Description

THE REAL STUFF:

1 x Waiters Corkscrew. Anyone that says they like wine should be able to use one of these.

1 x Wine Bottle Stopper. If in the rare case that you don’t finish the bottle, well then this little gadget will come into hand.

1 x 750ml bottle of wine. We like to change things up a bit and if we taste a good one, it will find its way into a crate.

The Munchies and other Stuff:

1 x Zang Green Chocolate: ZANG! Espresso and Chocolate mixed together. Why didn’t we think of this? All served in a 34g bar of deliciousness. NOT for those with weak hearts, caffeine sensitivity or if you are pregnant.

1 x Lindor Lindt. 3 Lindt chocolate balls. NOT for sharing.

Delivered:

Delivered in a hand crafted wooden crated that is that gift that keeps on giving. Unlike bows, ribbons, wrapping of those weird bags, your CrateworX crate can be re-purposed. From toolboxes to veggie gardens, we would love to see what your crate gets up to once open.

Along with your crate, because we believe that receiving just 1 gift is not cool, we like to throw a few extra little surprises into each crate.

1 x Mini Crow bar. To break into your CrateworX crate and afterwards you have an awesome key ring.

1 x Wallet Ninja. No good Ninja worth his salt would ever go on a mission without his Wallet Ninja (Insert Ninja sound here)

 

Some cool and completely pointless science facts about wine:

– A 2005 study found that the scores of “wine experts” are essentially meaningless, revealing that a typical judge’s scoring of a wine varied by plus/minus four points over three blind tastings poured from the same bottle.

–  There is an organization that utilizes wine tastings to dig wells in Africa. They call themselves Wine to Water.

–  The world’s oldest person attributed her ripe old age (122) to a diet of olive oil, port wine and 1kg of chocolate per week. –

– During the prohibition, grape juice mix was sold with the warning “After dissolving the brick in a gallon of water, do not place the liquid in a jug away in the cupboard for twenty days, because then it would turn into wine.” Separately

–  In 2001, a panel of wine experts gave one of the lowest possible scores to average-priced Bordeaux that was served in a cheap bottle. When it was served in an expensive bottle, it received one of the highest possible scores.

– A man broke into Buckingham Palace spending half hour eating cheddar cheese and wandering around. He tripped several alarms, but they were faulty. He viewed the royal portraits and rested on the throne for a while. He drank half a bottle of wine before becoming tired and leaving.

– The Swedish former physical education teacher, Richard Juhlin has the best nose for wine (champagne specifically) and in famous blind tasting of 2003, arranged by Spectacle du Monde, he correctly identified 43 of 50 wines. The one who came in second correctly identified only four.

– Chinese people who want to display their wealth drink expensive red wines mixed with Coca-Cola and Sprite to make it taste more palatable.

–  Soy sauce contains 10 times the antioxidants of red wine. We don’t think you will be drinking soy sauce though?
