Last week I shared with you my simple wine tasting methods. I hope you have already tried that. This week I would like to tell you about a little wine accessory that I use to keep my wine at a decent drinking temperature. I use a wine chiller stick. Just let me tell you why.
You know that red and white wine have different drinking temperature. If you want to go in further detail you can find that every wine type has its own desired drinking temperature.
Here is what I do when I just want to have a few glasses of wine with my girlfriend after a tough day at work.
Keep My Red Wine From Getting Too Warm
I usually store a few bottles of red wine in my cellar where the temperature is about 55°F. I take the bottle inside and open it. I leave it for some time to breath a bit. Then I pour both of us a glass. I like it to be quite warm at home. But my red wine prefers cooler temperatures. To prevent going back and forth to the cellar I use the wine chiller stick. Once well frozen it can keep that nice wine temperature for up to an hour. It is usually enough to finish the wine.
Preserve White Wine Well Chilled for Up to an Hour
When my girlfriend prepares the dinner she usually picks white wine. White wine tastes way better when is chilled to about 40°F-50°F. That is why she puts the bottle in the fridge for an hour. After that she inserts the wine chiller stick and we can enjoy the wine rather than going back and forth to the fridge when my glass is empty.
My wine chiller stick has a built-in aerator and double layer pourer that make it an all-in-one solution for any wine type. The double-layer pourer helps me pour confidently without any drips, while my wine aerates evenly as I serve it.
