Cool wine quickly

How do you chill a wine as quickly as possible? If you put ice cubes in the wine, a sommelier dies somewhere in the world. So they say. Of course, we don't want that to happen. That's why we're telling you our best methods for chilling white, rosé and sparkling wine quickly and without compromise.

Our 4 best methods

Frozen grapes

5 minutes

Keep a few frozen grapes in the freezer to chill wine with when needed. Put 1-2 grapes in the glass or 6-8 in a decanter. Certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but very quick and especially recommended for a spontaneous aperitif.

Salt and ice

10 minutes

Put ice cubes in a bucket or sink, sprinkle generously with salt, and add ice-cold water. Professionals call this method «frapping.» It is important to rotate the bottle every few minutes so that the wine cools evenly.

Cloth and freezer

15 minutes

Wrap the bottle in a damp paper or cloth kitchen towel and place it in the freezer. It's best to set a timer so you don't accidentally freeze the bottle. It is recommended to gently swirl the bottle every 5 minutes.

Special kitchen utensils

20 minutes

There are cooling sleeves in all shapes and colors for sale, as well as special aerators with cooling rods. They don't cost much and are certainly a worthwhile purchase for wine fans. Both must be placed in the freezer early - preferably permanently.
