This essential step exposes wine to the air and begins the release of the wine's unique aromatics thereby allowing for full flavor enjoyment.

Ultimately wine decanters significantly enhance presentation which completes the full sensory experience.Attention California Residents - Proposition 65 Warning: Consuming foods or beverages that have been kept or served in leaded crystal products or handling products made of leaded crystal will expose you to lead a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.The Story of RiedelFew glass makers can claim a history dating to the 17th century.
