To some, there are just two types of wine: red and white. To others, there are endless combinations of varietals, locations, and vintages that produce continuously unique bottles of wine made for sipping and savoring. If you identify with the latter camp of wine drinkers and feel that the label wine aficionado isn't too far of a stretch, you likely have a bar cart full of wine accessories already stocked at home. If not, it's time to elevate your accessories.
Yes, a classic set of wine glasses is a good place to start, but there are so many other accessories that every oenophile should have at their disposal. For instance, a decanter to allow your red wine to taste as full-bodied as it's meant to be or a beautiful (and functional) wine rack to show off your favorite bottles. Not to mention wine coolers, stoppers, coasters, carriers, and the perfect opener. Take your wine Wednesday up a notch with a few of the best wine accessories around.
