Wine accessories

Posted by Coleney, Jun 19.

Do you use any wine accessories and do you consider them an important part of your wine consumption traditions?

No - I'm a little rustic in my approach to storing and drinking wine.  Give me a cork puller, a dark, cool wine cellar and the right glass and I'm fine.

Obviously, storage facility/apparatus.  Also, of course, glasses.  Other than that, just a bunch of corkscrews.  I am giving serious thought to investing in one of those high-dollar Durands.  I'm getting tired of dealing with crumbling corks on older wines, and it looks like the Durand may help a lot.

Oh, I just thought of a couple more things.  I have one of those foill cutters.  I don't use it very often.  Something that I do use often is the Vacuvin pump and the assocated rubber stoppers.  I'm not really sure that the vacuvin pumps enough air out of a bottle to really prevent leftover wine from oxidizing, but it is a whole lot easier to pull that rubber stopper off a bottle on day 2 than a used cork that I jammed back in.

So, in all honesty, I do have my share of stuff.
