Vinology PreserVin Auto Wine Preserver & Thermometer (£25)

This is no ordinary wine stopper – it's a super stopper. Its built in thermometer and date tracker ensures that you're keeping your wine at the correct temperature – and lets you know how many days it's been since your bottle was sealed. It'll auto detect when the bottle's tilted, and its built-in pump detects the air pressure in the bottle and adjusts it to suit.

Samsung RW33EBSS1 Wine Cooler (£215)

If you want to get serious about your wine, you'll want a wine cooler to house your collection. Prices can reach the thousands, but this effort from Samsung comes in at a reasonable price. It'll store up to 33 bottles, and can maintain different temperature zones ranging from 3C to 18C for red and white wines. A low vibration system stops your bottles from getting all shook up, while the door blocks UV radiation. Now you just need some wine to put in it.
