How wide is the opening? Looking at ball stoppers and want to make sure they do not fall into the neck. Have read that it is very difficult to remove the ball if it falls into the neck. Want to make sure the ball seals it but sits on top.

BEST ANSWER:Hello Joann, The opening is 3" The glass ball stopper fits nicely and easy to remove.
This is truly an effective aerating design. My only complaint is that it becomes very awkward to pour the last of the wine from it. I wouldn't try to do that when serving guests. When you're down to the last glass of wine in the decanter, I'd suggest you pour it over the sink. The other option is to just add more of the same wine to bring it up to an easy pour level.
I love this decanter! It is so pretty & very easy to use. I love how it swirls when you pour the wine! And yes it makes a difference in how the wine tastes, we did a taste test! I also bought the cleaning kit & use the decanter brush which works great with this product!
I researched decanters and after reading the reviews on this one - and because it was quite nice looking - settled on this one. HIGHLY recommend getting the drying stand, it helps to eliminate unsightly water marks after washing. This decanter does what it is suppose to do.
I bought this as a gift for a loved one who makes his own wine, and he loves it! Not only is it beautiful in presentation, but the inner spiral really does help aerate the wine. His vintages were good before, but served out of this they're heaven!
This was a gift to one of our wine connoisseur friends. We all enjoyed it over the holidays and it did allow our wine to breath and improved the taste. As with any decanter, it is tricky to clean, but it was easier than some others we used. Overall very good value.
It looked good in the catalog and performs perfectly in reality. There is action in every pour, even when first decanting! A couple of young reds responded quite well. It's a nice addition to the way we entertain, even if its just the two of us.
I have used this for every bottle of wine I have decanted recently and I just love it. The first time I saw this used was in a restaurant and I just loved how easy it was (and fun) to slosh the air into the wine.
This is my second order for this decanter - the first one cracked with just a small bump by a wine glass. Significant change in wine taste after only about 15 mins. Difficult to completely empty - but satisfy that by adding more wine. Careful with the drips if using over a tablecloth.
We have had several broad-based decanters and ordered this one only because it was readily available. What a pleasant surprise. The item is smaller and sturdier than ones we've had previously and much, much easier to handle. Didn't notice any difference in its aeration capability from the broader ones. We are very pleased with this item.
I am very disappointed with this product. The description sounded great and the reviews backed it up but it is not at all worthy of either one. It is a standard decanter and the appearance or look is extremely miss advertised. I am guessing that the product I received is a faulty one after reading all the reviews. I will be buying my next one in a store where I can see exactly what I am getting.
The product looks nice. Regrettably it does not work well; it is virtually impossible to pour all of the wine from this decanter without spilling ... when there is perhaps half a glass left in the vessel, you have to turn it upside down and hope the wine falls in your glass!
There appears to actually be 1/2 of an inch of ripples "INSIDE" the decanter. The outside is wonderfully rippled, has a great tactile sensation, but saying the inside is "rippled" to help aerate the wine is like saying Barack is a great president 'cause he used to be a community organizer.Do not waste money on this unless you like things with pretty outsides and misleading insides....
