Champagne Flutes for a Touch of Elegance

Monday, February 13, 2017

Champagne is the drink of celebration. Be it a wedding, birthday, anniversary or a silver jubilee celebration no special occasion is complete without popping open a bottle of this classy and elegant drink. A drink so classy and reserved for such special occasions needs no compromise on the way it is presented. Apart from the looks of presentation, the essence of the drink also lies in proper bubble formation which considerably enhances the aroma of the drink and hence needs a glass specifically designed to bring out the best in the champagne.
Champagne flutes are the perfect mix of class and function. These are elegantly designed and their shapes ensure that the movement of the bubbles is just right to help bring out the best in the drink. These beautifully crafted long-stemmed glasses are the perfect accessory to add a touch of elegance to any occasion. Choose from the wide variety of classic champagne flute designs that we have in our repertoire and raise a toast in style to mark your special occasion.

Guide to Choosing Champagne Bowls

Saturday, January 14, 2017


Champagne is the best from amongst the world of sparkling wines. Nothing puts the ultimate seal on a special occasion like the sound of the pop of a cork from a champagne bottle. However to make the most of your bottle of Champagne, it needs to be served at the right temperature. The ideal temperature at which champagne is consumed is between 45ºF and 48ºF i.e. 7ºC-9ºC. Ideally champagne is refrigerated to bring it to this temperature so as to enhance its taste before serving.

Changing Seasons

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Summer has now given way to Autumn and Summer activities such as Tennis and Cricket have given way to other outdoor pursuits such as Shooting and Hunting (think Hip Flasks!) and watching Football or other Winter Sports (again think Hip Flasks!). The focus for wine accessories has also moved away from wine and champagne coolers - ice buckets and even acrylic wine glasses suitable for outdoor entertaining and picnics. Although Champagne white and rose wines still need to be chilled, for indoor entertaining more elegant items more suited for Dinner Parties are required – Claret Jugs and Decanters are a must when entertaining your guests and are sure to impress! as would our magnificent Champagne 4 hole cooler with foot.

The ability to describe wine, its flavours and aromas is something every enthusiast looks forward to. It is a fine art that takes a good amount of time and effort to master. For the wine enthusiasts who are interested in increasing their knowledge about wines, Le Nez Du Vin is a great place to begin.

Le Nez Du Vin is a kit containing Wine Aroma Vials along with Illustrated Explanatory Cards and an Instructional Book which is an easy guide to help you master your wine recognition skills and vocabulary.

AntiOx Wine Preserver

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

You seldom finish a wine bottle in one go. So obviously the most common problem faced after enjoying your favourite glass of wine is preserving the same to finsh another day. Maintaining the quality of the wine left over in the bottle is important. So what is the best way to preserve the wine that you leave behind?
There are a few options available. One is that you have the Vacu Vin Wine Saver that helps prevent the deterioration of wine once opened. This wine saver can simply be placed in the neck of the wine which later pumps out the air. There are variants available that are suitable for sparkling wines as well. There are Original Inert Gas Aerosol Wine Preservers as well.
The simplest one however is this AntiOx wine preserver that simply pops onto the bottle firmly and requires no pumping. The micro filter in the top keeps opened bottles as fresh as any other preservers that have been tried and tested. This product has been tested for its efficiency and has had proven results of preserving the flavour for over 10 days and has also markedly outperformed vacuum systems. The special patented filter in the stopper and its silicone construction forms a tight hermetic seal on the bottle which helps preserve the flavour and halts oxidation too. The best feature of this stopper is however the date recording system which helps you keep track.




