  • White Wine
  • Grapes

I'm sure most of you will be in the position tonight where you get home from work with a bottle of wine that needs chilling before you can drink it. Nothing worse than warm white wine. You could pop it into the freezer for an hour or even throw a couple of ice cubes into the glass but that either takes ages or waters the wine down. We have another unique solution and it will change your life!


Step 1

You'll need some wine to start. Even if it is pretty cold already this gives it an extra little chill. See ice cubes water it down and ruin all the good work of the wine maker. With this you are using grapes (which wine is made from) so no real loss of flavour.

Step 2

Pick the grapes away from the stems. Not really rocket science this part.

Lash them into some sort of container. A plastic glass, Plastic containers or as I like I did a plastic glass.
