We pour over 70 wines by the taste and by the glass in our wine shop and tasting room.  Before using Repour, we were wasting quite a bit of wine. Coravin is not optimized for pouring two ounce pours over a long period of time, so when bottles would get below 1/2 full, they would start to oxidize and we would have to use them quickly or lose them.  Since we started using Repour (...), our lost wine on bottles we use a Repour on have dropped to nearly zero.  Thanks for creating such a brilliant product.

After 6 weeks of testing Repour on a number of different wines, and using the skills I have learned over my career as a Master Sommelier, I can say Repour is one of the most astonishing products I have seen in over 10 years. I use the word astonishing exactly to its definition; “extremely surprising or impressive; amazing."

Everyone with restaurant experience knows the sad story of a great bottle of wine being opened for a glass pour, then it gets sent to the purgatory of hanging around the back bar, going unsold for a few days. Until one day the cork is pulled and sadly the remains of that bottle have to be poured down the drain, or sent to the kitchen for cooking, as it's just a shadow of the greatness that it once was. The fact that Repour brings spoilage down to nearly nil, in and of itself is a really big deal.

Repour is an incredible little slice of simplicity when it comes to preserving wine. It is convenient for a myriad of reasons: No need to scrub a machine, no need to keep up with gas, you get to use all of the wine in the bottle, and it doesn’t take 40 minutes to pour a glass of wine. From a straight cost-saving perspective, it’s worth its weight in gold. Anyone can use them, you don’t need training to pull a “cork” out and pour wine. The fact that the wine has to reopen is absolutely amazing and almost unbelievable! The wines have stayed ridiculously fresh. I won’t use anything else from here on out when it comes to managing the Reserve By-The-Glass program.

My staff is trained to automatically Repour every bottle opened for BTG at the end of service. Before Repour, I was dumping between $180 and $300 (wine cost) every week. With Repour, the savings are huge and obvious. Repour cut my program COGs by 4% the first month I used it and, subsequently, allows me to open and pour nicer wines on our pairing menu because I know they won't go to waste.

We don't usually vouch for wine products, especially when it comes to wine savers (we've tried them all, and only a few work), but @repourwinesaver is an incredible product we recently tried that's too good not to share! We tested it on two bottles between one week and two week intervals, and there was no detectable signs of oxidation or change. Extremely user friendly, no complicated pumps needed, just plug and go, and it helps that it's pretty cheap too.  We aren't getting paid or compensated for this post, we genuinely do love this product and recommend it to all levels of wine lovers!

We have been successfully using the @repourwinesaver on our BTG program to keep our wines fresh for service until the last glass! #innovative #wine #tools #sommlife #winesaver

Repour is "a straight up game changer, beating everything out there for a fraction of the price. When I first discovered them I was really skeptical and then I tried it. I put one in a bottle of wine and after 3 1/2 to 4 weeks, the wine was still perfectly intact. It's really inexpensive and a lot easier than some of the pumps and tanks I've seen. A really simple, easy way to keep your wine intact".

"This is a pretty damn cool new technology! I took a bottle of a 2005 Croix du Beaucaillou that I poured 3 glasses out of and then put the stopper in. I let it sit for 13 days then opened it and tried it with my executive chef, who has one of the best palates I have ever seen. Both of us were pretty amazed to see that the wine was perfectly sound. The folks at @repourwinesver didn't pay me....just want ya'll to quit wasting wine by pouring it out. Check it out!"

A wine saver that actively removes the harmful oxygen from your wine keeping it fresh for months....even when enjoyed glass-by-glass. Cheers!

Thanks to Repour, we have really changed how we serve wine. We are a smaller (but growing) restaurant, and Repour allows us to offer wines by-the-glass which people typically aren’t familiar with. We are now serving 32 wines BTG - up from 10 before Repour - and our wine sales are up 500% since we have been using them! We use Repour on all of our still wines and on our dessert wines, too; they are fantastic on vintage Port. Since we made the switch, there has been zero wine loss, and we are saving more than $400/week in wine damages — and making money where we used to lose it. Thank you for creating such a wonderful and necessary product. This is something we truly believe in, and every restaurant and bar should get on board and start using them.

I finally reopened that bottle of wine I closed with Repour five months ago (at 65% full). The wine showed no evidence of acetic acid increase...Argon could not have done this job unless maybe, and that is a big maybe, if you gas it daily and chill in the frig...I'm a believer.

(After 4 day test stopped with Repour on an Oregon Pinot Noir) Does it taste the same today as it did on Monday? Let's find out...the nose is beautiful...very berry...color has stayed the same which means that there has been no oxidation....here we go...(taste)...It's remarkable. It tastes as fresh right now as it did on Monday... This is a $32 bottle of wine...so spending $1.50 to save the bottle so I can drink this wine over several days or several weeks makes a lot of sense to me.

We deal with a significant amount of wine waste because of the number of separate bars we have set up on any given night. Most wine preservation products I have tried are cost and time prohibitive. Since we started using Repour, I'm savings hundreds of dollars each month on wine waste. Repour is both effective and easy to use. We've been able to expand our BTG offerings in our a la carte dining and reduced waste considerably for our banquet business. Repour is working great for us!

We all want wine to last forever, especially after it’s been uncorked. You perhaps, selfishly, tasted an epiphany wine and now you want others to taste the hype. But wine exposed to the elements starts turning into vinegar or cooking wine with every passing minute. Don’t read me wrong, oxygen is great for wine for it allows the wine to evolve, but like everything in life, it should be exposed in moderation. As sommeliers, we look for ways to expose everyone to the endless world of wine, but besides being wine liberators, we also need to look at our bottom line. Opening an expensive bottle of wine for someone to have one glass doesn’t make financial sense #$ @repourwinesaver has the solution. I admire what Repour has accomplished here. The stopper removes harmful oxygen from inside, keeping the wine fresh. I tested Repour with 4 different wines of different varietals and bottle shapes and I’m very pleased with the results. It has a one fits all closure and it really does save wine lives. This product gives Megan and I the flexibility to have only one glass each and we still are able to enjoy the rest of the bottle at a later date. We love this product and will be using it far into the future.

The owner of Cedar Ridge Vineyards was one of the first to test Repour in his tasting room...and loved it

 

Here at Cedar Ridge our restaurant closes every Sunday and we don’t re-open until Wednesday. In the past that meant every Sunday we had to pour out hundreds of dollars of wine. Now, with Repour, we simply replace the corks with the stopper when we leave here on Sunday. When we come back on Wednesday the wines are as fresh as they were when we opened them.

"Repour has revolutionized how I use and handle wine samples in the market. Where I used to get one or two days of fresh wines in my sample bag, I can use Repour to stretch those samples for weeks with no loss in quality. Between our tasting room and my samples in the market, Repour is destined to save the Miller Family Wine Company and J Wilkes Wines thousands of dollars a year!"
