The connected wine aerator is revolutionizing your tasting

We often talk to you about the good because it is our Leitmotif . Today we decided to tell you about the good one because let's not forget, one and the other go together perfectly. So we're going to talk to you about the wine aerator , does that speak to you?

A connected wine aerator , what funny object can it be? Like every good cook has his set of knives, wine lovers also have their professional equipment.

A wine aerator, but what for?

Putting wine in contact with air is a funny idea, isn't it? It's true that in our daily lives we're not necessarily used to aerating our drinks, it's rare to hear someone say "don't forget to put the water in a carafe so that it breathes a bit, it will give it a good taste”. Often we even wait until the last moment, we leave the water in the fridge so that it is as cool as possible, we close the bottle of sparkling water well to keep the bubbles and we avoid leaving the grenadine open at the risk of take a fly and bee cocktail for the next strawberry diabolo.

Of course, aerating a drink is not part of our daily lives and yet, sometimes you have to think outside the box to make great discoveries. In history, more than one wine lover has looked into the subject in order to discover all the properties of this sweet beverage.

Anyway, back to our topic. It is well known that in contact with air many elements oxidize, especially wine . This article will not enter a scientific journal but to put it simply, it is a chemical reaction involving a transfer of electrons in contact with the oxygen contained in the air. Molecules are transformed, such as ethanol, which becomes ethanal . If you are passionate about the subject, here is an article that will arouse your curiosity .

It is by oxidation that vinegar is created , the oxidation of ethanal transforms it into lactic acid and that's it. Making a vinaigrette with Châteauneuf-du-Pape is therefore possible, even at home. If you want to prevent this from happening, remember to close the bottle tightly, but be careful not to push the cork too far, Maurice !

At first glance, we would therefore tend to say that oxygenation is necessarily bad and that we want to avoid it at all costs. In reality, a light and controlled oxygenation improves the wine , it releases the aromas and softens the tannins . It's not for nothing that dad opened the bottle of wine 2 hours before the meal, he didn't make himself a soft glass, he aerated it so that the wine developed its aromas and revealed the best part of itself to the tasting . Depending on the type of wine , it must be aired more or less long in advance, sometimes even 24 hours, so it takes organization. Young wines are very fond of aeration before being served because it allows them to develop their aromatic bouquet and sit at the table of the great .

To aerate the wine, we put it in contact with the air, and for that, we often use what is called a decanter . You can also call it the pitcher , the carafe , the bottle , the gourd or the container , it's up to you to see what name you want to give it. Let's not get into the same type of debate as pain au chocolat VS chocolatine.

A wine carafe

The carafe is very nice, in addition to its practical function of aerating and decanting the wine , it is a design object which makes a good impression on the table and which also helps to serve without staining the neighbour's clothes. . If you find it difficult to serve wine from the bottle without putting it everywhere, there are also pourers with anti-drip systems to keep the neck and the table clean. It's a little gift idea that we give you if you ever run out, if you want others around wine like a bottle holder or a thermometer , go for this article .

For rosé wines and white wines , swirling your wine glass may suffice as these wines need less aeration. In addition between us, swirling your glass has its little effect with the public, launch the moove you will see, everyone will follow your movement.

Today we are not talking to you about the bluetooth speaker , nor about Alexa which opens the shutters even before being woken up, nor about a car that moves on its own, but of a connected wine aerator . You can't stop progress, even in wine!

In a world where everything goes too fast all the time, let's take the time to breathe a little and let go. But then, what is a connected object doing in today's article if the goal is to take a step back?

The good news about the Connected Wine Aerator is that it doesn't take you to Facebook , or Instagram , or the moon for that matter (sorry, dreamers), but a wine app . Log in when it's for a good cause, we validate!

The concept is simple, you scan the label of your bottle on an application that recognizes it and then it tells you the ideal aeration time . Then all you have to do is enter this time on the aerator and you're done. Simple as pie, even auntie simone who had trouble connecting to his mailbox could manage it! Immediately connected to the application, immediately disconnected, because once you have collected the information, you can close everything, put your phone aside and enjoy your moment of pleasure without being disturbed. The dream, no?

You have to admit one thing, the telephones and the permanent connection have their faults but it's also good, and when the good ends up in the glass, it's a winning combo. Often everything goes rather well when accompanied by parsimony and moderation.

So, are you ready to step into the shoes of a sommelier and delight your guests with good organic wines ? Treat yourself to our white wines , red wines and rosé wines , all organic, vegan and pesticide-free .
