Whether you are having wine for a party you are throwing or enjoying a quiet evening alone, sometimes you will need to filter the wine from the bottle into a decanter. This filtering may be done for several reasons. The wine may have significant sediment, the wine may need to open up and "breathe" or there may be some broken cork in the wine. Wine filters can be bought, but there's a cheaper and easier way.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- A bottle of wine
- Small coffee filter
- Decanter (or large pitcher)
Open the bottle of wine you wish to filter.
Touch the tips of your index finger and thumb together to make a circle.
Press the centre off the coffee filter through the top of your two fingers so the filter forms a cup.
Place your homemade filter over your decanter or pitcher and slowly begin to pour the wine.
Tips and warnings
- Be sure to pour slowly. The coffee filter will take time but is a proven method used in some fine restaurants.
