Pearls of Wisdom

Rather than drag out the ice bucket whenever you'd like to enjoy a little vino, Steven Chavez and Justin English's innovative chillers allow you to enjoy wines by the glass at their ideal sipping temperatures. Simply freeze this set of four sleek, stainless steel orbs, pour a glass, then drop a few into your wine. Like ice cubes, the more "pearls" you use, the more frosty your beverage will get. The sophisticated, oval shape of the chillers is ideal for round-bottomed glasses, since the glimmering spheres will pile up elegantly in the bowl after they're plinked in one at a time.

While vino aficionados wouldn't dare serve a white wine at room temperature, it's also important to give red wines the same consideration. When reds are served too warm, the alcohol tends to predominate, concealing the fruit of the wine and resulting in a loss of typicity and personality. Fortunately, when you pop a wine pearl into a room-temperature pour of red wine, you can bring it down to cellar temperature (54–64º F/12–16º C) in a matter of minutes.

While these pearls are perfect for wine, their ability to chill without altering or diluting delicate flavors also makes them ideal for cooling top-shelf liquors, delicate cocktails, and fresh fruit juices. Made in China.

Sold as a set of 4.

Steven Chavez and Justin English

In most quarries, up to 80% of all soapstone mined is deemed waste or scrap material. In an effort to regain control of the soapstone waste and turn it into something useful, Steven Chavez and Justin English set out to clean up the quarries and find a purpose for the discarded stone.

Soapstone is one of the most effective natural materials this planet produces for conducting and retaining temperature, so Steven and Justin turned to these natural properties to handcraft a beautiful line of soapstone kitchen and barware. They have recently expanded into stainless steel, bringing the same level of sophisticated design and usefulness to entertaining ware. Their company is based in Denver where the majority of the products are handcrafted. collection

    My daughter-in-law loves white wine and this product is perfect in the hot and humid south!

    I have an electric wine chiller for the bottle, but I still use these in a glass!

          Not sure if they work since it was a gift, but I am confident that they will as everything I have purchased from Uncommon Goods has been awesome. I was drinking a luke-warm glass of milk last night and thought these might be good to chill down milk so I am going to buy myself a set. I will review again the results of that purchase!

            I love these. Bought one set for my husband and one for my mother. They work great at chilling the wine and look great in the glass. My only complaint is they are a little pricey BUT if they do last a long time then it was worth paying the price. We've only used twice so far but they seem to work great.

              I liked it for my friend because she enjoys white wine and white wine is best chilled. I thought these would keep it chilled longer in her glass.

                Love these pearls so far. They cool down room temperature wine pretty easily and keep cold wine cold for quite some time. They're easy to clean and re-use.

                  I got this for my mother-in-law, as she is always putting ice into her white wine, which eventually gets watered down. She put them into freezer immediately after opening and was using them by the time we starting eating. Great way to keep white wine chilled.

                  I purchased these as a gift and for myself as well. They seemed like a great gift especially because we entertain with so many white wine drinkers. They are great but can look a bit awkward in a wineglass because the design is bulky. I will say that they look better in stemless glasses.
