With the advent of the screw top, wine has become an open and pour affair. Goodbye to the corkscrew or even wine glasses, for that matter. We here at WineNight applaud this new bottling technique, as we are all for getting a tasty red or white wine, or a rosé for that matter, into our mouths as quickly as possible. That being said, when it comes to drinking quality wine, and especially if you’re hosting your own WineNight tasting, there are a few wine accessories we insist you have on hand to ensure a smooth night of wine-ing.
Generally, most of our favorite things in life are $25 or under: one pound of freshly sliced proscuitto, Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumors” album, sunsets on the beach, park picnics, “Hamilton” lottery tickets. It so happens, this is also about the price (or even less) of some of our favorite wine accessories.
All of the below wine items are ideal to have on hand if you’re hosting a WineNight, or even if you’re just throwing your own casual wine tasting for friends. Not only that, each will save you a lot of time and hassle with prep, use and storage.
