As the holidays approach, we at Tanglewood are excited to offer a curated selection of premium wine accessories. Whether you're a wine enthusiast or looking for the perfect gift, our products are designed to impress. Here's our Top 10 Gift Guide to make your Christmas shopping easier and more luxurious.
1. The Durand
If you've ever struggled with removing older or fragile wine corks, The Durand is the solution you've been waiting for. Developed by wine collector Mark Taylor and named after world-renowned sommelier Yves Durand, this patented two-part device ensures that corks come out whole and intact—no more broken pieces floating in your wine.
Not just a tool, but a piece of craftsmanship, The Durand has earned a reputation among wine lovers, collectors, and sommeliers both nationally and internationally. It's a bit of a trade secret in the industry, making it a perfect gift for sommeliers or anyone who appreciates fine wine.
2. Water & Wines France Puzzle
The very first design from Water and Wines, the French wine puzzle highlights the country’s key wine-producing regions, main grape varieties, and star appellations. The beautiful hand-drawn map of France was carefully curated by Water and Wines favourite sommelier and we have also included grape profiles describing aromas, key characteristics, and food pairing tips! Illustrated by hand, our team attentively reviewed every detail with the help of some of the top sommeliers in the world.
Stunning, mindful, and informative, it is so much more than a puzzle: you will learn one thing or two about wine, of course, but also about French geography, as you start playing your way into the world of wine.
For every item sold Water and Wines plant one tree and make a donation to improve global access to safe drinking water. Water and Wines want to make puzzles you can feel good about.
3. Jancis Robinson Collection, The Wine Glass
When it comes to enjoying wine, the glass can make all the difference. That's why we proudly offer the Jancis Robinson Collection's Wine Glass, a collaboration between Richard Brendon and renowned wine critic Jancis Robinson.
Produced by Richard Brendon and part of the Jancis Robinson range, this glass enhances the aromas, flavours, and textures of any wine you pour into it. It's not just a wine glass; it's an all-in-one solution for wine enjoyment, making it an ideal gift for anyone who loves wine. With this glass, you're not just giving a vessel; you're giving the gift of an elevated wine experience.

4. Perceval Sommelier Wine Knife in Serpentwood
The Perceval Sommelier Wine Knife in Serpentwood is not just a tool, but a piece of craftsmanship with a rich history. Inspired by 19th-century knives and designed by l’Atelier Perceval, this wine knife features sleek, pure lines. Its unique elements include a pinched toad and a 6-ellipsis custom-made helical bit that aids in smooth cork insertion.
The materials are chosen for their longevity, with a high-end steel blade that offers an extremely sharp edge. The handle, made from the interior of oak wine barrels, gives a nod to Perceval's winemaker friends. But what truly sets this knife apart is its serpentwood handle. This precious wood from French Guiana has a unique look, with hard and soft fibres that give it a shiny, silky touch once polished.
As each product is unique, the photos are non-contractual, making each wine knife a one-of-a-kind gift. This is more than just a wine knife; it's an art piece, designed to offer a luxurious and flawless wine-opening experience.
