Wine Bottle Holder

The CFW crew loves magic. Every type of magic; from stories of summoning demons to David Blaine chewing quarters. This bottle holder is magic; in the British vernacular way, and the defying physics way.

Nickel plated iron chain welded and curved upwards to hold the bottle. Uses the principle of balance to create a magical floating illusion.

Again people, perfect gift. Check it out at Canaan.

Wine Glass Necklace

draft_3382_big.gifWe here at CFW are usually very complimentary and supportive. I'm afraid this product tests us. A neck strap for your wine glass. I firmly believe in geeking it up sometimes, but this goes to far. It keeps your hands free and your glass near which is wonderful, but are there no surfaces in the land where this was invented? It also begs the question, what are you doing with your hands that is so important, and shouldn't your glass be empty by that point?

Greatest Holiday Wine Gadget

winsceptrestand.jpgWhen you have people over for the holidays, you set everything up perfectly; fireplace is burping merrily, Bing Crosby is crooning, and the wine is chilled. However, you forgot to open the flu, one of your guests mentions that Bing was a little heavy handed with the discipline and the guests are late, so your wine gets warm. We can't do much about the first two, but this product makes warm wine a thing of the past. The Wine Scepter Cooling System keeps your whites cool and crisp from the hugs hello, to the last glass with desert. It stainless steel and comes with an elegant stand. This gadget is way cool and it looks great! This is the perfect gift for the wine lover in your gang.

Acrylic Wine Rack

acrywineracj.gifWhen I was in college, I drilled dozens of holes in PVC pipe, split the pipes in half length-ways and screwed them to the wall. I then put the neck of liquor bottles in the holes. I have moved on from that stage and now store wine bottles in similar racks that someone else has made. The people at Gus Design Group have developed a space saving, sleek wine rack. Its aluminum and acrylic design are modern and stable. You never have to worry about walking into the see-through material, because you can simply keep it stocked. It's the perfect holiday gift.

Digital Wine Cooler and Warmer

Your Reislings should be chilled and your port should be warm. With the Twin Digital Wine Cooler, you can have just that. This amazing piece of technology will make your wine experience a memorable one.

The beauty of this product is that it chills TWO wine bottles at once. Usually, once I polish off a bottle by myself the temperature, not to mention the taste, of the second bottle makes little difference to me. I suppose some people drink with others so having the capability to exactly control the temperature of two bottles of wine at a time, using neither water nor ice, is a great convenience. For those who can sniff and taste the difference a few degrees change in temperature makes in wine this is the feather in their cap.

Bring the wine to Nanna's house in Amerileather's classy, single bottle wine tote. This handmade beauty is bound to impress.
It includes:

* Top grain cowhide leather

Botas-Wine Carrier

botasexp.jpegThere is no justification for it. We are not celebrating anything in particular. However, the CFW folks and friends are going camping. A week from today, we head north to greener and mellower pastures. Among the essentials I have packed already are my headlamp, toilet paper and my Botas. Loving wine and loving camping are not mutually exclusive. In fact they go pair perfectly; like lamb and Pinot Noir.
If you love wine, but haven’t heard of Botas, you need one. Botas are wineskins that are an ancient way to transport wine and are still used today all over Spain. Shepherds and travelers used Botas in bygone days, but today you’re likely to see them worn at festivals, bullfights, soccer matches and the occasional camping trip. Traditional, high quality botas are made in small artisan workshops from cured, hand-sewn skins. The interior is coated with pine pitch for waterproofing. They are normally cut in a teardrop or kidney shape. The end has a small hole to squeeze the wine through and a screw-on top attached to a short cord, so it is not lost during merrymaking! Botas also come with a longer cord so you can sling them over your shoulder and keep your hands free.
Like anything else, you can spend a lot or a little on your bota. I use mine frequently, so I went high end, but you can find one on through this link for under $10. For those who need to have wine when they’re mobile, try the second link. Armed with your bota, you can enjoy a cool Riesling while hiking, or sip a peppery Malbec with duck roasted over the campfire.
