Do you have a wine-drinker you are buying for this holiday season? I’ve got an idea that is perfect for gift giving — even if you don’t know how to pick a great wine or if you don’t know what kind of wine he/she might like best. And if you are experienced with wines and feel confident giving wine as a gift, you’ll love this too! It’s a perfect addition to a great bottle of wine.
VinoVinti is a carbonic acid extractor that gives wine drinkers hands-on control over the flavors and finish of their favorite wines.
In about 20 – 30 seconds for a full bottle of wine, carbon dioxide is removed from the wine, giving it years of smoothness in seconds. Watch this video to learn how it works:
While I drink wine (my favorite are white wines), my daughter is relatively new to wines and doesn’t have a favorite yet, so I thought this would be a great time to try out the VinoVinti. We haven’t hung out one-on-one lately, so we planned a fun “girls night” for just the two of us.
Since I’m behind on one of my favorite shows, Downton Abbey, and need to catch up before the next season starts in January. I picked up the Downton Abbey Season 3 on DVD, plus a groceries to make some yummy snacks.
I like white wine, so I chose a new white wine blend that looked good, plus a new red wine, Mirassou Sunset Red. We paired it with some cheeses (mostly swiss cheese), plus a delicious cranberry cheese ball.
We also enjoy some artichoke dip with garlic and parmesan cheese.
While I had the white wine, we ended up drinking the red wine more. We sipped a bit of it before we used the VinoVinti, to get a “before and after” feel for it. After our sips of the “before” wine, we used the VinoVinti to pump the carbon dioxide out and poured a glass. There was a noticeable difference in the flavor and feel of our red wine. It was pretty awesome — the process was so simple. I’m not a very experienced or sophisticated wine drinker, so I wondered if I would notice a difference, so I was thrilled when I realized it did.
If you have someone on your holiday shopping list that loves wine, this is the perfect gift idea — and it works with both red and white wines, so it’s great no matter what their preference is. Head on over to the VinoVinti store to pick one up for all of your wine-loving friends and family — and don’t forget to treat yourself too. I used the VInoVinti for our Thanksgiving dinner and plan to use it for our Christmas events too.
I’d love to hear from you — leave me a comment! Will you be buying for a wine drinker this holiday season? Why would you love a VinoVinti for Christmas?
