Wine dispenser “Vinoark”
■ What is the wine dispensing machine “Vinoark”?
The wine dispenser “Vinoark” is a small dispenser that can subdivide wine into bottles and pouches without exposing it to air. Wine importers and wineries have more opportunities to hand out wine in small portions instead of face-to-face tasting, which has become difficult due to the corona crisis. However, there were problems such as spilling when subdividing and air entering and oxidizing the wine. By injecting argon gas into the container to which it is to be dispensed and then filling it with wine, the Vinoark can subdivide the wine in 1g increments without exposing it to air.
