vinOair – the wine aerator

1. What make this a better aerator? The patent pending vinOair has a specially designed venturi chamber which pulls twice the vacuum as the leading venturi aerators. Most aerators pull 10 inch vacuum and the vinOair pulls a 20 inch vacuum.

2. Why doesn’t the vinOair have a stand? The vinOair does not require a stand because it functions not only as an aerator, but also as a pourer and a drip stopper. The sleek ergonomic design of the vinOair allows the user to place it into the wine bottle where it is secured by the food grade rubber ring which makes an airtight seal. The aerator remains in the bottle so that with each pouring the wine is aerated and the vinOair remains securely in the bottle. The edge of the vinOair acts as a drip stopper.

3. Why is the vinOair so small? The design of the vinOair was done to develop a pocket sized aerator that can be easily transported in a travel bar, taken to restaurants/tastings, and also be easily carried along with an opener by wait staff. It isn’t the size of the aerator that determines how effective it is — is the vacuum pull of the venturi in the aerator that determines the success in opening up wines.

4. How does the VinOair compare to other aerators? The vinOair was tested by several San Francisco Bay Area chefs/restaurant owners prior during its development. The vinOair scored high in all blind taste tests and was a favorite over the currently best selling Vinturi due to the ability to leave the aerator in the bottle and not risk drips on the table as the aerator is moved to another glass – and it was not necessary to hold the aerator steady over either a glass or a decanter. The vinOair also scored high marks over the Nuance Wine Finer based on the speed of pour – the Nuance is much slower. The solid food grade plastic of the vinOair was found superior to the silicon of the Nuance as it did not retain any aroma from the pouring.
