How Does Dionysus Work?
The sourness and astringency of wine comes from the grape skins during the wine making processes. Grape skin contains a phenolic substance called tannic acid. Aerating and decanting can greatly enhance the smoothness and taste of wine. Aerating wine allows for compounds like sulfites to evaporate while the exposure to oxygen rounds out acidity and opens up richer aromas.
The wine flows down the sides of the glass grape, increasing contact with oxygen.
The wine flows into the venturi injector, sucking in additional air through the small holes due to the pressure difference, further mixing the wine with oxygen.
