The WineOvation Is A Gun-Shaped Bottle Opener

wine-opener-gun

We’re not sure who this is going to appeal to, aside from maybe the most fervent NRA members, but there you have it: a gun-shaped wine bottle opener. Yes, the WineOvation is a device meant to look exactly like a revolver, and whose only purpose is to open wine bottles. You unholster the thing, insert the bottle, and pull the trigger. The mechanism will slowly pull the cork out and stop when it’s done; pushing the trigger the other way will spit it back out. We suppose it’s worth a couple of comments from your guests the first time they see it, and for $40, we suspect it’s worth the novelty.

This Fashionable Bag Can Carry and Dispense Wine

wine-bag-1

Girls are always carrying so much stuff in their bags, you have to wonder just how much of it is actually useful. I mean, do you really need to carry your entire makeup collection, “just in case”? Why not just get this Wine Dispensing Travel Tote that can pack a whopping 5 litres of wine, and cleverly dispense it through a spigot on the side? You just buy the plastic bag of wine, cram it in there, and be the life of any party you go to. You don’t even have to go to a party, you can be the party. There’ll even be room left in the bag for a few trinkets after you’ve stuffed it full of fermented grape juice. The design printed on the bag might even be considered fashionable by someone with questionable taste, so it’s totally worth the $136USD asking price.

Wine Bottle Fire Extinguisher Camouflages Your Safety Equipment

wine-bottle-fire-extinguisher-fully-functional-xl

The best place to keep a fire extinguisher is somewhere where you can reach for it quickly. But, in the name of keeping an aesthetically pleasing environment, we tend to hide them in cabinets, under the sink, or someplace out of sight. That could add a few seconds of frantic looking around until you can save your home from a fire. So to solve this issue, The Wine Bottle Fire Extinguisher looks like a standard bottle of red wine, and would look just fine sitting among your carefully thought out decor. Of course, in your panic you’ll have to remember to reach for this rather than your fancy Bordeaux, but we think it’s a decent effort to combine form with function. It’s $149 and comes in a nice wooden gift box.

3D Printed Modular Wine Rack is Ingenious In Its Versatility

gustavino-8

We come across a lot of wine racks while sourcing content for OhGizmo! But we’ve rarely seen a product as ingenious as the GustaVino 3D printed modular wine rack. By using some clever hexagonal geometry, the modules are able to accommodate wine collections of varying sizes without leaving many empty spots as your numbers dwindle. The basic three-piece kit can handle between 1 and 4 bottles with just a little reconfiguration, for instance. And as your collection grows, you can simply add more hexagons; the modularity allows you to build out the overall rack in different ways, and let your imagination run wild.

You can purchase the digital file for £19, and print as much rack as you want at home. But if you don’t just happen to own a 3D printer, prices for pre-made modules start at £19 for a 3-piece kit, £39 for a 6-piece, and up to £137 for a 24-piece monster.

Time To Chill: Rough Day Wine Glass

Rough Day Wine Glass

There’s nothing like unwinding with a glass of wine at the end of a long day. But how much wine is just right or just enough for whatever stress you’re trying to relieve? Although not accurate for everyone, the ‘Rough Day Wine Glass’ provides a good-enough estimate. Have half a glass for a day that was just like any other, pour more into your glass if you had a particularly rough day, or fill it up to the brim if you just want to forget it all.

The quirky wine glass is sold in pairs and is available online for $24.

Ice Cap Chills And Aerates Your Wine In Seconds

1_IceCap_LS-8426_SHOP

Good wine can be fussy. It needs to be served chilled, and preferably let to breathe for a bit. But with the Ice Cap, you can expedite the process somewhat. It’s a refrigerated funnel of sorts that cools and aerates your wine as you’re pouring it into your glass. Simply place the Ice Cap in the freezer for a few hours, then place it on top of your glass and pour your room-temperature wine. The wine will run through the chilled coils, aerating and cooling down at the same time, dropping any beverage’s temperature by up to 10 °C in seconds. We’re not sure how many glasses it’s able to handle before it need to be cooled down again, but we can’t imagine it not being able to handle at least a couple of them. For $35, it’s a handy gadget to keep in the kitchen.

Friends Beverage Group Coffee Wine

 

Can’t decide if you’d like to unwind with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee? Friends Fun Wine is well aware of that fact, which is why they’ve come up with two new flavors that incorporate wine’s velvet smoothness with coffee’s distinct aroma that’ll give you a quick pick-me-up for sure: Cabernet Coffee Espresso and Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino.

The coolest part about it? There’s zero caffeine and very little alcohol in the mix, plus it’s low on calories. As for the taste, well, that’s an entirely different story, but don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it.
