Our wine typically goes straight from bottle to glass to mouth; we don't take the #2 Carafe step.
We recognize, however, that this step is a nice no-label addition to a lovely, full table setting.
This carafe from Koo de Kir includes a suprising juxtaposition of a round, wood stopper, rather than an expected cylindrical glass one.
And...it's only $39.50.
How many of you use wine carafes? Can you link us to some great ones out there?
