Faceted Crystal Champagne Glass set of 2

Crystal Faceted Champagne Flute Set – $27.95

Crystal stemware is luxurious and elegant on your table. Some crystal glass contains lead, which strengthens the glass while allowing it to remain thin, enhancing the drinking experience. The Crystal Faceted Champagne Flute Set shown above is lead free, retaining the strength and aerating porosity. Because the crystal is thin, it catches the light in a lovely way that aids in viewing the champagne. Splitting off from a star-shaped triagonal sides make this polyfaceted crystal champagne flute uncommonly captivating. With each face sending prismatic light in splintered rays through your sparkling wine, the Crystal Faceted Champagne Flute itself rounds out smoothly as it reaches the rim for the perfect sip.


Red wine glasses are typically wider, shorter and broader across the rim.

The broad rim is for breathing in the wine; tasting the wine begins with the first impressions gained from smelling the unique bouquet. The wide bowl exposes a maximum amount of the wine to the air for aeration. It may appear your sommolier is trying to give you as little wine as possible, but truthfully he or she is giving the wine room to breath, giving you room to swirl and experience the wine with your eyes and nose before your taste buds.

For older white wines, the glass will be taller to deliver the wine to the back of the tongue to appreciate the bolder flavors, while glasses for younger whites will be broader to help deliver the wine to the front and sides of the tongue, where the sweetness can be tasted.2

Aerate your wine

Aerating is an important step in opening up any almost wine and allowing it to breath. Aerating a wine exposes the wine to oxygen, revealing the rich complexities and maximizing the flavor, aroma and smoothness of your favorite wines.

GiftedGrape.com carries a number of different styles of wine aerators.

We have aerators that coordinate with wine decanters to aerate an entire bottle of wine, to models that seat inside the wine bottle neck and aerate each serving of wine as you pour. We even have aerating wine glasses, so you can aerate as you mingle and sip!

“I am a first-time customer of GiftedGrape. Web site was easy to navigate; found items I sought readily. Checkout process was quick and delivery made earlier than expected. Very satisfying experience.” – Ross C


Decanting your wines

Decanting your wines can be beneficial in almost every situation, from casual sipping to socializing with friends. Decanting wines makes a wonderful presentation to your guests, while helping aerate the wine and removing sediment with careful pouring. Red wines in particular benefit from being decanted, as exposing the wine to oxygen softens the harsh tannins that develop during aging. In the case of screw top wines, decanting can also help remove gases that would normally escape through a more porous cork.

We have many types of decanters. Choose a stunning crystal decanter that feels lighter than air, or the traditional wine carafe used at many restaurants. We also carry an unusual orbital decanter that collects sediment, and an oval decanter that will highlight the color of your red wines beautifully.

The Rabbit Wine and Champagne Sealer will also help seal in champagne bubbles. You might want to look into the Private Preserve Wine Preserver which protects your wine with a layer of inert gas.

From pump-type wine preservers that remove the air with a few hand pumps to electric preservers that remove air with the touch of a button, we have the solution that you will love to enjoy your wine day after day!
