A local company is set to change how we drink wine forever.
Woodford Bourne NI, a division of Lisburn-based business Robert Roberts (NI), has announced an exclusive partnership with U.S. firm Coravin to introduce a revolutionary new solution that will transform how wine is enjoyed, served and sold in Northern Ireland.
The Coravin™ System uses technology to extract wine from a corked bottle through a thin hollow needle that is inserted through the cork. The bottle is pressurized and the wine pours through the needle and into the glass.
Once complete the needle is removed from the cork and the cork reseals, protecting the wine from oxidation, enabling the consumer to enjoy wine by the glass for weeks or months after first accessing it.
With many local businesses always on the lookout for value adding initiatives, The Coravin™ System allows bars and restaurants to expand their wine by-the-glass offerings to include even the finest of wines with zero wastage issues.
Therefore resulting in more choice & better wine experience for the consumer and less waste and increased profit for the trade owner.
It’s not just the hospitality industry that is set to benefit from the revolutionary new system as it can also be purchased and used by wine-lovers at home.
By using The Coravin™ System, consumers no longer have to commit to one type of wine as they can taste more than one bottle in an evening. Party throwers can also serve both white and red wines and pair wines with different courses during dinner parties, saving what’s left for a later date.
Andrew Schnell Commercial Manager for Woodford Bourne believes that the partnership with Coravin will revolutionise how people in Northern Ireland enjoy their wine.
“The Coravin™ System is a huge development in the way businesses and consumers alike will drink and enjoy wine” said Andrew.
“It took a decade of research and testing by our partners at Coravin to develop this revolutionary new product and we are thrilled to secure the exclusive distribution rights to bring this innovative solution to Northern Ireland,”continued Andrew.
The Coravin™ System is now available exclusively from Woodford Bourne NI. RRP £269 for the Coravin 1000 kit.
Woodford Bourne NI distributes a large range of leading wine brands to the Northern Ireland market including Torres, Cono Sur, Katnook, Lindemans, Wakefield Estate, Matua, Cono Sur, Torres, Moreau, MASI and Mumm champagne.
Coravin Inc. located in Burlington, Massachusetts, USA, was founded by Greg Lambrecht, a medical device inventor and executive with a passion for wine and innovative technology.
He was inspired to bring the two worlds together to solve and create a product that allowed him to enjoy glasses of wine without committing to the whole bottle. Greg spent years testing and improving upon his original design until the Coravin System became what it is today.
