Thankfully, there’s a lot of genius wine hacks to save you from wine hell!

Check out these genius wine hacks you’ll simply love!


Chill your wine quickly.

Forgotten to chill your wine?

Simply wrap it around a dampened kitchen paper and place in the fridge for five to ten minutes.

Your wine will be lovely and cold in now time!


Want to put ice in your wine, but don’t want it to get watered down?

Freeze some grapes and use them as ice cubes.

They last a little longer compared to regular ice, and once they’ve thawed, they make a nice snack!


Make your cheap wine taste expensive by using a blender.

Simply pour your cheap wine in a blender, put the lid on, and then blend for 30 seconds.

This aerates the wine, which allows the flavors to come out faster. 


No corkscrew? No problem!

This handy video will show you easy ways to open your wine. It’s a miracle!


Broken the cork? Don’t worry, simply use a coffee filter as a wine-saver.

It’ll catch the cork and save you from looking like an idiot while you choked on it.

Nobody wants to look like that when drinking wine!


Store your corked wine on its side.

It sounds weird but if you’re storing leftover wine, putting it on its side stops oxidation, which makes the wine go off quicker. No one wants to drink off wine.

Pour your leftover wine into an ice cube tray to freeze.

That way you can make the most of your wine without letting it go to waste.

It also means you’ll be able to have wine slushies this summer.



You can use your leftover wine for cooking too.

It’s a great way to make your food taste even better!

Simply add a splash to a stir-fry or a pasta and vegetable dish. It’s an excellent use for white wine you don’t really like.



Traveling with wine?

Protect your wine from breaking by wrapping it in an inflatable pool float or a thermal sock.


Cheap bottle of red?

Simply add a small pinch of salt to make it taste a lot better!
