As a lover of wine, and more recently a convert to the red variety, I am always on the lookout for ways to improve the wine drinking experience and make it more of a luxury. Is there a better way to spend a night than cuddled up on the sofa with a glass of wine in hand?
Across social media, and throughout homeware catalogues, I saw gorgeous carafes made specifically for wine. I know some see decanting as an added hassle or unnecessary step, but for wine it can only improve the flavour and boost the scent of that glass of wine in your hand.
Investing in a carafe was one of my better decisions, because pouring a bottle of red in to this glass beauty and leaving it to rest for a short while immediately make the scent stronger and more attractive, whilst widening the flavours to tingle your tastebuds.
It also looks pretty great when left around the house – how much more mature can you get than having a glass carafe? Even if it is corner shop wine that it contains!
This would also make a great gift, and I have my eye on another few options from Red Candy that would be a lovely surprise for some friends that have commented on my own carafe. Whether it’s a birthday or other special occasion, this is something that somebody can treasure for life and if your friends are anything like mine – it will certainly be well used!
Retailing at just £22.50 this is a bargain too and so it begs the question, why wouldn’t you want one?0