Decanters Are Essential and not just another wine accessory

Friday, January 08, 2016

If you think that a decanter is just another fancy wine accessory then think again
Decanters are essential if you want to relish the wine at its best
So how does a decanter help in enhancing the wine?
- Aeration. It is a well known fact that wine is generally enhanced by exposure to air. The more it gets exposed the better! Once you pour the wine into the glass it gets aerated to an extent. But pouring wine into the decanters help in aerating the wine even more. The decanters are made in such a way that the large surface of the decanters offer greater exposure to air and thus it gets aerated thoroughly. Aerating the wine enhances it by softening it and developing the aromas further. Decanting helps even the cheaper wines to an extent
- Sedimentation. Older wines often have a degree of sedimentation that accumulates at the bottom of a wine bottle. It is best not to drink this. By decanting wine into a decanter one can avoid pouring the seddiment into the decanter and thus make it easier to avoid any seddiment entering the wine glass when pouring from the decanter
 
Fine Wine Accessories offers a good variety of wine decanters. Right from the simple ones to the ornate and unusually shaped decanters, the variety is stunning.
 
The Ships decanters for instance which were traditionally used by Royal Navy ships are characterized by a broader base as compared to the others and there are some classy options available.

If you are looking for something fun we have a whole range of unusually designed duck decanters that come in the shape of a duck. Other options include Symphony Decanter, Prestige Decanter, and Sovereign Decanter etc.

The other available decanters include the Burgundy Vendanges Decanter, Concerto Decanter, the Spiegelau Angelo Decanter, the Hoggett Decanter etc. Unique looks and stunning appearances make these decanters make exquisite gift options too!

Tastevins and Spittoons

Tuesday, October 27, 2015

At Fine Wine Accessories we are always have a good stock of accessories and wine related gadgets for our wine lovers. We have a fine stock of Spittoons and Tastevins amongst our Wine Tasting Equipment.

To the layman these names are a little strange sounding but Tastevins and Spittoons these are commonly used by wine tasters at the wine tastings.

Tastevins and Spittoons happen to be one of the oldest accessories used for wine tasting and date back to the 300 B.C. Even today the Tastevins haven’t lost their charm and importance when it comes to wine tasting and are used by the cellar masters, enthusiasts and wine connoisseurs alike. Tastevins are by far one of the best accessories for analysing the color and clarity of your wine.
We stock lots of different shapes of Tastevins such as the Pewter Burgundian Tastevin, an ideal accessory often used at tastings by both professionals and enthusiastic amateurs alike. The Plain Tastevin with Serpent Handle is a wine tasting dish that looks good and comes in handy for displaying the colour and nose of the wine. The wine Tastevins, Quaiches and spittoons look quite ornate and are excellent wine associated gifts for some special occasions.
Spittoons are, though it sounds a little strange, as the name suggests used for spitting wine rather than drinking it at a tasting. It is not considered rude to spit out wine at a wine tasting and generally individual spittoons are provided for the same. At fine wine accessories we have a wide variety of spittoons including spittoon buckets, stainless steel and plastic hourglass spittoons etc.

Laguiole Corkscrew

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Wine bottles with screw tops or with corks? The debate continues! Wine bottles with corks go way back. These are classic, these are elegant and these are historically preferred too! Fast forward to the present day and we have the screw tops! These are handy, these are less expensive and some say that these show positive ageing results too! So the question remains! Screw tops or corked wine?

Corkscrews still remain in demand

Friday, March 13, 2015

Whilst the number of screw top wine bottles continues to expand at the expense of cork  or cork equivalent stoppered bottles there is still a healthy demand for traditional cork screws.

This is a top quality example and is much sturdier than many of the less expensive models. This model apart from being sturdy is also quite stylishly made to be shown off and not kept hidden at the back of some drawer.

Clef du Vin

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

A scientifically-designed measuring device, Clef du Vin allows you to optimise the tasting, selection and laydown time of your wines. Effective on all wine (white, red, dry, sweet etc) Clef du Vin immediately reveals your wines’ ageing potential over the years to come.

