When it comes to wine, there’s not much to complain about. In fact, it’s essentially the only thing that gets us through the end of a long work week. (That and the prospect of sleeping in and devouring a stack of pancakes on Saturday morning. But we digress.)
Though sipping on Chardonnay or a stiff red is always a good time, the
nightly weekly routine has gotten a little stale. Luckily for us, the world of wine product creators has taken a more humorous approach to some of its latest offerings, making the act of drinking a little less desperate, and more entertaining (though there will always be that fine line).
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite gadgets to hit the market. Grab a bottle, your favorite glass, and scroll down to check them out. Cheers!
