Wine Tip of the Week - Just Opening a Bottle is not Enough to Aerate

Most wines will benefit from aeration - such as pouring into a decanter, using an aeration tool...whatever you choose.  But remember, just opening up a bottle is not enough. The small amount of wine in the neck of the bottle that gets exposed to oxygen will not have a noticeable impact on the wine.

If nothing else, go ahead and pour the wine into glasses, and give an occasional swirl to let your wine out to breath a bit before enjoying.
