If you have visited a Texas winery recently, you may have seen those really cool pourers that look like animal heads, college teams, grapes, and more. Besides being just a pourer of your wine without dripping, they also aerate the wine helping improve the flavor too.
I have always loved the looks of the pourers, so I contacted the company Spectrum Wine Specialties. I learned they are a family owned business based in Cedar Park, Texas, which helps explain why a number of Texas wineries carry their products. I needed to be a part too!
So, Texas Wine Lover now sells the Spectrum wine pourers in our shop, and get this, they’re on sale right now!
To help me test out a couple of the Spectrum wine pourers, Lance Lawhon from Spectrum Wine Specialties, sent me a couple of their most popular pourers, the Buck and the Zombie.
We already had a pourer that looked similar, so it was a good chance to see what the difference was. The first thing I noticed when I pulled the Buck wine pourer out of the box was the weight of the pourer. Comparing it to the other one we had, you could tell it was heavier, and I actually felt its robustness and could see the quality. The pourer comes with an extra rubber sleeve in case the years of use wear out the rubber sleeve that is already attached to the pourer.
I had to try the Zombie next. This is a fairly new product for Spectrum Wine Specialties, and any true zombie and Walking Dead fan (okay, that’s me too!) would surely want this in their wine arsenal. Both pourers did a fine job pouring the wine I was going to enjoy.
Spectrum Wine Specialties is also planning some wine pourers based on college logos. Currently there is a Texas A&M and I saw a prototype of the next one that will be coming out. Sorry, I can’t give away the secret!
I asked Lance to tell me a little about their business to which he replied:
“Our business is to meet the merchandise needs of winery tasting rooms and gift shops. While we provide our master-craft wine pourers, we also partner with wineries to provide logoed promotional products for their branding. Texas boasts over 300 wineries and more are coming online every year. We love visiting with winery owners and providing them with the products that they need for their tasting rooms. If you need merchandise for your tasting room or would like us to help you with promotional products, don’t hesitate to call 512-832-1889 or email me at [email protected].”
Check out the Spectrum wine pourers we are selling in our shop, and I am sure you will not be disappointed with the quality the next time you pour your favorite wine.
