Liquid Crystal Wine Thermometer*


Marianne Rohrlich, in yesterday's "Registry" feature in the New York Times Sunday Styles section, wrote, "The Carl Mertens Wine Thermometer shows whether the temperature of a bottle is within the ideal range for the type of wine listed on the band. It requires no batteries."

From a website:

    Carl Mertens Wine Thermometer

    This unique thermometer clips around a wine bottle and within a minute or so, the temperature of the wine appears on the heat-sensitive band.

    If the temperature is within the range for the type of wine indicated on the part of the band, the wine is at its prime temperature and ready to be served.

    Material: 18/10 satin steel.


*Bag the wine: this could double as one totally cool cuff bracelet.

It would be surface temp if the wine had only been chilled for a short period. If it had been in a chiller for a decent length of time though, the temperature should be consistent throughout.

No, it gives you the temperature of the surface of the bottle, which may be different from the wine inside.
