Why Aerate Wine
If you’re like me you know next to nothing about wine other than it gets the job done. There’s so much more to know than just the alcohol content. Aeration is one of those things and it’s as simple as exposing the wine to air. I’ve recently read a very good article on TotalWine called Allowing Wine To Breathe which helped explain why aerating is done. If you already know how wine aerating works you’ll really appreciate what the Conundrum Decanter does.
Aerating helps to make the wine less harsh by softening the tannin in the wine which has a natural bitter taste. You could just open a bottle of wine but aeration will speed up the process.
With the Conundrum Aerator Decanter you’re not only aerating as you fill the decanter but as you serve the wine as well. Aerating in this way exposes more of the wine’s surface to air as apposed to just opening the bottle. Check out the video, it’s pretty cool and probably looks even cooler after you’ve had a few.

I yell this at every wedding I get kicked out of. Both before and after I’m asked to leave.
