I went to a fundraiser and the host had this aerator on a few of the bottles they were pouring. It took a mediocre bottle of wine and really opened it up... I bought one for myself, but I will buy this again as a hostess or housewarming gift. It's a beautiful pour, easy to use and the price is right. It comes in a case, so you can take it with you on a picnic or if you are bringing a bottle to a dinner party. Highly recommended.
