OXIPOUR™

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:

  • to make an aerating function, that can be incorporated with all kind of designs and with different materials
  • to make a function that does not aerate too much – but secures a correct aeration of the wine in order to keep the fine nuances of aroma and flavour
  • to invent something innovative enough to apply for patent

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.

How does it work?

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.

Sommelier's evaluation

  • OxiPour™ is the best functioning product within wine aerators
  • It does not over-aerate the wine, but leaves freshness in the glass which will be appreciated by wine lovers
  • OxiPour™ leaves the wine more open and inviting to the nose, more berries appear, thus the wine is more accessible
  • The flavour becomes more complex and the taste of fruit gets more intense
  • If you swirl the wine in the glass it will reach a further stage, which means OxiPour™ commence the process that you would otherwise have to wait for until the wine would have opened
