Oxygenate Your Wine Picnic with Velv Wine

We have a special unveiling for #WBC16 attendees during Friday’s lunch and expo event!


This is not your average conference lunch. Join us in Kirst Hall at Hutchins Street Square for a lunch sponsored by Velv Wine, the world’s only wine oxygenator to use 99.5% pure oxygen to bring wine to its peak flavor in just a few minutes. Velv is officially unveiling the revolutionary wine oxygenator at the Wine Bloggers Conference, so you’ll be among the first in the industry to learn about this new tool that will change the way you experience wine.

The Velv Wine Oxygenator does something that decanting and aerating cannot: As a wine is exposed to air over time, aroma and flavor will peak and then begin to diminish. With decanting, aeration or simply letting the wine breathe, these attributes always peak at different rates and then decline, so you can never experience optimal mouthfeel, aroma and flavor at the same time. The Velv Wine Oxygenator creates the “Velv-Effect,” which brings optimal taste and aroma together simultaneously, revealing the wine’s true, peak flavor.

The unveiling will take place during an interactive picnic-style lunch where you’ll have the opportunity to learn about Velv and how oxygenation brings wine to its peak flavor. The Velv team will also be onsite to provide side-by-side tastings so you can taste the “Velv-Effect” for yourself.
