The Mission of Decant This

My mission is to help everyone feel the way that I do: That life is good, and wine can be an integral part of a good life—and a source of comfort and joy rather than consternation and angst. This site is intended to allow you to dip your toes or delve deeply into the wondrous world of wine, filled with engaging people and entrancing places. And some seriously tasty fermented grape juice.
