A few weeks ago I received the Vinturi White Wine Aerator as a sample for review from the Vinturi company. Along with that, the Vinturi folks offered to do a give-away on my blog! So who does that benefit? You! All you need to do to win is go here on Facebook and like Vinturi, then come back here and tell me you did so and want to win. I’ll enter all the comment numbers in a hat and pull a winner in a week or so! The Vinturi White Wine Aerator retails for about $29 and would make a fun stocking stuffer for your favorite wino…or keep it for yourself!I’ve never done a give-away before, but I thought I’d give it a shot and see how it goes.
Now, I can see you shaking your head. Aerate white wine? Who does that? I must admit I was skeptical as well. I’ve never decanted or aerated white wine. I hosted a tasting last week and ran the Vinturi through its paces. The results? Sauvignon Blanc didn’t really seem to benefit, Riesling got a whole lot more aromatic, as did Viognier. It seemed to me to have the same results as letting your more aromatic whites warm up a bit. Pretty neat.
Toss your hat into the ring to try to win your own. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it too!
