Spill-Proof (We'll See About That) Spinning Glass That Aerates Your Wine

July 1, 2016


Heck yeah, scoop chips. You drink wine? I drink wine. I drink wine that is very fine. Just kidding, the cheaper the better and I don't think I've ever paid more than $6 for a bottle and that was only to impress a date. It didn't work and I'm fairly certain she also knew the pasta I made were just microwaveable meals I dumped onto my good plates. "Those are plastic." Yeah but they're not paper. This is the Kickstarter for the Aura wine glass ($25 for a two-pack). The glass is supposed to aerate your wine as it spins and "is nearly impossible to knock over," although I guarantee my cats will find a way. The glass spins around what appears to be a pinball embedded in the base leading at least one blogger to speculate that somewhere out there there's a bunch of pinball machines with very sad multi-ball modes. Don't drink wine? The glass is also large enough to hold an entire 12-ounce bottle of beer, and I heard craft beer is all the rage now. Me? I don't drink craft beer, I drink crap beer. Miller Lite and Bud Light are about as fancy as it gets for me and usually it is much, MUCH less fancy. If I'm out with my girls though I do drink Mike's Hard Lemonade. Kidding again, I don't have any girls but I do drink Mike's Hard Lemonade at home alone on Friday nights and watch Netflix. Sometimes I tape a bunch of throw pillows together and pretend it's my girlfriend. Do we get frisky? Sorry, but I don't kiss and tell. Yes I do I kiss her breast pillows they have buttons for nipples. I could use a hug and/or a choke out.

Keep going for a video of the married couple inventors really selling me on them.

Thanks to Cyndi M, who invited me to play a game of wine pong which I graciously accepted because what's the worst that could happen? "You fell through a glass table last time." Right, that did happen.

    Whoever invented this has never cleaned spilled red wine.

  • MustacheHam

    I honestly like this idea, does help prevent spills/stains and looks pretty neat.

  • Deksam

    The stem glass was for the heat from your hand to stop altering the wine.

    The wine won't last long enough in my glass to make a difference.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    I was thinking the same thing, this would only be good for cognac and red wine.

    mmm.. love aerating my beer.
