We’ve spoken before about removing the mystery surrounding wine and enjoying it, and as far...
Pocket sized and oh-so versatile, the VinOair is a three-in-one aerator, pourer and drip-stopper. Adding air to wine smooths out the tannins, and opens up flavours for your enjoyment. And since it doubles as a pourer and drip stopper, the whole experience is neater and cleaner. Great things in small packages? We hear you.
- Add air to young wine to smooth out harsh tannins
- Prevent drips and spills by using a pourer
- Filter out most sediment in old wines

What makes this a better aerator? The patent pending vinOair has a specially designed venturi chamber which pulls twice the volume of other aerators.
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.
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 or tastings, and also be easily carried along with an opener by waitrons. It isn't the size of the aerator that determines how effective it is but rather the vacuum pull of the venturi in the aerator that determines the success in opening up wines.
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 favourite over the currently best-selling Venturi 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 based on the speed of pour and the solid food grade plastic of the vinOair does not retain any aroma from the pouring.
