Vinturi Wine Aerator

vinturi_wine_aerator.jpgWe don't cover a lot of wine accessories here, leaving that to our compatriots over at Cheap Fun Wines, but we saw this gadget and just had to write about it. You always hear people talking about letting wine breathe, to improve the flavor and open up the bouquet. But seriously, who has time for all that? That's why we like the Vinturi wine aerator, which is basically scuba gear for your wine. Just put it over the glass, pour the wine through, and it pumps the air right in. No muss, no fuss, no waiting. We likes.

Simply hold the aerator oven a glass or decanter and pour the wine through. The Vinturi draws in and mixes the proper amount of air for the right amount of time, allowing your wine to breathe instantly. You?ll notice a better bouquet, enhanced flavors and smoother finish. It?s that fast and simple. The Vinturi is made in the USA of FDA approved plastic and is dishwasher safe. It comes in a beautiful gift box and includes a stand and travel pouch.

We first tried this at several wineries in Sonoma county on a visit there last February. It does an absolutely amazing job on heavy reds, like Zin, Syrah, and Cab, and a decent job on some lighter wines like Pinot Noir. Obviously not for lighter reds. For those of us who don't have the time or interest in decanting and WAITING, the vinture is simply great.

Try a good red without the vinture, then try it after aerating with Vinture. The difference can be amazing. Tannins are softened, flavors are enhanced.

We love our Vinturi, and our wine friends do, too.

As a wine accessory, I can't say it's a necessity or that you'll like every wine more after you use it. But it looks great, is very unique, is fun to play with, is a great conversation piece and with a price tag under $40, I think it's a great gift for a wine lover who already has all of the essentials.

The problem I see with this is that wines need different amounts of time to properly aerate. The wine I'm drinking this evening needed nearly three hours (it will easily age close to two decades), whereas the wine I had on Friday is nearly ready to drink now, and would be ruined by a tool like this due to the slight carbonation it has. I'm all for gadgets, but sometimes the old way is the best way.

My Dad is a huge red wine drinker so I decided to get him a Vinturi for Christmas this year. He really likes it and says it works pretty well, just like decanting wine.
