Wine is much more than a beverage to be enjoyedit's an experience that has a culture all its own. The Art of Decanting explores these rituals, tracing the evolution of wine presentation and its rich lore. Author Sandra Jordan, of Sonoma's acclaimed Jordan wines, unearths unusual practices in wine history and sifts through centuries of rituals and accoutrements such as wine furniture, vessels, corks, corkscrews, glassware, and specifically decanters, to demystify their modern interpretations and explain how they are properly used today. With a handy entertaining guide that brings all the information into a practical light, The Art of Decanting and a bottle of wine will transform the most casual of gatherings into an evening to remember.
