Our list of Top 10 Best Wine Aerators is based on common criteria for wine accessories – simple to use, high quality, and a good price. Aerating wine – whether an older vintage or relatively young – significantly improves our enjoyment of it, releasing aromas and tastes only available after the wine has had time to breath. But what if you need to serve a bottle of good wine right away and don’t have time to let it open up? Minimum decanting time for most older wines is about 30 minutes, longer for young wines. Aerators are the way to speed up the breathing process.
Try testing the improvement made by aerating. Pour wine straight from the bottle into a glass, then pour a second glass through an aerator. Sip the non-aerated glass first, then the aerated glass. The benefits should be significantly noticeable.
This list of best wine aerators is dynamic and updated as new products come on the market. Conversely, links that appear next to each product are served by a third party and availability is not always guaranteed. Cheers!
1. Aervana Select
The Aervana Select is used widely in restaurants and winery tasting rooms that feature fine red wines. Simply insert the aerator in the top of the bottle, select the level of aeration desired, then push the button for the aerator to draw wine from the bottle, aerate, and dispense it into a waiting glass. Works with red and white wines and standard 750ml and 1.5l bottles.
2. Vinturi Red Wine Aerator
This very popular and affordable aerator does a great job and can be used to pour wine from the bottle into a glass or decanter. Recommend using primarily to fill a decanter, as pouring directly into a glass is a 2-handed operation and can be a little clumsy. Comes with cap and stand.
3. Vinturi Deluxe Wine Aerator With Stand
Want a convenient way to aerate straight from bottle to glass without risk of spillage? Try the Vinturi Deluxe set that includes a machine-washable stand. The aerator itself is the same Vinturi aerator shown above.
4. JIFAR Electric Wine Aerator Pourer
5. Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer
Bottle-end aerators are the most convenient for pouring straight to the glass and the Vintorio is one of the most popular models. Simply insert and pour. The expanded aeration chamber increases the flow of air and makes for faster pouring.
6. TRIbella Classic Wine Aerator
7. OxyTwister Wine Aerator Pourer
The OxyTwister puts a different twist on bottle-end aerator design. The wide aeration chamber maximizes initial exposure to air, then swirls wine and air together as it travels through the pouring spout and into the glass or decanter.
8. Corkas Wine Aerator
9. Rabbit Wine Aerator
10. TenTen Labs Wine Aerator Pourer
The TenTen Labs product has an aeration chamber with multiple exit holes to increase air exposure in the chamber and as it flows out of the pourer and into a glass or decanter. Two aerators are included in this package.
