Wine Tasting

by Andrew Hoge

Whether sailing the waters or lounging at port, keeping a bottle (or two) of your favorite vino is always a good idea. Consider these must-have accessories to elevate any sipping experience while impressing your guests.

MENU Wine Breather Carafe

A sure-fire way to maximize the taste of your wine and impress the oenophiles on board is to keep a wine breather within arm’s reach. This award-winning design from MENU is made with a glass carafe and separate neck breather that serves as a connector to the bottle of wine. Simply flip your favorite bottle upside down once it’s been attached and then flip back over to allow the aerated wine to flow back into the bottle. ($69.99; 2modern.com)

Mark & Graham Silver Nautilus Wine Bucket

This stunning wine bucket is an expert blend of form and function, keeping your white and sparkling wines crisp and icy cool throughout each meal in an oh-so-chic, seashell shaped vessel. ($199; markandgraham.com)

Toyo Sakaki Glass Stacking Glasses

There are many excellent pairings to be had while at sea, but waves and stemmed wine glasses are not one of them. These chic, stackable, and stemless tumblers have been a favorite for nearly 50 years and will save you on both space and possible breakage. ($33 per pack of 6; jinenstore.com)
