One of the my first entries on the Wellesley Wine Press was a video review of the Vinturi Wine Aerator. In the comments section Heath Stone noted that he'd seen a competing product, the Soirée Wine Aerator, in prominent use at Oregon wineries. When I heard this, I knew I had to go out and procure one of these so I could test it out!
I contacted Soirée at http://www.winesoiree.com and within hours I was contacted by Andrew Lazorchak, one of the principals at Soirée. Great guy. We talked for a while and Andrew agreed to send me a sample of the product so I could do a review. I have to say- I was really impressed with Andrew's responsiveness to my inquiries then and since. Now *that's* how you run a successful business!
Here's the review:
In a future post, I'll be doing a blind tasting which seeks to answer the question: "Which wine aerator works best?"
