Wine Aerators

Aerating is a fancy way of saying you're  exposing a wine to air . It begins the moment you unseal the wine, continues as you pour the wine into a glass, and further as you swirl and sip. Exposing a wine to air triggers both oxidation and evaporation. The Aerator pourer aerates wine as it is poured, improving the quality and flavor of red wine. At The Merry Peddler, we sell a few different kinds- The Rabbit being our top seller! It's resigned to fit all bottle types and is extremely easy to use: just uncork a bottle, insert the super aerator, and pour.
