Menu - Decanting Wine Pourers & Aerators
I'm no wine expert, but the ones I've met stress the importance of aeration, or 'breathing', to get the full flavor out of your aged potions. Particularly reds. Aerating usually takes awhile and requires some separate glassware-type equipment. Menu comes to the rescue with their line of Decanting Pourers & Aerators. You simply insert the cool, black rubber stopper end into your bottle, and the device, using some smart design, aerates your wine as your pour it into your glass. The spout is designed to be drip free (no more streaks down the bottle!). Reviews are remarkably good, and mine should arrive in a few days so I'll let you know my thoughts :). Just so you know (no site seems to say this) there are 3 versions sold (in increasing price order): Selection, Vignion, and Premium. Selection is all plastic (acrylic) so you can see the air+wine mixing action. Vignion simply has a nice stainless steel base, while the Premium model has plastic to see the mixing with a solid, stainless steel funnel end. As far as I've heard they all work the same. The different versions are just for design purposes (and priced accordingly). You can see pics of all three and a graphic illustrating how they work with the 'Take a closer look' button. UPDATE: Got the 'Selection' model and tried it on a simple bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon I knew well. It works! After pouring through the gizmo, the dense, heavy Cabernet was separated a bit into its constituent flavors, for more detailed tasting and enjoyment.

Description: Red wine needs to breathe to allow it to open up, release its intended aromas, and of course, make it taste better. Vinturi's patent pending design speeds up this process by instantly aerating with ease and convenience. White wine needs to breathe too. It is a longstanding myth that white wine does not need aeration. The truth is that white wine displays the same improvements with aeration as red wine. Vinturi white is the most effective way to aerate white wine. Taste your wine the way the winemaker intended. Vinturi for white wine is specially designed to aerate white wine exclusively. Both Vinturi red and white aerators deliver recognizable improvements immediately: better bouquet, enhanced flavors and smoother finish. Perfect aeration in the time it takes to pour a glass. It couldn't be easier. Vinturi aerators come with a no-drip stand and a travel pouch. Made of acrylic. Aerator and stand are dishwasher safe. Travel pouch is machine washable. The glossy, clear acrylic is elegant and clean. But do note that there are two slight fold lines that extend upward from each air hole. These are normal. During manufacturing, material folds around rods and wraps back, and this causes the fold lines. Set of 2.
