If you are the lucky owner of an Aveine aerator, once connected to the application, it will be automatically calibrated with the right aeration time. All you have to do is serve the wine and enjoy. If your wine is not yet listed in the database, you can still get the right aeration time in just a few seconds. The algorithm will be able to calculate it from the few pieces of information present on the label such as the domain, the vintage, the appellation and the grape variety. Our application is the perfect link between digital and the wine you will find in your glass !
