Decanting wine is more than just for show, of course, but the show itself is something to consider when choosing the ideal vessel. Take it from Ariel Arce, owner of Niche Niche, Air’s Champagne Parlor, and Tokyo Record Bar in New York City, a powerhouse of New York’s wine scene. “I like something that is functional and generally beautiful glass––something I can leave on a table that doesn’t take up too much room but still allows the wine to aerate.” she says. There’s something ethereal about an eye-catching, sculptural piece perched atop a table in one of her moody, romantic establishments, bringing the contents of your bottle to life. With the right decanter, it’s easy to emulate this experience at home.
