Spanish "Schöpfdegen" or scoop for the sherry. A silver cup is attached to a long whalebone handle. With this cup the pile layer in the barrel is pierced and sherry is scooped from it. The "Venenciador" then pours the wine into the Catavino (sherry glass) in a high arc. This can be done by absolute professionals from a much greater distance than shown in the picture. In the city of Sanlúcar de Barrameda the stem is made of bamboo and the manzanilla glass is called Caña there. Through the long jet the wine comes into intensive oxygen contact and unfolds its full aroma.
