Metrokane Rabbit Aerating Pourer - Review

Even Wine Needs to Breathe

Metrokane's Rabbit Aerating Pourer gives wine a little air to breathe, so that its full aromas and flavors can come out

Metrokane's Rabbit Aerating Pourer fits directly into the bottleneck to avoid spillage

Perhaps you've seen people at wine tastings swirling the liquid around in their glass before sniffing and tasting it? They're aerating the wine, literally giving it a little air to breathe, so that its full aromas and flavors can come out. While swirling an ounce or two of wine in your glass may work fine at a tasting, you'll probably want to do things differently at home. We prefer to use Metrokane's new Rabbit Aerating Pourer. Like Metrokane's other wine accessories, the Electric Rabbit Corkscrew and Rabbit Wine Tool Kit, this one is affordable and well-designed. It fits directly into the bottleneck, so there's much less chance of spillage, especially after you've had a few glasses. With a plastic top that easily pops off, it's also easy to clean. So next time you uncork a bottle of red wine, use the Rabbit Aerating Pourer and allow your wine to breathe. And at this low price, you'll breathe easier, too.
