Corkcicle Wine Chiller

Now this is a great wine accessory to keep your wine chilled this summer and all year-round. The Corkcicle Wine Chiller is a tube-shaped insert that you put in the freezer and then put in your wine bottle. It keeps your wine chilled without using an ice bucket, and it corks your wine at the same time.

Just place the Corkcicle in the freezer for at least 90 minutes. Pour a little wine out of the bottle to make room for the Corkcicle, and then position the Corkcicle in place of the bottles cork. In just twelve minutes your wine will be chilled to the perfect drinking temperature.

The Corkcicle Wine Chiller will not dilute your beverage, and it will not make your wine too cold, which can happen when using an ice bucket.

It’s great with white wine, and you can use it for red wine too. It can help bring your room temperature reds down to a more palatable temperature.

 

Don’t worry beer drinkers, they thought of you too. The one for beer drinkers is called the Cockcicle Chillsner Beer Chiller.

No matter which beverage you prefer, you have to have a Corkcicle. It’s as handy as a corkscrew. It’s a great way to keep your beverages chilled in a more compact and easier way.  It’s great for any gathering where you serve wine or beer, and it’s perfect to take on the go.

Cheers!

Fizz 56 Sparkling Red Brachetto Review

Have a special occasion coming up? Want something out-of-the-ordinary that’s delicious and irresistible? You may want to try Fizz 56 Sparkling Red Brachetto. It is far from ordinary.

Fizz 56 Sparkling Red Brachetto has a bright red ruby tone, and a very festival look and feel. Fizz 56 sparking red is highly aromatic with an alluring, light taste, and just a hint of soft berry notes in a tantalizing blend of raspberry, strawberry and cherry flavors.

Fizz56 is a sweet Italian red wine made from Brachetto grapes. The Brachetto grape is a naturally effervescent red grape that is native to Italy, and is rarely grown in other parts of the world.

It’s a true Italian wine, and if wine can be glamorous and exciting, Fizz 56 is certainly in line for the honor. It’s charmingly sweet and bubbly, and can be perfectly paired with a romantic evening for two, or a dessert complimentary to any occasion.

Be prepared to be the center of attraction when you pop this cork.

Dom Perignon – You’re Worth It!

Welcome to the New Year! Have you settled into the New Year feeling yet? It’s going to be a great one, and the celebrations are certainly not over yet.

Awards show parties, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, new job, new home – you name it! The celebrations just keep coming, so why not really kick it up a notch this year and celebrate with a very special bottle of bubbly. A superb vintage Champagne; Dom Perignon – You’re Worth it!

Dom Perignon embodies the rich aroma of honey with a hint of vanilla. It’s a tantalizing Champagne with citrus, peach, and ginger, a crisp freshness and an elegant finish.

Striking and aromatic, Dom Perignon is vintage Champagne produced by Moët & Chandon. The name Dom Perignon comes from a Benedictine monk who was a pioneer of Champagne.

Have you ever tasted Dom Perignon? Don’t feel it’s out of your league. You’re worth it, and it’s a great wine present for wine lovers.

There’s a certain prestige that surrounds Dom Perignon Champagne. Yes, it’s on the pricey side and there’s the sense that if you’re serving Dom, you must be doing pretty well. But it is certainly, by far, one of the most recognized names in the world of Champagne, and this Congratulations with Dom Perignon & Godiva Truffles – Wine Collection Gift is a limited edition. Perfect for those moments you want to remember.

 

Dom Perginon is the bottle you save for those super special occasions. You probably would not break out a bottle of Dom to watch TV on a Saturday night. But when the moment is right, and there will be one or two of those moments. Make sure you give yourself a bottle of Dom Perignon this year. You’re worth it.

Happy New Year!
