Essential Wine Tools for Wine Lovers

One of my hats is an independent wine consultant and, as you can guess, it’s one of my favorite roles because I really enjoy wine. Over the years, I found these three wine tools are essential for wine lovers. Here you go!

Wine Opener

If you’re a regular wine drinker or a wine consultant like me, there are certain tools that should be in your kitchen drawer or wine bar.

Let’s start with wine openers…

My favorite is the Hicoup Wine Opener. During a dinner party, one of my wine-loving friends recommended this wine opener. It’s ergonomic and it works well too. Cheers to that.

But, if you have a hard time with a waiter’s corkscrew, then try this one. It’s the Cork Pops Original Wine Bottle Opener It’s actually kind of fun. One crazy night we just kept using it to open bottles, even the crap wines, and this was before I’d discovered clean-crafted wine. We definitely regretted that later… Yikes.

Red Wine Stain Remover

Honestly, I didn’t believe this Chateau Spill Red Wine Stain Remover would work until I went to a party and someone spilled an entire glass of wine on my friend who was wearing a white dress. The hostess immediately loaned her a dress while she took the stain out. And, voila, the red wine stain was gone. I don’t know what’s in this red wine stain remover but it’s a must. I may buy an extra bottle and keep it in my wine carrier for emergency spills during my wine tastings.

VacuVin Pump

We all have those nights when we don’t finish the bottle so rather than try to stick the cork back in and risk a spill, the best way to preserve your wine is using the Vacu Vin Wine Saver Pump with Vacuum Bottle Stoppers. You put the stopper in and use the pump until you hit a little click. You remove air from your wine bottle to keep wine tasting new for up to a week!

There are my favorite wine tools. You’ll find them in my kitchen drawer. Cheers to living well and loving wine. If you’re interested in learning more about being a wine consultant, let’s connect. Find me on Instagram and request more information on my wine link.
