The Art of Serving Cold Wine

3 ways to keep it cool

Insulated Containers

Wine Cooler Sleeves

Wine Buckets

Insulated Containers

Wine Coolers or Wine Chillers are made of insulated material.

Their shape fits easily the bottle.

Their function is to keep the wine chilled until the bottle is finished.

They come in different materials: from stainless steel to double-walled glass, plastic and neoprene.

Wine Cooler Sleeves

Wine Cooler Sleeves are iceless wine chillers.

They keep wine cold but can also chill down room-temperature wines.

Wine Cooler Sleeves become handy at pool parties, pic nic, on the beach or in a boat where a ice bucket might tip over.

Wine Buckets

Bucket + Ice + Water.

Without water you don't get teh result you wish.

Fill the bucket with ice first.

Then fill it halfway up with water.

So drop in the wine bottle.

Now you're chilling!

By adding water, you create a icy bath and expand the contact surface.

Just ice cubes, a lot of air in between and you cannot push the bottle all the way down, without water. This will not work.

Geek trick: salt. Add a cup of salt per gallon of water and dump the ice on the top.

The salted water has a lower freezing temperature.

The same happens if you add sugar.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
