Ravenscroft Crystal Vintner's Decanter

Ravenscroft Crystal Vintner’s Decanter

The Ravenscroft Crystal Vintner’s Choice Decanter is an elegant, yet traditionally designed decanter. The shape of the neck, as it widens out, provides excellent aeration and the traditional wide shaped bottom, will prevent spillage. This is one of the most popular produced by Ravenscroft and is handmade in Europe from lead-free crystal. The stopper makes an attractive, yet functional addition. While the design is traditional, one user felt that the addition of the stopper provided a more contemporary touch. Customers love the decanter for its beauty as well as its excellent decanting and aeration abilities. Ultimately, it is another elegant piece of handmade crystal from Ravenscroft which will add a touch of elegance to any setting.

 

Features of the Ravenscroft Vintner’s Choice

The Ravenscroft Decanter makes an excellent choice as gift for someone who appreciates the subtleties of fine wine. The shape ensures its functionality while the design is traditionally elegant. In terms of actual decanting, the shape allows for easy pouring from the wine bottle, into the decanter. Wine will flow down the sides, all the way around the decanter, aerating it beautifully.

Ravenscroft Crystal Ultra Magnum Decanter Review

January 13, 2016 0 Comments

The Ravenscroft Crystal Ultra Magnum Decanter is a practical wine decanter that is able to hold a magnum of wine or alternatively, three regular sized bottles. It is the largest of the Ravenscroft decanters and suitable for occasions where a decanter for more than a small intimate group is required. In addition to its size, it also features a low neck and a beveled opening.

It also has a wide bottom that is well weighted so that aeration of a large volume of wine is possible while sediment can comfortably rest on the bottom. The shape is pleasing and complemented by the use of quality lead free crystal, resulting in an attractive piece of glassware to grace a dinner table.

Like other quality wine decanters, the Ravenscroft decanter makes an excellent gift for anyone who enjoys entertaining while enjoying quality wine. Even though its size is larger than a regular decanter, customers appreciated the value and quality of the wine decanter and found it to be a welcome addition to their dinner tables.

Features of the Ravenscroft Decanter

Design – a Ravenscroft decanter suitable for holding a magnum of wine
Suitable For – anyone who requires an attractive, quality wine decanter suitable for a larger gathering.

Materials – lead free crystal that is of good quality, attractive and durable.
Cleaning – it is recommended that the decanter be hand washed and it is worth noting that customers found cleaning beads to be effective in providing a thorough clean.
