With a 24-bottle Enomatic self-serve wine system around two Enoline ELITE 8-Bottle and two Enoline ELITE 4-Bottle, Varia can offer their guests an impressive wine list with all their bottles preserve in the optimum conditions!
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.
A new Enomatic at Capital City Club, a private social club in Atlanta, GA, has just been installed to update their previous wine system.
We are happy that they chose to trust us another time for their wine dispenser. Their country club in Brookhaven is now updated with the latest version of Enoline ELITE.
With this new system, their members will have the choice between 8 bottles of wine. All of them preserved in perfect conditions and served at perfect temperatures.
A new self-serve wine bar is available with a great selection of reds and whites, through two black Enoline ELITE wine dispensers. We are happy they’re renewing their trust in our systems for their new store!
How it works? It’s surprisingly easy: customers get a pre-paid wine card and then pick between 16 different bottles and pours of various sizes. This Enomatic system is designed to encourage what Whole Foods calls “sipping and shopping” aka “buying under the influence”.
Along with this new wine bar, the 35.000 square foot store features a fast-casual restaurant, a sushi counter and even a build-your-own-avocado-toast station.
All in order to offer the best shopping experience to their guests!
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.
