I’ve got everything from the perfect wine glass to how to keep your favourite bubbly cool. Let’s have a look shall we?
1. Sommelier 6 Bottle Wine Cellar
Let’s kick things off by starting right at the beginning of wine night. In order to get the best flavours out of any wine, it needs to be at the correct temperature. For whites and roses, usually they taste the best when they’re cool, whereas reds are best drunk warm. So how do you control the temperatures so carefully to make sure you drink it properly? Well this nifty wine fridge will do just that for you. With an adjustable thermostat and an electronic display, it will make sure that your reds stay warm and your whites stay cool. It’s a great product and a perfect size for a home bar, kitchen or living room. The cooler utilises thermoelectric technology so it is highly efficient and has a quiet running operation. It has a gorgeous sleek finish with a glass door and removable shelves. Drink your wine at the right temperature to get the best flavour and experience out of wine night.

4. Open Up Soft Wine Glasses
Not only is this a popular item among our customers but it is also a great vessel to drink wine from.

Made by Kwarx, these glasses have a highly resistant finish and sheer transparency. Able to hold 470 ml of your favourite wine, whether it be white, rose or red, these Open Up Soft Wine Glasses are the bees knees when it comes to glasses, especially for wine night if you’re tasting new ones too.

10. Wine Glass Plate Clips
And last but not least, one of the most important things about wine night is the food! Food that compliments the wine you’re tasting – such as awesome cheese. If you’re having a big wine night or a little one, food is always a key factor. However, do you ever struggle to find somewhere to set your wine down when you’re trying to eat? Well we’ve solved that problem once and for all with this handy little device. These wine glass plate clips, or ‘Buffet Maid Clips’ simply attach onto the side of your plate and will hold your wine glass snugly by the the stem, making it easy for you to nibble on your cheese and hors d’oeuvres whilst still enjoying your wine.

So that wraps up this week’s All You Need For. Now that you’re armed with all you need for an excellent wine night, I hope you have a great time and don’t forget the cheese. If I could’ve given it its own point, I would’ve done but we don’t sell cheese I’m afraid – a fact I do truly despise. However, check back in the next Thursday for more All You Need For items helping you be prepared for any party or occasion! #HappyCocktailing and #Cheese&Wine
