Vine Like Wine

Whether or not decanters can improve the taste of wine is controversial amongst wine experts however none can debate the aesthetic value of presenting wine in an elegantly designed vessel. Most carafes have a bulbous bottom and a slender top but French artist Etienne Menueau’s Strange Decanters challenge that notion taking inspiration from the roots of the grape vine. Some of the decanters look as if they just sprouted legs and are about to run away, while other’s resemble a model of the circulatory system.

Interesting, since wine is often allegorically associated with blood.

    This wouldn’t oxygenate the wine at all. It’s really pretty, but useless as a decanter.

    The design is nice, fairly elegant and pretty, I could act high brow and say that it would simply be a worthless decanter, but the author has acknowledged that fact… The design is very unique although I would be leery about breaking it day in and day out just because it looks so bloody delicate
