Both a utensil holder and a wine cooler, this piece, courtesy of Les Ateliers Charlevoix, is designed to be practical and indispensable in your daily life. Its raw and enamelled finish will add a touch of elegance to your kitchen while impressing your guests.
It is in the beautiful Charlevoix region that each piece was patiently handcrafted, one at a time. Turning, drying, polishing, cooking, enamelling... the list of steps needed is long to obtain this fabulous result.
As Stéphane, the artisan behind Les Ateliers Charlevoix, says: "What's incredible is to start turning a lump of clay and turn it into a functional, aesthetic and excessively desirable object!"
Wine Cooler Method of Use
Option #1: Place the wine cooler in the fridge for 15 minutes to cool the porcelain. Once cold, remove it from the fridge and place your favourite bottle of wine in it.
Option #2: You can also fill the wine cooler with cold water and ice cubes for 15 minutes or more. Remove the water and ice and then place your bottle inside. This way, the porcelain will keep the bottle cold.
Last minute option: If you are in a pinch and your bottle is room temperature, place the wine cooler and bottle in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes. This way, you will have a fresh bottle to enjoy throughout your meal.
