For When You're Not Drinking Straight From The Bottle

"The Trevi Aerating Wine Glass is made for those who take their wine seriously. It uses a unique aerating system to accentuate the taste and smell of the beverage. Inspired by the Trevi Fountain in Rome, Italy, it has a mini glass within a bigger one to siphon the wine through, just like a fountain."

where do you put the ice? a friend wants to know.

@roboloki One in each nostril. The wine is "aerated" further after you choke on it and it comes out your nose.

@C_Webb hahaha just wanted to double thumbs-up that one.

I'm a card-carrying wine snob, meaning I have thoughts and even FEELINGS about aeration. But this is fucking stupid. Really fucking stupid.

@wb Why can't they just put the wine in one of those cyclone bottles like they do for Miller Lite?

whizz_dumb (#10,650)

@SeanP "cyclone bottles" reminds me of those science fair staples where 2-liters make tornadoes. They could make a high end one of those. WINE TORNADO! This is how we get dude-bros into drinking wine.

Meh. The coins will get stuck in there.

@Smitros : Also, pigeons.

I forget how I saw this, but Bon Appetit ran a test on the aerator via a blind tasting with a handful of sommeliers. Verdict: not so great!

So just go ahead and spend that money on more wine, people.

Even dumber than the glasses is that site. "Trendhunter?" WTF? And it doesn't seem like you can even buy these things, anyway.

Still waiting for that "wide-mouthed" wine bottle.
