Le Chateau Crystal Carafe and Wine Decanter

Decanting wine can enhance the flavor of the wine through aeration, allowing the wine to breathe and softening the tannins in the wine. Decanters can also be used to help remove sediment from older wines. 

If the wine lover in your life is just getting started and doesn't have a decanter, or if they could use a much fancier upgrade, this crystal decanter is sure to spark joy. Hand blown, radiant, and designed to hold a standard 750ml bottle.
