What is a wine set and what does it include?
Wine sets are gift and professional, and depending on for whom they are intended, their composition varies. But we are here to talk about accessories for wine just as a beautiful and stylish gift version. After all, an ordinary person, even a connoisseur and gourmet, does not have anything to do with tastevan (a tasting bowl), a decanter with a special funnel and a strainer, and an aerator for pumping oxygen into the young wine. Just like a professional sommelier, it is not necessary that these devices be designed in the same design and be decorated with Swarovski crystals.
So, what is a gift wine set and what is it for? Just imagine: guests gathered at a festive table, you will present a bottle of expensive wine and ... half an hour fiddle with its opening, using a cheap aluminum corkscrew, a fork, knives. After all, high-quality seasoned drinks like to "play a trick" on us sometimes: a cork that has spent several years in the neck, has a habit of getting stuck there thoroughly. Then as a corkscrew professional will remove it in a minute. Moreover, he will make the uncorking process very effective. Therefore, a corkscrew made of high quality chrome steel is included in all the wine sets without exception.
What other accessories are included in the classic wine set? First, a special box (in the form of a wooden chest, safe, case) with grooves for each object and special rings for bottles. After all, it is very convenient: going to a picnic, protect the bottle so it does not break, in such a trunk, and at the same time grab everything you need to easily uncork it.
The composition of the box must include a special knife for cutting foil from the neck and a napkin with a ring that is worn on the bottle so that the drops of wine do not roll off of it and dirty the tablecloth.
This is the minimum of which the wine set should consist. Further filling of the box depends only on your desire and purchase opportunity. To keep the bouquet of the drink until next time (if the bottle was left undone), a universal cork with a beautiful elegant knob is very useful. Some sets are equipped with special saucers, on which this plug is convenient to put.
Very often, the wine set also contains a useful thing, like a drop catcher. This is such an inner funnel, which is inserted into the neck of the bottle. With its help, valuable moisture will fall exactly in the glass, and not on a tablecloth or clothes. Equally useful accessory is a special cork with vacuum suction. Some wines, when uncorked, can oxidize from the encounter with the air, causing their taste and smell to change. To prevent this from happening, after filling the glasses, the air from the bottle should be removed. Without a thermometer and an alcohol meter, an ordinary user can do without, which can not be said about the cooling jacket for a bottle, because every sort of wine requires a certain flow temperature.
Wine set is a stylish gift that will suit both a woman and a man. They will emphasize both your taste and respect for the recipient of the gift, hinting that you know him or her as a connoisseur of wine. Gift options are beautifully packed in special trunks, are designed in a single design and are made of high-quality metal. Sometimes these boxes are made of thermal insulation materials and serve as coolers.
