Usage - Vintorio Wine Aerator PourerUpdated 2 years ago

How do I use the Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer?

Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer Usage:

1. Gently connect the air tube to the main pourer unit. Little to no force should be applied when connecting these two parts as the air tube may break if put under significant pressure.

2. Insert the Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer vertically into your bottle of wine with the pouring end pointing upwards. For easy insertion, wipe the rubber gasket with a damp piece of cloth before inserting the Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer into the bottle.

3. Pour your wine and listen to the bubbling sounds that are made as the wine flows through the aerator. This indicates your wine is thoroughly being aerated.

4. Enjoy your glass of perfectly aerated wine!

To use your aerator like a pro, try tasting your wine right after you open the bottle, 10 minutes, and 30 minutes after opening the bottle. You will notice that your wine tastes different every time. Now you know when your favorite wine tastes best.

Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer Re-assembly:

1. Make sure that the clear spout is pointing down (with the Vintorio Logo facing up) and the three air holes on the black plastic flow regulator unit are also facing up. * The clear acrylic piece and the black flow regulator unit will not create a leak-free seal if this is not done properly.

2. Align the rectangular nodes on the bottom end of the clear acrylic spout with the grooves on the top opening of the black flow regulator and put the two units together.

3. Hold the black plastic flow regulator unit in place and twist the clear acrylic pour spout clockwise to fasten the two units.

4. Connect the air tube to the main pourer unit and your Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer is ready to be used.

How does the Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer work?

The Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer’s aerating chamber injects air bubbles directly into the wine, instantly releasing aromas and flavors. You can actually see the air bubbles in the wine being poured! For more in-depth information as to why you should aerate your wine, please visit this link.

To clean, simply twist and detach the acrylic spout from the flow regulator. Rinse all pieces under warm water.
