Proper Technique for Aerating & Decanting Your Wine
The purpose of letting wine breathe, or aerate, is maximizing your wine's exposure to the surrounding air. By allowing the wine to mix and mingle with air, it will typically warm up and the wine's aromas will open up, the flavor will soften a bit and the overall flavor characteristics should improve.

It is a common misconception that upon removing the cork, all bottles of wine need to be given time to breathe. This is not always the case. Not all wines require aeration. However, different wines require different amounts of time. Many wine sellers have experts that are educated on the wine they are selling so it's best to consult them regarding aeration time.

As soon as you open a bottle of wine, pour a small amount into your glass for a taste test. Wine is subjective in that there is no right or wrong flavor. If the wine is to your liking, then it's time to drink!

For wine that has aged for some time, a decanter is highly recommended. Many people simply open their bottle and let it sit. While adequate, it is not ideal. Decanting is a terrific technique for letting newer wines aerate and removing older wines' sediment. Sediment occurs in wine when pigments and tannins within the wine breakdown, leaving behind a harmless but bitter residue. Not only is sediment displeasing to the mouth, it's displeasing to the eye as well.

When decanting a wine with sediment, it's best to let the bottle stand upright, undisturbed for 24 hours. This allows the sediment to collect at the bottom of the bottle. After this allotted time, slowly pour your wine into a cleaned decanter. Observe the wine as it passes through the neck, stopping your pour upon the first sign of sediment.

The final result of this process leaves a decanter of pure wine and a bottle with some sediment-heavy wine left in it. While the remaining un-decanted wine may not taste the best, it makes a great addition to gravy or red sauces. Many wine enthusiasts pride themselves on their ability to find new and exciting uses for sediment-laden wine.

Proper decanting alters wine for the better, softening its bite and developing aromas and flavors more pleasing to the taste buds. Whether 100-years-old or one day, any bottle of wine will benefit from a decanter!

Storing & Preserving Wine
A true wine enthusiast knows that proper preservation technique is tantamount to enjoying a fuller, more fulfilling wine taste. A wine patron will often take greater steps to preserve a more expensive bottle. However, taking the right precautions can make a $10 bottle of wine taste like $30. Adhering to a few tricks can make for better flavor and aroma of your wine.
  • Temperature maintenance is the first step in allowing your bottle to mature to its full potential. Most homes maintain a temperature of 70 degrees with a humidity of roughly 20-30%. Optimal wine storage temperatures call for 55-58 degrees with about 55-75% humidity. To replicate these ideal conditions, a proper cellar or wine refrigerator is recommended.
  • Keep your wine out of sunlight. UV rays are harmful to wine and give it an unpleasant cardboard taste and smell.
  • Keep your wine away from cupboards, cabinets and home refrigerators. The opening and shutting of cabinets and doors cause vibrations that disturb your wine and affect the taste.
  • Store bottles on their sides to keep their corks moist. (When a cork dries, it allows air in that will spoil your wine.) When using a rack, keep your white wine lower on the rack, as heat rises and red wine fairs better in higher temperatures.
  • For storing your wine in the short term, duplicate the conditions of longer-term preservation as best you can.

  • Exterior: Wipe the surface with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use any abrasive cleaners or solvents, as product damage will occur.

    Interior: Do not attempt to clean any inside surfaces of the wine bottle opener or preserver. Store the set on its base in a clean, dry place when it is not in use.
