I found a comparative review at an online wine site, where they tested I think five different aerators. They judged that the Soiree produces the best tasting wine, and gave the Vinturi a very close second. The others tested all came in a lot lower than these two.
I picked the Soiree because I like the bottle-top functioning, and I think the large-surface-area technology is better than what the Vinturi has. It's also very easy to rinse out after use. In using the Soiree you turn the bottle vertical, so the wine flows out in a thin sheet all over the insides of the glass sphere, exposing it to lots of air.
The only thing I don't like about the Soiree is that a tablespoon or so of aerated wine flows back into the bottle after each pour. Fine if you're going to drink the bottle in one setting, but maybe not so good if you're going to put half the bottle in the fridge for tomorrow. Maybe I'm being too neurotic about that.
However, I find Soiree rather cumbersome to use. Firstly, it's made of fairly thin glass and one has to be careful not to bang it against the wine glass when pouring. It's only a question of time before it (or the glass) breaks.
What's more annoying is that there's no back-flow stopper and aerated wine left in the aerator vial will just end up back in the bottle after pouring (unless you remove the aerator from the bottle while holding it nearly horizontally, which causes spills, etc).
Finally, the included stand is a total POS cheapo made in China- not at all what you'd expect for an accessory at this price. You'd think the stand would be used to prevent dripping, but it has a hole right in the center, so the remaining drops of wine end up on the table instead !
I've tried Vinturi aerator at a friend's place and would definitely recommend it- it's made of thick clear plastic, it's much easier to pour through, even know you need to use both hands and it has a very nice spill-proof stand.
It is a snap to put on the bottle and a snap to clean. I drink wine more frequently that I'd like to admit (almost exclusively red), and I have not yet had a bottle the Soiree does not fit. I have used it for over a year at this point, and it also seems rugged and not nearly as fragile as it looks. I have not had a single issue with drips or leaks.
Overall I highly recommend this product if you like big red wines, and like me, are to impatient to wait for a freshly opened bottle to aerate.

My boyfriend now swears by this after side by side trying non-aerated and aerated wine. It's very fragile and made of a thinner type of glass. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Jennifer

I have used the aerator several times and it definitely opened up the flavor of the wine. I am very happy with the purchase.Published 7 months ago by Kbear
A great way to bring out the 'true' taste of red wines without decanting the bottle.
This aerator comes with its own 'stand' so it will not be lost.
