Temperature control for reds and whites

Here's an important thing to know about wine:

Serving Temperature is one of the factors that affects the taste of wine and
is under your control. Tools that help you control serving temperature add to
your pleasure. Here are two ways to use this tool-

*You put it around a cold bottle to keep it that way. For instance, if you're carrying
white wine to a BYOB or a picnic, the sleeve will keep it at serving temperature.
It seems to last for about an hour and a half if it's wrapped with something insulating.

*You put it over a room-temperature bottle of red wine to cool it down to a proper
serving temp of around 60-65F.

At this low price, anyone who takes bottles of wine to friends or to restaurants should
have one.

The product description is a little misleading, as it says "Chills wine bottles in 5 minutes and keeps them cold for 3 hours without ice." This will not chill a room …
