Vinturi Gift Set  -  The Importance Of Letting Wine Breathe

The Vinturi gift set consists of a Vinturi essential wine aerator, the Vinturi tower, a sediment strainer and a travel pouch for the wine aerator itself. But I can hear you asking the question - what is a Vinturi and why should I use it to aerate my wine?

The Vinturi Essential Wine Aerator is a little device that you can pour wine through and into your glass and your wine is aerated immediately. Before this little device we used to have to decant our wine and wait for a few hours for it to breath. The Vinturi works by increasing the speed at which the wine is moving and at the same time decreasing the pressure of the pour, there are two small holes on each side of the Vinturi and these suck air into the unit itself and mix it with the wine. And there you have it 100% aerated wine.

Letting your wine breath or having it properly aerated is good for a few reasons. Firstly when wine is put into a bottle the wine maker is actually stopping the chemical reactions that are occurring in the wine and stopping it from oxidizing. When you open a bottle the oxidization process starts (or speeds) back up and the flavors and bouquets in the wine improve and open up. We used to use a decanter to do this and in many restaurants you will see decanters being used, as they are part of a nice dining experience.

But for around the house when you want to have a glass of wine, waiting for it to breathe or open up can be a pain and decanters can be a nuisance. Of course red wines are usually decantered and are said to benefit more from breathing or opening up, but in fact all wines can change after you get some air into them. Young wines especially will benefit from being allowed to breathe and many larger styles of whites such as Chardonnay do require aeration. Wine that has been allowed to breathe will often give of better aromas and have a better finish.

The Vinturi gift set comes with a sediment filter as well which is good for those big red wines as many of them may have tannins that need to be filtered out. Larger style reds like cabernets and Shiraz would benefit the most from being allowed to breathe and more delicate wine like pinots even though they don't really need to be aerated, also benefit from a bit of air.

There are many reviews online that will review the Vinturi gift set and it is a good idea to do a bit of research to see if it is what you are really after.
