How Decanters Are Great for Parties and Events at Home

Posted by Scott Quarles on 10/27/2013 to Cool Wine Accessories
Decanters are GreatHistorically, decanters were used to filter sediments out of wine as it aged. Modern wines no longer produce enough sediment to filter out, but decanters still have other purposes. The aesthetic value, aeration abilities and convenience of decanters make them a must-have for great parties and events in your home. 

Start your dinner party out smoothly by adding a classy, elegant decanter of wine to the menu. Opt for the classic pear-shaped design in clear glass for a timeless look or choose an edgy, glass-blown design as a conversation starter.

To make your event a success, choose a good decanter to aerate your wine. The process of adding air to your wine refines the taste and encourages the aroma to flow, so that you and your guests have a good time. Choose a decanter with a broad middle. This feature allows the wine to aerate properly for the best results. When choosing the material of your decanter, keep in mind that most connoisseurs favor glass, most specifically crystal, because it keeps the wine untainted. Avoid decorated and colored glass for this reason. The better quality the decanter, the better the wine tastes and the better your event is sure to be.

Finally, embrace the convenience of the decanter. Decanters easily hold a bottle or more of wine. The long, thin neck makes serving the drinks easy, so you can enjoy your party instead of fumbling with the wine bottle. 

Decanters add a certain classiness and sophistication to your home events. Decanters improve any party, whether you are dressed up for hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, dressed down for a quiet birthday party at home or dressed in pajamas and enjoying a glass of wine before bed. Get the most out of your wine with a decanter.
