PRESERVATION TECHNOLOGY

 

Le Verre de Vin: The Industry Standard. Le Verre de Vin is the only commercial-grade wine and champagne preservation system ever developed, capable of effectively preserving an unlimited number of still, sparkling and fortified wines. Le Verre de Vin is firmly established as the Industry Standard, and is supplied to over 80 countried world wide, while over 30,000 operators use our award-winning technology to guarantee their customers satisfaction each and every glass of wine in the condition the winemakers' intended.

Still Wine Preservation. Each use of the system takes just 2 to 5 seconds (depending upon the amount of wine remaining) during which time a precisely controlled vacuum is created within the bottle. Control of the vacuum level is essential to ensure that the maximum period of preservation is achieved without any damage to the subtle structure of the wine.

Sparkling Wine & Champagne Preservation. Sparkling Wines and Champagnes are uniquely preserved by the introduction of a calibrated infusion of carbon dioxide. Each use of the system takes between 2 to 5 seconds, creating a precise pressure equilibrium within the bottle thereby ensuring the natural fizz remains ‘locked’ into the wine.

POD BAR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Q: How many opened bottles can I preserve using the Pod Bar?
A: The integral Le Verre de Vin Wine Pod is capable of preserving an unlimited number of opened bottles of wine thereby keeping the contents fresh and in prime drinking condition for up to 21 days. Please note: preservation is not limited to the capacity of the refrigerated chambers - other bottles stored elsewhere may also be resealed as required, subject to availability of the appropriate reusable stoppers.

Q: Can I preserve still wine and Sparkling Wine/Champagne?
A: Yes, the Pod Bar incorporates patented Le Verre de Vin still wine and Champagne preservation technology. Still wines are preserved by creating a precisely controlled vacuum within the bottle, a process which is critical to ensure the wines remain in prime drinking condition. Sparkling wines/Champagnes are preserved by the introduction of a calibrated infusion of carbon dioxide. The process creates a precise pressure equilibrium within the bottle thereby ensuring the natural fizz and flavours remain ‘locked’ into the wine.

Q: What type of refrigeration technology is used and will it reach low enough temperatures for white wines?
A: As the Pod Bar uses compressor and not thermoelectric technology you will be able to select the appropriate serving temperature from a range of 40˚F to 64˚F (4 - 18°C) via the digital temperature control. Each chamber can be set to ac­commodate either white or red wines ensuring that every wine will be served at optimum temperature.

Q: How easy will it be to extend my service if I decide to further increase the range offered at some point in the future?
A: The Pod Bar is completely modular and facilitates the widest application in the On-Trade and makes retro-fitting eas­ily achievable. The capacity of each Pod Bar can be increased without any corresponding additional investment in wine preservation.

Q: Will I be able to offer the optimum level of wine service by pouring wines directly in front of my customers whether it’s at the bar or at their table?
A: Yes, the Pod Bar is completely flexible, enabling the selected bottle to be removed and the glass poured directly in front of your customer. The Pod Bar is not a dispensing cabinet and therefore bottles are in-hand and not retained in a fixed location. This means that operators’ can offer a truly 21st century wine by the glass service... freeserve and fresh table service delivered from original bottles.

Q: I’ve heard about legal issues regarding wine dispense cabinets - do these affect the Pod Bar?
A: No. The Pod Bar is completely legal and does not require a ‘type approval’ certificate.

Q: What are the key features of the Pod Bar?
A: (1) Le Verre de Vin Still wine & Champagne preservation technology (2) Modular design (3) Red & white wine under one roof (4) Unlimited preservation capabilities (5) Compressor refrigeration technology (6) Temperature range of 40˚F to 64˚F (4 - 18°C) (7) Digital temperature control (8) Internal lighting options (9) Internal display options (10) Locks

CHAMPAGNE SPECIAL 2009: WASTE NOT, WANT NOT

“The killer for any bottom line is wastage, so how do you avoid it?  Stoppers provided by the champagne house manage to keep an over  half-full bottle presentable for a day or so, Presorvac squirts a measured dose of air in the bottle to keep the wine under pressure, but the industry standard is Le Verre de Vin.
 
Its patented system injects a metered dose of CO2 into the bottle via a valved champagne stopper, keeping the wine- and its sparkle – in equilibrium.  ‘There’s never any wastage.’ Says The Bell’s William Hutchings. ‘It’s revolutionised the champagne and wine market,’ adds the Muntaj group’s Chad Rahman.
 
Armed with this, Jones has offered champagnes from the Dom Perignon Oenotheque by the glass.  At Sketch in Mayfair, head sommelier Fred Brugues had Bollinger’s  Vieille Vignes Francaises on by the glass at 115 GBP  for six months from September 2008. Earlier that year his Krug ‘Discovery’ flights were a sell-out, offering three 50 ml glasses – Grande Cuvee, 1996 and Clos du Mesnil (bottle price 800 GBP) – for 120 GBP.   ‘This is our job – to make people touch those things that they cannot normally afford,’ he explains.

FEBRUARY 2008: Shelf Preservation

“One of the big advantages of Le Verre de Vin is that it has a system for sparkling wines as well as still. It injects carbon dioxide into sparkling bottle ullage, which Marr argues, protects the remaining wine... Loch Fyne installed Le Verre de Vin in their 38 restaurants earlier this year. The chain reports a massive increase in sales such that the cost of the installation has been recouped in six months”. READ MORE >
