The Press and Pour Sommelier

One of my favorite social spots is a wine bar with a do-it-yourself dispensing system that lets me leisurely sample wines at will. No need for a waiter or a sommelier, you just simply press and pour. Now, I can create the same experience at home with the “Virtual Sommelier”  a wine dispensing system by Dacor.  The product caught my attention because it’s a game changer for the home wine cellar- the next “must-have” product for those looking to amp up the vino experience.  Dacor’s Discovery Wine Station is an automated, temperature-controlled, four bottle dispensing and preservation system for the consumer. No more wasting half-finished bottles, you can now open, sample, sip and preserve without the pressure of finishing off the bottle or the guilt of wasting it.  You don’t need to be a oenophile to appreciate the wine station’s practical attributes, but at a cost of $5,299  the return on investment relates to its “value” in your lifestyle.

Perhaps temperature-controlled wine storage is all you need. True Professional Series recently introduced a dual-zone  wine storage system with two independent zones so you can chill your whites colder than your reds. “Consumers are still putting wine cellars in their home, but not everyone has the space or money to invest in that,” explains Steve Proctor, Director of Sales.


The dual-wine zone can hold up to 45 bottles and comes with True’s patented TriLumina LED lighting. “You can change the light from white to amber to create some ambiance.” True also has a single zone wine storage center that can stack together with the dual zone. “This gives you three distinct zones for sparkling, whites and reds,” says Proctor.

For those who don’t have the budget or space for a full-on wine cellar, temperature controlled wine storage offers a space-saving solution. Or, perhaps you just want your wine within easy reach in the kitchen or near the outdoor grill.

Manufacturers like to call these amenities “point of use storage” as outdoor spaces, basements, wet bars, and wine cellars continue to evolve as social spaces to sip and savor the good life.   Cheers!
