If you are the “wine person” in your family or circle of friends, chances are, at some point, someone gifted you a decanter. It may be a fancy lead-crystal one such as those made by Riedel or Waterford, and it may be in the shape of a duck, swan, snake, or escargot (oh yes, those exist, as do many more!).
