How to Aerate Wine (Letting Wine Breathe)
Aeration is the best way to make your wine improve taste. An aerated wine has a bigger and different taste than a non aerated wine. Not all wines need to be aerated, for example - light wines and well aged because there’s no effect on the taste once they’ve been aerated.
Here are 3 steps how to aerate wine:
- Aeration by the glass - Most people swirl their glass after pouring a wine. They let the air flow while swirling the wine. The simplest form of aeration on a glass.
- Aeration by the bottle - This step is best if you want to aerate the whole bottle wine. Simply remove the wine from the bottle and transfer it on a large glass jar or container and let it sit for at least half an hour depending on your taste and how long of aeration do you want.
- Aerator machine - purchase an aerator machine and transfer your wine to the machine, and from there you can directly pour your wine into a glass and it’s already aerated.
Now that you know some simple steps how to aerate your wine, it's time for you to see the difference!
