The Vinturi Wine Aerator is an invaluable asset for softening and enhancing the flavors of wine. Mixing just the right amount of air with your wine at the precise moments, this see-through aerator allows your reds to breathe instantly. If you own one yourself, you’re already aware of its value! Based on customer comments that we have received regarding the Vinturi Aerator, we’ve expanded our product offering with a deluxe gift set, perfect for the holiday season.

The deluxe set includes:

  • A Vinturi Red Wine Aerator
  • A Beautiful stand to hold the Vinturi above your glass
  • A drip catcher screen
  • A travel pouch

Vinturi Red Wine Aerator Brush

Beyond the gift set we also offer a cleaning brush, designed just for the Vinturi red wine aerator. It slides easily into the Vinturi to scrub at the hard-to-reach areas, leaving a spotless aerator for the next use.

We’ve also received inquiries about using the Vinturi with an old wine that throws a sediment. A great solution to this is our aerating funnel with removable screen. Place the funnel over the Vinturi as your pour your wine. The screen in the funnel will catch all of the sediment, and you’ll have clear, perfectly aerated wine in your glass. The funnel also controls the flow of wine into the Vinturi, so you won’t have problems with overflow.

Of course, the Vinturi Red Wine Aerator works perfectly on its own, these helpful tips and tools only complement it, to make it even better!

The Difference Between Our Red and White Vinturis

White Vinturi Wine Aerator

We recently launched the exciting new white wine Vinturi on our site. The red Vinturis have been immensely popular, (receiving over 200 rave customer reviews) . People love the sleek design, ease-of-use and most importantly, the incredible results it can have on wine’s flavor and aroma. It seemed only natural to offer a white version. So, why do you need a different aerator for white wines?

It’s true that many white wines do not need aeration. But young, full-bodied whites like Viognier or old, luscious whites like white Burgundy, can greatly benefit. A white with exotic aromas needs a delicate touch of air that can make those aromas really sing. The white Vinturi aerator is specifically engineered with smaller, more delicate pores that are gentle on a white’s unique composition.  The wine travels through the Vinturi faster so that the wine receives just enough aeration, without being broken down.

Respirer Wine Aerator Allure Aerating Decanter

An aerator and a decanter both serve a similar purpose which is to expand the surface area of wine, which allows the air to mingle with it. Whether placing the wine in a larger vessel (decanter) or forcing air to be circulated throughout it (aerator), the end result is a wine with an expanded aromatic profile and/or softer tannins.  So, what’s the difference?

Vinturi Wine AeratorThough the benefits of decanting are immeasurable, some people hesitate to invest in a decanter. Do I really need it? Does it make much of a difference? You may wonder. You may already be aware of the benefits of decanting including softer tannins, a broader bouquet, or sediment removal. But maybe you’d like to see for yourself?

Our new Vinturi Wine Aerator is a great way to discover the use of aeration before purchasing a decanter. This fun, new contraption is simply used by holding it over a glass and pouring your wine through. It quickly aerates and opens up the wine while making a fun little gurgling noise that is quite satisfying. It also won’t break the bank at $39.95. Such a great find is a wonderful way to begin experiencing your favorite reds anew and even discovering wines you thought were too aggressive until they met the Vinturi.

Although the Vinturi is a great tool, it doesn’t replace the benefits of having a beautiful decanter to aerate a full bottle of wine. It is however, a great first step towards understanding and enjoying the method of aerating wine before purchasing a decanter. Looking for new ways to understand and experiment with wine is the best way to really appreciate it to its fullest. The Vinturi is one of my favorites products and is a fun addition to any wine bar.
