The Setai Miami and The Villa Casa Casuarina (previously known as The Villa Versace), two upscale hotels and restaurants in Miami Beach, Florida, contacted Enomatic a few months ago to help with their wine program.

With Enomatic’s expertise, they found the help they needed to insure their guests the best wine tasting experience. They inquired for behind-the-bar systems operated by their staff, with a minimum of six bottles. And units capable of handling their finest bottles of wines while offering them at perfect temperature.

Having these informations on hand, we worked with them to find the best units for their needs. We recommended the installation of two Enoline ELITE 8-Bottle, one for each of their locations. These units came with Dual Temperature capability to provide a mix of high-end red and white wines. All bottles of wine preserved for more than 30 days in pristine conditions.

The Setai Miami and The Villa Versace now provide these wine selections while avoiding waste thanks to Enomatic most advanced technology. Our unique preservation system coupled with our pouring management system let them have perfect control over their wines. With an average of 10-20% loss due to spillage and over pouring in the industry, Enomatic helps generate profits!

Enomatic has been a prime partner of The Wine Room on Park Avenue in Winter Park, Florida, proud recipient of Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence since 2013 and early adopter of self-serve wine dispensers back in 2006. 

Following the success of their first wine bar and retail store, the innovative collaboration between Enomatic and The Wine Room continue for their second location in Delray Beach, Florida. 

Enjoy a selection of 216 wines-by-the-glass

We are proud to be part of this amazing new project that is now the largest wine bar in the world. Thanks to Enomatic’s most advanced technology, guest can enjoy a selection of 216 wines. All the wines are offered in taste, half glass and full glass portions, preserved for more than 30 days in perfect conditions and at the right temperature. The self-serve concept is the best way to discover wines without having to commit to the purchase of an entire bottle, while providing a fun and social experience. 

The Wine Room Delray Beach is also a restaurant with a full lunch/dinner menu and features a rare-wine room with about 2,400 bottles of wine.  Artisan’s cheese, meats, and 600 to 700 bottles of wine are available for purchase in the retail section.

The benefits of Enomatic’s self-serve systems

As any bar or restaurant owner can attest, serving wine the traditional manner by pouring straight from the bottle increase waste and reduce efficiency. However, with Enomatic’s self-serve systems and three-level pour technology, serving wine is made easy and efficient while giving the best experience to your guests and showcasing your finest bottles. The self-serve operation and accurate variable pour control increases the performance of the bar by allowing the customer to take control of their wine purchase while the bartender behind the bar focuses on other aspects of tending bar that decrease wait time and increases the business’ ROI. 

Taste is a critical factor with wine and our wine dispensers ensure that the taste of each pour is of the highest quality!

THE CLIENT

Tapastrie has been South Bend, Indiana’s spot for wine & tapas since 2015. It combines Mediterranean-inspired dining with an expansive wine list to give its patrons something that turns the traditional restaurant experience into an exotic culinary adventure.

Tapastrie co-owner Tom Welsh explains their concept as a “small plates concept, but while tapas is associated with Spain, other cultures in the Mediterranean eat the same way,” Welsh says, “we’ve got a little Spanish, a little Greek, a little Middle Eastern, a little French, a little Italian. The Mediterranean, in general, but in smaller portions so that people can share and try different things.”… and they also specialize in wine!

THE PROBLEM

Having a wide selection of wines, they wanted to be able to give their customers an opportunity to try as many varieties by the glass as possible, while not having it result in leftover wine that would spoil when preserved through traditional methods.

Welsh, who had seen the Enomatic while traveling in New Orleans, reached out to Enomatic for more information on how it could help his business create the best possible experience for their customers. 

To help them with their problem, we worked with Tapastrie to find the right Enomatic solution for their needs, resulting in a 24-bottle system with 3x Enoline ELITE 8-Bottle that is customer-interactive and allows for 3x different precise pour options. This has allowed them to take control of their wine experience and try bottles they might otherwise avoid due to price or a lack of familiarity with the varietal.

THE RESULTS

Welsh calls its Enomatic the “greatest thing since the toaster”. Customers are attracted by the sleek and attractive design, and wine sales have increased due to the variety of options available to them. The system’s customer-interactivity frees the staff to focus on other areas and keep everything running smoothly, while providing a great and unique experience for patrons

We are selling more wine through our Enomatic systems than by the glass at our bar or through our wine list bottle program. One out of three customers says ‘I need one at home!'” 

OVERALL SERVICE EXPERIENCE

Welsh says that his “experience with delivery and installation were all positive. The technicians are always friendly and knowledgeable and my few requests for service whether IT or mechanical are always followed up on quickly. The machines are easy to clean and bottle changes are simple as well. I highly recommend these systems for an overall better wine experience“.

Sake Dojo in Los Angeles offers the largest collection of sake in the US. More than a hundred bottles of sake are available and forty are preserved to perfection thanks to five Enoline ELITE 8!

Sake is an alcoholic beverage made by fermenting rice that has been polished to remove the bran. It is usually referred to as “japanese wine” and is the perfect pairing with japanese food.

As wine, it is refined and delicate with many flavor notes, such as fruits, flowers, herbs, and spices. Many sakes have notes of apple from and banana. a good sake tasting requires the bottle to be in perfect condition of preservation.

Sake is served chilled, at room temperature or heated, depending on the preference of the drinker, the quality of the sake, and the season.

For all these reasons our wine dispensers are perfectly adapted to help preserve sakes and offer the best tasting experience! No one is better to say it than Sake Dojo LA owner, Don Tahara: “the key piece of equipment that allows for us to provide testing is an Enomatic wine preservation systems”!

The Sake Dojo in Los Angeles has the largest collection of sake in the US.
