OxiPour™ is a wine aerator offering gentle aeration to your wine.
The product was developed in 2008 by IDEAS Denmark A/S. It is a patented invention: European patent: DK/EP 2174881 and U.S. patent: US 8,413,585.
The development of OxiPour™ started with very specific objectives:
We tested ALL products in the market – and we made numerous prototypes.
At last we ended up with something quite simple – a gasket with a hollow pipe and 6 elongated slots.
We took our prototypes to the Danish sommelier, Christian Aarø, and asked him to test our OxiPour™ invention. After few modifications he made a blind test with various famous market products, and OxiPour™ came out as “Best in test”.
OxiPour™ is a patented innovation by IDEAS Denmark A/S.
OxiPour™ optimizes the mixing between liquid and air through the hollow pipe and the 6 elongated slots.
The shape of the slots creates a swirling flow path, contributing to a correct aeration of the wine.
The inner construction of optimizes the interface between liquid and air when pouring the wine.
The blue bubbles and arrows indicate the intake of air - and the red drops and arrows indicate the liquid outlet.
