7 Must-Have Gadgets For Wine Lovers

If you consider yourself a bit of a wine connoisseur, take your drinking experience to the next level with these handy gadgets.

Drinking wine comes easy to some, but if you want to perfect the art and be a true sommelier, you may need a little help.

Matthew Goode and Matthew Rhys from The Wine Show inspired us to track down some of the most practical and bizarre wine gadgets of the moment. 

Try these on your next drinking occasion - whether that's at home on your couch, or out with buddies.

1. Electric Wine Opener/Thermometer

Why go to all the effort to manually open your bottle of wine, when an electric gadger can do that for you? The Ozeri electric wine opener is rechargable and also has an in-built thermometer to make sure you're serving up the perfect glass of wine. 

SHOP: Ozeri Maestro Electric Wine Opener, $38.95 (Amazon)

2. iSommelier

This smart device will aerate and decant your wine in mere minutes. The iSommelier "aerates wine with a constant flow of purified and highly concentrated oxygen" - taking the decanting process to a whole new level. If you have a few vintage wines in your cellar, you may want to give this baby a whirl.
