What’s your favourite wine paraphernalia?

I use Proton Scientific for my Labware from Ebay. UK based and tell you the brand, whilst others sometimes show known brands in the photo (Pyrex, Rocwing,Academy etc) then deliver a chinese branded product.

£5.98 for a standard 250ml Simax flask doesn’t seem too bad to me.

That looks unusually like a …, no I’m not going there…and they are available on ebay IF you are interested.

AMAZING setup, my mother was a laboratory technician, should have asked for some flasks!

I like that a lot - this could be the version for the medical fraternity. Reminds me a bit of the “Duck” decanters that cost an awful lot more.


I’m not sure I could clear the image of its previous life from my head whilst using that.

However, here’s an ideal wine to drink from such a vessel (Moser XV post), a perfect synergy.:innocent:

For anyone interested in the 1 litre flask pictured here’s an ebay link, £9.99 delivered. The Simax flasks have a good shape to the mouth and are slightly finer at the rim than some which feels and looks nicer imo.
[I’ve recommended that company twice now, so worth stating I’ve no connection other than as a satisfied customer].

Yet Riedel make a decanter at an obscene price that is no different from the humble urine bottle, all you have to say is “this is my new Riedel decanter” and all is well…

On the other hand we have all drunk wines that would find that to be a perfect receptacle.

I provided a link to just such a wine.:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: :grinning:

The inspiration for the Reidel Duck isn’t hard to see, must have been a big night out in Kufstein when they floated that past the marketing department?

Perhaps we could replace the 100 point wine rating scale with a new one using appropriate receptacles as the indicator or quality?
Inspired by the Reidel Duck, here’s one for the lower end of the scale…


SO glad to hear other people are using the IKEA £1 glasses! We have them too (when we don’t smash them…) and they’re really great.

We also love our ice bucket. It’s nothing fancy, quite pretty but not expensive, it’s just something daft we like to use when we want to add a bit of flair to an evening (even if it’s just a #WineWednesday…)

@Rowley_Birkin_II That is a very cool photo!

…or Peedel decanter?


Just stumbled upon this Riedel decanter on their website and it made me think of this topic - very pretty, but surely this is just asking for trouble?! :joy:


As someone obsessed with cleaning all I can think of is “how the hell would I clean this beauty??!” :dizzy_face: beautiful, but totally impractical, surely…?!

With one of these bad boys or decanter beads! :wink:

Is it too early to ask hubby for a Xmas present??:joy:

Knock yourself out …£2 :joy::joy:,
Ask for diamonds instead :wink::wink::wink:

I’m a simple girl with modest wishes, clearly! :wink:

Here’s something that’s on my wish list…

Myself and three friends can drink whilst recumbent, no glasses to wash and you can’t fall off the floor.:+1:
