Vinturi Corkscrew and Wine Aerator {Review}

It’s not secret that many parents enjoy a glass of wine now and then. My hubby and I are no exception. We both enjoy drinking a glass of wine together at the end of a long week and having some good (child-free) conversations. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that up until just recently, we’ve been using the oldest, simple, and broken wine opener. It’s so old that I can barely open a bottle of wine with it and so the task normally falls to my hubby. I was so excited to try the Vinturi traditional lever wine opener. It is a million steps ahead of our old one, which promptly went in the garbage as soon as we opened up this gorgeous one.

Not only is it shiny and beautiful, you can tell it’s a workhorse when it comes to wine openers! It worked like a dream. I am so happy to finally have a decent wine opener. I’m not sure why it took so long for us to throw out our old university-age wine opener, but am I ever glad we did. Whereas opening a corked bottle of wine was previously a massive effort, it’s now super easy and simple. The screw is also non-stick so it doesn’t get stuck, which has always been a problem before. There’s even s a separate foil cutter and replacement screw to make wine opening even easier.

We also received the Vinturi red wine aerator to try out. I’ve often heard that allowing wine to breathe before drinking it improves the taste. The process is normally so time consuming though. Not with Vinturi’s aerator. You hold it over your glass and pour your wine right though. It’s amazingly quick. There’s also a great no-drip stand and filter screen, AND it’s dishwasher-safe. We both took turns trying the wine on its own as well as after pouring it through the aerator, and there was a definite noticeable difference. I haven’t yet used an aerator like this, but it’s pretty cool. Plus, it’s a great little compact size so it doesn’t take up much room in the cupboards. We try to use the aerator now every time we have a glass of red wine.

Thanks to Vinturi, we’re enjoying our parenting glass of wine that much more now.

    How marvelous, I like that you you don’t need much strength to use this. I can’t pull corks out the regular way at all!

    We’re not really wine drinkers, but this looks like a great product!

    I could use this; I have a huge wine collection and am constantly drinking it for dinners, get togethers and also gifting bottles. I could use this… I still use the original corkscrew opener I purchased while in college from the dollar store; I love it for nostalgic value, but its run its course. Thanks.

    These both sound as if they’re in the profi class. I’m not really a wine drinker but I might be if I had both of these 🙂

    What a great duo of products, and would make a nice gift, and I want them, too. I have given up on wine every bottle I have such a hard time with the cork, the pieces of it end up floating in the wine, and then I have a whole bottle to contend with – this is perfect!

    I think that these would be ideal for the members of my family who are wine drinkers – does aerating wine make a big difference?
