I previously reviewed other Antoni Barcelona products including those shown to the right. You may remember a recent blog post reviewing the Antoni Barcelona Mouth Blown Glasses.
I have been really impressed with the quality of each item in the Antoni Barcelona line, and this Wine Decanter is certainly no exception to that. When i saw that this new product was available, I knew it had to be part of the "family".
** Why I like this line of products **
I'm just a regular girl, and while I like nice things as most people do, I largely feel out of place in very fancy restaurants. I am polite and pleasant, but I don't know true "proper etiquette" and I always feel that the people who work in fancy places can sense that immediately, the way dogs can sense fear, and it shows in the interactions on-site. Being able to elevate the home experience of a fine glass of wine, maybe even one I picked after visiting the vineyard, is valuable to me. I don't need to feel awkward in an upscale establishment and pay too much for a stingy pour of a nice wine when I can decant into this and pour into my favorite goblets (see above) and enjoy in the comfort of my home where I fit in. ;-)
** Product Packaging **
It can be scary thinking of glass items shipping from who knows where and being tossed around in a large truck. Especially is that the case with a glass item like this which feels more delicate and special even though it is high quality. Antoni Barcelona handles this well by excellent nesting of the products in tissue paper, custom styrofoam, and box within the shipping box. In fact, I kept these boxes in the event that I move in the future, I know my special glasses will be safe and secure within.
**Who would love this **
Wine lovers - dur..
Newly weds for engagement gifts, wedding shower gifts...
Someone who loves flowers... Just saying, it would make a very special vase as well!
I purchased this wine decanter at a discount for review purposes.

I was recently privileged to have been sent to review a set of gorgeous hand painted wine glasses.
I reviewed these on Amazon and wanted to share my thoughts here on the blog!
These glasses are absolutely gorgeous!!!!!
They are a largeeee glass.. Mine measure about 11 inches tall. At first it may be surprising, but when you think about it, it makes perfect sense. It gives you plenty of room to swirl your wine, to enjoy the full aroma and enhance the taste. Other glasses are too small and you would spill if you tried to swirl the wine, or the shape is just not really conducive to it.
The stem is long and elegant and the shape of the glass enables it to rest perfectly in your palm.
It's special to have something hand made. That these are mouth blown glasses makes them very neat. If you have never watched someone creating something out of glass, I recommend taking the time to. Try checking out a youtube video on it! It is fascinating and incredible!! On top of being mouth-blown glass, these glasses are also hand painted. Each glass is a unique work of art.
These glasses make drinking wine feel like such a special occasion.
They would make an excellent gift for any wine lover, for an engagement, wedding, or anniversary present, an art lover.. so many options!
Totally gorgeous. I am so grateful to have received this product for free to test and honestly review based on my opinions and personal experience with the glasses.
Oh! almost forgot, these came excellently packaged with a lot of care and bubble wrap and tissue to keep them safe and sound on their travels.
I am sharing the photos from the Amazon page because it is hard to capture the beauty of these glasses and I think they do a better job than I can at the moment, although I think it is hard for any photo to really do them justice.
They are definitely a treasure and a great conversation piece, guaranteed!!!
