A wine decanter is a vessel, typically made of glass or crystal, used to hold and aerate wine before serving. Decanters help to enhance your wine’s flavors and aromas.

It serves several purposes, including separating sediment from older wines, enhancing the wine’s aroma and flavor by allowing it to breathe, and presenting the wine in an elegant manner.

Decanters usually have a wide base and a narrow neck, which helps in pouring the wine while minimizing the risk of sediment entering the glass. They come in various shapes and designs, ranging from traditional to modern styles.
