Technical device for the very slow decanting or pouring wine with the purpose, not that depot disturbing. The bottle is clamped into the machine with the opening diagonally upwards and the bottle neck is slowly and continuously moved downwards using a hand crank until it flows out.

When the first traces become visible, the pouring is stopped.

Other decanting aids and devices are Decantus. Venturi. Versovino and wine cradle,
