About

Meet the newest addition to the Aervana product line, the Aervana Select. It’s the first aerating product yet that allows you to fine-tune the level of aeration for the wine being served, all with the simple turn of a dial. Got a Sauvignon Blanc chilling in the fridge? Set your Aervana Select to the 0° position, turning aeration off, and dispense away. Or, turn the dial up and have that full-bodied, Italian red perfectly aerated and ready to pair with tonight’s pasta dish.

Following from our original Aervana— where we introduced one-touch aeration at a single level of infused air— the Aervana Select maintains the bottle-top dispensing people loved, while giving you the extra control of not one, but a full range of aeration levels. Now for every wine and every taste, Aervana Select helps you find that sweet-spot, so that you can enjoy every glass at its best.

The Aervana Select follows-up from the original one-touch Aervana, introducing new features that take the classic design to the next level. The introduction of variable aeration levels means you can choose from no aeration to three hours in a decanter based on the wine’s character before dispensing. The original, plastic tube is replaced with a stainless-steel, retractable tube, and we’ve brought back our innovative one-touch dispensing.   

Wine changes as it’s exposed to air. For many wines— whether it be from being cooped-up in the bottle or being heavy in alcohol or sulfites— a freshening-up through rapid exposure to air can help reveal the true character of the wine. 

With the turn of a dial, Aervana Select adjusts to suit any wine by giving the full range of aeration time from zero to 180 minutes in a traditional decanter. 

In ideal circumstances, only metal and glass objects would interact with your wine. We’ve updated to a stainless-steel tube that telescopes to adjust to any-sized bottle. 

It still only takes one finger and the push of a button to “Reach Aervana.” Our bottle-top design turns any bottle into a personal wine tap. Just press the button, and watch the magic happen. 

Aervana Select keeps sediment where it belongs, at the bottom of the bottle, not in your glass. The small filter at the bottom of the tube prevents sediment in older bottles of wine from being dispensed.

The Aervana Select has already won some awards for design, innovation and quality. 

The Select is the newest iteration of our wave-making, original Aervana; here are some folks that love our brand:

For three years, the Aervana brand revolved around marketing our original Aervana, the first bottle-top aerator, introducing one-touch aeration at a single level (equivalent to one hour in a decanter).  

Now, we’re at it again, designing an all-new product with not one level of aeration, but a full, dial-controlled range from no aeration to the equivalent of three hours in a decanter.  

With updates to the tube, moving from plastic to stainless-steel material, and a newly designed liquid pump system replacing the previous pressurization design, the Aervana Select truly redefines how we aerate wine.

Design on the Aervana Select began in 2016. The resulting tests focused on integrating an innovative variable levels of aeration feature with our bottle-top model. 

It all began when our founder, Lou, and his daughter— an aspiring Master Sommelier— started taking home wines to taste and discuss together. As they stayed up nights sharing stories and impressions over wine, they realized properly aerating the wines that needed it tended to interrupt and distract from the wine experience.  

Luckily, in this case, a problem came together with passion and expertise. Lou, a product developer by trade, was able to spend five years testing and developing the original Aervana— simplifying aeration, while doing it well.  

To launch in the United States, Lou gradually seeded a small group of sales and marketing professionals to create the western brand. And, through guerilla marketing on-the-ground at wine festivals and events, building connections and widening consumer visibility reselling through prestigious wineries, and being dedicated to providing authentic and engaging content to our consumers and followers, Aervana was able to flourish and build a loyal fanbase.  

Now, the Aervana Select is the first exciting step in expanding the Aervana brand into a line of luxury wine products. We believe the innovative addition of variable levels of aeration— allowing users to properly aerate and serve any wine in our wine tap format— goes even further in taking care of the details, so that you can have the best wine experience possible. Through Kickstarter, we’re hoping to make that product a reality and deliver a superior way to aerate and serve wine to our consumers.

               
            
  

Risks and challenges

The Aervana brand is one of proven quality, with a support team in place to manage any unforeseen challenges to our production process. Using advanced CAD programs, we have designed the Aervana Select product with rigorous attention to detail and quality. And, in order to ensure our initial designs upheld our standards of quality and our expectations of functionality, we have custom manufactured a number of test units. Put to the test, our prototypes fulfilled our engineering standards with flying colors.

We are relying on our Kickstarter backers to fund the tooling necessary for a full production run. As with any product, there remains a risk that we will discover a previously unforeseen design flaw. However, our company has all the experience of properly bringing to market our original Aervana and believe the product developing experience on our staff has created a product we’re confident avoids design flaws, mitigating the risk to you as consumers and backers. We have a trusted and reliable manufacturing partner in place and that, paired with our experience producing the original Aervana, have us confident that we have addressed any potential challenges. We have, however, factored in a time and financial cushion in the rare event we have to accommodate small production challenges.

Our international and domestic shipping processes are in place and tested. We see very little risk specifically to our company’s ability to deliver product. The risks inherent to shipping in general-- weather delays, labor strikes, missing packages, etc.-- we are, of course, unable to completely mitigate, but we have a customer service staff on deck to assist backers with any unforeseen challenges.
