Aerating is an important step in opening up any almost wine and allowing it to breath. Aerating a wine exposes the wine to oxygen, revealing the rich complexities and maximizing the flavor, aroma and smoothness of your favorite wines.
GiftedGrape.com carries a number of different styles of wine aerators.
We have aerators that coordinate with wine decanters to aerate an entire bottle of wine, to models that seat inside the wine bottle neck and aerate each serving of wine as you pour. We even have aerating wine glasses, so you can aerate as you mingle and sip!

Decanting your wines can be beneficial in almost every situation, from casual sipping to socializing with friends. Decanting wines makes a wonderful presentation to your guests, while helping aerate the wine and removing sediment with careful pouring. Red wines in particular benefit from being decanted, as exposing the wine to oxygen softens the harsh tannins that develop during aging. In the case of screw top wines, decanting can also help remove gases that would normally escape through a more porous cork.
We have many types of decanters. Choose a stunning crystal decanter that feels lighter than air, or the traditional wine carafe used at many restaurants. We also carry an unusual orbital decanter that collects sediment, and an oval decanter that will highlight the color of your red wines beautifully.
We were confused, too… leftover wine? What’s that?

Wine needs to react with air to reveal its fullest flavor and bouquet – that is why most fine wines are decanted. Often people want to have the benefit of decanting a glass of wine without having to decant the entire bottle of wine. There are two excellent by-the glass wine aeration options available. Both use the Bernoulli effect to draw air flow into the apparatus and release the wine into the glass delivering wine that has been aereated. Bernoulli’s principle states that as the speed of a moving fluid increases, the pressure within the fluid decreases. When wine is poured through these devices an increase in the wine’s velocity and a decrease in its pressure is produced. This pressure difference draws in air, which is mixed with wine for perfect aeration.
The most well known and popular by-the -glass decanter is the Vinturi Wine Aerator. The New York Times said, “If you hate to wait for a wine to breath, you’re in for a treat: the Vinturi Wine Aerator. With this handy device, you can insert air into the wine in a matter of mere moments.” In an independent double blind tasting conducted by Vinquiry Analytics in Napa CA, it was noted that “The same bottle of wine treated with Vinturi was higher in overall flavor intensity and mouthfeel…higher in red color intensity and overall aroma intensity…more true to type and of higher quality.”
Franmara has just released the new DECANTUS Wine Decanting System. They feel that this is a better product than the Vinturi due to the improved design. The wider opening on top and larger liquid capacity of the top reservoir bowl makes pouring into the DECANTUS much easier than with the Vinturi. Wine travels faster through the DECANTUS without a whirlpool effect because of the vertical planar insert. The “froth” from the DECANTUS has fine bubbles giving smoother aeration than any other aerator on the market. The DECANTUS Deluxe has two handles for easy handling while pouring. A Table Stand is also available and provides a hands-free platform for pouring wine through the DECANTUS Deluxe.
