Wine Carafes or decanters are used for serving serving drinks such as water or wine. Traditionally, wine decanters or carafes are shaped with a flat base, with a wide bowl and a neck that is tapered inwards to a height. The shape allows the wine to breathe in a spacious area where the wine can sit and enjoy being exposed to the air. Any sediment or cork, often found in older wines in red wines may be filtered and removed; pouring into a decanter can also help by removing underlying bitter tastes and flavours that are associated with aged wines. These glass carafes are designed to release the aromas of your favourite wines and are beautifully handmade and packed in a contemporary styled gift box.
