With summer on the way, many of us will be looking forward to entertaining outdoors. Alongside BBQ equipment and outdoor furniture, a high quality champagne cooler should feature among your list of essentials for al fresco (and indoor) dining.

What You Need to Know About Chilling Champagne

Essentially a champagne cooler (otherwise known as a champagne bucket) is used to rapidly cool champagne and other wines. Serving a good quality champagne at the wrong temperature can impair it's taste and character, so this is a wine accessory that could make all the difference - particularly if you have wine buffs over for dinner! A wine cooler is a portable and more convenient option to storing your wine in the fridge. It is possible to keep the wine chilled on or by the table and therefore eliminates the need for various trips to the refrigerator.

Although even experts tend to differ in their opinions to the correct temperature champagne should be chilled to, in general somewhere between 39-48 degrees is considered adequate - although care should be taken with vintage champagnes, which should be at the higher end of this temperature scale around 46-48 degrees. The champagne should then be served in a flute, which will strengthen the aroma of the champagne and also help the flow of air bubbles. It's important to remember that while the drink itself should be served chilled, the flutes should always remain at room temperature.
