Vinturi Wine Aerator  -  Why it is Important to Let Wine Breathe

The Vinturi wine aerator has already been around for several years or so, but it is still gaining more and more hype within the wine industry every year. If you are a wine drinker then you probably have heard of this little device but if not you are in for a treat.

The majority of people that drink wine understand the importance of letting a good bottle of wine breathe for some time before you drink it and for many many years this has been done by using a decanter. Sometimes with a really big wine you may even double decant it. But then along came this little device called the Vinturi, which literally aerates your wine in a matter of seconds. At first you might think that this is a bit of a gimmick and believe me the first time I saw it I though it was a piece of junk as well. But after a while it actually grows on you and now it has gained quite a following in the world of wine.

In this article I want to take a look at how this Vinturi actually works and also why it is important to allow you wine to breathe.

The Vinturi is really very easy to use - you just hold it above your glass and pour your wine through it. The cleverly designed Vinturi speeds up the velocity of the wine and also decrease the pressure, which allows air to be sucked in like a vacuum through the holes in the side of the wine aerator. It is that simple. Your wine is now aerated and you can enjoy it straight away.

Aerating wine or allowing it to breathe 'opens up' your wine. When wine comes in contact with oxygen, oxidization starts to take place - if you have ever had a bottle of wine that tasted off (and you will know if you have had) it is because oxygen was allowed to get in during the storage process. So then why is it good to get oxygen into our wine after we have opened the bottle? Well oxygen speeds up the chemical reactions that are happening inside your wine and this lets the aromas and tastes develop more. When the wine maker made the wine it gets to a certain stage and then he/ she puts it in a bottle to stop the reaction process enabling the wine to be drunk for years to come.

So when you are out in a restaurant or at a wine tasting and you see all these people swirling wine around in their glass what they are ultimately trying to do is get more oxygen into the wine to allow the flavors and aromas to develop. At a lot of cellar doors and wine bars you used to have to wait for some time to allow a wine to open up but now a lot of these places are using the Vinturi wine aerator as it is quick and easy and effectively aerates the wine.

Still think it sounds too good to be true, well so did I at first - but after you go and taste one glass of wine that has been put through the Vinturi wine aerator and then you taste another that hasn't you can make up your own mind. After you pour wine through it though you may get quite a few bubbles on the top of the wine as there is a lot of air in it. It is important to allow these to settle especially if you are doing a blind tasting and you don't want people to know which is which.

If you have a very old bottle of red wine with a fair bot of sediment in the bottom of the bottle I would recommend using the wine aerator to pour the wine into a decanter. This will let the wine breathe even more than with just using theVinturi and you will open the wine up to a whole new world of flavors. Of course you can use this with both red and white wine. If you have a young red - say something like a cabernet then running it through the aerator can really bring out the nose and the flavors in the wine a lot more. A big white like an Australian chardonnay will also benefit from aeration and you will notice a lot more aromas develop and the wine will taste a lot less 'green.'

So there you have it - the reasons why you should allow you wine to breathe a bit and also how you can do it. You can see the Vinturi almost everywhere now, and there are loads of reviews online for the Vinturi wine aerator but one thing is for sure - even though it does aerate your wine - it kind of takes all the romance out of using a nice wine decanter.
