/pôr/ wine house has filled a nitch in Louisville that so desperately needed to be filled by providing an environment in which you can enjoy a glass of wine and feel like you have been transported to another place. Our wine house is situated just steps off main street, but somehow feel miles away from the bustle of cars and people. Often times our guests will tell us that they feel like it reminds them of a place they visited while on vacation in Europe, and that is what we enjoy most; that people feel like they are on vacation while dinning at /pôr/ wine house. What's more, we have an exceptional offering of wines on tap, with 14 different wines by the glass to choice from, we have something for everyone. /pôr/ wine house also prides itself on always having at least one Sommelier on staff to help develop our wine list, as well as guide our guest thought their wine drinking experience. All told, /pôr/ wine house is as unique as Louisville, CO itself, and will continue to delight those that wonder down our little brick path. 

We are serious about providing fresh, fairly priced and environmentally friendly wine; this is why we embrace Wine On Tap at /pôr/ Wine House. The benefit for you, the consumers, is consistency of freshness. By taking the bottle out of the equation, we eliminate concerns about bottle variation, bottle shock and faulty corks.
— Patrick Walsh - Proprietor, /pôr/ wine house

With over a dozen wines on tap,  /pôr/ has one of the largest Wine on Tap Systems in Colorado. If you’re a wine drinker, you have to stop in and taste the difference.

All of our wines on tap can be enjoyed as a flight (3 - 3 oz)  |  glass (6 oz)  |  2 glass carafe (12 oz)  |  5 glass carafe (30 oz)


WHITE WINE MENU

White wine is a wine whose colour can be straw-yellow, yellow-green, or yellow-gold. It is produced by the alcoholic fermentation of the non-coloured pulp of grapes, which may have a skin of any colour.

RED WINE MENU

Red wine is a type of wine made from dark-colored grape varieties. The actual color of the wine can range from intense violet, typical of young wines, through to brick red for mature wines and brown for older red wines.

ROSÉ WINE MENU

A rosé is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method


What is Wine on Tap?

We have installed one of the largest Wine on Tap systems in the region -  with over a dozen Wines on Tap and many of the wines changing seasonally. This offers our customers a chance to taste new wines frequently. Our wines on tap can be poured from 3 oz tasting flight to a 30 oz Carafe. 

Many of you have asked us about our system and how it works. We invite you to visit us and we will be happy to walk you through what we do.

Going Green is a Big Part of What We Offer.

Environmentally Friendly

Re-usable kegs hold the equivalent of 26 bottles - Reducing the carbon footprint of the wine significantly through

  1.  greater efficiency in shipping of the wine; and
  2.  reducing waste/trash by eliminating the need for glass, cork, capsules.

Our system has saved thousands of bottles, corks and various materials from the landfill.

Freshness

The first glass is always as fresh as the last. Our tap system uses inert gas to preserve the wine as it is pushed through the system, thus eliminating oxidation and preventing spoilage.

How does it work?

Tap Wine simply uses a stainless steel keg or recyclable plastic keg as a vessel for delivering wine from the winery to /pôr/ Wine House . It is the same delivery vessel used for tap beer. The winemaker fills a five-gallon keg at the winery at the same or similar time as other wine is bottled for consumption. A five-gallon keg holds about 26 bottles. The kegs are cleaned & sterilized at the winery, filled by the winemaker and placed in what is best called suspended animation. We use nitrogen to push the wine out of the keg. Keg wine does not oxidize or age.

Wine On Tap System

Kegs
5.16 gallon = 26 bottles = 130 (5oz) glasses, reusable, 304 gauge stainless, 9.4”w x 20.6”h

Inert Gas
Wine is pushed out of keg with inert gas which then prevents oxygen from getting to the wine thus maintaining the wine’s freshness. We use a blend of Nitrogen and CO2 similar to a Guinness Blend.

Draft System
A simple Beer tap line cannot be used for wine. We use a higher grade of stainless steel (304) and special tubing to maintain the wine quality and hold up to the higher acidity and alcohol found in wine.
