We do aeration differently...


A passion for the wine tasting experience has been at the heart of the Aervana project since its inception. Aervana works by aerating and dispensing simultaneously, delivering aerated wine to your glass in real time. Once you place Aervana on the bottle, all you have to do is push the button on top for the “aeration magic” to happen.

About Us

Reaching 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. Summer 2019 can expect the release of the Aervana Select, our professional-level aerator that allows you to fine-tune the amount of aeration to best fit the needs of the wine being served, allowing you to aerate any style of wine to perfection. 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.

What varietals do the Aervana Original & Essential work best with?

Aglianico | Bordeaux blend | Cabernet Sauvignon | Mourvèdre | Nebbiolo | Nero D’Avola | Petit Verdot | Petite Sirah | Syrah (depending on the region) | Tannat | Tempranillo | Touriga Nacional

Louis Christen
Our Founder

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.
