Countdown to Christmas-12 Days- Decanters for the Wine Lover

Decanters can be purchased in all sizes, shapes, brands and prices. Some things to consider when buying a decanter:

  • Easy of cleaning: It is important to be able to clean a decanter. Numerous shapes are available and some just do not look easy to clean. Because of their shape, decanters can be difficult to dry. Special drying stands are available that help to hold the decanter upside down for the water to drain.
  • Shapes: Many wine decanters have a wide base that enables the wine to be easily swirled. Other decanters are artistically designed with an o-shape.
  • Ease of pouring: Any decanter should have easy pouring. Especially with red wine no one wants the wine spilled on a white tablecloth.
  • Brands: Most manufacturers of wineglasses also produce decanters.
  • Prices: Prices can vary from $20 to a couple of hundred dollars.

Decanters can be bought online and at a variety of stores ranging from box stores to high-end department stores. With so many decanters available it’s a good idea to have an idea of the style of decanter and a price range before shopping

Another gift idea: Decanter funnels and strainers are also available. The strainer or screen keeps the normal sediment in the wine from entering into the decanter.

Not sure which decanter to give as a gift then go with a gift certificate!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Cheers! Kathy
