I have a feeling this might be an interesting thread, what sort of wine gadgets do you own or are maybe looking to get? I notice that there is now a Sulphate filter about to come onto the market (rather pointless) but was wondering what gadgets everyone has at home.
For me I have a few bits but nothing crazy:
Wine Society cork screw - very good as it has an integrated foil remover
’Corksicle’ but with a pourer - integrated wine aerator and chiller that sits inside a bottle for white wine
Conundrum wine decanter
Vacuvins - HIGHLY recommend getting a set of these, they are well made vacuum stoppers that help keep wine fresher for longer
Wine fridge - not really a gadget but its wine related!
I would love to invest in a Coravin however I don’t really have any wines that justify the need for one or indeed the cost of the system plus the upkeep.
I am tempted to start a corkscrew collection, my uncle has a fair few ranging from the novelty as well as different ways of removing the cork - things like the Ah So cork remover as well as a pressure needle system which puts compressed gas into the bottle which then forces the cork out.
What sort of gadgets do you have?
