AMETHYST • CLEAR QUARTZ
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”).
In the recent past, some wineries and professional sommeliers rediscovered the tradition to enhance wine with amethysts and achieved amazing results. But nowadays, amethysts are no longer placed directly into the wine.
With this gem-blend we bring this tradition to the next level. Vino features a twisted surface and as the amethysts are enclosed in the vial, it makes infusing wine 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.'
