Wine Pegs

Wine pegs, also known as wine sticks or wine pourers, are an essential tool for any wine lover. They come in various shapes, sizes and materials and can serve different purposes. In this guide, we will walk you through the basics of wine pegs – what they are, how to use them and what to look for when buying one.

Wine pegs are small, thin rods that are inserted into the neck of a wine bottle. They come in different shapes and sizes, but their main purpose is to help aerate or decant wine as it is poured from the bottle. This process helps to enhance the flavor and aroma of the wine, making it more enjoyable to drink.

Types of Wine Pegs

  • Aerator Wine Pegs –These types of wine pegs are designed to allow air to mix with the wine as it is poured, helping to soften tannins and release the aroma of the wine.
  • Pourer Wine Pegs – These wine pegs have a spout at the end, making it easier to pour and control the flow of wine from the bottle.
  • Decanter Wine Pegs – Similar to aerator wine pegs, these are designed to help decant the wine as it is poured, removing any sediment or particles and improving its flavor and aroma.
  • Stopper Wine Pegs – These wine pegs have a stopper at the end to preserve any leftover wine in the bottle for later consumption.

How to Use Our Wine Pegs

  • Insert the wine peg into the neck of the bottle, making sure it is securely in place.
  • Pour the wine slowly and steadily through the spout or aerator of the wine peg.
  • If using an aerator or decanter wine peg, allow the wine to pour out for a few seconds before serving to allow for proper aeration.
  • After use, remove the wine peg and clean it thoroughly before storing.

What to Consider When Buying Wine Pegs

  • Material – Wine pegs can be made from various materials such as stainless steel, plastic, or glass. Stainless steel is a durable and easy-to-clean option whereas plastic may not last as long but is more affordable.
  • Size – Consider the size of the neck of your wine bottles when choosing a wine peg. You want to make sure it will fit securely and properly in the bottle.
