Wine Gadgets – the Vinturi Aerator and Corkcicle as seen on the Gadget Show
The latest episode of The Gadget Show features some great little wine gadgets that we couldn’t help but get excited about. The first is the Vinturi Deluxe Aerator, the less deluxe version of which has already made an appearance on Stephen Fry: Gadget Man, which speeds up the aeration time for your wine. All you need to do is pour the wine through the gadget and into your glass and you’ll have better tasting, smoother wine in seconds. The next is the Corkcicle; a clever cork bottle stop which also works to keep your wine cool at the same time, using a thermal gel which you chill in the freezer and can then be reused again.
From vinturi, the deluxe aerator set includes the new vinturi tower and the sensational vinturi red wine aerator. The set has a two piece design which makes it easy to clean and easy to store (even though you'll want to keep this beautiful set out in full view). Tower features a stylish no-splash grate which eliminates mess. Vinturi has been a sensation because it works. Red wine needs to breathe to allow it to open up, release its intended aromas, and of course, make it taste better. Vinturi's patent pending design speeds up this process by instantly aerating with ease and convenience. Taste your wine the way the winemaker intended. It delivers recognizable improvements immediately: better bouquet, enhanced flavors and smoother finish. Perfect aeration in the time it takes to pour a glass! It couldn't be easier. Vinturi aerator sits on top of tower allowing for easy, hands-free operation. The glossy, clear acrylic is elegant and clean. But do note that there are two slight fold lines in the vinturi aerator that extend upward from each air hole. These are normal. During manufacturing, material folds around rods and wraps back, and this causes the fold lines. Both items are dishwasher safe.
