      Hi Marga :-)

      Your funnel is certainly for wine :-P

      Thanks again Kyra, your country is a fameus wine exporter. But please explain how to use this? To filter the wine before drinking?

      here is one example of use in a decanter; wine is strained as it decanted

      Marga, as shown in TallCakes! A good image is better than a long saying :-))

      Some wine have deposits, and need to be aerated too to enjoy full aromas. This funnel combine both functions, aeration and filtration of the particles, as pouring the bottle in a decanter. Yummmm ;-)
