Vinturi Deluxe 7-Piece Wine Aerator Set

Vinturi Deluxe 7-Piece Wine Aerator Set Review. From vinturi, the deluxe aerator set includes the new vinturi tower and the sensational vinturi red wine aerator. The set has a two piece design which makes it easy to clean and easy to store (even though you’ll want to keep this beautiful set out in full view). Tower features a stylish no-splash grate which eliminates mess. Vinturi has been a sensation because it works. 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. Taste your wine the way the winemaker intended. 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. Vinturi aerator sits on top of tower allowing for easy, hands-free operation. The glossy, clear acrylic is elegant and clean. But do note that there are two slight fold lines in the vinturi aerator 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. Both items are dishwasher safe.

 “It really works!” 2009-12-16

Well, I’ll be… this silly little thing actually works. How can you get the effect of decanted wine in the time it takes to pour a glass from a newly-opened bottle? After reading other reviews, I was convinced to try it, but after seeing it work I thought, “There’s no way- that was too fast and too easy.”

I was wrong.

I took 3 blind taste tests. I washed 2 identical glasses, opened a new bottle of Merlot, poured one straight from the bottle and poured the other through the Vinturi Aerator. I left the room and asked my wife to move the glasses to the table and call me when all the bubbles were gone. There was no question which one had been aerated. I picked it right away. Even when my son tried to tell me I picked wrong, I stood by my choice, it was that obvious. It softens the wine, releases the bouquet and created a silky finish. I took multiple tests and picked it right every time. My wife took turns testing and could tell as well.

I got an aerator for red and white so a couple days later I opened a bottle of white and did the same test and got the same results. The difference is enough that I won’t have a glass without it now. Even wine I would normally open and pour and drink right away is now aerated, red or white, it makes a real difference.

I bought the tower, which is an added expense, but it’s nice for parties so guests can serve themselves and not have to handle the aerator, just pour and enjoy. The quality of the parts feel solid, not cheesy plastic like I thought it would be. Taken care of, I don’t see why these can’t last for many years, and since it’s just liquid and air, it should work just as well in 10 years as it does today.

I’m impressed and plan to show them off to my fellow wine enthusiasts at our annual New Years party.

 “We love our wine and the Venturi is fantastic.” 2010-01-12

The Venturi is just what we hoped it would be. All the young wines at restaurants today make it difficult. We’ve used it on a newer red, 2007 Brunello, and an older, 1998 Shiraz, just to see the difference. The Shiraz was already ready to drink but the Venturi opened it quickly. The 2007 was amazing – it was far too young and yet the Venturi did the trick. It still isn’t a 1998 vintage but the difference was truly amazing. You can take the Venturi anywhere in its cloth case. Get the tower as well but use a decanter underneath instead of a wine glass. With a glass (even a taller one) there is some spill from the height. The tower does have a “catch” for the spill but the decanter takes away most of that.

The Vinturi Deluxe Aerator Set was a present we bought for our daughter.

She is very pleased with it and it looks good on her counter with the stand and all. (It was on her Christmas list.)

We have a plain Vinturi without the stand and use it regularly to decant wines. We seldom think to open a bottle before we want to drink it, so this “opens” the wine and brings out its best flavors and nose instant gratification style.

The stand would be a little handier to use and provides a good place to keep the Vinturi.

Once you’ve used an aerator for reds you’ll never be without one again. We use this one on the tower at home and have another (without tower) for traveling.

Love it. Loved accessing the amazon link at […]. Arrived within 2 days despite regular shipping option! The aerator brings out the truth and complexities of a good wine. And the stand is so eloquent. Best price around.
