Why Wine On Tap
wines in kegs, stainless steel casks.
A small cask makes a good wine
Keg packaging eliminates bottle shock and glass recycling, reduces labor costs, and minimizes the wine wastage involved with corked bottles and old wine. The containers require less space than the equivalent amount of bottled wine; this gives you more wine along with reduced labor costs, minimal waste and maximum savings. Our customers will always enjoy great wine at a great price, and we’ll all share in a greener planet.
Using 100% 304 grade stainless steel kegs and fill the kegs directly from the blending tank at the winery and immediately seal them under pressure using inert gas. This prevents oxidation and spoilage. The wine will remain fresh for six months or longer as long as it remains under pressure. Our primary keg size is 19.5L (19.5 L = 26 bottles)
Kegging mean less packaging and production costs (labels, corks, bottles, bottling, boxes, storage) and those savings are passed on to you. The keg system guarantees that every glass will be fresh – no more pouring out of old open bottles. The overall savings can result in more than 25% savings over bottled wine.
"Why would anyone want wine on draft? The main benefit for consumers is freshness. In a standard wine-by-the glass program, restaurants often keep an opened bottle around for hours or days, increasing the threat of oxidation. Better venues discard bottles after a day, or use storage systems to keep the wine fresh. But that's not a concern with kegs. Draft wine comes in stainless steel kegs, connected to the taps by plastic tubing containing inert gas that pushes wine through the lines. This inert gas also protects the wines from oxidation by occupying the empty space in the keg. By taking the bottle out of the equation, you also eliminate concerns about bottle variation, bottle shock and faulty corks."
