Breathable Wine Glasses

Everyone knows that red wine needs to be left to breathe and it sometimes takes quite a while for wine to reach its peak levels of oxygenation…which is not ideal if you have a picnic party in full swing and simply want to get on with toasting your winning horses!

The solution? Just 2-4 minutes in the Breathable Glass will be equivalent to 1-2 hours in a normal wine glass!

These ingenious wine glasses have undergone a special oxygenising treatment enabling the glass to aerate your wine far more quickly than a normal glass. So now you can pour wine straight from a recently-opened bottle and will be perfectly oxygenated in just a few minutes.

Ideal for wine buffs!
