This post brought to you by VinoVinti. All opinions are 100% mine.
One of my very first blog posts was about hosting a wine and cheese party. I enjoy a tasty glass of wine and don’t care if it’s white, red, dry, sweet, sparkling or robust. I typically drink red just so I can claim I’m drinking wine for the health benefits, but the truth is that I’m not a wine snob nor a wine aficionado so I’ll drink anything that tastes good to me.
The only thing I don’t like is when wine has a harshness to it, that bite that makes you pucker your face when you taste it. I also don’t like spending a fortune on wine and I don’t like having to search all over for a particular brand or type of wine. So, most of the wine you will find if you visit me is purchased at the grocery store for under $10. I’m pretty sure some wine connoisseur or sommelier is choking on their 2006 Backus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (yes, I just googled “best high-end red wine” to come up with that) at my wine ignorance, but I don’t drink wine to impress others (a point that is made clear each time I drink just a half a glass too much and all of a sudden think I can sing).
Wine Related Gifts
Because my friends know that I like wine, I have received many useful wine-related gifts such as wine glasses, bottle openers, wine journals, cork holders, and bottle stoppers. However, I recently heard about a wine accessory that I don’t own but am dying to try and I thought I would share the information with all of you in case you or someone you know enjoys wine as much as I do.
Carbonic Acid Extractor
The product is called VinoVinti and it is a carbonic acid extractor. I know, you’re thinking to yourself, “What in the world is a carbonic acid extractor?” If you aren’t wondering that because you already know, you may be too smart to be visiting this website. Perhaps you got here by mistake when you were searching for “Wondoola Wallabies” (yes, that required another Google search)?
For the rest of you, a carbonic acid extractor is a specially engineered ceramic rod and vacuum pump. I’m not an engineer so I don’t know exactly how it works, but it somehow gets the carbon dioxide in the wine to form a bubble and escape which is apparently a good thing because it results in a better-tasting, smoother wine.
And while you may have to be a scientist to understand how it works, you don’t have to be a scientist to work it. See for yourself:
That’s right, in 20-30 seconds you can easily treat an entire bottle of wine and improve its flavor and finish. I hope Santa brings me one for Christmas so that I can use it on my bargain wine and fool all my guests into thinking I all of a sudden started splurging on fine wine! You don’t have to let Santa get the credit with your wine-loving friends or family members though. You can order a VinoVinti today and be a gift-giving superstar.
And if you are as impressed with VinoVinti as I am, be sure to stop by and like VinoVinti on Facebook.
