Based on the Venturi Flow System of aerating wine during fermentation, the Wine Prism was actually conceived of by a 4-year-old boy. One evening while his parents were enjoying a glass of wine, a young Dominic questioned his father about drinking his wine with a straw as he was doing with his milk. After being told that you want to mix a little bit of air with the wine to better taste and evaluate the wine, Dominic returned from the kitchen with a skewer and announced, “Dad, all you need to do is poke a hole in the straw to let in some air!” Experiments in the lab and by experts in the wine industry have proven the efficacy of the Wine Prism. Since then the Wine Prism has been used in areas of the world from Argentina and Australia to France and Russia.
Totally Cool! Review by Jenny
The Wine Prism bubbles the wine right into your mouth. I've learned more about tasting wine and it's really elegant to have with my other wine related stuff. (Posted on 11/2/2011)
