This spout instantly chills wine by as much 15º F. Storing the spout in a freezer freezes its internal stainless steel tube, and when wine is poured through the spout, the 2′-long, coiled tube immediately cools room-temperature red or white wine. The spout’s shell acts as a thermos, keeping the tube cold enough to chill an entire bottle of wine. An air inlet on the spout can be covered with your thumb to slow down the flow rate, allowing wine to chill longer inside the spout–ideal for pinot grigio or similar varietals that are typically served cold. The spout fits securely inside the neck of a bottle like a cork, allowing confident pours. Freeze for at least six hours prior to use. The Instant Wine Chiller is available for $40. See more photos.

The device is programmed with suggested serving temperatures for champagne, red, white, or rose wines. LED lights indicate when wines are too cool or too warm, and when the wines are at their ideal temperature for consumption. This was originally $199 but now its $110 @ Amazon.

Carlo Rossi has been making wine for quite some time but now it seems they have started something new by taking recycling to a all new level. Showcased on Carlo Rossi’s website are some interesting new concepts such as a lamp, bookshelf, couch, chandelier, and even a surround sound system all constructed out of various sizes of Carlo Rossi wine jugs. By far the most interesting design is the 5.1 Sangria sound system using several 4-5liter wine jugs and holes drilled into the sides to allow music to resonate perfectly.
