PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Velv™ Wine Oxygenator is set to transform the wine industry by providing wine lovers a taste experience unlike any they’ve had before. Its proprietary PUREOXYGEN™ technology gently circulates 99.5 percent pure oxygen into the wine, opening its aroma, softening its mouthfeel and revealing its true flavor—in just a few minutes. No other method or product can achieve the same soft and silky flavor. And it’s available for pre-purchase online today.
The Velv Wine Oxygenator is unique in that it creates the “Velv-Effect,” which brings optimal aroma and mouthfeel together for the first time. In addition, the Oxygenator opens up wine in a tiny fraction of the time it takes to decant. It’s also far more effective than aerators, which show little improvement, if any. Better still, it allows users to customize wine preparation for different palates.
Oxygen reacts with various molecules in wine, altering the chemical structure of hydrogen sulfides, breaking down sulfites, and lengthening the molecular chains of tannins. These changes ultimately unlock the aroma and reveal a silky smooth flavor. With the Velv Oxygenator, red wines can reach their flavor peaks in about 5 to 7 minutes, and white wines that require aging can be prepared in about 3 to 5 minutes.
“I can see the benefit of the Velv Wine Oxygenator for the casual wine enthusiast,” said Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan, Master of Wine. “For young, tight wines it releases aromatics, for tannic wines it can smooth those harsh edges and make it more velvety, in just minutes.”
The Velv Oxygenator starter kit is priced at $300 and includes the Velv Wine Oxygenator, one Velv PUREOXYGEN capsule, and a Velv Protective Case. Each capsule can prepare approximately 5 to 10 bottles of wine, and additional 2-packs of capsules are available online for $25. The starter kit is now available for pre-purchase at www.VelvWine.com. For a limited time, you will receive $50 off the Velv Wine Oxygenator, and it will ship in time for the 2016 holiday.
“Our experiences during testing with industry professionals make us extremely confident that the Velv Wine Oxygenator will make people love wine even more. We can't wait for wine enthusiasts to have their first 'Oh My' moment,” said Peter Chouinard, Velv CEO.
