Please note: The Hoggit Decanter is a handmade item created in the UK by the fine craftsmen at Dartington Crystal. Each stopper is specifically made and adjusted to fit each decanter. This is done by hand using a special tool on both the stopper edges and inside the neck of the decanter. This leaves a translucent ring around the inside of the neck of the decanter which speaks to the hand making process and care that goes into making the stoppers fit securely in each and every decanter.

Storing & Preserving Wine
A true wine enthusiast knows that proper preservation technique is tantamount to enjoying a fuller, more fulfilling wine taste. A wine patron will often take greater steps to preserve a more expensive bottle. However, taking the right precautions can make a $10 bottle of wine taste like $30. Adhering to a few tricks can make for better flavor and aroma of your wine.
  • Temperature maintenance is the first step in allowing your bottle to mature to its full potential. Most homes maintain a temperature of 70 degrees with a humidity of roughly 20-30%. Optimal wine storage temperatures call for 55-58 degrees with about 55-75% humidity. To replicate these ideal conditions, a proper cellar or wine refrigerator is recommended.
  • Keep your wine out of sunlight. UV rays are harmful to wine and give it an unpleasant cardboard taste and smell.
  • Keep your wine away from cupboards, cabinets and home refrigerators. The opening and shutting of cabinets and doors cause vibrations that disturb your wine and affect the taste.
  • Store bottles on their sides to keep their corks moist. (When a cork dries, it allows air in that will spoil your wine.) When using a rack, keep your white wine lower on the rack, as heat rises and red wine fairs better in higher temperatures.
  • For storing your wine in the short term, duplicate the conditions of longer-term preservation as best you can.
