Glass Porrón Wine Pitcher

- Fun at a party!
- Great gift idea - recommended by Chef Michael Chiarello
- Size - 1 Liter/34 oz
The porrón wine pitcher is a festive way to serve wine or sangria. Just pick up the porrón and tilt it so that a thin stream of wine pours directly into your mouth! It takes some skill, but it is fun at a party to see how well you and your friends master the technique. Each porrón holds 1 liter, well over a bottle of wine.
Porrones are famous throughout Spain although probably the design originated in Catalunia in place of wine-skins. They were originally made from ceramic, but now are fashioned from hand-blown recycled glass.
Customers have come up with other creative uses, such as using it to serve sangria or margaritas.
From November 2013 Conde Nast Traveler "Stop Buying Fruitcakes. These Culinary Experts Have the Best Foodie Gift Ideas" Chef Michael Chiarello of Bottega, Napa Valley writes: "I'm trying to keep things Spanish this year, so I plan to give handblown glass porrons from La Tienda. They're made of recycled glass and a great gift for anyone who enjoys wine."

"I got one of these to replace one I got years ago that was filed with Spanish rose wine I bought in our local Italian market. I live in San Francisco and occasionally shop the Latino markets and shops along 24th Street and when I wanted to get one, the sales people in all of the stores didn't know what I was referring to. I speak excellent Spanish and was describing what a poron was and nobody knew about this. Then someone told me these are used in Spain exclusively and most of the Spanish speakers here are from Mexico and Central America and have never used a poron. Long story short thanks to La Tienda, I got one. It's great serving your wine in one of these and the great thing, you can have only one glass or two, recork the top and the next day your wine is good to go, highly recommended product"

"This thing was SOOOOOO fun!!! It arrived just before our son did from Seattle, and we did "Spain Night" with some great Spanish wine and tapas, and everyone tried the porrón... it really MADE the night!!! Love it!!!"

"My husband and I received this for Christmas from my in-laws. We practiced with water first so as not to douse our kitchen in wine. It was so much fun to use! We invited my mother and father-in-law back over to experience it with us. The wine that came in the package with it was delicious and the porrón was so much fun to use! I can't wait for the next party we throw as I am sure this will be a fantastic ice breaker."

"I have one the is 1/2 the size of the one I purchased from you. I wish you would carry that size. The reason I bought your was to replace mine. Which I broke the tip of. If you can find the smaller size I would buy one. I have been using it for years as an olive oil pourer. Its perfect as the drizzel comes out just right. Please find the smaller size. Thank you, Marijean"

"We have been looking for a porron pitcher for a party we are having in October. After searching the web, we stumbled upon La Tienda. The pitcher is a great value for the price(we bought 2)and is made from recycled glass. We were amazed at the speed of the delivery- we got our pitchers in 2 days. We will definitely order again from La Tienda. We can't wait to introduce it to our guests."

"If I were Spanish I might say mui bene; however, since gringo is my middle name please permit one observation about this item. It is absolutely wonderful. I bought on many years ago and used faithfully for over 40 years. As fate would have it, an inquisitive friend found a better place when he dropped it on the floor. Bye, bye porron. My sadness comes from not knowing how many folks used it nor how many ounces of wine were consumed. Several hundred persons used it and quit a significant number of liters were transferred from the porron to elsewhere. If one ever needed a novel way of getting the party going this is the perfect answer."
