We feel strongly that if Repour doesn’t wow the most experienced wine experts, it’s not good enough for anyone else. So we engaged wine experts to test and review the Repour Wine Saver, and from the beginning, their feedback has been strong and positive: Repour would provide significant benefit to restaurant and bar owners by saving opened bottles of wine they have to throw out today, and by allowing them to offer more wines by the glass. Moreover, Repour was designed as a "quick pour" solution, saving on premise managers valuable serving time. In short? Repour will save them a lot of money while improving the guest experience. Who wouldn’t love that?
Jeff Quint, Owner of Cedar Ridge Vineyards, was one of the first to field test Repour and loved it:
Tested and Recommended by Certified Sommeliers
In January 2016, we conducted our first blind taste test of Repour-saved wine with a group of Certified Sommeliers. They performed a blind evaluation of freshly opened bottles vs. bottles previously opened and saved with Repour, tasting Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir. Dr. Steven Greif, who is one of only 8 Certified Sommeliers registered in Iowa and is in current preparation for taking the Advanced Sommelier exam, helped to establish the evaluation protocol.
While extensive consumer and wine expert field testing prior to the Sommelier blind test had given us confidence that Repour really does work, we were nonetheless delighted with the results from our first official Sommelier blind taste test: All Sommeliers found Repour to be effective and would recommend it for preservation of wine in both a restaurant and a home setting.
Dr. Greif, Certified Sommelier, works with the Cedar Rapids Country Club as the Wine Director where he manages the wine program, wine lists, and assists in wine related training for the staff. He also gives regular wine education and tasting classes at CRCC on a range of wine topics including wine regions and grape varietals. After extensive evaluation, Dr. Greif concluded:
