If you have either drank wine before or at least have seen someone drink it, you will probably remember the wine being swirled in the glass. I have always wondered why this was necessary. It turns out that this process is called aeration! It is supposed to improve the taste of the wine by have the undesirable components of the wine evaporate while leaving us with the pleasurable, aromatic ones.
I have found two of my favorite aerators!

Now I already know you will probably complain about the price, but how gorgeous is this?! This beautiful decanter can even be customized. It would be such a great gift for mothers, girlfriends, and/or wedding gift.
