What is aeration?

Most red wines require aerating. The traditional method of aeration is decanting where the red wine is poured into a glass decanter.

Fully exposing the red wine to the air accelerates the softening (oxidization) of the more bitter tannins in the wine and removes off-flavors from long storage. Softening of the tannins reduces the bitterness.

Suggestions :

Please note that if you wish to enjoy a red wine with full-bodied aroma, a mellow taste, complex layers and a lingering after-taste, the effect of aeration will be more obvious if you select red wines from grape varieties or growing regions with "strong tannins". For example : Grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Nebbiolo, Montepulciano, Malbec, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Sagrantino ; and growing regions such as Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone Valley, Barolo, Barbaresco, Rioja, Jumilla, Napa and Chianti.
Product considerations

1. We suggest that you run clean water through the Vinaera before first use. The product is designed to seal on a standard wine bottle mouth opening and will only push water through the tube and spout if used in a sealed state. To clean, first follow the assembly instructions below and then skip to the clean and store section for cleaning instructions before first use. Attention : This product is not waterproof. Do not wash with water.
2. This product is not waterproof, Holding this product at an angle or upside down will damage its electronic components.
3. Holding this product at an angle or upside down may cause liquid to leak and damage the electronic components.
4. To avoid the clogging of product tubing by dried red wine : Please follow the “cleaning and store p.12” to wash and dry this product after each use.
5. The mesh should be cleaned with clean water. If the contaminant on the mesh still does not come off, soak the mesh in water for 3-5 minutes then clean with a soft brush.
6. The product incorporates a water pump. If the product is switched on without any liquid passing through, "tiny amounts of liquid" in the pump might lead to the mechanism producing more sound. This is normal. Solution : Place the unit in a well-ventilated area. The noise will be reduced when the mechanism is thoroughly dry.
7. Each bottle of red wine may be filled to different levels by the winery. In a very small minority cases, over-filled bottles may overflow when the Vinaera electric wine aerator is installed. This is normal.
8. As a reminder, not all red wines need to be aerated. If you use the Vinaera electric wine aerator with a wine with less tannin content its effect will not be as obvious. This is normal.
9. Because of the indented base shape of most wine bottles, a fully dispensed bottle using Vinaera will leave 1-2 ounces (50ml) of wine in the bottle.
10.The Air Intake Adjustment Knob (e.) can only be rotated through 120°. Over-turning the knob may lead to damage.
11.When the bottle is nearly empty and the liquid level of the red wine approaches the Filter Mesh (h.), air mixed with a small amount of red wine may spray from the spout. To avoid this situation, please keep the center of the glass near the spout so that the remaining red wine does not drip onto your table.
12.The red wine aeration time and effect mentioned in this manual was obtained through testing by professionals with UK and US sommelier qualifications. The tests compared the Vinaera adjustable electric wine aerator with conventional decanters found on the market. Actual results may vary depending on the sommelier and equipment.。
13. Once you have finished using this product : When the product is removed from the bottle neck, please remove the Telescoping Tube and wait 3-5 seconds to let any remaining liquid flow black into the bottle instead of dripping on the table.
14. This product can be installed on any international standard red wine bottle (internal diameter of 18.5mm at the mouth). Do not attempt to force this product into red bottles with a "smaller" mouth.
15.If your wine is aerated for longer than it should be then there may be a hint of acetic acid in the taste of the red wine. This is normal. If this happens, rotate the Air Intake Adjustment Knob to the left(-)to correct this problem.。
