/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 customers 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. 

WINE ON TAP

Why Wine On Tap?


With 12 wines on tap,  /pôr/ was one of the largest Wine on Tap System 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)



What is Wine on Tap?

We have installed one of the largest Wine on Tap systems in the region - 12 Wines on Tap with many of the wines changing seasonally. This offers our customers a chance to taste new wines frequently. Our wines on tap can be sampled in a 3 oz taster. If you already know your favorite, they can be enjoyed in a 6 oz glass or shared in a 12 oz small carafe or 30 oz large 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 give you a tour.

Going Green is a Big Part of What We Offer

Environmentally Friendly

Re-usable kegs holds 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 recommend a blend of Nitrogen and CO2 (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.
