The Wine Vinturi Gadget

While I was in the city recently I decided I wanted to go to a TJMaxx Home Goods Store.  I was there last week with all 5 kids in tow and well let’s just say that mommy isn’t good at keeping focus when on the crazy train shopping with the kids.  Have you ever tried on jeans with 3 toddlers in your dressing room?  They yell out the color of your underwear…they ask about the dimples in your ass….and don’t even get me started on the tampon string.  And it never fails…as soon as I am naked and getting ready to try on my “maybe” purchases…one yells “Mommy! I need to go poop! NOW!”  Regardless of whether they really do or not … you take them as to avoid them taking a shit ca ca on the floor of the dressing room.

Ok I am really getting off course about my new find here.

I was disappointed to find upon my return to this particular store that the stuff I had so hopelessly wanted, had already been sold out.  Literally in two days it was GONE!  So I decided to convey my way through the narrow isles of housewares, trying not to break anything.  This is hard to do when there are rows of glass shelves full of huge glass pieces and you keep meeting up with the same “isle hog whore” “isle space demanding” lady around every corner.  Like I was somehow suppose to move my cart and risk bumping my clumsy self into one of these shelves.  It would be a “clean up” and “get your credit card out” on isle 2.

Now I love kitchen gadgets…and kitchen gadgets that have anything to do with wine are the key straight to my lips heart.  I notice several boxes with the picture above printed on them.  I am trying to convince myself that I really don’t need it and begin to put the box down when a woman picks one up and starts talking to me.  She explains that she has used these gadgets at the “Wine and Picasso” events in the city and that every glass of wine just tasted so much better.  SOLD!  It’s now in my cart and on it’s way out the door, stopping at check-out first of course.


Of course I get home that night and want to try it out but I had no red wine in the house (yes I fucking drank it all …don’t judge) but I was too tired to go to the store to get more.  So tonight I stop by the store, after burning a ton of calories at the gym…I didn’t eat dinner therefore I have decided that I am going to consume my carbs in wine…and I pick up a bottle of red wine that I wasn’t too fond of the first time I had bought it.  I am going to put this gadget to the test.

First of all it makes the coolest sound as you pour the wine through it and instantly you can see the air bubbles in your glass.  The aroma steeps from the glass and you can instantly smell all the flavors in which the bottle embraces.

If you are a red wine lover and have ever opened a bottle of wine and thought it tasted a little too bitter…I highly recommend you get one of these contraptions.

  2. laughing my ass–oops! I mean HEAD off through the whole post. I’m beyond the shopping with young kids and the craving for that wine because the offspring are driving me nuts, but you brought back “fond” memories of my shopping trips to the store, my love of new kitchen gadgets–especially those related to wine (I have an electric cork remover, for God’s sake!)–and all the rest. Thanks for bringing back the bad old days. Now it’s my kids who get to figure out how to try on clothes while the little ones are doing everything in their power to tear down the walls of the dressing room–especially those really fun (and finger-pinching) swinging doors that never have a lock that works. Thank you for the laughs! Have a great weekend.

      1. Here on the island, you buy stuff you need–or just really, really Must Have–when you see it because tomorrow it will be sold out. I picked this gadget up on a whim because, I figured, at $10, if it doesn’t work, who cares? It’s by Oster, and is a pretty nifty device, especially since cork screws and I don’t get along well and those fancy pressure gadgets cost too much in the long run–all those little carbon cartridges that you can’t seem to find when you need a replacement. As for those openers with tunes that fit between bottle and cork, well, just call me wine cork extraction challenged. But this little doo-hicky is part cap for the bottle top, so it is almost impossible to get into trouble with it. Check Amazon– they have everything. 🙂

  3. When I read about the woman hogging the aisles, all I could do was shake my head because there is always ONE. Always. This sounds like a cool gadget! I’ll have to check it out 🙂
