I believe that every bottle of wine deserves to be served with the best wine gear – from corkscrews to glasses to coasters and aerators. Do you secretly desire to impress your friends and family at your next gathering with the latest and greatest wine gadgets? How would you like to speak knowledgeably about how you made your choice of the best wine gear for you? Read on and learn all you ever wanted to know about wine gear options and find the best wine gear that will work for your wine drinking pleasure!

What is wine gear?

Wine gear is accessories that you can use to make your wine drinking experience more pleasurable. The best wine gear also ensures that your wine is:

  • Stored correctly prior to serving
  • Served at the proper temperature
  • Utilizing the appropriate glass
  • Suitably aerated (if necessary)
  • Transported undamaged
  • Opened safely without corking
  • Preserved effectively

That is asking a lot from wine gear, but the wine accessories companies spend a lot of money each year to guarantee your complete satisfaction with your wine selections.

What Does Every Wine Drinker Need?

The answer to this question varies by individual wine consumer. At the very least, if you are going to serve wine in your house, at a bare minimum you need to have the following:

  • A place to store your wine, such as a wine rack
  • A method of opening your wine, such as a corkscrew
  • A means to serve your wine, such as wine glasses

Oftentimes, the most expensive accessory is not the best. Do additional research and determine what your budget can bear. Whether you follow the fancy route and install a dual-zone wine fridge or keep it basic with a three-bottle wine rack, choose the gear that has the best-verified customer reviews and doesn’t break the bank.

Sure, there are a lot of fancy wine accessories – and I’ll review them below – but as long as you have a wine kit that suits you, then uncork a bottle of wine and bottoms up! To determine the best wine gear available, I researched various experts and customer reviews from sites such as Best Reviews, Business Insider, Food and Wine, Wirecutter, Home Stratosphere, Wine Folly, Epicurious, Coolingwine.com, Wine Enthusiast, and Amazon to compile the best of the best in each wine gear category.

What is the Best Corkscrew or Wine Opener?

A corkscrew, or wine opener, is a device that is used to pull corks from bottles. Usually, it possesses a spiral metal rod that is inserted into a wine cork and then extracted with a handle. There are a number of different types of corkscrews:

  1. Twist corkscrews
  2. Waiters’ corkscrews
  3. Rabbit ears or winged corkscrews
  4. Electric wine opener
  5. Air pressure wine opener
  6. Air pump corkscrews
  7. Lever corkscrews
  8. Ah so openers

Choosing the best wine opener is a matter of preference and comfort. I prefer a winged corkscrew as, for me, it is the easiest to use and I end up with fewer cork crumbles. For some reason, I can never get the electric wine openers to function properly or it is usually out of charge when I pick one up to use. I have many friends, former waiter staff, who swear by the waiters’ corkscrews, though I find them a bit difficult to use. Try each style and decide what works best for you.

The following corkscrews appeared on numerous best corkscrew lists:

1. Pulltap’s double-hinged Waiter’s Corkscrew

It’s top-rated by both Food & Wine and Business Insider. Depending on the model, the cost ranges from about $8-26.

Pros:

  • The double-hinged fulcrum for extra leverage
  • Well-made
  • Easily portable

Cons:

  • Only the knife is stainless steel
  • Counterfeits posing as Pulltap – be aware

2. The Oster Cordless Electric Wine Opener

This wine opener made it on several lists. This is an easy-to-use, battery-operated wine opener and friendly on the wallet at a cost of approximately $13.50.

Pros:

  • Attractive
  • Simplistic
  • Holds a charge well

Cons:

  • Some users reported trouble after a few months of use.

3. Hi, Coup Professional Waiter’s Corkscrew

It’ss a great value at a cost of approximately $10.50.

Pros:

  • Durable stainless steel construction
  • 3-in-1 multi-function waiter’s key
  • The double-hinged fulcrum for smoother pulling

Cons:

  • Some users reported problems with the pin holding the corkscrew
  • Foil cutter cuts at an awkward angle
  • Dull blade

4. HQY Best Wine Opener Corkscrew

This corkscrew opener can easily remove stubborn corks and comes with a replaceable corkscrew spiral at a cost of about $20.

