      Description

      Red wines, especially younger ones, need to be in contact with oxygen in order to develop their optimum bouquet. By pouring a wine into a big bellied decanter an hour or two before it is drunk, it allows maximum contact area between the wine and oxygen, allowing the wine to develop, or in essence, age. Duck decanters have their origin in the earliest wine jugs used in ancient times. Translated into a modern, attractive design, Eisch's Duck Decanter with a beautiful red handle combines traditional wine culture with today's knowledge of wine handling.

      Riedel Crystal was started in 1756 by Johann Christoph Riedel, a Bohemian who sold glassware across Europe. Now in its tenth generation, Riedel is known across the world for creating the most perfect wine and spirits lead crystal. Based on years of research, this glassware is shaped to ampilfy or turn down a wine's good and bad points.

      Central Coast

      View all wine

      The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of the state's wine. The sprawling district covers most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara from the coast inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley. Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types, and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including Monterey, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Cruz Mountains.

      Just about every major international grape variety is planted within this vast AVA, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. A significant proportion of the region’s produce is generic, inexpensive bulk wine, but the Central Coast is also home to many small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as everything in between.

      Other Red Blends

      View all wine

      With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
