I have often been very frustrated by drinking wines that needed to be decanted and aired, so that the true soul of the wine would develop slowly . Sadly, this process involved in either decanting and letting the wine air for a long period of time and then generously swirling it around to get the bouquet and flavours of the wine out,this in turn spoilt the pleasure of drinking a wine straight away after opening it.

So, instead of relishing the wine, it literally left a bad taste in my mouth until a good friend of mine from Japan introduced me to Vinturi a six inch tall device which sounds like an unplugged drain when wine is poured through it but does the job of airing in a matter of seconds, it’s been my wine buddy ever since and I can’t imagine pouring a wine without it.Its ultra portable,even has a stand and a cloth cover to keep in your pocket for those “magic moments’.This low tech looking device has a lot of engineering  behind it and my tip is,don’t cover the holes on the side of the Vinturi,while pouring the wine,to get a better affect pour the wine twice or thrice through the device,you will be surprised with the results.





To those who are ignorant about a decanter, it is a vessel that is used to hold the decantation of a liquid (such as wine) which may contain sediment. Decanters are normally used as serving vessels for wine. Decanters vary in shape and design. They are usually made of an inert material (such as glass) and will hold at least one standard bottle of wine (0.75 litre).A similar kind of vessel, the carafe /kəˈræf/, is used for serving wine as well as other drinks, but is not supplied with a stopper.


Decanters have been used for serving wines that are laden with sediments in the original bottle. These sediments could be the result of a very old wine or one that was not filtered or clarified during the winemaking process. In most modern winemaking, the need to decant for this purpose has been significantly reduced, because many wines no longer produce a significant amount of sediment as they age.




Another reason for decanting wine is to aerate it, or allow it to “breathe”. The decanter is meant to mimic the effects of swirling the wine glass to stimulate the oxidation processes which trigger the release of more aroma compounds. In addition it is thought to benefit the wine by smoothing some of the harsher aspects of the wine (like tannins or potential wine faults like mercaptans). Many wine writers advocate decanting for the purposes of aeration, especially with very tannic wines like Barolo, Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon, Port, and Rhône wines while noting that decanting could be harmful for more delicate wines like Chianti and Pinot noir.

However, the effectiveness of decanting is a topic of debate, with some wine experts like oenologist Émile Peynaud claiming that the prolonged exposure to oxygen actually diffuses and dissipates more aroma compounds than it stimulates, in contrast to the effects of the smaller scale exposure and immediate release that swirling the wine in a drinker’s glass has.In addition it has been reported that the process of decanting over a period of a few hours does not have the effect of softening tannins. The softening of tannins occurs during the winemaking and oak aging when tannins go through a process of polymerization that can last days or weeks – decanting merely alters the perception of sulfites and other chemical compounds in the wine through oxidation, which can give some drinkers the sense of softer tannins in the wine.







Bernoulli’s Principle states that as the speed of a moving fluid increases, the pressure within the fluid decreases. This is dictated by the law of conservation of energy.

When wine is poured in the Vinturi, its internal design creates an increase in the wine’s velocity and a decrease in its pressure. This pressure difference draws in air which is mixed with wine for perfect aeration.


Love wine but tired of the hassle of pouring it into a decanter and waiting more than 30 seconds to drink it? Good news! Assuming you have any Yuppie friends, there’s a strong chance you’ll be the recipient of a Vinturi wine aerator as a holiday present this year. They’re all the rage (especially with types who already own The Rabbit bottle opener).






The Vinturi wine aerator is a 6″-tall device that looks a little like a funnel and is meant to speed up the process of decanting. To use it, pour wine through the Vinturi into your glass, and watch the device take advantage of Bernoulli’s Principal, which states that as the speed of a fluid increases, the pressure within it decreases.  According to a Vinturi rep, this “accelerates the natural blending of air and wine, revealing its true essence and character.” In other words, the Vinturi claims that it can do in a matter of seconds what a decanter does in an hour or more. Sounds good. But also sounds gimmicky.

Wine lovers have long known that allowing a wine to breathe before drinking it significantly improves the experience of the wine. This tool makes the aerating process easy and convenient.




Wine which has been allowed to breathe tastes better. As wine breathes, it opens up, and releases its intended aromas and flavors. Traditionally, decanters were used to aerate wine. However, decanting is time consuming, cumbersome, and inconvenient.

Vinturi’s patented design speeds up this process with ease and convenience. Perfect aeration in the time it takes to pour a glass.



Simply hold Vinturi over a glass and pour wine through. Vinturi draws in and mixes the proper amount of air for the right amount of time, allowing your wine to breathe instantly. You’ll notice a better bouquet, enhanced flavors and smoother finish.

It’s that fast. It’s that easy.




Provides perfect aeration in the time it takes to pour a glass of wine.

Wine mixes with the proper amount of air for the right amount of time, releasing its intended flavor and bouquet.

Simply hold the aerator over a glass and pour the wine through.

Attractive, compact and solidly built from acrylic.

Comes with a no-drip stand, a travel pouch and a sediment filter.

Dishwasher safe.






Sample the nose. You’ll appreciate the subtle aromatic differences and the full aroma of the wine. Vinturi allows wine to display its intended aromas.


Go ahead, take a sip. Vinturi’s wine tastes better. It is more flavorful and has better mouthfeel. It tastes like a richer, more expensive wine. It tastes like it was intended to and is more enjoyable.


Ahhhh. Vinturi’s aeration is very effective at softening tannins which results in a much more pleasant finish. Any bitterness or bad aftertaste is reduced or eliminated.
