The ancient Greeks knew about the attributes of gems and infused their wine with amethysts to improve its taste. Amethyst means “the non-intoxicable” in classical Greek. Selected wineries and professional sommeliers have rediscovered this ancient tradition and achieved amazing results. Our VINO Gemstone Vial, filled with precious amethyst and clear quartz, softens the wine's natural acids (tannins), making it taste smoother, while maintaining its fruity aroma.The VINO Gemstone Vial with its curved surface is wonderfully complemented by our uniquely shaped wine decanter. Handcrafted in Europe, it is an exquisite masterpiece.
