Spring Into New Tasting Experiences With Premium Wine Accessories

Most of Canada can describe the 2024 winter season as “the winter that wasn’t.” Aside from the occasional snowfall — most of which melted in a matter of days — Canadians have been treated to an unusually mild winter.
Now that spring is here, it’s time to usher in brighter days. For wine lovers, that means trading bold, comforting winter wines for crisp, quenching spring wines. And there’s no better way to enjoy wine than with a wide selection of premium wine accessories.

For the purpose of helping you toast the spirit of spring, we’ve assembled this thoughtful guide on premium wine accessories. Specifically, you’ll learn how to plan a spring or summer outdoor excursion with premium wine accessories to make every spring wine-tasting experience a special occasion.

Pop a Bottle of Bubbly With a Champagne Sabre

Champagne SabreSuppose you’re planning a romantic afternoon with your significant other. There’s no better way to create a romantic moment than to indulge in a chilled bottle of champagne. And there’s no better way to open a bottle of champagne than with a champagne sabre. 


Benefits of Champagne Sabres

Sabering a bottle of Champagne is a show-stopping spectacle that adds a touch of theatre to any celebration, and it’s the perfect way to intrigue your date. The bubbles burst as the popping sound creates an atmosphere of excitement and festivity. Your champagne sabre creates a clean break at the bottle’s neck, ensuring a smooth pour uncompromised by glass shards.

The Champagne sabre typically has a long, flat blade with a hilt. The blade’s design glides smoothly along the seam of the bottle. The hilt often features an elegant handle, enhancing the overall aesthetic and providing a comfortable grip for the sabreur.

Firstly, ensure the Champagne or sparkling wine bottle is well-chilled because a cold temperature makes a cleaner break. Identify the seam on the bottle that separates the neck from the base.

With a swift, confident motion, slide the sabre along the seam, applying even pressure to the lip of the bottle. Allow the blade to follow through, continuing past the lip of the bottle. The pressure and speed will result in a clean break, and the cork will fly.

Embrace the tradition, sharpen your sabering skills, and pop your champagne in style!
