I cant lie, I’ve never felt compelled to buy a wine fridge. I just didn’t think I needed one in my life. Turns-out I was wrong, and now I have a new best friend. So, when the nice folks at New Air decided to send me an 18 bottle wine fridge for review purposes…well…I figured it wouldn’t hurt to take a look! At the very worst, if I wasn’t a big fan of the product, I’d sell the fridge in a yard sale, keep the cash, not do a review and send all their follow-up emails to spam…
The reason I say “if I wasn’t a big fan of the product” is because one of the one of the “perks” of writing about wine online is that I do receive quite a fair amount of promotional products. However; I will say that about 80% of what I receive never makes it onto this site…mainly because a decent amount of it tends to be garbage and I wouldn’t dare put my name on it.
Now don’t get me wrong, if there were a $1,000 check in every package I received, I’d sell-out my name faster than you could say “Châteauneuf-du-Pape” and you’d hear me singing the praises of EVERY promo-piece I received in the mail! Reviews such as: “Seriously guys! These wine glasses are AMAZING! They have an indentation in the side to ‘help aerate the wine,’ and essentially make a $10 bottle taste like a $1,000 bottle! You need these things in your life!” would be waaaay more common-place! [On a side-note, if the PR company is reading this who sent me those “aerating wine glasses”…they were junk….I can’t believe you’re trying to deceive the general public into buying them; and for what it’s worth, the Mrs. already broke them.]
As it turns out, PR agencies are cheap, the $1,000 checks never show-up, and I begrudgingly have to maintain my integrity. So here are some key highlights of my new best friend:
So anyway, yeah, I’m converted. Buy a wine fridge.This entry was posted in News and tagged how to store wine, storing wine, wine fridge. Bookmark the permalink. ← Domaine Serene Wine Dinner at Restaurant Medure. Follow Your Dreams. →
