By Robyn Doyon-Aitken, Web producer

July 5th, 2012

Update: Congrats to SarahJB. Her comment was picked at random, and she's our wine tools winner. Thank you all for participating in the giveaway. Don't miss the next Behind the Kitchen Door feature in Fine Cooking #119. Award-winning retaurateur Tom Douglas shares his built-for-entertaining kitchen and his favorite gadgets and serveware will be up for grabs. Coming soon!

Calling all wine lovers. Get ready to drool, or spit, as you're apt to do at serious wine tastings. We were lucky enough to spend the day in the kitchen of Fine Cooking contributor Maria Helm Sinskey, a chef, cookbook author, and co-owner and culinary director of picturesque Robert Sinskey Vineyards in Napa, California. Yes, many a bottle of wine was open, and, as the conversation flowed, Maria shared with us-and now you-the wine tools she reaches for most, from caddy to corkscrew.

To win Maria's must-haves, simply leave a comment below. On Monday, August 6, 2012, I'll pick a comment at random and the winner can start planning his or her next kitchen counter wine tasting. The prize pack is worth more than $585. (Now closed).
Behind the Kitchen Door: Go on a guided tour of Maria's kitchen.

Maria Helm Sinskey's Must-Have Wine Tools
wine caddy corkscrew

Maria uses an antique wine caddy to store ready-to-drink reds. You could win a sleek modern version of Maria's antique caddy made by Blomus.


  Maria compares using her Château Laguiole corkscrew to putting on a pair of party shoes and insists it's worth the price tag.
wine decanter stemware
"Wine needs to breathe to fully develop its complex flavors," Maria says. She uses a one-of-a-kind handblown water pitcher as a decanter to help it along. The artists at Esque Studio in Portland made Maria's decanter and one especially for our winner.   Have your own wine tasting party with Maria's three favorite glasses: Riedel's Ouverture red wine glasses (center), Vinum Bordeaux glasses (left), and Vinum Burgundy glasses (right). We'll send you a pair of each.
olive oil soap placeholder
"Rather than blow through liquid soap, I run my sponge over this solid block of Savon de Marseille olive oil soap," Maria says. "It even prevents red wine stains from setting if you act quickly and use a cloth dampened with cool water to rub it onto the stain."

Your hutch looks amazing. I wish for that! What luck finding the island. I never thought of a moving island. Why was that something you wanted? Your kitchen must have room enough to accomodate turning it or just moving back and forth for ease of food preparation? I love the look of everything. Your experience in kitchens has guided you in finishes for cabinets etc., and yes, it's nice that it reflects your taste instead of looking like mine- haha. I have a beautiful kitchen, but maybe it looks like everyone elses.
I love yours. Thanks for sharing. Posted: 7:45 pm on August 8th

adyrocco writes: I loved your article on chef Maria Helm Sinskey and the pictures of her kitchen. Just like chef Maria I love to cook as well as enjoying a good glass of wine. Food always tastes better when the right type of wine is poured. I entartain quite often at my home and the kitchen becomes the focal gathering spot. I am always looking for new recipes and wines to serve my friends and family. Since I do not have very many wine tools, I would love to have Maria's must have items for my kitchen.

gardengallivant writes: Having used oil soap for cleaning leather I am not surprised it works well but I am pleased to know it will remove wine stains. I appreciate fine tools as much as the quality wine. They make serving a pleasure and they make it easier to relax amidst company when hosting others, which I find challenging sometimes.

maxman writes: Awesome kitchen and an excellent collection of tools. I've owned several knockoffs of the Laguiole, and its a great design, but the cheaper ones aren't never very sturdy: I uncork something like 20+ cases of wine over the course of a year, and probably end up binning 2-3 of the cheaper corkscrews.
