"For this new restaurant concept I wanted to emphasize wine. It was also a question of pushing wine by the glass sales in order to make up for the drop in sales of half bottles.
Customer demand was also a decisive element: serving wine by the glass has become essential in terms of meeting our customers' requirements and responding to drinking trends.
We have changed the wine list itself to a higher quality version and changed the selection of products.
They are now higher quality than those offered before. And, at the same time, we have increased prices by 1.50€ on average.
I am even thinking of offering a fine wine by the glass, I am sure that it would work, especially since there is no longer any risk of the wine oxidising too much and too quickly therefore all the more reason to try it!
What we didn't expect was the fact that we have developed an additional, completely new activity: selling wine by the glass as part of room service. It is still too early to obtain concrete figures but room service sales of wine by the glass are considerable and this increases the bar's turnover.
Finally, the entire team is more interested in wine therefore we have created fact sheets with the sommelier so that everybody feels confident discussing wine with customers and advising them"

"With our wine by the glass dispensers (VoV3e), we are meeting a major requirement of our customers. In the bar or restaurant, advised by a sommelier, customers can now drink a fine wine or high quality local wine without having to buy an entire bottle.."
For us, it is also a question of increasing our sales: as our inclusive wine offering is already large and high quality, we had to offer an additional range available as an optional extra, high quality, attractive and easy for our customers to access.
In this establishment (Club Med Valmorel), 3 months after installing our new equipment and creating sommelier jobs, we have seen a 24% increase in our turnover!"

"EuroCave created a room dedicated to wine for our restaurant, with clever storage and a very modern appearance. I was very well supported during the project in terms of organising the space and meeting the requirements of my wine-loving customers.
The Modulosteel storage system is perfect for that !."

"We wanted a designer wine cabinet to display our wine selection and make it more visible to customers. They liked it and so did the staff - they love how it looks!
We have other EuroCave wine cabinets but this one is really eye-catching. In fact, it's not a question of cost, it's simply a question of visibility!."
