After a few years in the wine business, you can be sure Kim has found a few favorite wine tools to make her job easier. Kim has curated this list to be useful, durable, and well priced. We think these are some of the best wine tools and accessories you can buy, and they are definitely on our “must have” list!
Without further ado…here are a few of Kim’s favorite things…
Folded Hills “Can’t Keep them in Stock” Trucker Hat
The name says it all. Not a wine tool, but a must have accessory! Any color is a big hit…especially the new navy because Andy said we didn’t need another color and that new navy sold out first! * New navy available in tasting rooms only.
Vinluxe Pro Wine Aerator, Diffuser
Super simple wine tool, and a quick way to get some air into a young wine.
Le Chateau Wine Decanter
This is one wine accessory we can’t live without. Wine decanters are available at every price. We are pretty hard on ours, dragging them from events to tasting rooms and back. This decanter is durable, elegant and very well priced.
“Wine Folly: Magnum Edition: The Master Guide”
Have all the tools and accessories, but don’t know much about wine? The definitive guide to wines from all over the world. Easy and fun to read for novices and experts alike.
“The New California Wine:
A Guide to the Producers and Wines Behind a Revolution in Taste”
Another favorite book, this one featuring Angela Osborne, winemaker for Folded Hills. Angela is a pioneer in the movement towards drinkable, pairable, naturally made wines. Learn more about this seminal change in wine making.
Tiffany All-Purpose Red Wine Glass
Elegant tool AND accessory! You might not think of Tiffany as either inexpensive or sensible, but these glasses are the perfect size and shape for nearly any wine…red, white or rosé. They are strong, feel good in the hand, and at $25 per glass are a great value.
Corkcicle 12 oz. Triple Insulated Stemless Glass
Perfect summertime wine accessory! Kim loves this thermal tumbler to keep her whites and rosés cool while enjoying a warm summer evening on the terrace.
Vacu Vin Rapid Ice Wine Cooler
This compact cool pack is an excellent wine tool to transport chilled bottles for beach picnics or to friend’s houses.
The Original Vacu Vin Wine Saver with One Vacuum Stopper
Chateau Spill Red Wine Stain Remover
There you go! We hope you enjoy these great wine tools as much as we do!
