This is a vintage terracotta wine cooler that comes complete with a terracotta saucer, to protect your table from marks.
Perfect for Summer drinks outdoors. It would make a great gift for a host/hostess filled with their favourite bottle.
The unglazed terracotta has been stamped with a gorgeous circular 'Vin frais' (fresh wine) indentation, before firing, which adds to the charm and simplicity of the design.
The wine cooler stands 24cms/9½" tall and is 12cms/ 4¾" diameter.
The saucer measures 12.5cms/ 5" diameter and is 1cms/ ¼" deep
They weigh 1.3 kgs/2.8 lbs, combined.
The inside of this wine cooler is super smooth and it has no chips or cracks. The outside, being unglazed terracotta, has a 'rough' surface texture and all the original clay marks from firing giving a wonderful 'earthy' rustic charm.
These wine coolers are very effective during Summer to keep your white wine or rosé chilled. It can also be used in Winter to keep your red wine at the correct room temperature.
There are two ways to use it:
For chilling white wine and rosé:
Soak the wine cooler in cold water for about 7 minutes. The clay will darken as it absorbs the moisture, empty the water and place your favourite bottle of chilled wine in the cooler. The evaporation process will keep your wine cold for 3/4 hours!
For maintaining red wine at the 'idéale température':
Once you have warmed your red wine to the correct room temperature simply place it into the wine cooler and it will remain at the same temperature throughout the meal.
