Casks & Flights Wine Tasting Room is a new wine bar that opened in July in downtown Pensacola, FL.
Inside the 1,770-square-foot space at 121 Palafox Place is a wine tasting room and lounge, which boasts eight Enomatic. Seven Enoline ELITE 8-Bottle and an Enoround 16-Bottle are the main attractions in the bar. You will also find a frozen wine machine and fermenting tanks behind the bar, where Casks & Flights brews its own mead.
The 72 wines-by-the-glass are available across the eight Enomatic which are self-serve units: guests receive a wine card, which is used as a running tab or in a pre-paid amount option. They can then browsed their selection, held in their Enomatic wine dispensers that keep each wine at its optimal temperature and preserve the organoleptic properties of the wines for more than 30 days (taste, color, body and aromas).
The system offers a choice between a 1-ounce taster, a half-glass pour or a full-glass pour. It allows them to pay a smaller amount to try a wine before indulging on a whole glass, or they can try several different tastes and discover new flavors. There are options at every price point, from budget conscious to indulgent.
Co-owners John Wilson and John McCorvey say that they’re “the only place for 400 miles where you can spend a couple bucks for a taste rather than more for a glass. You can try wine on a better budget. It’s great for people who don’t want to commit to a flavor and want to try a taste rather than a glass”. They are also partnering with local businesses, it is a major focus of Casks & Flights. Wilson and McCorvey’s venture is teaming up with local brewers to serve craft beers.
Wilson hopes Casks & Flights unique approach to serving wine draws customers back again and again.
“With our business, our biggest goal is to completely revolutionize the industry. Our biggest objective is to create a different experience every time. It is an art to make our products, but it is also an art to serve and retail it,” he said.
Uncork in Charleston, SC has been opened since June and is now a fully self-serve wine bar!
This wine bar on King Street features five Enomatic Enoline ELITE to offer a great selection of 40 different wines-by-the-glass. The self-serve system gives you the opportunity to taste and sample wines that peak your interest. All their wines represent numerous regions, varietals, and price points.
Their self-serve system is considered “open-tab” and quite easy to use: just hand over your credit card and receive an Uncork card. The card keeps track of the ounces poured as well as wines tasted, and you will be charged when you decided you’ve sloshed enough tannins around.
In addition to their wines, Uncork also serves a variety of cheeses, charcuterie, pate, desserts, caviar and more.

This month the HX:Expo in New York celebrated it’s centenary with a major revamp. Quality and commitment remain paramount for the most important trade show in the North America’s hospitality industry, but the show is looking forward to the next 100 years with the introduction of a new layout, live presentations and panel discussions.
Many awards were presented throughout the show including the ‘Foodservice Pioneering Concept’. The proud winner of this award was Bienvenu, a collaboration between Architectural firm Bruner/Cott and foodservice design and consulting firm Colburn & Guyette of Massachussets.
Bienvenu is a mobile Tapas & Wine Bar – a silently unfolding table which transforms into a bar with seats, POS counter, cold display case and a wine bar.
The concept, serving a minimalist menu of a dozen or so small-plate selections is completely self-contained with the exception of a roll-in, roll-out under counter refrigeration unit (to store in the host site kitchen). Bienvenu folds away completely when the unit is closed.
“Bienvenu is a concept that can fit a niche in a variety of settings. Its upscale, minimalist approach provides an ‘out of the box’ option to grab-n-go customers, where they can stop and relax with a glass of wine and small plate for a while and then be on their way again”
