Designed to take advantage of the natural cooling properties of terracotta, our wine coolers when soaked in water really will bring down the temperature of your wine, or help to maintain the temperature of pre-chilled wine. Terracotta vessels have been used for many decades in hot climates for storing & cooling water. Chill the natural way and bring some panache to your barbeque or dinner party. For best results always soak the cooler in water before use. This wine cooler is supplied with a matching hexagonal saucer designed to catch those necessary drips of condensation.
