Nordic Rocks
For those of you in the UK, or traveling there you might also be interested in so-called Nordic Rocks. Originally released in sets of ten, these "pollution free" stones are similar to Whisky Stones, but seem to be even more expensive. At $25 for five stones I'd be searching the shelves for any remaining ten packs that might be floating around the marketplace!

    How about frozen seedless grapes? Eat them when you finish the wine.

    I have the whiskey stones and they didn't work great getting my whites to the temperature I like but I found "wine drops" and they worked great.

    We just tried frozen grapes...the grapes do thaw, but kept the wine cool a bit longer.

    There are dozens of clear and colored plastic or composite ice cubes available on the market. Other then the silly colors 9and hey are still silly colors in my ice tea or iced coffee) they work well. The colors allow them to be rechilled in my cube bin in the fridge and allow me to find them to add to my glass or thermos.

  • Make sure you're not using your good Riedel with all of these rocks! They are strong, but will definitely scratch.

    Do frozen rocks chip your teeth? I find the idea of the wine drops or corkcicle or even a (gasp) ice bucket more appealing than damaged wine glasses and potentially teeth.

  • I vote for the frozen grapes. The ones in AZ right now are flavorless flame reds, and sour greens @ ~$1.49. We have to cool the reds as well out here in the desert!

    These all sound like very charming ways to cool wine but I do it the old fashion way...in my wine chiller on my private Gulfstream G650 or when at home I have the staff ordered to chill it for me whether I be in Tuscany, Nice or vacationing in the Maldives. Call me old fashion I guess....
