Should I Customize My Wine Labels?

I remember growing up as an Italian American my father and uncles would exchange their homemade wine in empty bottles of Hennessey, Courvoisier or any other empty glass bottle that they could get their hands on.

The traditional process of wine aeration (letting a wine breathe) involves the use of a crystal wine decanter or carafe in which the sediment in the bottle gets removed and the aroma, or nose, opens up, enhancing the wine-drinking experience.

But if you are like me (prone to the need for instant gratification), an hour or two can seem like an eternity when you can’t wait to taste that bottle of fine wine you just acquired.

Bodum Double Wall Glasses

Even before my career in wine, coffee and tea started, one of my favorite brands was Bodum. I love the innovative designs, the look, the feel and the unique “European-ness” of all of their products.

I write at length (some might say ad nauseam) about form following function and its importance in crystal wine glasses, coffee makers, crystal decanters, cookware–essentially anything related to fine consumables. That’s why I was so intrigued when I discovered Bodum double wall glasses.
