National Resturant Show – 21 Cooliest Discoveries

Karen Post, Restaurant Branding Roadmap Our goal is to help you be “the restaurant of choice” with loyal customers who love your place, come often and are proud to be your ambassadors. Coolest wine accessory – Wine Shield I love wine, but I hate when a great bottle of red goes bad because of the oxidation process. Wine Shield works by creating a barrier from the oxygen to the wine inside an opened bottle of wine; a little bit of oxygen allows the wine to breathe, with too much oxygen changing the wine to vinegar! Wine Shield dramatically slows down the oxidation process by...

Matt, LocalWine.tv There’s a new way to preserve wine. It doesn’t require rubber corks or vacuums. It can be inserted right into the bottle. This new preservation system is called a Wine Shield and comes to us from Australia. Recently the folks at Wine Shield were kind enough to send me a sample so that I could share my experiences with you.

Another way to keep opened wine fresh – Examiner.com

Tom Peiffer, Wine Examiner Got wine left over that just can’t be consumed? Have a bunch of partial bottles left over after tasting party? As many know, you can’t just put the corks back in and expect the wine to be much good later on. This is because exposure to oxygen in the air can ruin wine in a day.

Lift Bar & Grill

Steve Lobsinger Lift Bar & Grill – General Manager/Wine Director I do admit, I was a little skeptical when the shield was first introduced. I also know I needed to find some way to cut down on the amount of wastage on my wine by the glass program. I carry 24 wines by the glass and as a wine lover, I would not want my guests to get an inferior product. The Wine Shield has proven its worth in giving my wines added shelf life and maintaining the quality expected of my offerings. Click here to visit Lift Bar & Grill...
