1) Rabbit Wine Opener
There are all kinds of wine openers out there. The one I like the absolute best is the Rabbit Wine Opener. It’s a heavy-duty opener, but it’s fantastic. Super easy to use and if you are opening several bottles for a gathering or tasting it’s really easy to get the bottles opened quickly. Find out more in this post: Tips and Tools for Opening Wine.
This Rabbit Corkscrew Kit includes quite a few helpful tools, like a foil cutter, wine pourer/stopper, champagne/wine stopper, wax wacker (for wax-dipped bottles). All-in-all a great value for about $50 from Sur la Table.
2) Riedel Stemless Wine Glasses
I love our stemless Riedel wine glasses. Don’t get me wrong. Stemmed wine glasses are the ultimate, but we have broken so many of them that we’ve resorted to the stemless and they work perfectly. We even have Riedel stemless champagne flutes that have an engraved circle in the bottom center of the glass so that the bubbles stream up from that point.
We have 2 types of white wine glass shapes. One type for light-bodied wine like Sauvignon Blanc. Another shape for full-bodied wine like Chardonnay.
We also have 2 types of red wine glass shapes. One shape for full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon. A second shape for light-bodied reds like Pinot Noir.
These stemless glasses in the different shapes are fantastic and they are designed to bring out the best in each type of wine, but they aren’t totally necessary.
Here are 2 simple wine glass options.
