For you, Wikeeps investigates the conservation of open wine.
For a long time, the only solution for keeping wine open was to use the refrigerator, which would keep it for no more than 2 or 3 days.
But technological progress has improved wine preservation.
The first air pumps for wine bottles were introduced, extending the shelf life of wine by 1 or 2 days. But this is obviously not enough, especially for professionals (both in the wine industry and in the restaurant trade), who need to be able to guarantee that the wine they offer on their wine lists and served by the glass will keep for several weeks.
Wikeeps, the solution to the problem of storing open wine.
The Wikeeps wine-by-the-glass preservation and service systems (Coffrets Essentiel and Grandioso) preserve a bottle from deterioration for up to 20 days after opening.
The system developed (for which a French patent has been filed!) adds Argon and CO2, neutral natural gases with innervating power, to the bottle.
The uniqueness of the Wikeeps system is that, once installed on an open bottle of wine, it enables the wine to be served in a single action (thanks to the trigger-operated dispensing gun), accelerates aeration (Bernouilli principle applied to the serving spout) and protects the wine by depositing a thin layer of protective gas on the surface of the wine remaining in the bottle (heavier than ambient air).
Wikeeps: the ideal solution for wine by the glass in restaurants
Add to these functions the fact that the Wikeeps system is the only tool on the market:
- Capable of filtering wine extracted from the bottle
- Offers rapid service and does not slow down the sommelier’s work.
All these advantages make Wikeeps the preferred tool of catering professionals, as well as winemakers who offer tastings in their cellars.
Thanks to such a long shelf-life, these players in the wine industry are able to avoid losses linked to the poor conservation of opened wine, and better manage their stocks and maximize their profits.
Wikeeps (Wibox) refrigeration systems also keep open bottles at the ideal temperature.
