Aeration improves the flavor and bouquet of a newly opened bottle of red wine. The conventional method of aerating wine is to pour it into a decanter before serving. But now you can gently aerate your wine right in the glass with the Houdini Aerating Pourer. It’s designed to provide just the right amount of aeration—enough to soften the wine but not enough to flatten its taste.
Try this Side-By-Side Test: Pour about four ounces of red wine into a glass from a freshly opened bottle. Insert the Houdini Aerating Pourer in the bottleneck and pour the same amount into a second glass. Notice aeration happening as the wine swirls through the Aerating Pourer before it reaches the glass. Raise the first glass to your nose, sniff it and taste it. Then do the same with the second glass. You will find the bouquet of the wine in the second glass is more vivid and its taste more agreeably complex, with a strong finish. That will be reason enough to use the Houdini Aerating Pourer whenever you serve red wine.
