I love this quote from one of the leading hotels in Cape Town! “Next to the blender, the Le Verre de Vin system is one of the most important pieces of equipment a hotel should have!” Restaurants Hotels Wine Bars

Are you wondering why leading hotels view this equipment as so necessary? The facts are quite simple.

  • Times are tough – the announcement was made this week that we have just missed moving into a recession!
  • If occupancy in a hotel is low, then the hotel cannot afford to have any wastage
  • Even in hard times, people still like to eat and drink well and above all they like to have a choice
  • Offering wine by the glass is now essential, it is no longer optional
  • Entry level wines are no longer acceptable
  • You have a choice – you can either limit wine by the glass which detracts from the service you offer or you can invest in some form of wine preservation system and can effectively offer your whole range of wines by the glass, creating a huge drawing card to potential customers!

With all this in mind and knowing that you need to change the way you do business to keep maintaining a profit, Le Verre de Vin, the only commercial-grade wine preservation system available in South Africa, can offer you the following:

  • Preservation of any opened bottle of wine or bubbly for 21 days – as fresh as the day it was opened – allowing you to offer your full range of wines by the glass. This international trend of offering wine by the glass is where many hotels have the leading edge over their competitors
  • A range of easy to install systems or a the option of a portable system – no need to any alterations to existing infrastructure
  • Increased wine sales, customer spend and profitability – profitability could increase as much as 50%
  • An increase of 25%+ in the value of wine by the glass sales
  • An increase of 10%+ in the volume of wine by the glass sales
  • Re-seal an unlimited number of opened bottles of still, sparkling wine and champagne in just 3 seconds
  • Compact, reliable, easy to use and operates automatically within a matter of seconds
  • A dramatic decrease in wastage (you could eliminate it entirely) – which would positively impact your bottom line and remove the risk of ever selling a glass of wine past it’s best.