Pros:

  • Usable with synthetic corks
  • Smooth mechanism

Cons:

  • Fragile
  • Quality declined over time

5. Laguiole en Aubrac Olivewood Waiter’s Corkscrew

This corkscrew is handmade by a single craftsman in France and comes at a cost of about $160.

Pros:

  • High performance, stainless steel hardware
  • Heirloom quality work of art
  • Olivewood handle

Cons:

  • Expensive
  • Hinges a little stiff at first use

Different Types of Wine Glasses

Most wine drinkers have between one and three sets of wine glasses – one for reds, one for whites, and one for sparklings. In fact, it would surprise most people to know that there are actually at least 14 different types of wine glasses! You may think it unnecessary to own 14 different sets of wine glasses, and for the casual consumer, that would be true. A true oenophile, however, would argue that each set is necessary.

The difference between each set of wine glasses has to do with the size of the bowl (the actual glass) and the release of ethanol vapours. The ethanol vapours carry the wine’s aromatic compounds that produce the flavours of wine. A 2015 Japanese study used a special camera to study how the different shapes of glasses affect the ethanol vapours. Stemmed or stemless has no consequence – it’s all about the shape of the bowl.

Wine Tip #1: Stop filling your wine glass to the top – you need the space for the aromas to collect and enhance your wine drinking experience.

The following are the different types of wine glasses and which wines they work best with. The names are somewhat self-explanatory, but you may be surprised.

Red wine glasses are used to reduce tannins and provide a smooth-tasting wine. Different types of red wine glasses:

  1. Cabernet – tall with a wide bowl and narrow mouth to allow the wine to breathe and capture the aroma. Do not fill the bowl with wine past the widest part.
  2. Burgundy – a wider bowl accommodates more delicate wine aromas.
  3. Bordeaux – tallest red with a small bowl, perfect for full-bodied wines such as Cabernet, Merlot, and young wines.
  4. Zinfandel – shorter than Bordeaux with a larger rim allows you to experience the full flavour and aroma of your wine. Look for a thin rim.
  5. Pinot Noir – the widest bowl of any wine glass to provide the wine as much contact with air as possible to improve the aroma and flavour. The rim should be turned out from the bowl to direct the flavour and aroma to your nose and mouth.

White wine glasses are used to preserve floral aromas and maintain cooler temperatures. Different types of white wine glasses:

  1. Chardonnay – similar in shape to the Pinot Noir glass, but smaller. Perfect for young, white wines.
  2. Viognier – smaller bowl and slightly more open rim so the wine does not have a lot of contact with oxygen which will destroy the aromatic notes, such as peach, pear, and violets.
  3. Sweet Wine – smaller overall with a smaller rim. The shape ensures that the sweetness of the wine is not overwhelming. Sweet wines generally have a higher alcohol content and the smaller size ensures you will not over-indulge. Typically used for Port, Sherry, and Moscato.
  4. Vintage – visually appealing, with a wide bowl and rim which allows the wine to have a lot of contact with oxygen. Depending on the wine, this can adversely affect the flavour and aroma.

Rosé wine glasses:

Rosé – long-stemmed to allow the wine to remain at a cool temperature and not be warmed by your hand. Use a flared-lip for a young Rosé and a short-tapered lip for a more mature Rosé. You can use the same glass for either a Red or White Rosé.

Sparkling wine glasses, also known as flutes:

Sparkling – narrower and perfectly upright, the shape helps the wine retain its carbonation. Avoid stemless flutes as the heat from your hand will warm the wine and cause it to lose carbonation.

Other wine glasses:

  1. Balloon – long-stemmed, versatile glasses for reds that need plenty of oxygen and whites such as Chardonnay.
  2. Stemless – novelty glasses that, while popular, you need to be aware of the heat from your hand warming up the wine and dissipating the flavour and aroma.
  3. Aerating – if having a separate aerator is just too much, there is an aerator built right into this glass.

What are the Best Wine Glasses?

