The BevWizard Wine Enhancer is an ingeniously designed pouring device that improves many youthful red and white wines or with other words it makes cheaper wines taste better 😉

It is especially well on young, tannic red wines and significantly oaked white wines. These tannic, astringent wines are made softer and fruitier, with less bitterness particularly on the “finish”. As tannic wine passes through the high-intensity magnetic field in the pouring spout, the structure of the tannins is rapidly altered, yielding a softer, silkier mouthfeel. Wine is made to taste softer and fruitier as if it had been further bottle aged. This effect makes wines less aggressive and more palatable.

Neodymium magnets create the powerful magnetic field that works the BevWizard’s magic. The BevWizard is also very easy to use… it has no moving parts, requires no maintenance, is easily washed, and is very durable. Simply “plug” snugly into the bottle-neck and pour away! Only beverages poured through the BevWizard are altered; beverage remaining in the bottle remains unaltered!

The price of the BevWizard Wine Enhancer is $29.95
