gwino / wine snifter


gwino is a wine snifter that sways like reeds in the wind. The movement enriches the wine with air - decanting the wine. This way the process of moving the glass and letting the wine breath becomes part of the pleasure. Especially on receptions gwino invites guests to join and wonder from group to group. The glass can easily be picked up, taken away and placed on any reed stem where gwino automatically will set the wine in motion. gwino stands safely on its heavy base. The glass is fixed by a magnet at the top of the stem whose spring steel shaft enables the slight swinging motion.
