Breathable Wine Glasses

Wine glasses…we buy them cheaply, they break at the slightest knock, there are even those few that we find difficult to get Sandra’s bright pink lipstick off after playing host to friends. Does it really matter though? We all have those friends that have the cheap glasses, and those that have the latest designer ones…but is there really any difference? Well, we didn’t think much either way, until we tried to Breathable Wine Glasses.

Wine should be aerated, and especially tannic red variations. This is because all those yummy flavours and aromas have been cooped up in a large wine bottle and have become compact. Aeration allows the wine to ‘breathe’ and for the flavours to unfold within a glass or decanter and sit for a while before the maximum and full potential of flavour should be consumed. The Breathable Wine Glasses on first appearances don’t look any different from any other glass you may use, fancy or cheaply bought. However, there is a huge difference. these glasses are made from lead-free crystal glass, which without going into boring scientific talk, oxygenate the wine up to 30 times faster than a ‘standard’ glass would. This means that you can enjoy your wine faster than you usually would, with the maximum flavour at the forefront of each sip.

Apparently, as most wine connoisseurs will know, simply de-corking a bottle and leaving it to ‘air’ will not do the job correctly, or even remotely. If you want to aerate a wine accordingly, a decanter should be used and left for up to two hours to allow the full flavours of the wine to shine through., The glasses do this job from 2-4 minutes, so you can spend more time drinking and less time thinking about drinking! Wash as usual (but be careful with them), and enjoy an altogether different flavour of wine. Try it for yourself… take a standard glass and one of the Breathable Wine Glasses and you will be able to taste the difference straight away. Available from Firebox and come in a pack of 2 for £24.99.
