This blog is all about things that keep you sane; for me wine, copious amounts; red wine keeps me sane. In my next mansion home I would love to have a wine cellar; but for now I would have to put my red wine in the fridge for a few minutes to get it to temperature, but that only works for the first glass. Red wine should not be cold, but it also should not be at room temperature unless you keep your house at 57 degrees.
When I decided to open and OpenSky store I was given the opportunity to test one of their products, and I chose the Ravi Instant Wine Chiller. Its a little gadget that you put in the freezer and then attach to the wine bottle. When you pour the wine it pours slowly through the attachment and instantly gets it to the appropriate temperature. Like so:
I was pleasantly surprised that it works exactly as advertised, and works for the entire bottle. If you don’t finish the bottle in one evening (rare for us) then put the chiller back in the freezer for when you want to drink the rest of it. Now I no longer have to suffer with wine that is a touch too warm, but that has the flavor and notes that it is meant to have.
