It’s time to raise a glass—but only if it’s filled with wine that’s been properly aerated beforehand. One of the easiest way to achieve that at home is with a good decanter. There’s a classic, wide-bottom silhouette that many first think of when it comes to these pieces, but not all follow that blueprint. Some are made of crystal or glass that’s been molded into more dynamic shapes or are carved with intricate designs. No matter what they look like, though, all should first and foremost open up the wine and separate it from any sediment. Here, seven of our favorites that tick all the boxes.
