Ask Ms. Metrokane
Let's face it; the world of wine and bar accessories can be pretty daunting. To make it easier, we're launching a new Q&A that will appear semi-regularly called "Ask Ms. Metrokane".
Please feel free send us all your wine and bar accessory related questions and we'll do our best to answer them.
Dear Ms. Metrokane,
I was hoping that you'd be able to help me. I met a man at a party the other night and we were super attracted to each other. Except for the fact that he kept twirling his glass of red wine! Now I know that this is probably considered chic and sophisticated in some circles, but to me it just looked kind of pretentious. Should I tell the guy that I'm just not interested? Or can you suggest something?

Dear Miss I Hate Twirling,
No need to dump the lad! Just get him a Rabbit Aerating Pourer! At just $30 its not too much of an investment. This way your guy won't need a decanter or a separate aerator (so awkward to hold above the glass as you pour). Simply insert the Rabbit Aerating Pourer into a wine bottle as you would a conventional pourer. When you pour the wine, you see and hear aeration happening. When he tastes it, he'll you enjoy the enhanced flavor and bouquet of perfectly aerated red wine and he'll look at you with love in his eyes!
If you're not yet sure he's worth the investment, try the Rabbit Swish On-Glass Aerator priced at just $20.00. All you do is place the Rabbit Swish Aerator on a wine glass and pour red wine through it. You create a "wine shower" right in the glass to soften the wine, improve its taste and enhance its bouquet. The Rabbit Swish also has a fine-mesh screen that removes sediment that may settle in fine wines. So tell him to forget the twirling! Every red wine tastes better when you "swish it."
