Soiree bottle-top Wine Decanter & Aerator
Usually ships in 1 business days|
The Soiree is a wine accessory that fits into any standard corked wine bottle allowing you to pour, without dripping, directly through the Soiree. Once you place the Soiree in the wine bottle, the Soiree aerates your wine as you pour it. The Soiree allows you to decant just the portion of wine you want-a glass or a carafe. The Soiree can also be used to pour the wine into a decanter, further expediting the "opening" of your wine. The Soiree has dimples in the glass increasing the surface area of the glass which not only agitate the wine, but infuse more oxygen in the wine. Soiree is a bottle-top wine aerator. Soiree fits securely into any wine bottle allowing you to pour, without dripping directly through the Soiree. By pouring wine with a Soiree, the Soiree creates an intermediary stage where the wine is infused with oxygen and then cascades into your glass. In using the Soiree to aerate your wine, you will notice the subtleties and character of the wine emerge immediately upon entering your glass. Soiree delivers a truly "open" wine just by pouring through it.

Effective and Easy to Use Dec 18, 2008
By Robert Dwyer
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R22IXYA63L0QRF The Soiree is an on-the-bottle wine aerator/decanter. It provides one-hand operation and aerates wine differently than competing products. Rather than passing the wine through a narrow chamber and injecting air into the wine, the Soiree achieves aeration by relying on the tendency liquids have to adhere to surfaces- effectively exposing much of the wine to air while pouring. In a 4-way blind tasting I conducted with 3 tasters of varying degrees of familiarity with wine, the Soiree finished first. Enjoy this video and let me know what you think with comments- I will check back and follow up.

Best Wine Aerator Mar 31, 2010
By W. Black
I got interested in aerators after experiencing a blind taste test with the Vinturi at a winery. I couldn't really see that the Vinturi was adding a lot of surface air to the wine, but the taste difference was striking. I Googled around a lot and found that people didn't like the Vinturi because it requires two hands and careful pouring (causing spills), and it's not really easy to clean.
I found a comparative review at an online wine site, where they tested I think five different aerators. They judged that the Soiree produces the best tasting wine, and gave the Vinturi a very close second. The others tested all came in a lot lower than these two.
I picked the Soiree because I like the bottle-top functioning, and I think the large-surface-area technology is better than what the Vinturi has. It's also very easy to rinse out after use. In using the Soiree you turn the bottle vertical, so the wine flows out in a thin sheet all over the insides of the glass sphere, exposing it to lots of air.
The only thing I don't like about the Soiree is that a tablespoon or so of aerated wine flows back into the bottle after each pour. Fine if you're going to drink the bottle in one setting, but maybe not so good if you're going to put half the bottle in the fridge for tomorrow. Maybe I'm being too neurotic about that.

Bought it as a gift...now I am going to buy it for me!!!! Jun 26, 2010
By Rhonda Williams
I bought this item as a gift for a friend. She received 2 aerators, the Soiree from me and the Vinturi from her parents, so we decided to do a side by side taste test to compare. The soiree won hands down, and the Vinturi was returned! We all agreed that the Soiree did a fabulous job of opening up the wine, much better than the Vinturi. The only fear on my friend's part was that it is made of glass and not acrylic, and she is not kind to glass and was convinced that she would break it---well so far so good, it is still intact. I have since broken my beautiful Wine Enthusiast decanter, so am going to replace it with the Soiree---was just waiting for an excuse to buy it---and here it is!

Does what it claims and easily. Oct 22, 2009
By Gioco Carta
I am suspicious of products that have high "gimmick" potential but this one works. I still prefer to decant and wait a few hours but when you forget this does it in few seconds. I actually can tell no difference. It passes the test of my Italian friends who are even more suspicious of gadgets like this.

Excellent ! Oct 03, 2009
By J. Day
Great product! I did a few taste tests with it. First drinking a little bit of wine without using it, and then putting the Soiree on the bottle and taking another sip of wine that was poured via Soiree. And WOW, i definitely notice a difference! it makes the wine much smoother and more velvet-y. It reduces that acidic "bite" that some wines have. Or makes the taste less alcohol-y. I really enjoy using the Soiree! I have purchased two more as Birthday/Christmas gifts. I have given one of them already (the b-day one obviously..) and my friend absolutely loves it too.
