There are wine drinkers, and then there are people that can't get enough of their wine. It's the latter that are changing the way the rest of the world enjoys this time-honored alcohol. And, rapid progression has been made in the recent past. What was once the domain of the elite - and royalty - has finally become a drink for any and every man. But, it's taken centuries to get to this point.
Enjoying a perfect glass of wine is a huge balance; the age of the wine, the temperature and way it's been stored, and the amount of oxygen allowed in once opened all plays a part. In the past, it was difficult to achieve this without years of experience, plenty of space and oodles of money. Now, you'll find wine aerator glasses, mechanized corkscrew and electric wine opener devices. Incidentally, the wine bottle opener or two that you'll spot here make incredible gifts for wine lovers.
And, that's the thing isn't it? If you're giving wine gifts, you want the recipient to feel like a king, don't you?
