The Spegelau Wine Glass & Accessory series Vino Grande has sold millions of pieces worldwide. Vino Grande - the 'intelligent' glasses and accessories for elegant and perfect wine drinking. In today's deal we have a Vino Grande Wine Decanter at a huge 74% off RRP!
Wonderfully elegant, generously proportioned and surprisingly affordable (and even moreso via today's deal!), this decanter provides maximum breathing space for your wines. The beautifully tapered long neck allows for graceful lifting and pouring. Made of lead-free crystal. Its size is deceptive, it holds 920ml to the top - plenty of room to hold a full 750ml bottle of wine.
Why decant wine? There are two main reasons why it is good to decant a wine - aeration and sediment removal. Many red wines, some white wines, and Vintage Ports will benefit from aeration in order to soften the hard tannins that remain in the wine.
As for sediment removal, there's nothing wrong with drinking sediment, it just looks ugly sitting at the bottom of your glass and feels like sand when on your tongue. Sediment develops as wine ages as tannins and other compounds solidify over time.
Spiegelau's international presence in the best restaurants, hotels, wine shops, etc. for the past ten years more than certifies:
After undergoing 1500 dishwasher cycles, Spiegelau glassware was certified as "extremely dishwasher safe" by an independent laboratory. They found no scratching, markings, loss of brilliance, foggy shadows, change in color or brilliance or build up of water chemicals and residue.
Spiegelau's remarkable durability can be attributed in large part to the Platinum Glass process. As the glass goes from its powder to its liquid stage, liquid glass is passed through platinum-lined tubes to eliminate any impurities and remove all imperfections and inconsistencies that might otherwise exist. (Platinum prevents leaching that may occur from other equipment linings).
While more expensive, this innovative use of technology proves Spiegelau's commitment to quality. The result is a "high performance" wine glass or accessory with a remarkable marriage of elegance, functionality and durability.
