The Menu Wine Breather Decanter works as a normal decanter but features an integrated lid which allows you to connect the wine bottle with the decanter so it oxygenates.
When the bottle is connected to the top of the carafe, the wine gets in contact with the walls of the decanter in a way that it’s allowed to oxygenate at its maximum. You can repeat this process conversely so that the wine is poured back into the bottle in order to double-aerate your wine and serve it from its original container.

This product is designed to speed up the process of decanting without resting value and taste to the wine. As it doesn’t have a filter, it might be useful the use the candle method the first time the wine is poured, in order to not get the sediment inside the carafe.

To continue using your decanter and get the maximum potential out of it you should keep it clean and dry. As wine decanters and carafes are used to separate the sediments and residues from the actual drinkable wine, it is very common to find stains and dry sediment at the bottom.
Depending on the shape of the decanter cleaning it can result more or less difficult. With the Menu Wine Breather Decanter it will be quite easy, yet we recommend you to use the right tools. Such as brushes and cleaning beans. Read more about “how to clean your carafes and decanters” if you want to know what to do and what not to do when cleaning your decanter.
First of all, use hot water (not boiling): even when the tool is not cleaned right after its use. Pouring hot water into it and leaving overnight will help the stains and deposits to soften.
We recommend you to use restaurant crystal cleaner as a soap. It is an ultra concentrated soap, made from natural ingredients, derived from plants and salt. Contains no solvents, no harsh chemicals and it’s completely biodegradable.
We recommend you to use the cleaner with the right brushes, this will give you the best result. They need to be flexible for those hard to reach places, easy to use and to clean.
If the stain is too adhered to the glass you should use decanter cleaning balls. Pop them in you wine decanter with some water and restaurant crystal cleaner and swirl them around.
We recommend you to dry it using a decanter stand. They need to be very stable and have a protection at the top so the fine glass is not scratched.
Finally, once you have used the stand and it seems like there is still water or condensed water, use the Eich Glas Wine Decanter Dryer. Press the microfiber-cloth into the decanter and twist the drying wand quickly between the palm of your hands until the decanter is clean and dry.
