Wine Accessories

I see more and more people drink and enjoy wines in India. From the light refreshing whites, to the rich bold reds, with rosé and sparkling in between, it is exciting times for the industry at large.

And while it’s easy to find a wine you like, it’s less than easy to have the right accessories at hand to truly enjoy the experience.

Linked below are some accessories I’ve used and recommend and which are easily available on Some other brands that I love are only available through and . Will do a separate post on them soon.

You can click on the links or the picture to go directly to the product page.

  1. Corkscrew

I used to be stuck without a corkscrew until I started carrying one in my wallet! There are many corkscrews available online. Choose any that you like and are comfortable with.

Classic Corkscrew

Winged Corkscrew

Double Tap Corkscrew

2. Decanter 

Most wines benefit from a little time to breathe after having been bottled up for so long. You don’t really need a fancy decanter, a basic one like this serves the purpose just as well.

Or if you fancy it, you can go for one like this

3. Glasses

I recently did an instagram post on wine glasses and although different glasses do alter the aromas and experience, it is impractical to have different glasses for each type of grape variety! Three glasses – one for red, one for white and one for sparkling is enough. Listed below are the glasses I’ve owned and are available in India. I coudn’t find my favourite Universal glass online, will remember to link it as and when it becomes available.

Lucaris Shanghai Soul – My go to glass!

Lucaris Tokyo Temptation – Great for bold Reds.

Tagrock Wine Glasses – I love the big bowl.

Zalto Glasses – I love their Universal glass. Unfortunately could not find that one online.

Schott Zwiesel Glasses – A bit on the expensive side but worth it!

Champagne Glasses – Classic flutes. Tulip and coupes are great too!

4. Wine cooler/Ice Bucket

 A wine cooler or ice bucket is perfect to maintain the temperature of the wine, once its out of the refrigerator or wine fridge. There are many options available online, click on the image for product details.

6. Wine Books

I love books and feel they make for great gifts, too! Linked below are some of the wine books I’ve read and gifted extensively.

7. Wine Chiller/ Wine Fridge

Wine suffers a lot with fluctuation in temperatures. It should ideally be stored at an even temperature. While some people may benefit from their cities climate and can store it in a cupboard or under the bed, others like me, who live in a city where the average room temperature hovers around 30 degree Celsius, may need a wine chiller.

The Carysil range is available in 15 bottle, 24 bottle and 32 bottle capacity, and the Kaff chiller is available in 35-50 bottle capacity.

8. Coravin – A wine preservation system.

A great invention for the lover of fine wines! Or wine tasters! Coravin is a Wine Preservation System designed to pour wine without removing the cork, so wine always tastes like it has just been opened—even years later.

Great for when you want to have a glass or two and not open the full bottle. This one is a Model Two Wine system

Also available in different colours.

The non-coring Coravin Needle gently passes through corks without displacing cork material. Once the Needle is removed, the cork simply expands back to its normal shape. As wine is extracted through the needle, it is replaced with pure Argon gas, ensuring oxygen never touches the remaining wine, keeping it as fresh as the day it was bottled.

These are some of my favourite wine accessories that I have used. Hope you find them useful too! Cheers!
