What is “Decanting Wine” ?

Most of wines need breathing. The traditional way is through decanting to aerate wine – aerating by pouring a wine into a traditional decanter bottle. A fully opened wine softens the bitter tannins in some reds through oxidation and also releases the full flavor, overtones, and aromas that are locked in the un-aerated wine. Now, you can fully experience the real value of wine.

Basic Concept of Decanting:

In Europe, people would open the wine bottle 1 hour before the meals to wait for the red wine open up and show more aromas and flavors.

More than 80% of the table wine or young wine on the market, the aeration time is about 45-60 minutes; More than 90% of the wines on the market that aeration time is within 0-180 minutes.

Aeration is a key to open up the aromas in red wine. It is the beginning to enjoy the natural flavor of a bottle of red wine.

Aeration is important for wine with heavier tannins. Though varietals are not determinate of tannin levels, these are some of the varietals and wine regions where heavier tannins and high acidity are common : Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Nebbiolo, Montepulciano, Malbec, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Sagrantino for varietals; Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone Valley Barolo, Barbaresco, Rioja, Jumilla, Napa, Chianti for wine regions.

Wipe clean and dry and store in the base of the Vinaera PRO(MV7).

20. Is wine going to "go bad" or deteriorate faster when dispensed by Vinaera(MV7/MV62/MV6)?

Our patented design provides high speed aeration with the ideal mix of air and wine. It is the natural oxidation or the “opening up” process. It is the same process that occurs in a glass decanter, only accelerated by the forced mixing of air with your wine as it is dispensed to your glass.

  • Because Vinaera PRO has softened the bitter tannins, it tastes smoother, so you will feel the taste a bit lighter! This is
    aeration!

    the bitter tannin in some reds through oxidation and also release the full flavor, overtones, and aromas that are locked
    in the un-aerated wine.

  1. The aeration time for most wines on the market is for 0-180 minutes. If your wine is in this aeration level, it is quite
    suitable to use Vinaera PRO.
  2. At present, New Age wine accounts for more than 80%. There is not much red wine that really needs to aerate for more
    than 180 minutes. Our design is to make it possible for most consumers to “fast” enjoy the red wine in a busy age.
  3. It is like people who drink traditional Chinese tea. They feel that the tea in the convenience store (CVS) is not good,
    but the tea sold by CVS is the most convenient for consumers; it is also like the Europeans enjoy Espresso as
    slowly-liviing culture. In the United States, it became a brand chain coffee shop, providing good coffee to consumer
  • We understand that Vinaera PRO is a revolution and a challenge for wine culture. To face the current busy lifestyles
    around the world, our products are effective for instant aerating and bringing convenience to people.

23. There is some bubbles in the wine right after using Vinaera(MV7/MV62/MV6).

This is normal. After about 15 seconds, the bubbles will naturally disappear. If the bubbles didn’t disappear, it is possible that your red wine is mixed with water.

24. Will the wine be over aerated with an electric win aerator?

  • If your wine don’t need to aerate, turn the control knob to (-). At this position, Vinaera PRO won’t inject air. It will
    become a convenient dispenser. It also can open the aroma in the wine effectively through high-speed flowing.
  • If the mixed air is too much to cause the wine over aerated, the taste will have a slight acetic acid taste. Just adjust the
    knob to (-) counterclockwise to find the desired aeration level.

25. Does Vinaera(MV7/MV62/MV6) have a preservation function?

It has basic preservation function for about 2-3 days… But be careful: the red wine storage temperature is 16-18° C. If the room temperature is high, we recommend to use the wine stopper and then put it in the refrigerator.

Most of the quantitative wines are used in commercial applications. The original development of this product is not a consideration of the commercial environment, so there is no this function.

27. I drink cheap wine, do I still need to aerate?

In Europe, the “table wine” is poured into the glass decanter in 60 minutes before the meal, and the wine is awaked up when dining. There may be such a statement in some countries, probably the table wine has less tastes, so no need to aerate! But in fact, the cheap wine has tannins, and you can really feel the flavor of this wine after you aerating. Using Vinaera(MV7/MV62/MV6) to the table wine, we believe the effect will be quite good!

28. Will there be any residual taste after using this product?

Vinaera(MV7/MV62/MV6) is the same as general food equipment. After use, just flush out the piping with clean water. If you want to improve the cleaning effect of flushing with water, add a little lemon juice or vinegar to the rinsing water in the bottle.
