Decanting or actually called caraffing leads to more air in the wine.

We actually recommend all still wines for careers. About 30-90 minutes are good for almost every wine. This of course applies to red wine, but especially to orange wine and white wine, it really brings some wine to life.

Especially with Natural wines the supply of air is actually always good. You will notice that, even if you try a wine the next day there is a lot going on in terms of taste! Just give it a try.

You can actually use any vessel for decanting. We prefer it to be uncomplicated with our Erlmayer Decanter but you can also use a (clean) saucepan or a flower vase. We usually pour the decanting wine back into the bottle, so you can enjoy the beautiful bottle and allow yourself some air right away with the next wine of the evening.
