As we are all aware, the trend of wine by the glass is here to stay – and not just one or two wines but a whole range of wines offered by the glass. With this offering, then comes the question, what happens to the wines that are not finished – especially with the top end of the range of wines? If a bottle is not finished, then there could be enormous wastage costs. And this is where Le Verre de Vin wine preservation systems really come into play.
With Le Verre de Vin wine preservation systems you can preserve wine AND bubbly for 21 days and it stays as fresh as the day it was opened!! You actually can’t afford not to have one if you are in the business of serving wine!
For some, while they can see the benefits of Le Verre de Vin, and know that in the long run it makes sound sense financially, it has been considered an expensive initial outlay – even with knowing that the costs can be recuperated very quickly. So to meet the demands of our market place, we have come up with a very affordable solution – and this solution is an option to rent the Le Verre de Vin system. This means a low affordable monthly payment, without the need to have a big capital outlay.
The added dynamic of this rental option is that it takes the product away from being a capex item and it becomes a monthly operational cost and this is easily covered. In Rand value terms it works out to just R56.00 a day – effectively it means that you have to sell just one extra glass of good quality wine a day and the cost is covered! And when you have a Le Verre de Vin system in place you can offer you whole range of wines by the glass – you end up selling more wine and at the same time you eliminate wastage – you just can’t go wrong!
A number of restaurants are taking this option as they wait to see what happens on the economic and political front in South Africa. One such restaurant is the Bukhara Restaurant group . They are in the process of installing a system in a number of their restaurants. Right now, in their flagship Bukhara Restaurant at the V&A Waterfront, you can now enjoy their premier red wines by the glass and you can even have a glass of bubbly when you arrive – so they are using the rental option as a solution to meet the growing demands of their clientele to be able to order wine (or bubbly) by the glass – we believe this can only increase their wine sales profits!
