put a cork in it…

It’s another simple, fabulous and genius invention, and its one of those things that when you see it, you say to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

Introducing…Corkcicle.

The cork with an icicle attached to it that keeps wine perfectly chilled. Not too hot, and not too cold…just right! Once you drink one bottle, have another because you can re-use the Corkcicle over and over again after washing.

For businesses or brides, they offer a Corkcicles Custom line too.

As you may know, this made Oprah’s Favorite Things List this year, but I promise, it was one of our favorite things before we knew that Oprah was a fan too.

Being the vino lover that she is, Jenna has been carrying Corkcicle at Fleur de Lis, a paperie, for several months. Stop in to buy one in time for Christmas, or email her to order one.

We can tell you {and we love our vino, especially now that none of us our pregnant for the first time this year}, we’ve used it, it works and we love it.

Good news for all you Tutto Bella wine lovers…the kind folks over at Corkcicle are offering you a FREE Corkcicle Classic.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes. Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes. Silver white winters that melt into springs. These are a few of our favorite things.
