We were among the first Le Verre de Vin customers and in 20 years we’ve never had a problem. We use Le Verre de Vin as a vehicle to up the ante on wine by the glass and offer high end wines at £30-40 a bottles ‘by the glass’.
Nick Barrett, Scutchers, Long Melford, Suffolk
We're offering a greater number of high-end wines and Champagnes by the glass.... Le Verre de Vin gives us the freedom to expand our Champagne by the flute range this summer and introduce offers such as Dom Perignon by the flute.

It was the best investment we have ever made!!!!

We are so confident in Le Verre de Vin that we have four premium champagnes by the glass, and in 12 months we have never had a problem. The confidence that Le Verre de Vin gives to restaurateurs in opening better quality wines is huge

Le Verre de Vin should be compulsory in restaurants – it is of huge benefit

“During the initial 4 months of the program 60,000 glasses of wine were sold. And all of them owe their quality and freshness to Le Verre de Vin”
Rick Hummrich - Director of Purchasing - Starwood Europe
I definitely recommend the ‘Le Verre de Vin’ system to any establishment looking to confidently and consistently serve a quality glass of wine to their customers
Michael Ng – General Manager - Scott’s Seafood Grill and Bar – Folsom - USA
I have been working with the ‘Verre de Vin system’ for more than 3 years now. It is an extremely efficient system which allows us to offer every single one of our 85 wines by the glass. The response from our customers has been awesome! The best part is that we have been able to meet the financial targets of the business with very minimal wastage from wines. My only question is: ‘Why aren’t more restaurants offering the same service?
Gidi Caetano - Salt Restaurant, South Africa
The ‘Le Verre de Vin’ wine preservation system makes sense on so many levels. It instills confidence in our servers knowing they are only serving the highest quality wine with every glass. It also ensures Shaw’s reputation for its’ exceptional wine selection is not compromised. We all know a satisfied equals a repeat customer. This coupled with cost effectiveness of properly preserving our wines, will only drive our profits up.

Installing Le Verre de Vin was a win-win-win decision at Kai Mayfair.
We are always looking for ways enchance our customers' experiences at the restaurant, increase selling opportunities but at the same time NOT increasing our cost base unnecessarily.
Le Verre de Vin achieves on all 3 levels! Customers get a wider choice of wines, we get additional opportunities to sell and our costs are secured knowing that the Verre de Vin system will remove the risk of wastage in the process of offering more options to customers.
Bernard Yeoh - Proprietor - Kai Mayfair, London
Le Verre de Vin has enabled us to offer far more of our renowned wine selection ‘by the glass’, meeting growing customer demand for better quality wines without having to buy the bottle.
We also have the possibility of matching these wonderful wines with our award-winning food.
Alain Desenclos - Restaurant Director – Le Manoir Aux Quat’ Saisons, London
Just a quick not to say how delighted we are with our Le Verre de Vin systems. As you know, we have been using Le Verre de Vin in our Barbaresco winery for nearly seven years now and in that time we have trusted Le Verre de Vin to look after the opened bottles in our tasting room, safe in the knowledge that each and every pour is going to be as fresh as the first.
In fact we were so impressed with Le Verre de Vin, that last year we decided to invest in another system for our winery. We know that there are other commercial preservation systems on the market but we chose Le Verre de Vin because it does the best job for our business and our wines... many thanks.
Gaia Gaja - GAJA Wine Producers
Since we purchased the system back in June 2008 we have been offering our guests around 23 wines ‘by the glass’ 12 of which are Champagnes!
You will be pleased to hear that we found the system easy to install and exceptionally simple to operate. Le Verre de Vin has given us the confidence to offer this extended selection of wines ‘by the glass’, safe in the knowledge that each and every pour will be served in perfect drinking condition.
As a consequence we have eliminated all wastage issues and noted a significant increase in guests wanting to ‘trade up’ to the more expensive wines on offer. We have also seen a very healthy increase in the volume of wine that we are selling.
Thierry Collard - Beverage Manager - Sofitel Paris La Défense
Wine preservation is a major priority for us- serving wines by the glass in prime condition is vital.
We have used other systems before, but since we invested in a Verre de Vin system, the difference is very clear.
Le Verre de Vin is a complete system, professionally built and is designed for anyone who is serious about managing a serious by the glass still and sparkling wine offer.
Staff find the system easy to operate, and so use it all the time, and the confidence that our wines are fresh at all times, including the sparkling wine /champagne
