Summer may be coming to a close, but the heat is here to stay. Unfortunately for us, a lukewarm wine is simply out of the question. And yet, waiting hours for your wine to chill in the fridge is much too time-consuming. For those moments when you need a quick fix, here are rounded five life hacks that will significantly cut down that wine-chilling time.

The ice in the bucket makes sense, but why the salt? Much like with unpaved roads in the wintertime, salt helps the ice melt, thus putting your wine to rest in an icy bath. This method is by far the fastest for cooling an entire bottle of wine, with some people boasting that their bottle was chilled in under 5 minutes.
Let the bottle sweat on the table after you’ve poured everyone’s first glass; the aromas and flavors of the wine will change as its temperature changes, which I love.
