Red Wine Aerator
Vinturi’s patented design draws in and mixes the proper amount of air for the right amount of time; allowing your wine to breathe instantly. When wine is poured in the Vinturi, its internal design creates an increase in the wine’s velocity and a decrease in its pressure.
This pressure difference draws in air, which is mixed with wine, for perfect aeration. The Vinturi Red Wine Aerator delivers a better bouquet, enhanced flavors and a smoother finish
Enjoy your wine from the very first sip!
Vinturi was the first venturi-driven, handheld wine aerator. Vinturi’s patented technology is designed to infuse the perfect amount of oxygen to interact with wine as it is poured through the chamber. We tested different contact times and geometries to arrive at mixing the proper amount of air for the right amount of time. As the wine increases velocity, oxygen is drawn in through air intake channels.
Red wine needs to breathe to allow it to open up, release its intended aromas, and of course, make it taste better. Vinturi's patent pending design speeds up this process by instantly aerating with ease and convenience. It delivers recognizable improvements immediately: better bouquet, enhanced flavors and smoother finish. Perfect aeration in the time it takes to pour a glass. It couldn't be easier. Comes with a no-drip stand. Made of acrylic. Aerator and stand are dishwasher safe. The glossy, clear acrylic is elegant and clean. But do note that there are two slight fold lines that extend upward from each air hole. These are normal. During manufacturing, material folds around rods and wraps back, and this causes the fold lines.

Top Customer Reviews
Now, let me save you a couple bucks. The basic device includes a small rubber stand for storing the Vinturi. It is just fine. The upgraded 6-piece set includes a less-than-useful stand. It is not attractive enough to leave on display, so it's another bulky thing to store. Also, we found that our wine glasses were either too short--and we got spashing--or they were too tall and wouldn't fit. Plus, the stand holds the Vinturi perfectly vertical, which is contrary to the included instructions, which tell you to tip it slightly to the side.
So, fellow wine drinkers, get the $25.47 model, and you'll be quite pleased. Don't waste your money on the six-piece version with the stand.
Test & Practice:
Hold the Vinturi Aerator under a running tap/faucet. Not full blast, just enough so water isn't running out over the top. => LISTEN..
Tilt it slighty (in any direction) to get a feel for maximizing the aeration sound. That's the sound you want and need to hear when pouring wine through the device.
You'll hear a sucking sound, which means air is being pulled IN through the side holes (which also means stuff is not leaking OUT through the side holes).
Wine Pour Instructions:
Hold the Vinturi Aerator in one hand (don't cover the vent holes) and the wine bottle in the other hand.
Tilt the Vinturi Aerator slightly TOWARDS the bottle (don't tilt it away from the bottle). Just a tiny bit TOWARDS the bottle.
Then pour the wine so that it hits the opposing wall of the Aerator (the side of the Aerator furthest from the bottle).
DO NOT AIM FOR THE CENTER and DO NOT POUR SLOWLY.
Pour at a normal rate. It's necessary to keep the volume of wine and flow rate at a certain level. Just pour like you normally would.
Listen for THAT SOUND.
Follow these instructions and you'll become a Vinturi Master. You've achieved maximum aeration without any leaking or mess.
I pour my wine in the kitchen, so I rinse it with water after every use and keep it in the dish rack in the sink.
Super zippy, super aeration and no mess whatsoever.
Now, why did I give it 3 stars? Because like several other reviewers, mine showed up with cracks extending from the suction holes in the side. I don't blame the vendor. This damage was not due to shipping or handling. This is an issue from the manufacturing process and quality control. It's been reported enough that you would think something would have been done about it by now. I don't know if it affects its use, but I bought a new undamaged aerator and that's what I expect to receive. It's going back, but I do intend to buy another. Fingers crossed that I get a good one this time.
So get one and see for yourself; makes a real taste difference in red wines. In this wino's opinion you don't need one for whites: They aren't going to taste any better whether processed through a Vinturi unit or allowed to sit open for 2 hours, or drunk right out of the freshly opened bottle.
The aerator is half price now compared to when I bought it in 2008.
Edit : Its been about 2 weeks and the worst part about the whole experience is not the product but its the customer service will not respond to me to help me fix this issue of my cracked product.
