Product Description

Size: Option 1


Wine Needs to Breathe


Wine that has been allowed to breathe tastes better. As wine breathes, it opens up, and releases its intended aromas and flavours. Traditionally, decanters were used to aerate wine. However, decanting is time consuming, cumbersome, and inconvenient.

Vinturi's patent pending design speeds up this process with ease and convenience. Perfect aeration in the time it takes to pour a glass.

Vinturi Pouring

All the Taste with None of the Wait

Simply hold vinturi over a glass and pour wine through. 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 flavours and smoother finish.

It's that fast. It's that easy.

Pouring in Vinturi


There's A Lot of Engineering In There




Bernoulli's Principle states that as the speed of a moving fluid increases, the pressure within the fluid decreases. This is dictated by the law of conservation of energy.

When wine is poured in the Vinturi, it's internal design creates an increase in the wine's velocity and a decrease in its pressure. This pressure difference creates a vacuum that draws in air which is mixed with wine for perfect aeration.

But What Really Matters is Vinturi's Affect on Wine

BETTER BOUQUET




Sample the nose. You'll appreciate the subtle aromatic differences and the full aroma of the wine. Vinturi allows wine to display its intended aromas.

ENHANCED FLAVOURS



Go ahead, take a sip. Vinturi's wine tastes better. It is more flavourful and has better mouthfeel. It tastes like a richer, more expensive wine. It tastes like it was intended to and is more enjoyable.

SMOOTHER FINISH



Ahhhh. Vinturi's aeration is very effective at softening tannis, which results in a much more pleasant finish. Any bitterness or bad aftertaste is reduced or eliminated.

My dear old mum bought me one of these for my birthday. It's quite pretty and makes a lovely gurgling noise as the wine goes through, but having conducted a blind test (my best beloved being a full on scientist type) I couldn't taste any difference between the Vinturied and not-Vinturied glasses. In the interests of science I felt compelled to try several times over a period of a few weeks with a variety of decent wines (averaging around £8-10 a bottle) in a reasonably well controlled test and never tasted or smelled a difference.

But, as I said, it does make a nice noise and adds to the general gadget-rich ritual that is the guzzling of booze.

My wife bought me this for Christmas two years ago and it has been a fantastic little device.

It’s perfect for my needs as often I fancy red wine on an evening but on a spur of the moment, often I don’t have the foresight to open a bottle and allow it to breathe for an hour or so before drinking.

With the Vinturi you simply pour your red wine through the aerator into your glass (it will make an odd noise but you do get used to it). The result is the taste of wine as if it has been left to breathe; most improved are young red wines that are high in tannins, they really become much smoother and softer having gone through the Vinturi.

My friends and I did a taste test, with wine ‘a’ and wine ‘b’, the wine that clearly tasted better and had a better aroma thankfully was the aerated one!

This was a lovely gift to receive, and also very useful.

To clean I simply rinse mine thoroughly under warm running water and leave it to dry naturally. When not in use the aerator sits quietly and discreetly on top of our wine rack. A handy device that I would recommend to any fellow red wine drinkers.

Being a lover of red wine (not just myself but also my husband) we were really pleased to be able to try this gadget out. What an excuse for the odd midweek drink or two, without feeling in the slightest bit guilty!

You hear of many items being 'just the thing to have', 'a welcome addition to anyone that likes the odd glass or two of wine', you fall for it, thinking 'will that cheaper bottle of wine taste better?' Most gadgets don't always come up trumps, but with this gadget it does.

Never before using it would I have thought it made that much difference.

We had a bottle of La Piuma (a very nice red, I can now say) one that we haven't had before, so as not to have had a judgement before tasting it with this Vinturi Wine Areator. My husband poured it out, really easy to use, you just pour the wine through the sieve like top bit of the areator with your wine glass underneath, it does make a whishing like noise when the wine goes through it. Then the gadget can be left on your table until you partake in the next glass. as it does look quite a groovy piece even when not being used. Now for some reason when I ordered it I was expecting it to be much bigger (maybe the size of a bottle cooler, husband thought it might be electrical, so be big) no good things come in small packages, well in this case it certainly did. Height wise it is about the size of two mugs put together on top of each other, and width wise about the size of a peppermill, so not a big item to have to store anywhere. If like myself yours won't be in a cupboard but out on display in the kitchen, letting friends try to guess what it does.

The Vinturi Aerator really is as good as it claims to be. I purchased one for my Father's birthday and he was delighted with it. the device is solid and well made and comes in a very elegant box, making it all the better for giving as a gift.
In use, it makes a rasping, bubbling noise as the wine flows though, which is quite entertaining, and not too loud. It has a good solid little base to sit it in at the table when not in use. The early feedback from my wine loving Father is that it definitely freshens up the taste from a just opened bottle.

The only downside is that I foolishly bought this from Amazon and not elsewhere. After 4 days and no delivery (paid for, not supersaver) I phoned Amazon and they said they were still calling the item in from another country and could not dispatch it to me for another two days! I told them the item said IN STOCK on its order page, but they insist it was "in stock, just in another country" and although they were delayed in posting it out to me by a week, this was not a problem (never mind my father's birthday) and refused to refund my postage.

A one off? Sadly not, this is the third time in a row I have bought an Amazon item listed as In Stock and they have not had it available to post for over a week.

As for the Aerator? Very happy, I just wish I had bought it from somewhere else.

There are loads of gadgets available for budding oenophiles, but most concentrate on the opening of a bottle or preserving its contents rather than attempting to improve its flavour. It basically takes the long established, SLOW process of decanting and turns it on its head, by speeding it up from the moment you uncork your favourite tipple and pour it through the device.

Such was my scepticism that I set up my own experiment to test its claims by pouring three glasses of a nice seven year old bordeaux, one through the vinturi, the other straight from the bottle and the final one after traditional decanting (note two bottles used). I then asked my good lady (not a wine snob btw) to try all three. The verdict was that the vinturi and traditional decanting exhibited significantly better bouquet and were much smoother on the palate and finish, than the immediately poured sample. As the resident family wine snob I had to agree, so no more opening the bottle three hours in advance of drinking for me, although I'll still use my decanter, but only after I've poured the wine through the vinturi first! One other thing I've found is that the effects are much better observed on younger reds than good aged ones because of the generally harsher tannins in the former. As such this will go a long way to making the supermarket 'impulse buy' taste twice as good for everyday drinking.

It comes beautifully packaged and whilst I originally thought it was made of glass, on closer inspection it appears to be made of a dense, clear plastic, that it claims is dishwasher proof- bonus!
