Walid Richa and Moussa Zakharia, two engineers of Lebanese origin, created a record-breaking wine glass: 2.40 metres high with a diameter of 1.65 metres. To impress a Wine Lover you don't have to gift this giant! Wine glasses are a great gift for those who have a passion for wine: they are designed to enhance the sensory characteristics of our favourites, made of crystal or transparent glass to allow us to admire their colour and reflections.

A 19th-century corkscrew, the Japanned Thomson model, was sold at auction for the incredible price of $23,000. Not a bad gift... but certainly not for all pockets! Choosing a good corkscrew does not mean mortgaging the house: there are all sorts of quality models: lever, automatic, wall-mounted – all of which will make a connoisseur happy.


Idee Regalo per un Natale da Wine Lover: Decanter

The ancient Romans served wine in metal jugs of various shapes; some elaborate, some less so. The custom has remained until more recent times, with monarchs often searching for luxurious containers to give their table a touch of unique style. Today it is no longer necessary to show off gold Decanters to impress a connoisseur – don't worry, it's enough to choose one of good quality!

Wine Set

In ancient Greece no one needed a wine set: aristocrats consumed rivers of it during banquets, and all they needed was a decorated vase from which to serve the drink and enough cups for the guests. No corkscrew, no thermometer, no stopper and no aerator. Today things have changed a bit: a nice wine set with the right accessories can really be the ideal gift for a Wine Lover.

Wine Cabinet

The world's largest wine cellar is located in Mileştii Mici, Moldova, a small town less than 20km from the capital Chișinău. It houses a splendid two million bottles. Quite a job to keep them organised! If your enthusiast friend doesn't need to store such a large number of bottles, a wine cabinet can really be the idea that saves Christmas for you (and him).
