Fountain Aerating Wine Glasses

Whether you are a novice or a seasoned consumer of wine, you probably know that there is one thing that you should do before you drink it and that is to aerate it. By doing so, you will warm the wine, boost its aroma and improve its flavour. And here is something that will help you greatly with that – Fountain Aerating Wine Glasses.

Designed by Dillon Burroughs, the idea for Fountain Aerating Wine Glass was born a few years ago when Dillon and his father were enjoying a bottle of a vintage wine. They wondered why nobody designed a glass that would aerate wine when poured directly into it.

Why should we resort to expensive decanters and dispensers when a cleverly designed glass can do the trick? After receiving patents to protect their idea, Dillon and his father created a company that designs and sells aerating wine glasses.

So, why is Fountain Aerating Glass so special? As we said, if you have this glass, you really don’t need pricey aerating equipment and, as soon as you pour the wine into the glass, it instantly releases the rich bouquet of aromas. This is done thanks to its central cell which allows the wine to freely flow and cascade.
This elegant glass is made from borosilicate glass, its measurements are 8.75 inches (H) x 4.25 inches (diameter) and its capacity 24 oz. Despite its delicate appearance, the glass is dishwasher safe.
