We don’t want to get technical, but it’s important to know what all of these technical terms mean when dealing with  wine.

Decanting:  A process to remove “mother” (decomposed organic sediment in wine), using a filter.

Breathe:  Old wine need to “breathe”, young wine doesn’t.

Decanter:  A funnel to filter wine.  Its purpose is to enhance wine aromas by interacting wine with air.

Aerator: Same thing as a decanter.
