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 five minutes and you'll know your stuff.
As soon as wine comes into contact with air, we are aerating it. To aerate wine means we're adding air to wine. 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 lot of patience.
You can do it with any wine - red, white, and rosé too. You don't want to aerate a bubbly though, you'll knock out all the bubbles!
