Set of four champagne saucers
Get those beaded bubbles winking at the brim with this set of four champagne saucers. Made from handmade blown glass, their lustrous shine will make Babycham perry taste like Dom Perignon.
Venerate the vine with a friend during this food-pairing lunch. By the time you leave, you’ll have eaten a four-course meal, understand how the major grape varieties harmonise with food, and be looking for someone to drive you home.
Pistachios; prawns; even coconuts – the best foods require you put in work before getting that delicious payoff. Now you can bring that same level of commitment to the grape with this devious puzzle set from Debenhams. Trust us – it will taste all the sweeter after you’ve spent three hours working at it with a hacksaw.
Too many bottles of wine, and not enough hours in the day? Why breathe when you can hyperventilate? This gadget will swirl your Shiraz and pummel your Pinotage as it leaves the bottle, rendering those young wines (which you should really have cellared) immediately drinkable.
Keep your festive fizz froid with this freestanding fridge. It will keep 33 bottles cool at any one time – perfect for ensuring your wine remains as cool and effervescent as your party guests.
Keep your Pinot perfect and your Fleurie flawless with this digital thermometer – simply slip it around the bottle. Just don’t confuse it with your wristwatch, or you’ll be late for the train and drinking your Shiraz at a completely unacceptable temperature.
The ultimate set of Bacchanalian gadgetry. Give this wine toolkit to a loved one and ensure every bottle is opened with the pomp and efficiency it deserves. Even comes replete with “I can’t possibly lose this” carry-case, so you need never push the cork inside the bottle ever again.
If you’re looking for the ultimate Christmas port, it doesn’t get much better than this Graham’s 1966 vintage – and it’s perfect for drinking right now. Sip it while you’re decorating the tree and reflect on a time when our isles were home to the best football team in the world.
This elegant 24% lead crystal wine decanter is hand-cut and finished in Italy. When you order your wine this Noel, a decanter like this will show off those festive ruby hues to their utmost. At only £55, it’s not just the wine that will breathe easy.
As you’re stocking up for the festive season, don’t forget dessert wines. This selection from Laithwaites includes Sauternes, Semillon and a delicious Canadian ice wine, made from frozen grapes. Freezing the grapes locks the water away from the initial must, resulting in a deliciously sweet and acidic wine perfect for drinking with your Christmas pudding.
