I’m not sure when I became a wine drinker. I’m guessing it was sometime after college because I don’t really have memories of sitting around with girlfriends at dinner enjoying a nice cabernet. My memories of drinking in college are a little less sophisticated than my drinking habits now. 🙂 None the less at some point I was introduced to wine and it has become my alcoholic drink of choice. I’m not a picky wine drinker, I like whites, rose, a good cab…I also had $12 bottles of wine that taste as good as $250 bottles of wine. But it wasn’t until recently that I learned about wine purification. Wine purification is different than decanting.
Decanting wine serves two purposes: to separate a wine from any sediment that may have formed and to aerate a wine in the hope that its aromas and flavors will be more vibrant upon serving.All wine contains sulfites, which are artificial preservatives added during production. They are the only artificial chemical added to wine and while they’re an essential part of wine production, their job is over when you open the bottle and this is where Üllo comes in.
Purifying wine is something different. All wine contains sulfites, which are artificial preservatives added during production. They are the only artificial chemical added to wine and while they’re an essential part of wine production, their job is over when you open the bottle and this is where Üllo comes in.
Derived from the alchemy symbol for purify, Üllo means “pure wine” and is pronounced “oo-low.” Üllo’s proprietary Selective Sulfite Capture™ technology filters away free sulfites and their bitter taste while allowing other compounds in wine to flow through unaffected – it is the only wine purifier of its kind.
This past Sunday, we had a nice family Easter dinner and I decided it would be the perfect time to try out the Üllo. The first thing I noticed was how the Üllo fit perfectly on my glass. I didn’t have to hold it in my hand which is nice. I also loved how wide the Üllo was which allowed an easy pour and no spillage. We decided to do a taste test and sipped a glass of wine poured through the Üllo and a glass without and everyone in the family noticed a difference in the Üllo glass. The consensus among the family is that it was a smoother and more enjoyable taste.
Below I’ve laid out some of the things I love about the Üllo, but don’t take my word for it, click HERE to get your’s today, Best Buy has them retailing for $79.99.
TO AIR, OR NOT TO AIR?
Another great thing about the Üllo is that it gives you the option if you want to aerate your wine. Maybe you want to breathe a little life into your favorite red or maintain the balance in your white. You can twist the aerator on or off to suit your preference.
