DACOR® Redefines The Luxury Wine Experience With First Virtual Sommelier

Jan 22, 2014

The Discovery WineStation® by Dacor® is the first product of its kind — a built-in, commercial-grade wine dispenser and preservation system for the home. It not only displays and dispenses fine wines, but keeps contents tasting just as the vintner intended for up to 60 days, even after opening. This four-bottle wine dispenser and preservation system gives users the option of pouring a taste or full glass of wine with just the touch of a finger.

 

Crafted of fine stainless steel, the Discovery WineStation can be built into surrounding cabinetry or displayed on the countertop. The system features four LCD touch panel displays, allowing users to showcase wine varieties and vintages.

 

“The Discovery WineStation brings the elegance of a restaurant-quality wine experience to the comfort of your home,” said Steve Joseph, president of Dacor. “At Dacor, we’re focused on elevating the way consumers live in the modern kitchen and this product takes displaying and enjoying wine to an entirely new level. It’s the perfect addition to the wine connoisseur’s private cellar bar or other entertaining space.”

 

The energy-efficient WineStation features a proprietary Thermo-Electric Cooling System, with a temperature range of plus or minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit, designed to preserve white and red wines to each bottle’s ideal temperature. Users may also adjust pour volume settings from a one-fourth ounce taste to a full, eight-ounce glass.

 

Dacor’s patented, National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) approved, CleanPour™ heads allow the user to easily replace the bottles and makes the WineStation virtually maintenance-free. The CleanPour feature prevents the user from having to use chemicals to clean the interior of the product when switching out bottles, ensuring the taste and aroma of the fine wine is kept intact. Each pouring head is fitted with a gasket designed to seal the bottle when the cork has been removed. Once oxygen has been expelled, it is replaced by Argon Gas which is used to prevent oxidation, thus allowing the wine to remain fresh for up to 60 days without the loss of flavor or natural aroma.

 

The Discovery WineStation starts at $5,299 UMRP and is available at authorized Dacor retailers nationwide.
