Top tips include how to cool wine quickly – for those last minute parties – and how to impress guests with pairings and mulled wine recipes.

How to Remove Red Wine
Quickly cover the stain with a thick layer of salt or club soda, let the stain sit for an hour and brush off afterwards.


Cool Down Wine Quickly
Wrap the wet towel around your bottle of wine and place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes, until it is chilled and it will significantly decrease the wine’s temperature.

Mulled Wine Recipe
Warm up your guests! Mulled wine is easy once you know the recipe: 10 cloves, 2 cinnamon sticks, ¼ cup caster sugar, 1 roughly grated nutmeg, 2 cups water, roughly grated rind of 1 orange, 1 apple roughly chopped and 750ml fruity red wine. Remember to serve immediately!

Create your own Pairing
Use this helpful tip sheet to create your own four course pairing menu, a Pinot Noir with steak, the Crozes-Hermitage with poultry, a nice Eroica Riesling with fruit and cheese and then a sweet Ruby Port like Croft Fine Ruby.

The Coravin Model Two Elite is available in three festive limited-edition colours of vibrant red, gleaming gold and sparkling silver.
