Fortunately, we take the work out of your search by providing a catalog of must-have wine accessories all designed to enhance your overall experience of enjoying a glass of wine. From the smallest corkscrew to the largest bottle rack, our selection of accessories are the key to optimal function and convenience.
5 Must-Have Wine Accessories
A stylish set of stemless wine glasses may be sufficient for the casual wine drinker, but for an avid connoisseur, the nuances of making, serving and storing wine are an essential part of savoring every sip. That is why we aim to supply you with all the tools and accessories that not only enhance your experience, but also allow you to discover something new about your favorite bottle of wine.
1. Wine Racks
One of the most popular wine accessories, a rack to store your wine bottle collection is both functional and decorative. There are many different types of wine racks available, including some that can be mounted to a wall, hung from a ceiling or simply sit on your countertop. To ensure it matches your decor, you even have a wide selection of materials and finishes to choose from, with metal racks and wooden racks being the most popular.
The process of decanting wine is a process that involves the transfer of wine from a bottle to a clear, wide-bodied vessel. Used for hundreds of years, the decanting process allows your wine to breathe, which helps its true aroma and flavor profile to blossom. Decanting also allows the sediment to settle, especially with bottles that have been aged for many years. Allowing the sediment to settle will not only help soften the wine, but also make it less bitter or harsh. A wine decanter is one of the best wine accessories you can own.
3. Wine Aerators
Aerating wine is a quick and easy way to reduce the amount of sulfites, soften its tannins and enhance the overall bouquet of the wine. Much like wine decanting, introducing oxygen to your wine is the key to unlocking its true flavor and aromatics. Because of this, a wine aerator is another must-have accessory for any wine enthusiast.
4. Corkscrews & Wine Openers
Another must-have accessory is a corkscrew or wine opener. Our selection of wine openers will simplify the process of opening a wine bottle. Whether you are looking for an automatic opener or a simple corkscrew, we have a large selection of wine openers to choose from.
5. Wine Chillers
Wine chillers are great at quickly chilling that room-temperature bottle of wine you just bought at the store. They also work great at keeping that crisp white Pinot at the precise temperature you want, as opposed to a bucket that can certainly keep it cold, but gives you little control of the temperature.
How Do You Enjoy Your Wine?
Whether you're trying to relax with a glass of wine or you're throwing a party at your home, our wide selection of wine accessories will allow you to truly enjoy your wine at a level you've never experienced. Start asking yourself what kind of accessories would make your experience more satisfying. Chances are, we probably have just the item you need at a price that is well worth the initial investment.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
