We’re on to Number 6 in our countdown of Christmas 2017 Top 10 Wine Gift Ideas. Sulfites occur in all wine, even European wines although many European countries do not require sulfite advisories on their labels like those required in the United States. The Üllo Wine Purifier (pronounced “ooo-low”) filters sulfites and sediment from wine while also aerating.
Sulfites are sometimes blamed for the headache component of hangovers – but that is a myth. Sulfites can cause athsma symptoms in about 1% of the U.S. population, causing those effected to avoid drinking wine. Removing sulfites, a natural preservative, makes the wine drinkable for that 1%, but shortens the shelf life of the wine. Purifiers that capture sulfites right before drinking can solve the problem. The Üllo filter fits in the top of the decanter that comes with it or can be placed over a glass so that those sensitive to sulfites can share a bottle with those who are not. Since the Üllo also removes sediment, its filter element is disposable.
Many new items are being added to our Wine Accessory Shop for Christmas and you will find each of the Top 10 gift ideas there, along with many other great wine accessories.
