New Nuance Wine Finer – decant in 30 seconds
Nuance Wine Finer, a tool capable of decanting a bottle of wine in less than 30 seconds, is now distributed by Australian-owned gift packaging and wine accessory company, Cellarbrate.

The Nuance Wine Finer is a fantastic accessory to have at the bar for wines by the glass. Simply insert the Wine Finer into the bottle neck – it does all the required aeration and filtration – and you can decant the entire bottle in an unbelievable 30 seconds. Of course, if there’s wine remaining, the silicon seal on the stopper will preserve it.
Conceived by Danish wunderkind-designer, Marcus Vagnby, the stylish pourer filters sediment, cork and tartaric crystals, while 32 aeration holes ‘open up’ the wine. The pouring spout ensures that not a drop is spilt and a small, tightly-fitting stopper keeps what’s left fresh for later enjoyment. The body is made from ABS plastic, the surface from rubber and the sieve from stainless steel, all of which can be easily washed by hand.
As Marcus Vagnby describes; ‘I came up with the idea for the Wine Finer because I thought it was a shame to see so many glasses of good red wine being served that contained finings and pieces of cork. Wine that should have been filtered out before it was poured into the glass…
‘[It’s] a wine pourer designed to break surface tension and to aerate the wine at the same time… It all sounds very simple but the design and product development process lasted two and a half years. It took that long to clarify the details before the Wine Finer could replace a traditional decantation.’
The intelligent, aesthetic and practical accessory has been endorsed by the international and local wine media, including Max Allen, The Weekend Australian (29.05.10):
‘…the Nuance Wine Finer, a sleek, Danish designed, perforated thingy that you insert into the neck of the bottle. As you pour, the gadget gently aerates the wine and filters any gunk such as sediment in older reds or bits of broken cork. It looks stylish, and it actually works – more than you can say about most gadgets.’
The Nuance Wine Finer is part of a professional tool kit; with the sleekly designed Nuance Waiters Friend (with two-stage lifter and foil cutter) and the customised case.
