VINE VOICEon July 11, 2011
I've purchased five of these so far--one for me and four more for friends--so you can tell that I like it.

Last night my girlfriend (who has 750 bottles of wine in her cellar) and I did a taste test--blind for her but necessarily not for me. We started with a Don Cayetano Chilean red. Three large glasses. One with wine right out of the bottle, just after opening. The second with the wine poured through a Vinturi. The third with the wine poured through this product. I knew which was which, and I felt that the Vinturi worked better than this, but this worked very well. My girlfriend didn't know which wine was in which glass until she tasted them. Then she immediately knew which was which. The unaerated wine was pretty harsh and oaky. The other glasses were open and smooth and delicious. You might say that the Vinturi is like letting the wine open in a decanter for an hour, while this product is like letting it open for a half hour. In seconds. Both products use Venturi valves to introduce a lot of air into the flow of wine. I don't know why the Vinturi opens the wine more, but it does.

So why did I buy four more of these after the taste test, rather than buy more Vinturis? 1) The Vinturi weighs twice as much, though it's about the same length. 2) This product fits right into the bottle, while with the Vinturi, I have to hold the device with one hand while pouring the wine with the other--it's awkward and easy to spill. 3) It's easy to drip wine out the bottom of the Vinturi after aerating wine and while returning it to the stand. By contrast, this product doesn't drip and it stays attached to the bottle, so it's easy to pour one-handed. 4) This product is much handier to take to a restaurant for instant aerating--it will fit in my blazer pocket without much of a bulge, unlike the Vinturi.

I wish this product aerated as well as the Vinturi, but it definitely does open the wine and make it drinkable at once. Weighing the pros and cons, I find that this is the easiest and handiest, and given that it does work well, these pros outweigh the extra aerating of the Vinturi.

The aerator works wonderfully and it looks better than the pictures. The one guy who wrote a bad review about the rubber gasket coming off must have put it in the washing machine under some real hot water. We all are smart enough to use warm water under the sink to clean it out after each use and realize plastic and fine rubber gaskets don't do well under extreme heat:)

Great product worth every penny and these will make great Christmas gifts.

Not only is the packaging beautifully designed, but the Trudeau Aroma Aerating Pourer is a example of contemporary style and utility. It worked perfectly for us, and we've found it is no longer necessary to sit and wait for our bottles of wine to breathe! Just pop the cork, put on the aerating pourer, and the wine is ready to pour and drink instantly. Not only do we love it, but so do our guests!! It makes a great gift, too.

I have had wine poured through different types aerators, and this one is one of the best. This product really opens up the wine and brings out flavors that were hard to taste before. The only bad part about this product is that I now drink more wine, but that's not always so bad.

Received this around Thanksgiving and was able to use it several times. The first time we tried it using 2 different bottles of the same wine; serving one with the Trudeau Aroma Aerating Pourer and the other straight from the bottle. There was an immediate difference with the Trudeau Pourer. The wine tasted fuller and cleaner and certainly made a difference. We found this to be the case throughout the busy weekend. We're wine drinkers in this house!!!!
It was simple to use and came in a very nice sturdy box to keep it stored in - like it's going to get stored away for any length of time around here. I'd say if you're a wine drinker this is a good purchase.

Initially, this product really worked well; however, after about four weeks use, the rubber that creates the "stopper/seal" rolled up and no longer functioned as a seal. After that, the product leaked, and would not stay on the bottle.

I did a TON of research on wine aerators for a month before the holidays and I rested on this device. Although I have had good prior experience with the so called "leading" competitor's aerator, I really wanted to find one that worked just as well on aerating the wine, but would attach to the top of the bottle so I didn't have to use two hands, deal with where to put it when done pouring, having it drip on the counter, etc. I wanted it simple & easy to use. I got my Trudeau aerator in the mail today (1/11/11) and was really excited to try it out! Not only was I impressed with how well it worked, I also took it with me to my friends' house for an impromptu dinner get together so they could try it too. We used it on a familiar bottle of wine we have had before and they loved it as well, noticing quite a difference in the flavor of the wine too! It makes the same strong aeration sound as the leading competitor's and the wine tasted EXCELLENT! In the interim before the holidays, I had purchased a low cost/ inferior aerator that worked just fine I felt, the wine tasted better, so to me that is a success on it's own. Tonight, I tried a 3rd glass experiment with the Trudeau in the mix and it was MUCH BETTER than my inferior aerator. I am glad I treated myself to this special Christmas gift! I am totally excited with this aerator and I think it's the best on the market! It's also BPA free and that's important to me as well. Not all aerators are made/ function alike for sure. There are more expensive one's that perform not as well. I think it also has a modern, classy & "sexy" design. Thanks for making a top notch product! I will give more of these as gifts now and in the future! :)

This pourer aerates the wine by sucking in air into the wine stream as you pour the wine. A simple device that decants as you pour which means you don't need a separate decanter. A must have for wine lovers as it increases the taste of the wine without the need to wait for it to decant.

I like this so much that I bought 7 of these for gifts and everyone loves it.

pros
1) easy to put on the the bottle
2) no hands needed after that, just pour.. the other types i have used need to hold the aerator with one hand and pour with the other
3) easily off, just a strengthen tug and it comes off
4) plenty of bubbles to aerate the wine
5) easy to clean, just run it through water and shake dry
6) and of course, it make the wine taste much better

cons
1) the no drip works most of the time, but sometimes there is a slight drip off the tip of the spout if you are not careful or overly careful
2) I wish there was a bulk discount.. lol

enjoy

As a red wine lover I decided to try using an aerator. Not being a knowledgeable expert on wine I wondered if I would notice any difference using this. To my surprise I, and other people with me, immediately noticed the aroma that came as soon as I started pouring. We all agreed that the wine had a wonderful flavor. This aerator is extremely easy to attach and therefore I had been a little concerned that it might leak around the neck. That was not the case. It makes a fun gurgling sound while pouring which encouraged one guest to ask for another glass to enjoy the aroma and sound yet again. It comes in a very attractive box that makes it ideal for gift giving. I would recommend this aerator to anyone wanting to enhance their wine drinking experience.
