Wines by the Glass in India gets an unlimited bottle shot in the arm with Italy’s Winefit entering Indian hospitality market

Winefit Italy launches its unlimited wine by the glass system with HILKNIGHTLY INDIA

NEW DELHI, Jan. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — In India, Wine by the Glass is the most enjoyed way restaurant guests order still and sparkling wines. Wine by the bottle has become rare, as by-the-glass, the guests can choose their preferred wines to their own budget.

Winefit Italy, wine by the glass product

Restaurants across the country have invested in Wines by the Glass menu but have been limited due to space and cost of equipment. For many restaurants and hotels in India, wines by the glass have worked poorly because while a bottle is kept at right temperature and fresh, the open bottles are either at wrong temperature or had reduced in quality by fifty percent.

Restaurants serving wines in India have faced two options, either a refrigerated wine dispenser of two to eight bottles, or a system that fits into every bottle, which causes high maintenance, lost parts and often found unused in a drawer. Wines by the Glass while lucrative and so profitable, has been marred with trouble of high cost of operation, high maintenance causing restaurants to stop, and offer a limited range of local wines that finish quickly.

Winefit Srl, launched a new generation technology made in Italy that covers both the problems allowing restaurants in India, as in Italy and Europe, to invest heavily in Wines by the Glass. Winefit Srl has launched two styles of options covering every expectation from the restaurant, the problems of:

  1. EVO replaces limiting and expensive Wine dispensers taking up counter space and serving only two to eight bottles, with the need to add more machines for +2 to +8 bottles to increase menu.

    Winefit EVO modular system with patented winecap lets the restaurant use at one time as many still wines as required from one system (not two to eight). Each EVO machine has four spouts for four wines with option to allow two red and two white still wines. EVO is programmable with example fifty or hundred bottles. Example,

    A customer requests for one of the open fifty bottles on the menu. No problem, the operator slides out an existing bottle, and replaces it with the requested bottle. The EVO system pulls up the menu to select the bottle added. Accept it, and the bartender serves the new wine to the customer. And about the old bottle removed, EVO wine bottles are fitted with preserved wine caps. The bottle removed keeps its preservation, and placed into a wine cooler, standing. The process is same if this wine is needed one again. All through the time, the EVO machine records wines sold, and the bottles’ inventories. EVO is a boon for restaurant chains (hotel or independent) giving access of its use to a central cloud platform. For more information on EVO, visit website.

  2. DURAVIN+ for HoReCa (Hotels, Restaurants and Cafes) that desire similar wide menu of wines by the glass, at an affordable and very simple to use format. There is no portion control or temperature control, only perfect vacuum preservation. DURAVIN+ is perfect for restaurants where wines are of lower cost and ordered in higher volume. Wine bottles are kept in a refrigerator to keep its temperature. The DURAVIN+ allows preservation of both sparkling and still wines. The action is with the bartender opening a new bottle; removing one Seal DURAVIN+ Cork (that works with DURAVIN+ countertop machine). The server, will pour a glass for the guest, plug in the rubber Seal Cork. The Seal Cork lets the server now vacuum the wine bottle near any DURAVIN+ preservation counter (service station or back bar), and place it back in a refrigerator, fresh as new till thirty days of opening.

HILKNIGHTLY Official inform that the Winefit EVO has fast become the leading choice of wine by the glass dispensing system over previously sold brands in any comparative, by price, custom user options for its display and colors, and an exclusive ability of adding infinite bottles to one system without the need to add more machines.
