Mesmerize the oenophiles in your life with this magic decanter. Place it mouth-to-mouth with an open wine bottle. Flip it so the red liquid pours into the decanter. Wine aeration is cut to two minutes. Serve from the decanter or reverse the flow and pour the aerated vino back into the bottle and serve from there. Inversion washes down the sides of the decanter, further aerating it. The magic? However you flip it, no hands, Ma! Ideal for young wines under three years. Or use it as a conventional decanter for vintages six years or older that contain sediment.
Each carafe is hand-blown for the Danish design house Menu.

"It's about creating aesthetically pleasing designs that evoke true feelings,” Menu founder Bjarne Hansen told the online magazine Lonny, “as well as improving processes in people's daily lives.” Ranging from tabletop objects to bath fixtures to lighting and furniture, the Danish brand’s pursuit of "soft minimalism" involves collaborations with designers from all over the world. The company’s guiding spirit is a quest for functional originality—with each product having either a new purpose, incorporating a new material or utilizing a new production method.
Menu is just as dedicated to responsible manufacturing as it is innovation. Working to locate new partners in developing countries around the world, the company searches out local factories or small private co-operations to turn out high quality goods and also provide a better economic foundation for the people involved in that production. "We’re passionate about design, new materials and clever details," say the folks at Menu, "and we dream about making a difference."
