A sturdy and solid wine opener to open your favourite Old World Wine is a must have. Everyone prefers and trusts the good old butterfly opener.
A perfect glass is what makes all the difference to how your wine will taste.
An excellent French vino might end up tasting horrible if poured and served in a beer glass.
Invest in some simple inexpensive Ice Buckets.
They are the crux to your wine tasting and it would be so when the wine is chilled to the perfect temperature.
An ideal temperature to chill your wines is- Sparkling Wine: 6-8 degree Celsius; White Wine / Rose: 8-12 degree Celsius; Red Wine: 14-18 degree Celsius; Sweet Wine: 6-8 degree Celsius.Also, make sure you store your wines very carefully in a cool dark place where there is no direct sunlight.
Wines with cork should always be placed horizontally so that the cork is in constant contact with the wine and does not dry up.
