Enjoying a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County or a bold Shiraz made in the Barossa Valley requires more than just a large goblet wine glass. To fully enjoy the flavors, tannins and aromas, wine drinkers must aerate these varietals, along with many others like Barolo, GSMs and Syrah. With dozens of examples and 5 PRO Trends, the Decanter Trend Report will give users a glance at the bevy of innovative glassware that entices "winos" everywhere.
Glassware is a lucrative industry because it's so broad and has so much variety. Not long ago, this wasn't the case for decanters. Most were made in the traditional style, leaving out creativity and eccentric design altogether. However, more recently we have tracked trends that highlight innovative and creatively unique designs in decanter glassware. One example of this is our Dinervolution PRO Trend, which looks at how restaurants are getting more creative with table presentation and glassware, including oddly shaped decanters.
