The Wine Breather Series by Norm Architects for MENU AS makes it easy to serve aerated, ready to drink wine directly from the original bottle, enabling the bottle to tell its personal story. The secret is found in the unique wine breather invented by wine expert Peter Ørsig.
The actual aeration process is untraditional and worth seeing, so your guests will probably enjoy witnessing the wine breather in action. Place the bottle on the table and attach the carafe to the bottleneck. Then, carefully turn the bottle over and allow the wine to flow into the carafe. The wine breather spreads the wine so that it splashes through the neck of the carafe and flows down its sides, providing the maximum possible surface area.
Turn over, aerate and serve. The wine can be served in the stylish carafe, but if you prefer to have the original bottle on the table, just turn the carafe over again and the wine flows back into the bottle! The aeration takes less than 2 minutes, during which time the wine develops just as much as it would have after many months in the bottle. This provides a better taste experience and, as an added bonus, you are able to enjoy the spectacular aeration process and still serve the wine in its original bottle.
