WINE AERATORS PROMOTION

Customers who purchase any 5 Limited Editions kits in total will receive a Vinturi Wine Aerator at no charge! Retail value of the Aerator is $49.95.

There is a limited amount available, so this promotion is 1 per customer only.

Wine which has been allowed to breathe tastes better. As wine breathes, it opens up and releases its intended aromas and flavours. Traditionally, decanters were used to aerate wine. However, decanting is time consuming, cumbersome, and inconvenient. Vinturi's design speeds up this process with ease and convenience. Perfect aeration in the time it takes to pour a glass, offering better bouquet, enhanced flavours, and smoother finish!

Vinturi Wine Aerator Review by 100BestWines.com

If you are trying to unlock the complexities of your wine, then the Vinturi Aerator is the key! At

100BestWines.com, we are constantly on the lookout for ways to enhance and improve the enjoyment of wine, in this case discovering a simple yet effective invention that rapidly improves the taste of wine without years of aging or hours of decanting. We recently purchased this item to test, and upon receiving same, it was quickly apparent that substantial design and engineering went into the concept of this wine accessory. Simply put, because of a design that speeds up the fluid flow, as wine moves through the Venturi, a low pressure condition is created that allows air from two adjacent holes to be 'sucked into' the wine stream, all without the aid of a pump or any external device. Truly unique!” Michael Zanatta, freelance writer & wine connoisseur.

Extra Limited Editions for those who missed the deadline! Give us a call to be put on the list for the next three wines – February ~ Australian Petit Verdot. March ~ Pacific Quartet.

April ~ Italian Brunello. The two January wines are now available in-store: South African Shiraz and California Lake County Trio Blanca. We just received a new shipment, so come on in to The Home of the Award Winning Wines, and take advantage of this great offer! Every one of these wines historically has won major international awards.

OUR NEW WEBSITE

Our new website is up and running! Check it out at www.thehomevintner.com We have had lots of “hits” with very positive feedback!

UPDATE ON MURRAY

We have been keeping in touch with Murray, and the good news is that he is doing a lot better. He is now able to get out for his morning walks, and his back injury and eyesight are improving! He greatly appreciated all your well wishes that we delivered to him when we visited his home. We wish him continued good health and happiness in his retirement.

NEW STAFF AT THE HOME VINTNER

We are pleased to announce we have some new faces at The Home Vintner! Ron Goodhew and Dave Smyth bring with them a wealth of knowledge. Ron has been a winemaker for many years, and Dave is not only a winemaker but is skilled in the area of promotional events. Dave will be in charge of organizing promotional events with groups and organizations, especially those looking to have a fund raising event. Our past fund raisers have included such evenings as cheese, chocolate and wine pairings; wine and food pairings; wine appreciation evenings; how to judge wine, etc. Or, give us a call on behalf of your group or organization with any other ideas!
