Wine Kegs Market – Overview

For many years, restaurants have been providing their customers with wine service either by-the-glass from open bottles or by selling full wine bottles. It had a few drawbacks like wastage, as the complete content of the wine bottle is not consumed, high packaging costs and maintaining the wine’s taste profile when being shipped. An emerging alternative for the traditional methods is “Wine Kegs.” Wine kegs are better than the conventionally used glass bottles in many terms as they maintain the wine quality, are easy to use, economically viable, can be shipped efficiently and reduces the oxidation of wine when poured by-the-glass. Wine kegs at restaurants enable them to save on transport and manufacturing the bottles. Storing wine in wine kegs takes up less space in comparison to the area taken up by the cases of bottles and wine kegs even contribute to lowering the carbon footprint of wine. It is a specialized equipment which consists of tubes and dispensers which require an excellent cleaning regimen as, if the tap lines are not cleaned up to the mark, the temperature will vary, gas mix won’t be perfect, or the pressure might fluctuate, and all these will end up in deteriorating the wine’s taste. Restaurants save about fifty-cents by using wine kegs instead of bottles, and they could keep these savings as their customers will pay by the glass prices mentioned on the bottles.
