Enjoy wine at its best with this pocket wine aerator that you can easily bring anywhere. Every wine enthusiast knows the essence of aerating wine. And you should too if you want to bring out the best in your favorite spirits. Aeration is a simple process of exposing the wine to the air and letting it ‘breathe’ before you drink it. But how does it enhance the aroma and flavor of the wine? When you open a bottle of wine, you often smell an off-putting odor coming from the ethanol in the liquid. Exposing the liquor to air helps disperse some of the initial odor, leaving the purest aroma of the vino.
Not only does aeration enhance the aroma of the wine but it also brings out its full flavor. It does so by softening tannins and straining any sediments in the liquid to smooth out the flavor. Hence, aeration is necessary to ensure that you’re getting the full flavor and aroma of the wine. Decanters and spout aerators are commonly used to do the job. But decanters can take hours to aerate the liquor and using spout aerators can get a bit messy. Not to mention, these aerating tools aren’t something you can easily carry anywhere. What if you need to enhance your wine at a bar or during a camping trip?

“I did a test where I poured 2 glasses and just used the aerator on one. My boyfriend and I concurred. There was a noted difference in a glass poured that wasn’t aerated with the [device] and one that was. I now use it for every glass of wine I drink and enjoy it thoroughly. It’s small enough to travel with and to bring to restaurants.”
