Learn About Wineemotion Wine Dispensers

DISPENSERS

 

A Wine Dispenser is an automated, temperature-controlled equipment used to serve and preserve wines at the perfect temperature. Wine Dispensers can hold multiple bottles of wine within one system, and offer different pour control settings. Wine dispensers are most commonly used in restaurants, bars, wineries, lounges, clubs and tasting rooms to prevent spoilage and waste when selling wine by the glass. With software, wine dispensers can also be used by customers directly using smart cards.

 

How does a wine dispenser work?

Through the use of Argon or Nitrogen gas, wine dispensers preserve wine for 30+ days and can serve wine by the glass in three precise volumes. Generally, the portions are set by the taste, half glass, and full glass.

Is a wine dispenser the same as a wine preservation system?

All our Wineemotion® dispensers serve as preservation systems too. They are certified to preserve wine for 30+ days from the time the bottle is uncorked.

 

What are the main applications for wine dispenser?

Wine dispensers are ideal for applications in bars, restaurants, hotels, lounges, country clubs, airport clubs, amenity centers, condominiums, stadiums, grocery stores, wine shoppes, theaters, and homes.

 

What is a card activated wine dispenser?

Through the use of activation or “dispensing” cards, our wine dispensers are enabled to dispense once the card is inserted. This serves as a security feature for owners and ensures that no wine is being served after business hours. In other words, without the activation card, the machine is locked.

 

 

 

Can I use a wine dispenser in my home?

Yes! Even if our smallest unit 4 bottle is for commercial use, yes, you can certainly use a wine dispenser in your home. Although we specialize in commercial dispensers, our Series 2, Professional Grade, Dispenser System with 4-bottles is ideal for home or residential use. The most popular version is the Quattro Dual Zone for 2 white and 2 red wines.

 

How long can I preserve wine in the wine dispenser?

Uncorked bottles can be preserved for 30+ days without altering the organoleptic elements of the wine such as taste, flavor, aroma, body, consistency and color of the wine. Wineemotion’s preservation is certified by numerous organizations including the Napa Valley Wine Academy.

 

What is a whiskey dispenser?

Similar to our Wine Dispensers & Wine Preservation Systems, we’ve also developed a Whiskey Dispenser for your club, bar, or liquor store. Our 7-bottle Whiskey Dispenser was created for the purpose of serving Whiskies, Bourbons and other premium spirits.

 

What is the temperature range for our dispensers?

Refrigerated units (and dual temperature) can range from 42ºF to 70ºF.

 

Can customers steal bottles from the wine dispenser?

All Wineemotion units come with standard key locks on the front door/s or panel. Additionally, the bottles are sealed with high pressure pressure against the built-in tap and securely locked into place.

 

Can I serve Champagne in the wine dispenser?

Wine dispensers do not have the ability to serve and preserve champagne, beer or other sparkling beverages. To preserve the Perlage of sparkling wines, CO2 is required in addition to Argon. Naturally effervescent wines like Moscato are fine however.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE

 

 

What type of cleaning is required on your wine dispenser?

Cleaning for the wine dispenser is divided into two categories:

Light daily cleaning which involves soaking every spout in warm water for a few seconds and general cosmetic cleaning of the wine dispenser with stainless steel cleaner, same quick process used for the beer-spouts.

 

Monthly sanitation, this involves flushing every bottle position with a sanitizer fluid and hot water. Each dispenser keeps track of the sanitation cycles and informs you when it is time to perform the next sanitation.

 

 

What kind of inert gas does your wine dispenser use?

Argon or Nitrogen as long as they Food Grade. We recommend Argon as it is heavier and ensures greater preservation in the long term compared to Nitrogen.

 

What size are the gas tanks?

Gas tanks vary from 21CuFt to 337 Cuft. They range in height from 14” to 60”.

 

 

Do you provide the argon gas?

We are not in the business of supplying gas tanks, you can purchase or rent tanks in your area from PraxAir, AirGas, Matheson or other local suppliers. It is extremely inexpensive for a customer to purchase directly from a local gas company!

 

 

How long will a tank of gas last?

This depends on the number of dispensers and amount of wine dispensed. Typically, a 55 CuFt tank (medium size) will last between 3 to 6 months for an 8-bottle wine dispenser. The national average cost per refill is just $30-$35 per medium size tank.

INSTALLATION & SERVICE

 

 

What are the warranty terms for your wine dispensers?

2 years for all mechanical and electronic components. Up to 5 years with optional extended warranty on parts and labor.

 

 

Who installs and services your wine dispensers?

Do you offer a maintenance plan?

Absolutely! We offer our Preventative Maintenance Care Plan from one of your local technicians.
