Vacu Vin Lucite



I've been keeping an eye out for the perfect wine bottle spout for a few months now. I'm not a good pourer . . . dripping everywhere is a problem, as many middle-aged men will attest to. And it just makes such a poor impression when I begin slurping up the precious drops off the dinner table. My template for the perfect spout has been the metal ones used during the UGC Bordeaux tasting held this January in Toronto. The producers all had their labels emblazened on these perfectly shaped metal spouts, which apparently is manufactured in house because I've scoured the internet and not a single retailer has them.

So I found the next best thing. Junors at Bayview Village, coming through in the clutch for me, yet again.

These are Vacu Vin Lucite Wine Pourers, exquisitely shaped and very similar to what I was looking for. Finally, I'm drip free. Why would I need such a thing? A lot of what I want (in wine, food, clothing) doesn't make sense and has no relevance in real life. But I tell myself I'm special like that . . . no, I have no problems falling asleep at night. Drip free at last, drip free at least, tha . . . . . . . . . . . (ok, I'll stop)