As always, when searching for the best wine glasses, make sure they fit your budget and your lifestyle. If you are a serial glass-breaker than you will not want to spend a great deal of money on wine glasses. If you enjoy hand-washing glassware and have a safe, storage area than go ahead and invest in a nice set – or 14 – of crystal glasses.

Overall, the Riedel brand is really good across the board. It is also dishwasher-safe. Bormioli is a nice, mid-range brand but they are delicate. Schott Zwiesel produces luxurious crystal glasses at an affordable price. The best wine glass – if you can only own one set – is the Libbey Signature Kentwood Estate All-Purpose wine glasses. A set of 4 is only $37 and, if you don’t need a variety-specific glass, it is a great choice for both reds, whites, and rosés (though I would still have a separate set of champagne flutes on hand).

Why Do I Need A Wine Refrigerator?

You have a refrigerator for your milk, cheese, and perishable food – why do you need a wine refrigerator? Wine refrigerators are designed specifically to not only preserve but also to age your wine to bring out the best flavours and aromas.

There are many features and options to consider when deciding to purchase a wine refrigerator, or wine cooler:

  • Storage capacity
  • Single- or dual-zone capabilities
  • Range of temperatures available
  • Built-in vs. stand-alone
  • Auto-defrosting
  • Humidity control
  • Locks

A single-zone wine cooler can be used for red and white wines. It is recommended that you store your wines at a temperature of 54 degrees Fahrenheit. A dual-zone cooler should be set at 45-50 degrees Fahrenheit for white wines and 50-65 degrees for red wines. White wines can be stored up to three years and red wines can be stored for up to ten years.

Wine Tip #2: Dual-zone wine refrigerators are great for storing both white and red wines.

What are the Best Wine Racks?

A wine rack can be either a stand-alone or permanent fixture that provides an organized method to store wine bottles. Wine bottles must be stored on their sides with a slight incline so that the corks can stay moistened by the wine inside. The size, shape, configuration, and capacity of wine racks can vary greatly – as long as they are able to securely store wine.

The best wine rack will vary based on your requirements. Do you have a lot of storage space? An extensive wine collection? Cabinet configuration for a built-in? You also need to consider which materials will best blend with your current décor – wood, plastic, metal, stainless steel, or wrought iron.

Wine Tip #3: Always store wine with corks on its side because the cork expands to protect the wine from oxygen. If the cork dries out, the wine will oxidize and won’t taste as fresh.

The following are the best stand-alone wine racks of varying capacities:

What are the Best Wine Chillers or Wine Sleeves?

A wine chiller is synonymous with a wine sleeve and also sometimes a wine cooler – not to be confused with the wine cooler that is comparable to a wine refrigerator. Confused yet? No need. Most wine chillers use freezer inserts, typically gel, to keep wine chilled. Some wine chillers, however, are placed in the refrigerator or freezer and then used to maintain a chilled bottle of wine.

The wine chillers are made from various materials, such as marble, stainless steel, metal, plastic/acrylic, glass, or fabric. There are even some wine chillers that are placed directly into a wine bottle to chill it rapidly. Following are some of the best wine chillers, sleeves, coolers, and inserts:

What are the Best Wine Thermometers?

A wine thermometer is a device used to ensure that the temperature of your wine is ideal for consumption. There are usually built with electronic displays to make reading the temperature easier and more accurate. Perfect wine temperatures guarantee that you enjoy the full flavours and aromas that the winemaker had planned. Following are some of the best wine thermometers:

What are the Best Wine Stoppers?

Not finishing an open bottle of wine is a foreign concept to me, however, I suppose there might come a day when I will need to utilize one. A wine stopper is used to close leftover wine in bottles before refrigerating or storing them. It can be difficult to re-insert the original cork back into the bottle. Wine stoppers come in a variety of shapes and sizes, however, be aware that decorative wine stoppers are not as adept at keeping air out of the bottle, which could cause the wine to oxidize.

Wine Tip #4: Decorative wine stoppers are only good for preserving leftover wine for up to two days.

What is the Best Wine Decanter?

A wine decanter is a container that holds the decanted (poured out) wine. Decanters have various shapes and designs, though they are typically made from glass or crystal. Decanters usually hold one standard bottle of wine (750 ml) and can be a beautiful addition to any serving table. Depending on what you are looking for in a decanter, whether it’s a beautiful decoration or a practical daily tool, you will be able to find a decanter within your budget.

