For today’s Sloshed Saturday I thought we would get into what I consider the necessary accoutrement for the wine lover in your life. I’m so lucky in that my fiance knows that I really enjoy a nice glass of white wine from time to time, and he wanted to make it as easy for me to keep the flavor as possible. We all know that wine loses it’s flavor after it’s opened if it isn’t stored properly, but so many of us don’t have the proper supplies in order to keep it tasting great for more than just a day or so. I know I’ve always been guilty of just sticking the cork back in and drinking it anyway. Plus how many times have we lost the cork down in it ladies? Sooo many!
For my birthday, he gave me the Oster Electric Wine Opener, and you can click that link without worrying about it being an affiliate link. I am not an amazon affiliate. All opinions here are my own. These presents were provided for me out of love and tenderness from my other half. I’ll admit that I haven’t had to use the electronic wine bottle opener yet, but I cannot wait. I have fibromyalgia so I’m always glad for anything that makes things easier on my hands. I’m afflicted with the fact I’ll pick something up knowing I’m going to drop it, but I cannot stop myself in time. I think that this will be one of the greatest things ever for helping me with that problem and thus not dropping any wine bottles. No more wine will be harmed in my trying to get the cork out, and I’m happy about that for sure. You’ll appreciate not losing the cork down in their too.
On top of this, he got me the Vacu Vin which is terrific for holding in the flavor. You literally pump it several times in order to get the perfect pop sound and it is sealed vacuum tight. This means longer lasting flavor in every bottle. You want one glass after work? No problem. You seal it up, and you’ll be able to have another full flavor glass the next day. This has made me so happy. I’m not the kind of person who drinks a glass every night even, but I have noticed that the flavor is richer even if I wait a couple of days.
So fellows what I’m saying here is that if your lady loves wine, and you are still looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift…look no further.
