World’s First Vacuum Decanter

If you don’t know what to get for Christmas, here is an idea. Metrokane claims this is the world’s first vaccum decanter. I have not searched to see if this is true but if you know of others please post a comment. Reviews seem to be mixed on this unit. Main comments are around ease of use. In any case I would be interested in test driving this unit. As for the price, retail is set at $80 but you can find it on Amazon for $60.

Oregon LNG’s route would cut through at least two vineyards, including Montinore Estates’ 230-acre biodynamic vineyard in Washington County, owned by Rudy Marchesi.
