Decanter is an exquisite handmade crystal decanter that will not only aerate your wines prior to drinking, but do it with elegant style.

6. Wine Travel in style

Remember the last time you toured wine country and had to count all the bottles you purchased?  No room left in the suitcase to pack them all?  Next time, take the VinGarde Valise with you and you troubles will be solved.  This case can haul 12 bottles of your collection while still remaining under the airline bag weight limit, and will protect them far better than that pair of jeans you wrapped around them last time!

7. Keep those wine tasting notes in order

It’s hard to remember all the wineswe try.  Between our own bottles, those shared with friends, tastings, winery visits, etc.  it can be a lot to remember!  The Wine Folly Wine Journal helps to make sure we keep all those notes handy, either to remember wines to purchase later or reflect back on when tasting new vintages.  Every wine lover should have one of these to help keep all those tasting notes tracked!

8. A beautiful cheese and charcuterie board to pair with your best wines

It’s pretty rare that a wine lover isn’t also a cheese lover.  After a visit to the markets and a cheese and charcuterie haul that rivals our weekly grocery budget, they deserve better than a dinner plate to be served on!  This  Toscana Acacia Wood Charcuterie Board fits the bill perfectly for a classic and elegant way to serve  all that prosciutto and Brie.  The live edge wood adds that extra character to make this stand out from other options.
