  • Gift ideas for wine lovers

    With Christmas coming up, here are a few gift ideas for wine lovers.

    Zalto glasses

    Zalto glasses

    Zalto glasses are some of the most sought-after glasses by wine lovers, probably even more so than the far more expensive Riedel Sommeliers Series. These glasses are designed to offer the perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics. Zalto glasses are hand-blown in the northern part of Lower Austria in a manner that echoes the delicate virtuosity of the great Venetian glass artists of the Renaissance. This results in extremely thin, light and delicate glasses which are stunning to enjoy a good bottle of wine. As they are produced without the addition of any lead oxide, they are resistant against clouding and may be washed in a dishwasher. £30.00 per glass.

    Coravin

    Coravin is a system which allows you to access, pour and enjoy your favourite wines by the glass whenever you like, without even pulling the cork. Instead of opening the bottle, you insert a hollow needle into the cork and pour a glass of wine without any oxygen getting into the bottle as the system uses pressurized argon gas. Unlike other wine preservation systems (vacuum pump, inert gas canister) – which preserve the wine for a few days – Coravin allows you to enjoy a great glass of wine and then store the bottle back in your cellar for a few more years. £269.00
