The Wine Gadgets You Need in Your Life Right Now

Oct 17

Wine Barrels in Old Cellar in Mission Viejo, CA

Our culture is gadget crazy these days; like any other industry, the wine industry has a plethora of gadgets for your every need. You don’t need all of them though, so I’ve culled through and listed the ones worth buying right now:

The Kuvée

Kuvee - Smart Wine Bottle Device

The Kuvée is a connected, “smart” wine bottle. I mean, we have smart phones so why not smart wine bottles?? It’s been called the smartest wine bottle in the world and is supposed to keep your wine fresh for up to 30 days. This is definitely cutting edge technology!

You need to order special wine to fit the Kuvée, but they have a pretty good selection of wine, and amazingly the Kuvée will also provide you wine tips and recommendations. You can also order more wine directly from the bottle, since it actually has wifi.

It’s a bit hard to visualize, but if you visit their website you can watch a demo of how it works. Oh, and California is one of only two states where it’s currently available for purchase!

It’s reasonably priced at the moment; you get your Kuvée Smart Bottle and a four wine starter pack for $199, normally a $349 value.

Kim Crawford Wine Gems

These wine gems are basically a stylish reimagining of the “whiskey stone”, but for wine. They look like marbles, but are real, beautiful fluorite stone; keep them in your freezer and pull them out when you forget to chill that bottle of white. These limited-edition wine gems are designed your wine chilled for up to an hour without diluting the flavors. Whatever you do, don’t put ice cubes in your wine!

A package contains six beautiful stones for $76.

Coravin

Coravin Wine Saver System Gadget

The Coravin system is the ultimate wine saver! Their proprietary technology uses a thin wall needle to allow you to pour a glass of wine while leaving the cork in place. Once the needle is withdrawn, the cork naturally reforms a perfectly airtight seal. This protects your wine from oxidation and essentially is like you never even opened the bottle, meaning you can enjoy that bottle for months to come (not that a bottle would ever last that long!) Bye bye corkscrew!

There are several models to choose from, ranging in price from $199.95 to $349.95.

Corkcicle Canteen

This one is not cutting edge technology; in fact, it’s basically a thermos. However, it made my list because it can keep your wine at the perfect temperature for up to 25 hours, according to the company. Which means that it’s perfect for the beach and tailgating! The Corkcicle Canteen is modern, cool looking, and comes in a lot of great colors.

The 25oz size should fit a standard bottle of wine and costs only $32.95.

DaCor Discovery WineStation

DaCor Discovery WineStation Automated Wine Dispensing & Preservation System

Okay, this one may not be in everyone’s budget, but it’s awesome. The Discovery WineStation is the first automated, temperature controlled, four-bottle wine dispensing and preservation system for the home.

Whether you just want a taste, a half glass, or a full glass – you choose and the WineStation dispenses. Plus, the WineStation keeps your wines fresh for up to 60 days without any loss of flavor!

The Discovery WineStation costs about $5,500.

Hope you enjoyed the list and found a gadget you can’t live without!
