Wine Decanters 101: Everything You Need to Know

Picture this: After patiently waiting for the ideal moment to uncork that bottle of wine you’ve been carefully preserving in your wine fridge for years; you finally indulge in a well-deserved pour. However, as you take a sip, you’re met with an unexpected sight: sediment swirling in your wine, ruining what should be a moment of pure pleasure.

That’s why decanting wine holds equal importance to storing it, ensuring that its quality can be fully enjoyed. Whether your wine has been stored for a few months or several years, decanting is an essential step for any red that has been stored in your Grand Cru Fridge.