Entertaining and Easy to use The Clef du Vin is dipped into a 10cl glass of wine. For each second that the disc is submerged, the taste and aroma of the wine will be modified, "ageing" the wine by the equivalent of one year. Commence by pouring yourself a glass of wine (10cl), taste and memorise. Dip the Clef du Vin disk into the glass for one second, taste again and compare. Dip the Clef du Vin disk into the glass for two seconds, taste again and compare. Repeat the operation until the wine deteriorates. If after several dips (or a continuous dip of a few seconds), the wine remains pleasant or improves, you can buy with confidence, it will age well. If the wine deteriorates after one or two seconds of contact, the wine has little or no ageing capacity, and should be drunk soon.

When drinking Young Wines with Clef du Vin you can appreciate the real potential of an immature wine in a matter of seconds. Red wines will see their tannins softening, and their roundness appearing. The acidity of dry white wines will be diminished, revealing the subtle flavours of the fruit while sweet white wines will become richer.

Clef du Vin allows you to enjoy today the full potential of a lay down wine, which would have otherwise waited for years. Disclaimer The Clef du Vin accelerates the natural ageing process of wines. Consequently, wines with no ageing capacity may not improve and may actually deteriorate as a result of using Clef du Vin. (It will not turn "plonk" into a fine wine!)

Clef du Vin

The Graal Decanter

Thursday, May 01, 2014

Over the past 10 years we have sold many Claret Jugs and Decanters both traditional and modern, quirky and purely practical, inexpensive as well as top quality. Our favourite and possible our best-selling is Spiegelau's amazing Graal Decanter - not only does it look amazing (causing great admiration and comment around the Dinner table) and is beautifully made, but it acts as one of the most efficient aerators there is. One of our tips is to pour the wine straight into the middle of the Bowl from as high as you dare (without risking an accident!) and with it's huge surface it soon 'softens' your wine bring out it's full potential.

Mothers Day

Monday, March 24, 2014

Wine Accessories are possibly not the first type of present that comes to mind for Mums on Mothering Sunday. Alas we are unable to sell Champagne or Wine which would possibly make one of the most acceptable gifts, we can suggest however some great Champagne Accessories to make the occasion even more memorable! Any Mum would be delighted to receive this amazing Champagne Flute and be really touched by the thought behind the Gift! A silver plated Champagne cork key ring or maybe a Champagne Cork paperweight would also be greatly appreciated. We only hope that Mum is not tee-total!

2013 Vintage in France update

Monday, October 21, 2013

This year’s harvest in Bordeaux has become a very challenging one after a spell of hot and humid weather in the region, with many vineyards bringing forward their harvesting earlier than planned in an attempt to avoid Rot.    This comes after violent hailstorms at the end of July and early August had already reduced potential yields in both Bordeaux and Burgundy - never mind the almost total destruction of vines in parts of the Loire Valley.    There are estimates that in many areas yields will be considerably down on recent years and nobody is expecting anything more than a reasonable vintage at best.    At least we at  Fine Wine Accessories are not affected by such problems which are totally out of our control.
2013 Vintage in France update

2013 Vintage in France – Not all gloom

Monday, September 09, 2013

It looks now as though the 2013 French wine harvest is approaching average size for recent years with an increase of 11% compared with the record low harvest of 2012.

The long,wet winter helped replenish the soil with water, which allowed the vines to withstand the scorching temperatures of July well. Unfortunately, the end of July and the first days of August saw violent hailstorms in the French vineyards which will reduce yields considerably. 

The weather in late August suggests a degree of optimism, especially the hot days which have been offset by cool nights and a light wind which is able to ward off fungal diseases and promote slow maturity. 

Overall, 2013 should be a very interesting vintage year with the daytime heat offset by cool nights in August for a slow and good-quality phenolic maturity. However, no definitive conclusions about this later-than-usual harvest may be drawn until the grapes have been picked. Storms could still change things. 
 
Although we do not supply wine itself remember us for all your Wine Accessory requirements.

