7. How to Build an Outstanding Wine Program, Profitably

Pour premium wines by the glass.  No Risk.  No waste.

Wine stock can be one of a restaurant’s largest expenses, so it is vital to maximise the return on this investment.  It’s easy to add expensive wines to your wine list, but selling them then becomes critical. Often expensive wines, offered only by the bottle, can be left sitting in the cellar un-purchased, or be opened, only to pour half the bottle down the sink.

Offering exceptional wines, poured by the glass, will improve your guests’ experience and attract a more discerning clientele willing to buy more expensive wines.  It will also build your venue’s reputation and drive business.

All wine starts to develop and then deteriorate as soon as the bottle is opened. The challenge is to sell all your glasses before deterioration begins.  Without preservation equipment, fine wine should usually be sold within 12-24 hours after opening, so is often discarded once it is past its peak.  This waste can be extremely costly.

On average, beverage sales deliver 40% of revenue. Increasing the profit margin on that 40% can have a significant effect on overall profit.  With the help of wine preservation & service equipment, it’s easier to achieve than you may think.
