We keep our wines inside our buffet table which is the darkest place I could store them, away from the pantry where food odors could contaminate the wine.
My only issue with it though is that our bottles are laid out in a single row, taking up precious space. It is not uncommon to see trays, placemats and table napkins stacked on top of bottles of wine. I kind of get nervous too whenever we open it, afraid that with bottles rolling around, one bottle is bound to bump into another and break.
So when Raquel Ong Sue of The Wicked Matter sent over their "wine glass bottle stack" made from slip free silicone, I was just so excited to use it!
With the wine stacker, I eventually managed to stack 7 bottles where there only used to be 4 bottles. Theoretically, I could in fact use it to stack up to 10 bottles, except that the storage space was low and I couldn't squeeze in a third layer.
So pleased that I could stack bottles without fear of having them roll around inside the buffet table
If you think the wine glass bottle stack is wonderful, here's something that solves the issue of drinking from another guest's wine glass - "bird wine glass markers"!
When we had my cousins over for dinner, and I whipped out these cute little birds to put on their wine glasses, they just loved it. They're cute and practical to boot!
Apart from silicone wine bottle stackers and wine markers, Raquel also brought in these handy dandy kitchen products like environment friendly food wraps you can use in lieu of plastic cling wraps, glass coasters, tea infusers and ice/chocolate/jelly molds, among others:
The Wicked Matter's selection of fun and practical products is mompreneur Raquel's brainchild. She shares she used to have a 9-5 job, but felt frustrated for not being able to spend time with her son. Thanks to her supportive husband who encouraged her to go into business so she would be able to control her time, she decided to look for something interesting and came up with The Wicked Matter.
Whether you love to entertain, or simply need a great hostess gift, remember, The Wicked Matter has the answer!
