Over twenty prototypes of the Water / Wine carafe were created during the design process to test the flow of wine and obtain the maximum aeration. This makes it obvious how clever the carafe is, which can be used for water or wine equally.
Benjamin Hubert achieved in creating a carafe, which was functional and appealing at the same time: The optimized decanting process lets the wine “rain” into the caade in order to let in breathe as much as possible, already while it is pourec – the wine gets 8 times more air with the water & wine carafe by Menu, than remaining in the wine bottle. This doesn’t only upgrade the taste, but it also looks nobler. Finally, the carafe is used to serve its content directly into the glass.
The W/W carafe by Menu is also suitable for water, juices and other drinks, since the colander also keeps ice cubes or fruit pieces from falling into the glass.
Menu produces the Water / Wine carafe out of mouth-blown glass, silicone and stainless steel. There are water / wine glasses available, suiting the carafe, which are stackable with the carafe to be stored or transported easily.Also in our blog:
