Wineware’s Top 5 ideal Wine Gifts
1 – Wine Decanter
There’s nothing wrong in pouring wine straight from the bottle into the glass, but are you really getting the most from the Wine and enjoying it to its fullest potential? If you ‘decant’ wine, you’re allowing the wine to breathe and aerate, which in turn releases the aromas and flavours that have been ’trapped’ and enclosed within the bottle. We supply a whole host of different Wine decanters from known glass manufactures and brands, the choice is nearly endless! The varied choice is due to a number of factors, the design and shape, the capacity or volume the decanter can hold and the manufacturing process, whether it’s made by hand or by machine.
Price range: £20.00 to £300.00+

2 – Wine Glasses
Choosing and drinking from the correct wine glass could be the difference in really enjoying a wine to not being impressed at all! Using the correct glassware, you’d be surprised how the shape and size of the glass will improve the overall taste and flavour of a wine. Our vast range of different glassware covers red and white wine in general, but certain glass manufactures have gone that step further and categorised glasses to specific grapes or wine regions. For example, the popular Riedel Vinum range has 6 different glasses for red wine, all of which have been designed to work perfectly with certain grapes of wine regions, Bordeaux, Burgundy etc. Likewise with our Wine Decanters, glassware can range in price due to quality of the glass and how it’s been made and the amount of glasses within the set.
Price range: £3.50 to £30.00+ (per glass)

4 – Modularack Wooden Wine Rack
Storing wine in the correct conditions and surroundings is vital to enjoying the wine, it can be as important as the glass you’re drinking out. It’s important that the cork is kept wet before it’s been opened, otherwise if it dries out, it could start to crumble and in turn ‘cork’ the wine making it un-drinkable. The Modularack wine rack system is great as when wine is stored, the bottle is tilted slightly towards the neck, keeping the vital wet at all times. Not only that, it’s visually excellent, easy to assemble (no tools or screws required) and you don’t have to hide your collection in the cupboard, you can show it off! They’re available in a variety of different bottle capacities and are supplied either in natural pine or a dark stain. They really great thing about the Modularack system, is that it can grow at the same speed as your wine collection as you’re able to add more layers on top of your existing wine rack!
