A really useful holiday suggestion for every oenophile

Marcus' recent article on dryer-resistant decanter inspired me on writing about the following item. As you can see, in his article, Marcus described a dilemma of certain type drying stands not allowing proper draining of curvier decanters.

After some Googling, I found this product, Oenophilia Fusion 16-Glass Stemware Rack, available at Amazon for $33 with free shipping.

How cool is this dryer rack? For spending merely 33 bucks, not only you will now be able to dry a decanter properly, but also able to dry up to 16 normal size glasses at the same time. One more advantage of this rack over others is that the legs can be folded flat for easy storage.

(OK. OK. If you use the Riedel Sommelier or the “O” series glasses, then this rack won’t work for you. However, if you plan to use these types of glasses, then you are into another drinking league anyway)

So there you have it, please add this useful tool onto your holiday wish list.

Thanks for the tip. I've been searching for a good stemware drying rack for a while, and this one looks like it might fit the bill for my small studio apt.

Nice find! My wife hates my glasses/decanters everywhere.

This tool is especially handy for New Yorker like us where space is at the premium.

Glad you like it. It is still not too late to add it to your Christmas wish list.
