Wine on tap is a popular new trend and NxNW is on the forefront of this innovative wine service technology. By pouring from a keg, restaurant and bar owners will be able to avoid wasting wine due to spoilage, and help the environment by cutting down on the transport and disposal of glass bottles, corks, and other packaging. The kegs are sanitized and refilled, and wine keeps in the keg for over 6 months. A keg can hold the equivalent of 26 bottles of wine, or about 130 five-ounce glasses.
NxNW is currently packaging the following wines in keg:
2011 NxNW Horse Heaven Hills Chardonnay
2011 NxNW Horse Heaven Hills Riesling
2011 NxNW Columbia Valley Red Blend
In late June a 4 tap system was unveiled at the King Estate Winery visitor center in Eugene, OR, where we are currently showcasing some NxNW wines. If you are in the Eugene area stop by and check it out.
Here’s a video about Wine on Tap and the 4-tap system installed at King Estate.
