The best way to let your wine breathe is with a wine aerator. These aerators allow air to mix with your wine while its being poured and help bring out all the lovely flavors of your wine.
Without one of these fantastic aerators, it can take as long as an hour to let your wine breathe properly. Here are a few aerators to help you enjoy your next red wine even more:
Vinturi has three different ways for you to use an aerator to enjoy your next glass of red wine.
The Vinturi Essential is the main part of any Vinturi aerator set. Just hold this aerator over a glass and pour.
