Wine, once released from the bottle, takes a deep breath of fresh air. This exposure to oxygen is essential in opening up the flavor and complexity of your wine. This process of oxygen exposure can take up to an hour. There's no longer a need to wait for your wine to "breathe." The Wine Mermaid glass is specifically designed to help your wine open up. The patented "fin" indentation slices through the wine with every swirl of the glass, causing oxygen to infuse the wine with every break. Experience your wine at its full potential with The Wine Mermaid: the lead free version of the VINO2.
