My blog and Instagram have always been for the casual wine drinker, as that’s what I am. I have no formal training, but rather, just have a passion for wine and wanted to share that passion. Well, recently I have been wanting to step up my wine game a little bit. I have been interested in the WSET test for the past year or so but being pregnant really put a damper on that hahaha. Anyways, I am finally pulling the trigger on that. WOOHOOO!! That being said I have, also, began using new instruments to help me better appreciate and understand wine. My first order being the Vinlumin.
Taste With Your Eyes
Am I the only one who has never understood how people can accurately state how long a bottle will lay down for and when it will be at its best? Every time I see those statements I swear it just seems made up! Well, I figured it is about time for me to learn how to do this. Here enters the Vinlumin. The Vinlumin allows users to better observe the color and clarity of the wine and helps determine when the wine will drink best. Curious as to why the color and clarity matter? View a great article on it here. But to sum it up…science has proven that visualizations effect our taste a great deal.
Vinlumin’s are used by Master Sommeliers to analyze a wine, wine collectors to have a greater appreciation of their collections, and wineries to create the perfect wine. If you want to step up your wine game I highly recommend the Vinlumin! P.S. I think it would make a great, unique gift for the wine lover in your life.
All About Quality
The Vinlumin is crafted at a small shop, not mass produced, and made of solid walnut. It is then finished with an oil by hand. It comes with two lights: one for decanting and the other for analyzing allowing the drinker to get a full understanding of their wine! Lastly, you can get a personalized plate on your Vinlumin which is perfect for a gift, don’t you think?
