Rapid City, South Dakota (PRWEB) February 21, 2012
With a history of providing luxury and innovation reaching back to the roaring twenties, the Alex Johnson hotel is revolutionizing the city skyline by changing both where and the way wine is being served with the introduction of the WineStation intelligent preservation and dispensing system. "We are excited to offer our guests a chance to experience an assortment of High-End wines," said Caleb Arceneaux, CEO at ISIS Hospitality, LLC
The 8-bottle WineStation system located in both Vertex Sky Bar and Paddy O’Neill’s Pub will allow guests to sample high end varietals seldom poured by the glass, in the pristine and temperature controlled environment that the wine maker intended.
The WineStation provides guests the ability to experience a range of featured wines in taste (1 oz), half (3 oz) or full glass (6 oz) options. Unique and high end wines such as a 2006 Dunham, 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon and a 2006 Silver Oak Alexander Valley, are now available by the glass.
“Our guests are growing more and more discerning about their wines and requesting unique and high-end wines to try by the glass,” said Jim, Fahey, Director of Food & Beverage. “We needed the most effective, intelligent wine preservation system that would allow us to provide the smartest glass of wine every time.” Fahey continues, “If our guests have discerning palates or are just beginning to develop their appreciation for fine wines, the WineStation will let them explore a wide variety of new and unique tastes.”
As guests cut back on ordering bottles, wines by the glass across the country are catching up to bottle sales because a glass provides the restaurant guest with more opportunity to explore higher priced wines, or indulge in small doses. For the Alex Johnson Hotel, it is an opportunity to manage inventories while reducing waste.
“A robust wine by the glass list can help restaurants increase revenue by allowing the consumer to taste a higher priced wine that might be cost prohibitive by the bottle,” said Nick Moezidis, VP of Sales for Napa Technology. “A wine preservation system like the WineStation is imperative for any property that wants to have a competitive and cost effective wine program.”
