Proper aeration is key to getting the most aroma and flavor out of your wine. Aeration can make a cheap bottle of wine taste like an expensive one, and without aeration you are not getting the most enjoyment from an expensive bottle.
Unfortunately, aeration takes time. Exposing wine to air via a decanting vessel can take several hours. Let's face it- by the time you open a bottle of wine you want to drink it NOW.
This simple instructable makes use of a High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) paint sprayer to atomize your wine instantly. Atomization exposes wine to the air in tiny droplets, increasing the surface area that is exposed to air exponentially, and making aeration almost instantaneous.
Step 1: Materials
2) HVLP Paint Sprayer (clean, unused is preferable)
3) Big Food Grade Ziploc Baggie
Step 2: Ready
Pour wine into sprayer container
Step 3: Set
Spray wine into bag, or into a food grade bucket, or some other container.
Step 4: Enjoy
Now your wine is perfectly, instantly aerated. Pour it back into the bottle, or into a decanter, or right into the glass.
Repeat steps 1-3 as needed. I recommend frequent and often!
