What does it mean to aerate wine
TL;DR If you aerate wine it tastes better
Aerating wine sounds scientific and maybe even a little scary, but don't worry, we'll walk you through the science behind aerating wine and in 5 minutes or less you'll know your stuff.
As soon as wine comes into contact with the air we are aerating it. To aerate wine means we're adding air to wine (Aerating - Air). Adding air to wine 'speeds up' the aging process, and unlocks flavors and aromas that otherwise will only be released with a little time and a little time and a lot of patience.
It's possible with any wine - red, white and rose too. You don't want to aerate bubbly though, you'll knock out all the bubbles!
