Praise for Aervana
Aervana is out to enhance the wine experience of wine lovers everywhere. The Aervana brand provides new and sophisticated ways to aerate wine, all with the ease of pushing a button.
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 guerrilla 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.
2018 saw the release of the Aervana Essential, the first exciting step in expanding the Aervana brand into a line of luxury wine products. The Essential takes the same amazing aeration functionality of the Aervana Original, restyles its design for a fresh, contemporary look and pares down some of the Original’s extra functions to arrive at our most approachable price yet for everyday wine drinkers. Now available in three distinct colors to choose from, our Saffron, Dusty Blue and Glossy White Essentials let you decide the perfect pop of color for your personal taste. For the wine connoisseurs, we released the Aervana Select in 2019, our professional-level aerator that allows you to fine-tune the amount of aeration to best fit the needs of the wine being served. With the Select, aerating any style of wine to perfection is as easy as the twist of a dial. The three-tiered Aervana aeration line means there's an Aervana aerator for every type of wine drinker.
While Aervana seamlessly and effectively pours your wine, you can go back to enjoying the wine experience with the folks you love.

Lou launched Aervana in 2015 after putting his expertise in product development to the test, designing a product that does aeration better than any other on the market. The proud father of two beautiful daughters, Lou was inspired by his older daughter’s decision to become a Master Sommelier and sought a way to simplify aeration and return the focus to enjoying wines at their best with his loved ones. A Missouri-native, Lou now lives full-time with his family in Taipei, Taiwan and loves traveling to experience the bounty of different wine regions.
