With 30 wines on tap, we have the largest Wine on Tap System in Maryland and one of the largest in the United States. If you’re a wine drinker, you have to stop in and taste the difference.
What is Wine on Tap?
“Restaurant operators who are serious about providing a fresh, fairly priced and ecologically sound wine product need to embrace Wine On Tap. It’s new and offers an economical and ecological future for wine consumption at restaurants and wine bars in the US.” -Joe & Mary Barbera, Proprietors, AIDA Bistro & Wine Bar
We have installed one of the largest Wine on Tap systems in the region - 30 Wines on Tap with many of the wines changing monthly. This offers our customers a chance to taste new wines each month. Our wines on tap can be sampled in a 3 oz taste. If you already know your favorite, they can be enjoyed in a 5 oz glass or shared in a 10 oz small carafe or 20 oz large carafe.
Many of you have asked us about our system and how it works. We invite you to visit us and either Joe or Mary will be happy to give you a tour.
Going Green is a Big Part of What We Offer
For each keg that is filled, we save 25 bottles, corks, enclosures, labels and various packaging materials. We recycle the kegs, sending them back to the winery to refill with the next varietal or vintage. Our system has saved thousands of bottles, corks and various materials from the landfill.
How does it work?
Tap Wine simply uses a stainless steel keg or recyclable plastic keg as a vessel for delivering wine from the winery to the consumer. It is the same delivery vessel used for tap beer. The winemaker fills a five-gallon keg at the winery at the same or similar time as other wine is bottled for consumption. A five-gallon keg holds about 25 bottles. The kegs are cleaned & sterilized at the winery, filled by the winemaker and placed in what is best called suspended animation. We use a mixture of nitrogen & CO2 to push the wine out of the keg. Keg wine does not oxidize or age.
