W/W Carafe

If you are a wine connoisseur, you are bound to appreciate the brilliant design behind the W/W Carafe. In order to increase the wine’s flavor, the W/W has a special stainless steel filter with a matrix of holes. As the wine is poured through this filter, the surface of the wine increases eightfold compared to wine poured through a normal wine bottle, and the wine undergoes an 800% greater aeration process!

The W/W Carafe, which stands for “water” and “wine” is also great for other beverages since the filter stops ice or other large garnishes such as herbs and fruits from pouring into the glass. Continue reading
