Written by Donna Marie Desfor, Culinary Consultant and Chef | Feb 20, 2012 6:42 PM

Keeping your wines at just the right drinking temperatures can be anyone’s great dilemma. Too cold and the temperature masks a wines complexities; too warm and the flavors may take a back seat to the alcohol.  The fast and easy way to solve this problem is Corkcicle.  Designed to replicate the beauty of a natural icicle, the frozen Corkcicle chills your wine from the inside out, and then maintains the perfect drinking temperature – without diluting the wine – for about 1 hour. 

 

The beauty of Corkcicle lies in its easy-to-use (watch video) design and simple care instructions.  Just keep the Corkcicle in the freezer until you’re ready to use.  Once you’ve opened and poured a taste from the bottle to make room for Corkcicle, insert into the bottle.  If you’re bottle is already chilled, Corkcicle helps maintain a perfect drinking temperature while you’re bottle sits outs; if you’re bottle is a bit warmer and your wine needs to be chilled, Corkcicle chills it to perfect drinking temperature from the inside out.  You don’t have to mess with ice buckets or worry that your wine becomes too chilled sitting in the ice bath.  Corkcicle make it easy to experience any wine at the perfect temperature every time.
