  • Modeled after a musical horn’s coiled shape, the Horn decanter is a homage to the RIEDEL family’s central European heritage in Austria and Bohemia. The Horn decanter was inspired by the iconic insignia that symbolizes the Austrian Post’s mail delivery system. Like many other coiled decanters by RIEDEL, the Horn decanter “double-decants” wine, a technology developed by RIEDEL to accelerate the aeration of wine by the creation of a vacuum within the vessel.

    Requiring three master glassblowers’ to create this unique piece, the Horn features two openings on either end, the larger of which is to be used for both receiving and pouring wine. The decanter’s clear crystal color is accented by a large regal golden yellow stripe outlined by two black lines following the contours of its curved silhouette.

    This decanter is designed for a single bottle of wine.

    This pack contains a single piece.

    This product is handmade. Please handwash only.

    RIEDEL recommends: Use bottle cleaners to remove stains from the decanter.

    Why Use a Decanter?

    There are two reasons why we decant wines:

    1.) Decant an older wine to separate it from its sediment.

    2.) Decant a younger wine to increase aeration, revealing more complexity, and opening up aromas and flavors.

    On the palate, decanted wine expresses higher levels of fruit in red wines and tends to integrate and smooth out tannins.

    A decanter is a must-have for wine enthusiasts.
