Any wine buff will tell you the importance of a good wine aerator. Aerating creates a chemical reaction in the wine that brings about oxidation and evaporation. This results in a wine that’s less acidic and yields a smoother taste. Vinaera’s sleek, electric wine aerator sits tightly atop the bottle. With the push of the button, it will aerate only what is dispensed. Run on batteries, the product can aerate and dispense over 250 bottles of wine.
