The Wine Lover’s Journal

Those new to the world of wine will love this journal. It will allow them to keep track of wines they liked (and disliked) and record notes on aroma, flavor and appearance. So much more refined than keeping notes on assorted pieces of notepads and copier paper!

Riedel Crystal Stemware Gift Set

Riedel is the stemware of choice for wine connoisseurs: the bowl of each style is crafted specifically to enhance the flavors and aromas of that particular wine. It’s scientific, and it works! This set includes two 21½-ounce Bordeaux glasses and two 13-ounce Zinfandel/Chianti Classico/Riesling glasses. The decanter is sold separately, but we like to give them together as a gift.

Crystal Gift Set

Solle Wine Carrier

When we first saw tote bag which adjusts to a shoulder bag, we wanted it as a designer backpack. When we found out it was a wine tote, we wanted it even more! A simply beautiful, lightweight accessory for the fashionable oenophile. Lined with an easy to wash sueded microfiber. All three fabrications are lovely, but the Jacquard nylon is actually our favorite: sleek and modern.

  • Soft Napa Cowhide
  • Black Jacquard Nylon with Leather Trim
  • Honey Crocodile Print Leather

Royce Leather Connoisseur Wine Carrier

Le Creuset® Screwpull™
Classic Wine Opener Set

No wine opener takes out corks as cleanly and easily as the Screwpull—the “corkscrew” we use at THE NIBBLE™. The most ornery cork comes out in two seconds. The set comes with a foil cutter, a collar to catch drips, and a bottle stopper. It’s so easy to use, a child could open a bottle of wine—assuming you want to start training your child to curate your collection.

Cooper Cooler

Chill your wines in just minutes with the help of this exceptional appliance. Simply add ice and water and plug it in. White wine is cooled in six minutes, red wine in three. The Cooper Cooler eliminates the problem we’ve all faced, of forgetting to chill the wine, sticking the bottle in the freezer...and forgetting it there.

This attractive decanter does more than look good on a dinner table: it helps young wines toaerate and develop flavors, and helps clarify and eliminate sediment in old wines. Any serious wine collector should never be without a duck decanter; and Riedel’s, as you can see, is simply gorgeous.
