Choosing a Wine Aerator that’s best for you
There are many different types of wine aerator on the market today and they all have their individual claims to fame. However, there is only one wine aerator – WineWeaver, which is designed to work in perfect harmony with the size, shape and curve of your wine glass to deliver unparalleled aeration results.
The Vinturi (sometimes spelt Venturi) and Decantus aerators for instance, have to be awkwardly hand-held over your glass whilst the other hand holds and pours the bottle of wine. The wine is poured through the aerator and is delivered straight to the bottom of the glass, thus bypassing the most important design feature of any wine glass – the shape and size of the curve.
As all sommeliers know, you pour a wine into the curve of a glass for the best results. Riedel, Schott, Spiegelau and many other wine glass manufacturers have all designed their glasses around this premise, and continue to do so. However, many of the existing single-glass wine aerators, such as the Vinturi and Decantus, seem to offer the same technology, which excludes the glass.
Another wine aerator, the Rabbit Pourer, developed by Metrokane, has tried hard to capture the growing ‘wine by-the-glass’ market. Whilst this aerator provides a new twist on an old idea, it still doesn’t harmonise with the contours of your wineglass. You place the aerator in the neck of the bottle and pour the wine as you would normally; the wine enters the aerating chamber, then exits through the nozzle, down into your glass.
However, WineWeaver is a revolutionary new wine aerator with a super-lightweight design and Unique Adjustable Delivery System (ADS) that has been specifically engineered to work in perfect harmony with today’s glassware, such as Riedel, Spiegelau, Dartington, Waterford, Nachtmann and many others. In essence, WineWeaver offers by the glass aeration.
WineWeaver offers easy to use handsfree technology that can be adjusted to suit your glass (or decanter for that matter), thus ensuring that a wine poured through WineWeaver is delivered directly to the contours of your wineglass to be combined as an integral step of the aeration process.

Did you know that whilst our wine aerator- ‘WineWeaver’ – is spelt with only one word using two capital W’s, it is commonly misspelt as two words – ‘Wine Weaver’. ‘Aeration’ is also commonly misspelt as ‘airation’, ‘aereation’ or even ‘airiation’ !
