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 glass (6 oz) | 2 glass carafe (12 oz) | 5 glass carafe (30 oz)
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.
Re-usable kegs hold the equivalent of 26 bottles - Reducing the carbon footprint of the wine significantly through
- greater efficiency in shipping of the wine; and
- 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.
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
5.16 gallon = 26 bottles = 130 (5oz) glasses, reusable, 304 gauge stainless, 9.4”w x 20.6”h
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.
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.
