Wine Tip of the Week - How to Quickly Chill a Bottle of Wine

If you have a bottle of wine you need to serve, but it's too warm - never fear (or should I say "chill"!).  All you need is a bucket, filled half with ice and half with cold water - enough to cover most of the bottle when submerged.   The water is crucial - without it the wine will take much longer to cool down. Adding some salt to the mix will help the wine to cool off even faster.  

Put your bottle in the bucket - and the wine temperature should drop about 10 degrees for each 10 minutes in the bucket. Works for red, white, sparkling - whatever you need (sorry doesn't work so good for boxed wine!).
