As humans we need air, we need oxygen, we need to breathe in order to live. As simple as that. Our wine needs to breathe too, and Menu’s Winebreather is the perfect tool for that.
So, how does it work? Simply press the Winebreather carafe onto the top of an opened bottle of wine and flip it over so that the wine pours into the decanter. This will shorten your wine aeration time down to two minutes. You simply pop it onto your favorite red wine, flip it upside down, and you’ve got a properly aerated bottle of wine that can be served in the decanter or in the original bottle. All it needs is a bit of air for it to come to life. Continue reading →

The Fusionbrand IceOrb receptacle is great for doing exactly all these things: you can use it to make the ice, to store it, to keep food chilled and to serve cold drinks. Continue reading →

When we entertain for dinner, we’re mostly worried about the dish set we’re going to use, the table decoration, the map, the candles and somehow we give very little thought, if any, to the glasses. We usually end up with the all familiar “regular” wine glass. As I saw the Argento Drinkware set, designed by Julia Knight, I immediately thought to myself that this is a unique, elegant and sophisticated set, which will add to the entire decoration and will help to create the ambiance I want.

The Peugeot Clef du Vin (Wine Key) is a calibrated tool that instantly reveals the aging potential of any wine. As wine ages, it first develops, then matures and finally declines.
