Remember to breathe
It’s time to up our wine drinking game.
Serious wine drinkers decant their reds for at least an hour before sipping to let them breath. The less patient among us can speed the process along with the Vinturi Wine Aerator. The gadget developed in Napa changes the air pressure in wine as it is poured through. Within seconds, red wines come out on the other side of the aerator tasting smoother with a softer aftertaste.
You don’t have to be one of those drinkers who swirl and spit and recognize notes of leather and tobacco to recognize that the Vinturi helps wine taste its best. —Jaelyn Molyneux
