Wine Pourers - Get Them Right
One of the best ways to add a little bit of class when serving guests at your house is by using wine pourers. While they were originally designed to use at the bar, many people are using them in their homes for parties and small gatherings. This article will give you all the information you need on this very useful tool.
Wine pourers are a set of clear plastic cups that are used when pouring or serving wine. They come in different sizes so that it's easy to find one to fit your needs. They are also available in a variety of styles and colors. A red wine pourer can be used for red wine, white wine, champagne or any other type of drink you're serving. They are an excellent way to show your class when serving, whether at a restaurant, at a social gathering or even at home.
One thing you'll want to pay special attention to is the handle on your wine pourer. The handle should be made from metal and should fit snugly into the cup without any resistance or slipping. This is one of the most important pieces to your wine pourer, as loose handles can easily cause the wine to spill out or fly in the air when you are pouring or serving. This can be a big disaster.
Next, look closely at the rim of the wine pourers. Most of them have a thin metal stick on the bottom that goes all the way around the rim. This will help keep your glass from spilling all over the table when you are serving. If you have a lot of disposable wine glasses, this will be very convenient.
Some people choose not to use powders. In fact, I personally don't use them at all when serving wine. Instead, I prefer to pour the wine directly into each individual glass. The only time I have used pourers that are intended to be used for serving is when serving white wine. However, if you are serving wine in a colored glass, then it may make sense to use them for that as well.
Some wine pourers also come with a special holder that will go onto your glass after it has been poured. This will ensure that the glass stays down and doesn't spill. If you choose this option, then you may want to make sure you have a long stem so that the wine pourer does not tip over. The best options available are those that have an extending stem that will stay right on the glass once the wine pourer is placed securely on it. This way you won't have to worry about your glasses falling off either.
Finally, you'll want to make sure that you buy a good quality wine pourer. There are a variety of options out there, but you'll want to focus on quality first. There is nothing worse than buying wine pourers that don't hold up over time. The problem with some of the cheaper ones is that they will bend or break easily. Even though you get what you pay for, that doesn't mean you have to settle for inferior products. Remember, you want quality products, and although it may be more expensive, you will be able to use them longer.
Once you've found the right wine pourers, you'll want to make sure that you practice with them before you actually start serving. You don't want to waste your money on something that won't work properly. Start out by serving small amounts of wine in cups until you know how your pourer works and what goes into each glass. Then, start serving larger portions of wine in large glasses. Eventually you will be serving full-blown wine parties and it will be time for you to upgrade your wine pourers.
