Wine accessories make great gifts for any wine lover in Cornelius, NC.
Although technically all you need to drink wine is the bottle of wine, some sort of glass (or drink right from the bottle), and a way to open the wine, you just might find yourself reaching a higher level of enjoyment if you consider a few wine accessories to have on hand. At Cabo Winery, we have both great-tasting wines and the wine accessories that you need to enjoy them to their ultimate potential.
One of the wine accessories to learn about is stemware. If you were to put your favorite wine in three different glasses – a disposable cup, budget stemware, and quality stemware – and then do a taste test of them, you might be surprised to learn that there is a huge difference in the flavor. This isn’t just a trick of the mind. There is scientific support that how your mouth interprets flavor can be affected by such things as the glass rim shape, thinness and how the aromatics are able to waft into your senses.
Another important accessory, particularly in fully enjoying full-bodied red wines, is a decanter. Many people think that a decanter is just a fancy way to serve wine, and while that may be true, it also enhances the flavor of the wine by letting it breathe properly before you drink it. Incidentally, swirling your wine in the glass is another way to impart some extra air into the wine. Air is a good thing at that point, but if you don’t finish the bottle, air after the fact is not, so a quality wine stopper is another accessory you’ll want.
These are just a few of the wine accessories that you’ll find at Cabo Winery. Wine accessories also make great gifts for the wine lover in your life. Come see us today– we’re just a short drive from Cornelius, NC.
