8 Practical wine accessories that will make you love wine even more
It may have taken you a few years for you to love it, but there’s a reason it’s one of the most consumed drinks in the world. There’s no better way to enjoy your favorites (and explore more) than with the right accessories.
- How many grapes does it take for a bottle of wine? Depending on the flavor, you’d need about 600 to 800 grapes. Or, 10 clusters of grapes.
- Does age make wine better? Although wine doesn’t spoil, five years of aging is more than sufficient for most wines.
- What’s the best wine glass? This totally depends on your wine choice, style, and needs. But, we think the Chambong is pretty fun.
Cabernet? Chardonnay? Merlot? If you’re the type to swirl your glass before consuming (even if you don’t know what it’s for), you might be a bit of a fan of wine. We don’t blame you! With so many wine types, wine and food pairings are virtually endless.
We scoured our category for wine enthusiasts to provide you with a list of truly practical accessories to help you enjoy the grapes even more.
The Oak Bottle Wine Age Accelerator
Offering beautiful and extravagant aromas and flavors to any bottle, this nifty system helps age your wine in a great way. Infused with flavor by experts, the Oak Wine Bottle can improve the taste of any wine.
Why we love it: It’s an easy way to make that cheap bottle taste like a million bucks (or at least $15).
Aervana Select Universal Wine Aerator
There are so many benefits to aerating wine: as it oxidizes, you can experience new depths of flavor. Sitting on top of your bottle, the Aervana speeds up this process but gives you adjustable aeration time for the perfect flavor.
Why we love it: Because it attaches to the bottle, you get aerated wine on tap.
Apèro N20 Powered Wine Opener
There’s opening a wine bottle and then there’s opening a wine bottle. The Apèro does the latter. Using nitrous oxide, the Apéro N20 slides out the cork without leaving residue (and requiring no elbow grease).
Why we love it: It comes with two cartridges to service up to 100 bottles!
Vinglacé Portable Wine Chiller
Now you can always have your wine at the perfect temperature even on the go with Vinglacé. The system surrounds the bottle to keep the optimal temperature on all sides. Perfect for whites and rosé, the vacuum insulated structure retains the temperature for hours.

Why we love it: It can hold an entire bottle of wine at once.
PortoVino Wine Dispensing Purse
Combining fashion and wine, this beautiful purse actually conceals a bag of wine inside. Complete with a discrete spout, you can pour yourself a glass (or a few) without anyone knowing the source. Of course, you wouldn’t bring this to places where alcohol is banned (wink).
Why we love it: Unlike other on the go options, this bag is stunningly stylish.
Eparé Pocket Wine Aerator
