Amethysts enjoy a long association with Dionysus, the God of Wine. The ancient Greeks were known to create drinking vessels from amethysts. The word “amethyst” means “not intoxicated” (from Greek a- “not” + methystos “intoxicated”). Over the past few years some wineries and professional sommeliers have rediscovered the tradition of enhancing wine with amethysts and have achieved amazing results. Today, however, amethysts are no longer placed directly into the wine. With this special blend we bring this tradition to the next level. The bell of the VINO Vial, with its distinctive twisted fluting, encloses several amethysts making infusing wine with gemstone energy so much more hygienic. The effect on wine is truly stunning. The tannins are usually perceived to be smoother and more pleasurable. VINO gives even great wines a very special 'tuning.'
The VitaJuwel VINO Gem-Water Vial should ONLY be washed by hand with warm, soapy water. NEVER place it in the dishwasher or freezer. The most elegant way to use your VINO Vial is with the Wine Decanter (sold separately). Both should be cleaned by hand in warm, soapy water.
VitaJuwel Vials are designed by Ewald Eisen and VitaJuwel in the German Alps and hand-blown in the Czech Republic.
Wine lovers, you will delight in experimenting with the Gem-Water VINO Gemstone Vial by VitaJuwel. Just as VitaJuwel Gem-Water Bottles and Vials use gemstone crystals to create a 'smoothing' affect on water's mouth-feel by raising the pH and oxygen content, the VINO Vial dramatically transforms wine—enhancing it's natural characteristics but reducing the harshness people sometimes experience. Trying is believing! It's especially effective on a young red with a lot of tannic 'bite.' It's been said to almost providing a 'window' into how a wine will develop over time. The Gem-Water VINO Gemstone Vial by VitaJuwel does so via its special blend of amethyst gemstones inside the bell of the hand blown vial. For millennia, amethysts have been known to improve wine, but submerging gems in wine has simply been impractical until now. This elegant system is both an effective and hygienic way to carry on an ancient practice. To enhance the experience, we even created a uniquely shaped wine decanter. Handcrafted in Europe, it is an exquisite masterpiece. Fill it with a bottle of wine, insert the Gem-Water VINO Gemstone Vial by VitaJuwel, wait 7-10 minutes, and pour yourself and your friends a glass. The pair make a great addition to your collection of wine accessories and a fantastically creative gift for your fellow wine enthusiasts. The Gem-Water VINO Gemstone Vial and Wine Decanter are sold separately.
