BenI would like to revisit the Vinturi. I’m not easy to impress with ‘Gimmicks’ but the Vinturi is the Real Deal! I truly believed before hand that the Vinturi worked but if I’m going to recommend it I wanted to be able to have some hard evidence. I asked 6 people to my house for an evening of Wine Tasting where we had 3 different red wines. Each of the wines were only 3-6 weeks old. I set up the tasting as a blind taste test.

red_thumb_big2[1]First I poured the 3 wines straight from the bottle and my guests tasted them. We then sample all 3 wines again but this time they were poured into the glass through the Vinturi. ALL 6 people chose the 2nd tasting over the first saying that it was both a ‘better taste’ and ‘a longer lasting taste on the pallet.

For those of you who don’t know- the Vinturi is a hand held unit that you pour your wine through as it goes into the glass. The Vinturi has two little holes in it which with a ‘venturi’ effect rapidly aerate your wine. This helps open up your wine and also will rid any residual CO2 that your wine may have.

This fantastic little unit (available at Wine Sense) is now being used in Tasting Rooms in wineries all over North America. The reason the Vinturi is a great tool for home winemakers is that we tend to drink our wine a tad to early : )  

It’s a great gift for any winemaker or wine drinker so you’ll want to put one on your Christmas list.
