Product Description

The elegant Menu Winebreather Carafe adds 10x more oxygen to your wine in under 2 minutes. Simply press the decanter onto the top of an opened bottle of wine and flip it over so the wine pours into the decanter. You can serve the wine directly from the beautifully designed carafe, or flip it back over once it's done to pour the aerated wine back to serve directly from the original bottle. The Menu Winebreather Carafe is the most effective aerator on the market and was the undisputed winner of a Eurofins aerating test.

A few weeks ago I received a sample of a new type of wine decanting product - the Menu Wine Breather. It's a hybrid sort of device that combines characteristics of single-serving active wine aerators (like the Vinturi and the Soiree) with characteristics of an old school passive wine decanter. The net result is a device that promises to aerate an entire bottle of wine in a couple of minutes. I used it for all the wines I served on Thanksgiving so while that experience is fresh in my head I thought to share my thoughts on it for you holiday shopping consideration.

There's a video on the manufacturer's website that demonstrates how the product works. I'd recommend having a look at that:

DESIGN

The first thing I noticed when unboxing the product is its contemporary Danish design aesthetic. It's got a Breaking Bad chemistry lab kind of feel to it, and the fit and finish is thoughtful and high quality. I was a little confused how the three pieces on the top of the device go together but after some experimenting and an E-mail to the manufacturer I was able to figure it out. The part that confused me is a rubber gasket that remains on the vessel after you remove the pourer.

USABILITY

Once I rinsed the product off and put the top on I was ready to decant my first bottle of wine. From watching the video I understood how the device was intended to be used. The fact that it aerates an entire bottle all at once makes it a good match for holiday gatherings. On a weeknight when you're having just a glass or two you probably don't want to decant an entire bottle. But when you're serving a few bottles in succession to a group, the Wine Breather's ability to aerate an entire bottle in just a couple of minutes is very useful.

I am not sure why there has been less that great reviews over this product as I absolutely love it. The product was shipped in one single piece over APO address a long ways from Texas; meaning the packaging was well done as it protected the glass over thousands of miles. The carafe itself is handmade glass AND ITS SUPPOSED to have a rustics look/feel to it which I like. The rubber stopper piece looks like it was made for the specific purpose of not allowing the wine to spill. I do not believe the black rubber piece affects the taste of the wine in any way at all. The wine most definetely changes when take through the process twice; even very yourg wines change in a good way. Overall I am happy with the purchase and the design and intended use of this product.

Great product, makes it very quick and easy to decant a wine. Also very easy to return the wine to the bottle without using a funnel. Highly recommend this product.

First, I was introduced to this item from our local wine outlet. They showed us how quickly they could prepare a whole bottle of wine and retain the bottle for pouring. Then I used this item not only on our regular wines, but also on some lower priced wines. It really opened them up and made them drinkable. In some cases, I wasn't able to tell the difference between $7.50 Cab and $60 cab... Love it, easy to use, easy to clean. And with the potential $$ saving in cost of wine, priceless.

I've owned a number of decanters in the past, and I really like this one because it's practical. Lots of decanters have lightweight glass (or crystal) and fancy curves. The end result of that is they are hard to clean and break easily. The menu decanter is thick enough to feel nice and sturdy, and a shape that's easy to clean and dry.

I also love that you can decant the wine back into the bottle for serving. And people always seem to enjoy watching it work :) I first saw this in action at a tasting room in San Luis Opisbo and had to go out and get one for myself.

Great decanter, I'd highly recommend it over all the fancier looking options.

This is a great decanter, especially for double aeration. However, I did also have the rubber around the metal base slip on and off which is disappointing considering the price. It doesn't really effect how it works but just the point that it shouldn't do that.
