Metrokane Rabbit Wine Aerating Pourer Review. Metrokane, founded in 1983, produces the world’s leading line of wine accessories, including the famous Rabbit corkscrew, and continues to develop a host of fresh and innovative tools. “Just pour and taste the difference”. With the Metrokane wine aerating pourer you don’t need a separate aerator. Simply insert the Rabbit Aerating Pourer into a wine bottle as you would a conventional pourer. When you pour the wine you see and hear aeration happening. When you taste it, you enjoy the enhanced flavor and bouquet of perfectly aerated red wine. The Rabbit Aerating Pourer is the first easy, uncomplicated way to aerate wine. Each aerating pourer separates for hand washing and stores in it’s own case.

In these days of over-hyped products that rarely work as advertised, it’s a treat to find something that actually does what it’s supposed to do. Metrokane’s Rabbit Wine Aerating Pourer is one that does, based on our family’s experience. We’ve found it greatly improves the taste and drinkability of freshly opened red wines without having to decant them from the bottle, while at the same time being functional and easy to use. As an added bonus, clean up is a snap! We tried it out with members of our gourmet group and it garnered kudos from all concerned. Highly recommended!

After my boyfriend and I attended our first wine tasting/ guided tour, we learned that after opening a bottle of wine, it’s best to let it breathe for a while.

The rabbit aerator allows us to enjoy a newly opened bottle of wine immediately, rather than waiting for it to breathe.

We tested the aerator on both a red and a white wine and we could definitely tell the difference. (Although technically I think they make separate aerators for whites and reds.)

The aerated wine was very smooth with little to no acidic finish. The non-aerated wine was quite a bit harsher with an acidic finish. The flavors and scents were noticeably different as well.

It was fun to do our own at-home taste test, and we will definitely use this when we have friends over for a party.

Please note: I was personally concerned about the aerator leaking, not fitting the bottle, or being difficult to remove. I was pleasantly surprised to find that none of these were a problem.

Great product, and I highly recommend it.

I used to own a Vinturi but threw it out because it started to have a harsh plastic-type smell. So i bought the metrokane aerator, which is $10 cheaper and much better because you don’t need 2 hands. I would recommend this aerator over the Vinturi.

Tried the aerator over the holidays, seems to give the red wine a better, fresher taste? my opinion. Pours well and doesn’t drip.

The wine aerating pourer is a device that lets flow wine over a larger surface under the inclusion of air. This way the wine is aerated instantly, to the same effect then pouring it in a caraffe and let it stand for an hour. The different taste compared to direct pouring is detectable even for an untrained tongue. The wine gets instantly more mellow and balanced, especially if the tannin content is high.

The device consists of two pieces which can be easily detached and cleaned and fits all wine bottles. It does not replace a caraffe for festive occasions but as an instant improvement for the casual bottle of wine it is an excellent idea.