Wine Tip #5: Wines older than 15 years should only be decanted about 30 minutes before drinking. Younger, more robust wines can be decanted an hour or more before drinking.

What is a Wine Aerator?

A wine aerator helps filter air into red wine. Wine can self-aerate if decanted for an hour or more, however, at times you may want to aerate it more quickly. An aerator allows the wine drinker to experience the full flavour and aroma of the wine. Basically, when you aerate the wine, you are exposing it to air and allowing it to breathe which reduces the acidity of the wine.

What is a Wine Pump?

A wine pump is used to keep your wine fresher than if you replaced the cork. Wine pumps extract air from an opened bottle of wine, which slows down the oxidation process and reduces both the wine’s flavour and aroma. When a bottle lies flat, the surface area of an open wine bottle is greater and oxidation happens more quickly. Removing as much air from the bottle as possible slows oxidation and lets it last from seven to fourteen days.

There are a variety of types of wine preservation/pump systems. Vacuum systems remove all oxygen from the wine bottle to prevent oxidation. Some systems come with argon gas capsules to further extend the shelf life of your wine. There is also a food-grade argon spray that you can spray directly into your wine bottle. This creates a top layer that blocks any air from touching the wine.

What are the Best Wine Aroma Kits?

You may struggle to understand and differentiate all the different aromas and flavours that people usually use to describe wine. Perhaps you have tasted wine with friends and you each have described the notes or aromas differently. This could happen due to differences in:

      1. Flavour sensitivities
      2. The procedure used to taste the wine
      3. Descriptive word usage

The best way to ensure that you are both tasting and smelling the same notes and flavours is to have some aroma references on hand. This is why it is a good idea to have your own wine aroma kit. There are three types of wine aromas:

      1. Primary aromas are imparted by the actual grapes.
      2. Secondary aromas become present due to the winemaking process,
      3. Tertiary aromas develop as a bottle of wine ages.

You can make your own wine aroma kit or buy one to help you on your wine journey. Following are a few of the best wine aroma kits available:

What Is the Best Wine Carrier?

At some point or another, you will decide you want to bring your own bottle of wine to parties or festivities with friends and family. You don’t want to transport your bottle in a plastic bag, but what other methods can you use to safely transport your delicious wine? There are numerous items available to help you travel and keep your wine bottle intact – everything from wine carriers to totes and picnic sets.

First, you want to be sure that the wine carrier is insulated and padded. Next, you want to ensure it has a durable carrying strap or handles and secure closure. Finally, you have to determine how many bottles of wine you may want to transport. Wine carriers are available to carry from one to four (or more!) bottles of wine

What are the Best Label Savers?

After thoroughly enjoying a bottle of wine, especially if it is a new brand or style I haven’t tried before, I like to save the label so I will remember the bottle. A wine label saver quickly removes most wine labels by splitting and separating the printed surface from the adhesive back. You can then place the label in your wine journey, along with tasting notes, and memories of the occasion.

Frequently Asked Questions: 

    How do you clean a wine aerator?

    To clean properly a wine aerator, boil water and add some soap. Soak the wine aerator in the hot water, rinse and dry very well to avoid any bacteria in the water.

    How do you keep the wine fresh?

    If you open a bottle of wine and haven’t finished the content yet, you can keep it away from the sunlight, in a fresh room temperature place to finish it the next days or even keeping it in the fridge to slow down the oxidation process.

    How long can you keep the wine in a wine fridge?

    You can keep your wine in the refrigerator for up to 5 days after opening. This applies as well for wine fridges.

    Conclusion

    I hope you have learned a lot about wine gear, from the essentials to the whimsical add-ons that make wine consumption fun. There are probably a lot more gadgets and gear that I have missed, so I look forward to reading your comments and updating this article as needed. If you have a wine drinker in your life, you can’t go wrong with any of the above wine accessories and wine gear. Who knows? You could become an expert on wine gear and outfit your wine cellar – or wine storage area – like a professional. To your health!
