Electric Wine Opener - Stylish Stainless Steel Wine Chiller

A lot of people struggle to open a bottle of wine and it can be easy to go a little too far with the corkscrew and break the cork, resulting in little pieces of cork in your wine. This battery operated wine opener is so quick and easy that is a great addition to your home bar. You just put it on top of the bottle, push the button and it grabs the cork and pulls it from the bottle. A set of batteries will open at least 30 bottles of wine.

Riedel Wine Glasses - Quality wine glasses

It's true, drinking wine from a good glass makes the wine taste better... well OK I have no scientific proof but it's true for me. Riedel wine glasses are beautiful to drink out of but they are fragile and you do need to treat them lovingly. Perfect for a wine connoisseur but if you are party people you might like to check out something sturdier like this selection of wine glasses

Riedel Wine Series Mixed Cabernet/Viognier Glasses, Set of 4
Riedel Wine Series Mixed Cabernet/Viognier Glasses, Set of 4

This set contains 2 Cabernet glasses and 2 Viognier glasses. Non lead crystal quality glass.

      I've gotten my wife the electric opener and chiller, but had not seen the decanters. I may have to help one of those find its way under the Christmas tree this year!
