trying my vin-aire with a wine alliance quinta-do-judeu-2008

I picked up a new red to try this evening – a Quinta do Juedeu from the Douro.
Quinta do Judeu and Vin-Aire

It says on the bottle to decant, so I decided it was the perfect time to give my Vin-Aire a real try out. And I just got my hair cut, so I made some videos :)
Here’s the vin-Aire in action:

and the verdict on the Vin-Aire:

On the wine – it’s a really nice punchy red wine. I brought it out for Sunday lunch the next day and it went down a treat
with the family. I’m looking forward to trying the white in the range next!

    Great stuff, Brian. Can’t wait to try it.

  2. Thanks Paul,

    Lar used a bit more science than I did :)

  3. Brian,

    Love the work and the plug, it really does help! Ensure you fill the cup on the Vin-Aire for maximum effect, it ensures the wine benefits fully from the aeration process instead of it trickling through. It is a bit hand to eye, but you get used to it and 2012 will see a stand coming!! Watch this space.

    Should you have any questions, please do let me know.

    Regards,

    Phil at Vin-Aire
