WHY WINE ON TAP?
A greener, fresher, better way to enjoy wine by the glass.
POUNDS OF BOTTLES, CORKS, FOIL, AND BOXES SAVED TO DATE WITH THE USE OF FREE FLOW’S REUSABLE STAINLESS STEEL KEGS
“By making a move to grow our kegging business, I am taking a page out of my grandfather’s book and taking risks when it comes to new and exciting ways of bringing wine to today’s consumers.”
“Wine on tap…it’s delicious, easy and exactly how the winemaker intended you to drink it.”
“We feel that kegging is a great way to do our part off the property to help eliminate waste.”
“We’re all about the ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ theme. With wine on tap, there’s nothing to throw away, so it’s a very green product.”
“It’s a great avenue for providing your customer with the best possible product – while maximizing yield – which leads to great profit potentials and a happy customer.”
“One of the pros (to kegging wine) is certainly the cost. The cost differential is a result of the packaging associated with bottling—glass, corks, capsules, labels—all of which are not part of kegging.”
“We see wine on tap as a tremendous advantage to traditional, by the glass methods and believe it has a very bright future.”
“The ability to produce six and a half cases of wine with no cardboard, no corks, no bottles and no labels means that the keg is paid for the first time you sell it.”
“The dynamic of the wine changes the moment it’s bottled. A keg is consistent all the way through. My first glass and my 300th glass are identical.”
“Unfortunately most wine bottles are colored glass, and recyclers want clear glass. It breaks my heart that glass ends up in landfills, and then there’s the energy it takes to produce the bottles, corks, labels, the cardboard box the wine is shipped in…the beauty of wine in a keg is that it gets used over and over. And it’s a better product.”
“We started working with Free Flow…and kegs have gone from being one of our constant headaches to a channel whose contribution might be as positive for our bottom line as it is for the wine we sell through that channel.”
“Our keg wine program allows for us to offer quality wines by the glass with zero-waste to the landfills. Every glass we serve is fresh and free from oxidation and at a fair price.”
