From wine aerators and coolers to can and can openers, high-quality wine accessories have been a focus of Boyd and Co for over 20 years.
Garry and Nerida are the wine enthusiasts behind the business, who enjoy tasting a wide range of wines and visiting vineyards. “Our love for wine was born on a trip to South Australia, where friends introduced us to their gourmet dinners and took us to the Barossa, McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek areas,” says Garry.
From there, the duo’s passion for wine only grew, meaning they know exactly what people need and want when it comes to wine accessories. Since the duo took over the family business seven years ago, they have acquired a range of innovative products, their wide range has therefore evolved to offer many quality tools that help improve the pleasure of wine.
Check out the six essential wine accessories below.
1. The easy way to open a bottle
The CorkPops Legacy promises you will never break another plug. With a built-in paper cutter, insert the needle of the Legacy straight through the stopper, press once and the stopper comes out safely. The patented cork ejector and easy-to-grip rubber finish make it easy to open the wine. It is the perfect gift for the wine lover.

2. The aeration solution
Proper aeration of the wine is an essential step in pouring the perfect glass of wine. And the Nicholas VinOair Aerator minimizes spatter and stains resulting from aerator-less pouring. Simply place the aerator over the neck of the wine bottle and pour as usual, creating a perfectly oxygenated wine in seconds. The VinOair Premier is also available, with a gravity lid, carrying case and filter.

3. Two in one
Whether you are looking for a chilled glass of pinot gris or a room temperature cabernet, the Nicolas VinOice Collection is both a wine cooler and a pourer in one. Serving wine at its optimum temperature is made easy with this clever Cork Pops design, which includes a cooling rod to chill the wine – place it in the freezer two hours before using – and a pourer that removes drips.

4. Raise your next bottle of bubbles
Add a touch of luxury to your next bottle of bubbles with the DescorJet champagne opener. You still get the satisfying “pop”, but without the hassle and dangers of traditional opening. Simply remove the foil and wire, place the can opener on the cork, squeeze the neck of the bottle, and squeeze the handle to extract the cork. A simple and elegant way to pop your favorite bubble bottle without any flying caps.

5. The perfect gift for the sparkling lover
Keep your open bottle of sparkling wine in pristine condition for weeks on end with the Zzysh champagne conservator. Thanks to an innovative technology, it preserves the aromas, the flavor, the quality and above all the bubbles of the wine. It works by injecting a combination of 100% food safe argon gas with carbon dioxide into the bottle to repressurize it.

6. Enjoy your favorite bottle over the weeks
Prevent open wine from oxidizing with Zzysh Preservative, which helps retain its natural flavor and quality for weeks. The Wine curator Zzysh Argon works by injecting food safe argon gas into the cylinder to remove oxygen. Enveloped by gas and protected by the innovative Zzysh® wine stopper, the wine remains protected. Since argon is heavier than the air replaced and does not react with the wine, the aroma, flavor, color and quality of the bottle are preserved so you can enjoy your favorite bottle by the glass for a few weeks.
