What to give a wine enthusiast?
I recommend not giving a bottle of wine unless you have either something they want or something very special. That is because usually half the fun for a wine enthusiast is searching high and low for their perfect bottle. Instead, give them the perfect place to store their most precious bottles.
A Tabletop Wine Cellar to Love
At Hammacher Schlemmer, we found the perfect one. This is the best tabletop wine cellar around. It is the Haier Thermoelectric 8 bottle Wine Cellar. It’s convenient size (10″ x 20.6″ x17.7″) allows it to fit in just about anywhere, and the sleek modern design will go well with all types of decor. What makes this wine fridge so great is:
- Easy set up: I just plugged and used the control pad to set the desired temperature. If you are one for reading manuals, the instructions are clear and to the point. The touch screen is self-explanatory and has an LED display.
- Great for red or white wine: because the controls are so easy to manipulate, you can increase or decrease the temperature with the touch of a button to accommodate for red or white wine serving temperature requirements. It is also the perfect cellar to hold both red and whites at the same time if you prefer. Just remember the optimal temperature to store both types of wines is 55°F which is different to the serving temperatures of 63°F for red and 43°F for white.
- Soft interior lighting: the beautiful curved door has a smoked glass. So if you want to take a look at the fridge’s contents, all you have to do is press on the light icon on the control panel. The build- in lights also go on shining a discreet soft light when you open the door.
More Great Features
A great plus for me is the fact that the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute gave this Haier wine cellar their best rating after they tested it due to the fact that this model maintained the most accurate temperature and was the easiest to use. I think it is an idea size to have your prized wines in or to have handy the bottles you will be using at your dinner or event. In particular, baby bottles fit very well in ours. This wine cellar is quiet. There is no sound or vibration coming from it at all, that is where the thermal electric system comes into play.
Now you know what to give a wine enthusiast! Anyone on your Santa list you might get this tabletop wine cellar for?
