Wine aerators that make your favorite vino taste better, faster
The larger, rounder flavors of aerated wine aren’t just available to you at vineyards and upscale restaurants. New gadgets can let you get you that decanted taste in a fraction of the time.
Wine aerating allows your wine to “breathe” through oxidation and evaporation, which in turn enhances the flavor profile and scent of the liquid. Here are our favorite aerators.
Add this four-inch-long plastic spout onto any wine bottle to aerate your wine as it pours. It uses a plate regulator that spreads out the wine to maximize air exposure, and can easily be tucked away in your kitchen drawer.
At six inches long, the Vintorio is just slightly larger than the TenTabLabs aerator and works in a similar way. The Vintorio, which claims it doubles the value of your wine, features an air tube for extra smooth pouring.
The Rabbit, one of the more well-known aerators, uses a different approach. Insert the silicone straw base into your wine bottle, and then pour the wine through its stainless steel and plastic funnel. Since you insert this aerator into your bottle rather than just attaching it, it can also double as a cork for a few days.
