Wine Glasses
It ain’t a wine party if you ain’t got the wine glasses. Wine can only be best enjoyed in a wine glass. Wine glasses allow the wine to open up and release delicate flavours and aromas. The shape of the wine glass also determines where the wine lands on your palate which makes a big difference in how you experience the wine. The wine glass’s stem also ensures your hand doesn’t warm and close off the wine. And we’ve got a fine selection of crystal glasses for reds whites and sparkling wines from Lucaris that will ensure that your guests will drink the wine at its best.
Wine Accessories
A lot of wines are closed under cork so you should keep a few wine openers handy to ensure that the wine keeps flowing. Do check our our range of easy to use, nifty wine openers.
A decanter is vital to a wine party especially if you’ve chosen to open some premium and full bodied red wines from Italy, France and Spain. The decanter is a tastefully designed, handcrafted crystal vessel whose sole purpose is to make the red wine breather and unlock its aromas and flavours that would otherwise take too long to fully open up as the wine has sat under bottle for several years. The decanter in a matter of a few hours, magically opens up big red wines, allowing them to fully breathe and be enjoyed at their very best.
Beers & Meads
So not everyone may have a palate for wine but they’ll get there eventually. In the meantime, make sure they have a splendid time with a chilled bunch of international and homegrown beers and meads from our selection.
