Happy Wine Wednesday Oenophiles! Gotta love Wine Wednesday’s right? As you know, I am always on the hunt for exciting new products and when I discover new products that make wine taste better, look better or offer great portability options, that makes me very happy 🙂 Today, I am sharing two fabulous wine related products that I have been using and enjoying since the summer time, so I figured it was about time that I shared these babies with you. Enjoy and Cheers!
Soiree Wine Aerator is an in-bottle wine aerator that fits into the top of most wine bottles and allows you to decant just the portion of wine you want to drink, whether it is a glass of wine or a full bottle. The Soiree has dimples inside the decanter which increases the surface area inside, and not only agitates the wine, but also infuses more oxygen into it. Pouring your wine through the Soiree allows you to notice the subtleties and character of the wine immediately, rather than waiting for the wine to breathe and open up on its own.
Why do I love the Wine Soiree? Because it REALLY works and allows my wine to reach its optimal flavor much more quickly; it’s much more affordable than it’s competitors at around $20 each; and it looks really chic and cool when you pour wine from it (your friends will be impressed!) I have been using my Soiree for a while now and I just love it because it really makes a difference in how my wine tastes. I have even done side-by-side comparisons with the Soiree aeration and without, and I totally notice a difference! If you like big full bodied red wines, but hate the breathing wait times, this product is for you!
govino is a portable, chic, stemless plastic wine glass with a unique ergonomic thumb-notch which makes wine swirling and sniffing easy and effortless. These glasses are shatterproof, recyclable and perfect for a picnic or outdoor use. Govino glasses are made from a proprietary, food-safe, pharmaceutical-grade polymer that reflects a wine’s color and projects its aromatics much like a crystal glass. However, make sure to hand wash these glasses becasue the high heat in some dishwasher’s may warp them.
Why do I love govino glasses? They make wine drinking on the go super easy and chic looking without compromising the ability to maximize the wine’s character with the right glass. And trust me, I am rather picky about using the right glass to drink my wine out of because it totally adds to the appeal and romance of the experience. I really like the look and feel of these reusable glasses and am thrilled they make govino champagne flutes too! And because they are super affordable at about $13 for a set of four, they make a delightful hostess gift too.
