Meeting of the Minds
I'll Take a Vino, Please
Identifying the growing demand for wine and the wide open landscape, Napa Technology founders envisioned creating the next Starbucks — for wine.
They soon discovered there were no well made, cost effective and intelligent systems available in the marketplace to support their new vision.
A New Business Plan
Engaging Apple, Brocade and Sony know-how Napa Technology founders concluded they could design a smarter solution for operators worldwide.
A New Way to Pour
What began in a garage (apparently this is a trend in Silicon Valley) from a gallon milk jug, evolved into a sophisticated dispensing technique. And the Clean-Pour Dispensing Head technology was born.
A New Way to Preserve
From there, intellect, vision and ingenuity were coupled with a wine refrigerator (and ample amounts of duct tape) to create the first ever plug and play, temperature controlled, compressor free wine dispensing system.
Today…the WineStation serves more than 30 million ounces of wine annually through installations worldwide.
