The base is a silver-colored plastic with a black plastic underside, and it is shaped like a flying saucer. The center disk of the base is spring-floating so that the weight of a wine bottle depresses it slightly to turn on the bluish LED lights. THEN, it really resembles a flying saucer. The double-walled clear plastic topper fits over the bottle to hold it the chill already in the wine for a couple of hours. If you dine outside, it's great to keep hungry wasps and flies out of the open bottle. It comes with four AA batteries that fit into the bottom of the base.
Although the Skybar works exactly as advertised, the question I found myself asking is "Why buy this?" The answer isn't entirely obvious, although it would make an unusual wedding or housewarming gift. In my case, I started resenting it a bit when I went to find a place to store it -- it takes up a fair amount of space. And then I had to ask myself whether I would take it out to display white wine during a party. The problem then becomes where to put the top when pouring wine. Besides, at a party, the wine goes so quickly that I'd be replacing the display bottle almost as soon as I opened it. To me, the Skybar is more useful on a night when my husband and I want to share a bottle of wine but anticipate spreading out our glasses over the course of a couple of hours -- any longer than that, and the wine would be room temperature.
While it works as advertised and while it makes a bottle of wine a nice focal point on a bar or table, its practical use is questionable.

A fun purchase for wine lovers.
Recommended product! Oh and Amazon packs it really well and shipped it in way before the expected date I was to receive it.
FORM - The base of the unit is fairly attractive, and the LED lights aren't too bright, so that it creates a soft glow. The bottom 1/3 and very top of the wine bottle ends up being illuminated by the LEDs. It's really only useful if you are using it in a very dark room, and after setting it up, I realized I would almost never get the full effect, because I don't eat in the dark. In fact, in the dark it is almost too bright and makes your wine bottle look presumptuous. I had a $15 bottle of champagne I put in it for New Year's Eve, and was quickly made fun of by my guests for its display, as if we were viewing an ancient relic at the Louvre. Meanwhile, its 5 brethren were relegated to the refrigerator since I only had one glow cover. I think the glow cover works a little better when the light is dimmed, in between candlelight and full room lighting, as it then just accents the bottle. However it still felt ridiculous having the lights on.
FUNCTION - the cover is not designed to actually chill your wine, but to maintain (as much as possible) an already-chilled bottle, like you would get from an ice bucket or neoprene travel sleeve. Skybar's site advertises it as being able to keep your wine cool "for hours." The top section is plastic, which probably insulates better than glass, but also makes it look a bit cheap. I left an open bottle of white under it for two hours and tested it against another bottle I left in an ice bucket.Read more ›

While it basically fulfills everything it's advertised as, this cover is, in a word, underwhelming.

I love this wine bottle cover! It has the blue/white/led lights around the base for when you put a bottle of wine on it, it will light up and create a warm glow. Read morePublished on September 19, 2012 by Stacy Walker