Champagne Flutes and Champagne Glasses

Monday, August 19, 2013

Traditionally Champagne and other Sparkling Wines have been served in special Glassware in order, not only to compliment these expensive wines but help preserve the Bubbles (or Mousse) in the glass (with the exception of the Champagne Saucer!).     There are numerous special occasions when champagne and sparkling wines are drunk to celebrate the moment – Parties, Weddings, Christenings, Anniversaries, Birthdays etc as well as celebrating achievements such as sporting victories like winning the Ashes in cricket!
 
The Champagne Flute is without doubt the most popular champagne glass and we offer a huge range of these.      The House of Spiegelau in Bavaria in Germany is without doubt one of the premier glassware manufacturers in the world and we are proud to have a large range of their Champagne Glasses and Flutes on our website.      Champagne Saucers which were so much a part of the ‘Roaring Twenties’ during the last Century are once again proving popular – particularly with the ‘in’ set! in London.
 
Good quality glassware is essential in enhancing the enjoyment of drinking wine (particularly Champagne)  and our range of fine and everyday Champagne Flutes and Glasses offer both quality and excellent value and choice.

New Zealand 2013 Vintage

Monday, August 12, 2013

From time to time we like to post items taken from the World of Wine.   This week it’s a very brief look at New Zealand’s 2013 vintage.
     
The North Island (Gisborne,Hawkes Bay,Martinborough etc) had frost problems in spring which reduced yields in some areas, however the rest of the summer was good enough to produce some really great wines see Craggy Range.
 
The South Island (Marlborough etc) again, like in the Northern Hemisphere had a cold Spring but that gave way to a good Summer that produced some very good quality wines with moderate yields (Pinot Noir especially with Sauvignon Blanc looking promising).
 
Our latest DecanterThe Cetra – certainly would compliment the serving of any New Zealand Pinot Noir!

Wine – France and the rest of Europe

Monday, July 29, 2013

Following on from our Blog last week about prospects for  this year’s English vintage, this week we’re having a brief look at prospects in France and the rest of Europe.    Like the UK most of Europe suffered from cold and wet weather in late winter and early spring which put vines back by app 4 weeks, but again like UK they have had a good spell of hot and sunny weather enabling vines to catch up app 2 weeks.        Last year saw a very small harvest in France particularly and if this is repeated prices are sure to rise!
Although we don’t supply wine itself we can certainly offer a great range of Wine Accessories from Corkscrews and Champagne Sabres to Wine CoolersWine Preservers and Wine Tasting Accessories – all of which make great Wine related gifts.

Wine – English Vineyards

Monday, July 22, 2013

Without Wine there would be no Wine Accessories never mind Fine Wine Accessories! and as we are an English Company we would like to write a little on this year’s English vintage.      The cold and wet Spring put the vines back by nearly 3 weeks but with the recent amazing spell of fine hot weather many vineyards are saying that they have now almost caught up, with really good prospects for this year’s harvest – this is taken from the Vineyard Manager’s report from Denbies Vineyard in Surrey:
‘’ The dry warm conditions over the last few weeks have coincided with  the flowering and pollination of this year’s crop which is the best possible weather for good pollination and fruit set.      The crop looks to be significantly up on previous years.    This is the first year that Denbies will make a Sauvignon Blanc from vines grown on their own estate and this very late ripening variety is also flowering and looks like setting a good crop. ‘’  
Remember our great range of Wine Glasses and Champagne Flutes will compliment English Wine perfectly!

Corkscrews

Saturday, May 11, 2013

For countless generations corkscrews have been used to open wine bottles – from Hand-held corkscrews to Bar-mounted corkscrews, from Champagne Sabres to Port Tongs.    Corkscrews are possibly one of the first wine accessories that spring to mind.      Although many wines now have ‘screw tops’ (Stelvin Closures) as many less expensive wines were using cheap corks made from  immature trees – causing many problems with ‘cork-taint’,  most fine wines are still loyal to the cork.    See our full range of corkscrews
