There are a lot of wine preservation methods available for On Premise operators, and literally hundreds of wine accessories claiming to preserve wine. From over 15 years in the wine industry, including working with different wine preservers and preservation systems, we have a pretty strong base of experience on the subject. The bottom line is: some wine preservation methods work really wellfor On Premise use, some do a good job preserving wine but are difficult to use in fast paced operations, and some (many) simply don't work at all and risk wine waste and bad tasting pours.
The different wine preservation methods that you can use are subject to different perspectives and opinions. We believe the most important things to remember about wine preservers include:
We've narrowed down the "Top Methods to Preserve and Open Bottle of Wine"below, as they represent the most common methods to preserve wine both at home and in restaurants, wine bars, tasting rooms, etc.
We describe the Top Wine Preservation Methods to allow you to make an informed decision. However, to best judge a wine preserver, we recommend you not only consider the information below, but trial wine preservation in your own operation. A fully operational trial requires no capital expense, and a very low cost canister to measure "before and after" wine revenue with only a few higher end bottles.
Regardless of what wine preservation method you prefer, the real importance of preservation is its ability to grow wine revenue in your business. By using a wine preserver, you can not only "save wine," it's a powerful tool to rethink how to sell, promote, upsell, and market wine-by-the-glass and merlot-to-go take home programs!
The Bottom Line: using an effective wine preserver can create better and more enjoyable wine experiences for you customers!
The natural question after learning about all of these different methods is...what is the BEST WAY to preserve wine in my restaurant, bar, or tasting room?
Important points to consider certainly include cost and value. However the first priority is that the wine preserver actually works - its efficacy. Does the method actually preserve the fresh taste of the open bottle of wine? Highest efficacy is attained with 100% Argon gas.
After ensuring the method uses 100% Argon gas, then consider price/value considerations, business preferences, and ease of use for your staff. The increase in wine revenue that you can gain from using a wine preserver in your establishment quickly justifies the low time and effort required. (See our article "How Much it Costs to Preserve Bottles of Wine at Your Business")
From industry experience and the information above, we recommend 100% Argon as the most effective method to preserve open bottles of wine. Your decision then comes down to which delivery system makes the most sense for your business.
For several important reasons - including cost, ease of use, and ability to easily preserve multiple bottles at end of shift - we recommend 100% Argon in a recyclable aluminum can. This includes products like Silvadore Wine Preserver.
