The ‘RainMan' Carafe

By: Marissa Brassfield - Published: Nov 19, 2008 • References: &
This ‘RainMan’ decanter by Matilda Sundén Ringnér provides a curious way to aerate your wine. Its spout is perforated just like the garden-variety tin watering cans sold at home and garden stores.

Ringnér designed the ‘RainMan’ decanter as a playful alternative to wine’s traditional journey from bottle to glass. Typical carafes let wine flow in a solid, fluid stream; the ‘RainMan’ decanter, however, breaks this mold entirely.

As a drinker, I’d be curious to see how the wine’s flavor is affected when it’s aerated in this fashion. Would wine open up more quickly with the 'RainMan' decanter, or would it become stale? Stats for Watering Can Decanters Trending: Older & Mild
