The WineWeaver team are excited by the extreme sailing presented by the 34th America’s Cup. Just imagine all those fabulous sailing ships going forth into the white-capped waves of the fabulous San Francisco Bay.

The Challengers consist of four teams- Artemis Racing, Emirates Team New Zealand, Luna Rossa Challenge and Team Korea. Each team is sailing to gain, not just a trophy but, the right to sail for the America’s Cup- the oldest and most prestigious sailing prize in the USA.

The summer of sailing transforms the waterfront along San Francisco into a sailing spectator’s heaven. Cafes and bars host spectators, along with specially constructed viewing areas from which viewers can catch the thrills of the open-water races in the summer sun. In addition, this fast-paced event will be viewed up close and personal by people on the water in hospitality boats in and around the San Francisco Bay.

Ms Robertson, founder of WineWeaver notes, “The America’s Cup is a truly thrilling summer event and it would be hard to find a better setting than San Francisco with the Golden Gate Bridge as a back-drop.”

Invariably, hospitality and charter boats will have on-board bars to ensure spectators upon the water are well catered for. However, the choice of wine on-board may be limited to younger wines that are more often served at sea, partly because they are more robust and suited to the constant motion of the water whilst in storage.

As Ms Robertson notes, “young wines may need more time to open up for their full flavor and aroma to be appreciated, a quick pour through a wine aerator, such as the WineWeaver, will solve this problem by immediately enhancing the character and flavors of the wine.”

The WineWeaver has even been highly recommended by seafarer The Croatian Flyer as the perfect at-sea wine aerator with Clive Baldwin of The Croatian Flyer declaring “bring life and lift to your wine direct from the bottle with the wonderful WineWeaver!”

To make carrying a wine aerator to out-of-doors events easier, WineWeaver also has a Travel Tote available which is the perfect spectator carry-case.

The Louis Vuitton and America’s Cup gives more than a hint to luxury why not rise to the occasion and pack a more sophisticated picnic by including a chilled bottle of Californian or American wine to celebrate the occasion, it is the Americas Cup after all. Ms Robertson suggests “pack a couple of break resistant wine glasses with a wine aerator, such as WineWeaver, to instantly release the flavors and add flair to the picnic.” Ms Robertson, also suggested chilling the wine as the summer temperatures mean the wine will not be overheated and noted that a WineWeaver has been designed so that wine bottle can be re-sealed and taken home as the wine can be aerated by the glass.

For a lightweight picnic hamper for two, consider the WineWeaver Complete Travel Set in Wicker Hamper that the WineWeaver team have put together for such an occasion. This contains a lightweight and effective wine aerator from WineWeaver with travel tote and a travel corkscrew housed in an easy to carry wicker hamper.

Ms Robertson says, “at WineWeaver, we know that enjoying a glass of wine al fresco – picnic, sailing or BBQ- does not mean that it shouldn’t be enjoyed in tip top condition with the help of a wine aerator!”
