Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I aerate wine?
Aeration, exposing wine to air, broadens its character and helps soften the acidity often found in younger wines, whilst coaxing out those complex tastes and aromas hidden in more mature bottles.
Traditionally, this has meant decanting a bottle of wine into a decanter and leaving it to breathe for a while. However, with a wine aerator, you can obtain the same decanter-quality wine in a fraction of the time.
WineWeaver’s® Single Glass Decanter wine aerator delivers the highest level of naturally aerated wine served directly to your wineglass or decanter, revealing not only a heightened aroma but a smoother taste and more mellow finish than a wine poured straight from the bottle.

Do I use WineWeaver® wine aerators with a wine glass or a decanter?
The WineWeaver® wine aerator has been designed for use with both wine glasses and traditional decanters.
WineWeaver’s® unique adjustable spout allows for a smooth delivery across a wide variety of wine glasses and decanters to ensure aeration is suited to the shape and size of your wine glass or decanter.
So, whether you choose to have a glass of wine in the evening or you’re opening a bottle to share, the WineWeaver® wine aerator works in perfect harmony with your glassware, be that a glass or a decanter.

Is the WineWeaver® easy to use?
Simply raise the aeration spout up for a single-glass setting or lower for use with a decanter then place the WineWeaver® wine aerator directly onto your glass or decanter for easy hands-free use.
By slowly pouring your wine through the WineWeaver®, the perforations in the adjustable spout will naturally weave air into your wine, unlocking its full potential.
How does the WineWeaver® aerator work?
When your wine is poured into the WineWeaver® wine aerator, the perforated spout maximises air exposure to naturally weave air into your wine for optimum conditioning. As pressure builds in the base of the spout, the eight precision designed exit holes continue the aeration process by cascading the wine down the inner wall of your wineglass or decanter, using the shape and curve of your glassware to achieve maximum aeration.
Additionally, as the wine is being poured through the WineWeaver®, the unique exterior multi-fins of the wine aerator enable continued airflow to your wine as it exits the spout, whilst maintaining direct and stable contact with your glass or decanter.
This simple, yet effective method of dual aeration allows you to instantly enjoy each and every wine in optimum drinking condition.

Can I only use WineWeaver® with red wine?
No, WineWeaver® can be enjoyed using red, white and even rosé wines. The aeration of red wine is typically more practised, however, the aeration of white wine is becoming increasingly popular with more and more wine drinkers.
Generally, the aeration of red wine will produce more pronounced notes in their overall character, whilst the aeration of white wines will invariably produce a subtler enhancement to their aroma and flavour.
What happens if my guests prefer different wines?
Matching different foods to wine, or entertaining guests with differing personal tastes, is always a challenge for the host. Whilst some prefer heavier full-bodied reds, others prefer a wine with a lighter mouth-feel.
As a WineWeaver® wine aerator allows you to aerate your wine ‘by-the-glass’, this means that each and every wine can be instantly enjoyed in optimum drinking condition, without the need to decant the whole bottle – and for any unfinished bottles, WineWeaver® is the perfect partner for reviving vacuumed and re-sealed wines to enjoy later.

Is there a particular wine glass I should use with the WineWeaver®?
Where do I pour the wine?
Watching the wine cascade down your wine glass can become mesmerising, however, don’t get too carried away in pouring out your wine! Make sure you’ve left enough room in your glass for the remaining wine in the aerator to exit.
