Vinturi fizzes your wine to fineness fast
Be it a gift for yourself or for an upcoming celebration, the Vinturi Wine Aerator attempts to bypass cellar aging, decanting, “breathing” - perfect for party throwers and partygoers who seem to leave such details, as decanting wine and allowing it to “breathe” for a half hour or more, to the last minute (we’re not all perfect!). Vinturi accomplishes the process of breathing in seconds.
Hold Vinturi over your glass and pour wine through it (this is a technique called aerating wine). You’ll notice that the wine will make funny fizzing and gurgling noises, the process of aerating wine allows oxygen to soften the wine, letting the fruit and its signature flavors to emerge.
The end result is generally pretty good; however, wine aficionados might know that you’re serving with a hint of trickery. But, hey, after a few glasses of deliciousness I have a feeling that even the skeptics will begin to smile and reveal a tipsy tribute or two to the second, third, and all future bottles.
