A year later this is what Nick Gerov had to say about his experience with his Pod Bar:
“We’ve had a great experience working with Le Verre de Vin in the past year. I’ve had nothing but compliments from our members and guests. It is easy to operate, the staff love to work with it, we didn’t have any waste and, because of that, we were able to provide our members with higher-end wines by the glass. But all of those things are not news for you [the Bermar team]. Thank you, for a great product.”

Here you see Gregg Patterson proudly showing off their new elevated wine-by-the-glass service. Gregg is renowned with Club Managers and the Wine industry for his infectious enthusiasm for great wine service. He was one of the first to teach the power of a great wine-by-the-glass service bringing all sectors of the club together. He present wine as the ultimate social beverage, as even non-wine drinkers like to participate wine events.
The Le Verre de Vin and Pod Bar has been a great addition to their already innovative service. After having used various gas tap wine dispensers in the past they upgraded to the latest wine preservation technology and have the following to report:
” Our Bermar Quad Pod Bar works great – it allows us to increase the number of we’re offering by-the-glass from 12 to 32, with prices ranging from $5 to $ 55. The Le Verre de Vin preservation system has given us the confidence to develop our $ 20 and above wines-by-the-glass selection, which is a new market for us. We’ve found the $ 20 – $ 30 per glass to be a sweet spot for our members, many of whom are hesitant to buy an untested $90 to $ 150 bottle, but are pleased to ‘ give it a try’ by buying a $ 25 or even $ 55 glass of high end wine “.
