I have one....I only use it on wines that need to breathe a bit.

I'm not even really sure what they do. I'm more of a beer girl anyway.

I have tried the same wine both ways, and I never notice a difference either way. I think some people are more picky about wines, but my palate isn't nearly sophisticated enough to discern a difference. I'm not fancy.

I've wanted one forever! Actually, yesterday I was at Ikea and noticed they had one, but I didn't feel like I knew enough about the brands to purchase. Hearing everyone's comments has convinced me I definitely need one, though!

I don't use one either. But if I did I would probably get a classy one for only use at my parties.

No I don't use one. Some of them look pretty but I'd really spend the $ on something else.

you forgot the "I don't have one because I don't drink wine" option

Nope, as long as the wine comes in a bottle, I'm fine.

No, but I should get one...I like the looks of them!

tls, it really does. We actually sometimes test it out. Take one glass with Vinturi, one without. There's a noticeable difference... and our nightly wines are rarely more than $12 (btw, not a spokesman for vinturi, although I feel like it!) ;)

no i don't have one, but i think that they are kind of cook and if/when i get a bigger place, and have $$ i might have to get one. think about how fun it would be to have a party and use it.

If the vinturi works on every day wine I might give it a try. I just always felt silly at the idea of decanting the very regular wine I'm going to have after work.

Just removed three of them from my bar. They have been sitting there for.....ever. Don't even remember where or when we got them. I put them out in the garage to go to the goodwill but my daughter says she wants them.

My husband and I have one, but we've never used it, ha! Come to think of it, I don't really like wine.

(IE I'll open a bottle of wine and drink it myself over a week or so)

I got a really pretty one for my wedding but realized that I rarely drink wine in the way that requires decanting so I fill it with water and keep it in the fridge so I always have cold water on hand and get to use my decanter more often!

I really want one!

I have the Vinturi. Our red wine tastes ten times better after its been through it. (even the inexpensive every night wines) Try it.

I don't have one, because I don't see the need to use one, seeing as how I don't really buy wines that are fancy enough to need decanting. I just don't really see the point.
