Does white wine need to breathe?

Whether you are the casual wine drinker or a wine expert, the discussion on how best to serve wine can be taxing. Many people agree that red wine benefits from aeration or breathing. What about white wine?  Should you aerate your glass of white wine?

Allowing a wine to breath opens the flavors and aromas of the wine itself. Aerating has been associated mainly with red wine, but white wine can see improvements with aeration. When a wine is aerated, the intended aromas and flavors are opened. With the wine at its potential, the drinker can appreciate the wine more.

Vinturi offers white wine aerator to enhance your drinking experience. The aerator offers the following benefits, better bouquet, enhanced flavors and smoother finish. The patent pending design speeds up the aerating process. The proper amount of air for the right amount of time creates a simple, quick aeration.

For the impatient drinker, the Vinturi aerator provides a quick and convenient glass of wine.  To use the device, hold Vinturi over a glass and pour wine through it. The Vinturi does all the work for your. In the amount of time it takes to pour a glass, you have a perfect aeration.

I like the Vinturi for white wine because it is simple to use. I don't have to try to decant an entire bottle of wine. Since I enjoy a small glass once or twice a week, the pour system is perfect for my needs.

The best way to try the Vinturi is to taste the wine both aerated and un-aerated. The aerated version is more crisp, bright and balanced. Even an inexpensive bottle of wine can be more developed in flavor with aeration.

Vinturi can be purchased at a variety of retailers or online at The approximate retail price for a white wine aerator is $39.95.

Vinturi offers an entire line of aerators. The line includes red wine, spirits, and white wine. There are a variety of sizes, including a travel option. For more information on Vinturi and its products, please visit its website, Twitter account and Facebook page.
