How to Aerate Wine

If you are just starting out as a wine lover or you have been doing it for sometime then you are probably interested in how to aerate wine. Aerating wine or letting wine breathe is an important part of the wine drinking process.

But even though I did say process, aerating wine is not as technical as you might think.

The first thing you need to do to aerate wine is to get it out of the bottle, you can pour it into a carafe or a decanter - something with a large surface area that has a lot of contact with the air.

Even a large glass like a wine glass or a fish bowl is great. Anything where the wine has maximum contact with the air.

There are also some devices available now that aerate your wine for you. These are called wine aerators and the Vinturi is probably the most well known. These work the same way as a decanter in that they get as much air as possible into your wine. Using a decanter to aerate wine can sometimes take hours and the longer that the wine is allowed to breathe or aerate the more the bouquets and flavors of the wine come through.

You may sometimes see people swirling wine around in their glasses. This is the act of opening the wine up, again another way for us to say aerating the wine or letting it breathe. Usually we aerate larger styles of red wines like cabernets and Shiraz or syrah, but it is actually all wines that benefit from being allowed to air or open up.

Using an aerator like the Vinturi essential wine aerator is a quick and easy way to aerate your wine. The Vinturi has been designed to aerate wine by increasing the velocity of the pour whilst also decreasing the pressure on the wine. It is a bit technical but it is very easy to use. All you have to do is pour the wine through the Vinturi and into your glass or you can even pour it into a decanter if you wish.

The Vinturi has two air wholes on both of its sides and it sucks air in through these air holes and mixes it with your wine. It does this almost instantly and in the time it takes you to pour your wine from the bottle and into your glass (through the Vinturi) then your wine has been aerated.

Knowing how to aerate wine is not as difficult as everyone says and knowing how to aerate wine with a vinturi wine aerator is actually really easy. Enjoy aerating your wine and enjoy drinking your wine.
