hi, which product is easier to clean? the vinturi aerator or the Soiree aerator? How do you clean them?
In reply to an earlier post on Sep 3, 2009 3:49:39 AM PDT
The Vinturi is dishwasher safe, but I usually just rinse it. One minor issue is that the aeration chamber tends to get stained red over extended use. It's not that big a deal, but it could probably be addressed by soaking it in a mild soap solution overnight. It's never bothered me enough to try.
The Soiree is made of glass and it doesn't have any small cracks/crevices so it rinses off easily.
Hope this is helpful!

When will you do a "head to head" comparison of all three aerators in terms of how similar wines compare after being "processed"?
Just picked up a Vinturi and am quite impressed and am now quite curious about the Resparer.
Many thanks for the very helpful videos!

Thanks for your interest. It's a very competitive market, isn't it? In addition to the Vinturi, Respirer and Soiree, I've got 2 others I'm currently evaluating: the Decantus and the BevWizard. One of the most common questions I'm asked is whether the Respirer is better than the Vinturi and my tests to date have indicated that they are equally effective. I'll do a write up on that on my site (and other comparisons) in the coming weeks.

Thanks for the update and I will definitly pass this info on along with your Web site url!
Used the Vinturi for only the second time tonight at a local restaurant with our friends who had brought a 2007 Bilae Zinfandel. Had tried it out at home the night before on a 2005 Benzinger Shiraz with definitely noticable (and delightful) results.
Poured a little of the Zin right from the bottle and all did a taste. Then poured through the Vinturi and the transformation was instantaneous and nothing short of miraculous!
I know my friend is ordering his via Amazon as we speak!
Definitly looking forward to a more detailed Vinturi vs. Respare comparison.
The concept and process definitly work!

Hi Robert, I've really enjoyed your reviews and it's helped me make decisions for Christmas gifts! Have you (or will you) review the Vin02? I noticed that it is less expensive and received all great reviews on Amazon. Thanks! Cam

This is the first I've heard of the Vin02. I might seek one out for review, but I'm having a hard time figuring out who the manufacturer is from a simple Google search. I've got a bit of a backlog of wine aerators to review currently, but once I get through these I may take a look at the Vin02 or others I haven't tried yet. If the Vin02 folks would like to send me one to review they can reach me at wellesleywinepress at gmail.com
Thanks for your interest!

Very nice review. Thanks for taking the time to improve amazon. I will be buying the Vinturi based on your review and seeing it in action.

Easy to watch video. I like this guy, and now, because of his appealing presentation, I like my $1.99 purchase of my Vinturi Wine Aerator at the Goodwill a lot. It's only 7:40 a.m., so I must wait 12 hours before I try it out. I can't wait to hear that sound that is produced when the wine goes through my Vinturi Wine Aerator and how my Trader Joe's Merlot will taste. Thanks, Mr. Dwyer for not being a wine snoot.
