Wine lovers, listen up!

Whether you're a red or white kind of gal, wine is usually best served alongside some delicious nibbles and in the company of good friends.

A long stem glass in one hand, a delicately assembled cheese/cracker combo in the other – but with two full hands how are you supposed to hold your phone, take a selfie or pour another glass?

Well, this hands-free wine glass holder is here to save the day.

The Neoprene Stemstrap Wine Glass Holder might just be our favourite invention of recent times, and although it may not be the most stylish accessory we've ever seen, we're willing to look past that.

Originally created by WineYoke, this practical product is now available in pink alongside the standard black model.

There are also a number variations available to buy on Amazon, so g'wan, treat yo' self and your friends to this wonderful contraption – and who knows, you might even start a trend down the local.


You know that feeling when you get home from work and you are CRAVING a glass of vino? 

Well, then you will also know that hideous feeling when you realise your bottle of white isn't in the fridge – and so it's warm.

Violent stuff.

Anyway, you can try fling it in the freezer, but that will still take time, and who has that these days?

Well, there is apparently a very handy little trick, that will have you grape juice ice cold in minutes.

Just enough time to pop your PJs on. 

Wine expert Brian McClintic recently spoke to My Domaine about how he gets the ideal wine temperature. 

And just incase you're wondering – that would be 7 to 13 degrees for white and rosé wine, and 13 and 18 degrees Celsius for a glass red.

Simply pop your bottle in "an ice water bath with plenty of salt," which "works  like a charm."

"The full bottle should be submerged. It's hard to say how much salt-let's just say a liberal amount. What happens is the bottle is encased in ice and therefore comes down in temperature much more quickly."

How does it work? Well, basically salt reduces the freezing point of water, meaning it cools down quicker without turning into ice.

So pour yourself a glass this evening, you deserve it!
