At Fresh Choice Nelson we love to be trailblazers… That’s why we were the very first supermarket in the country to make tasting wine before you bought it easy. About five years ago we installed an Enomatic Wine Dispenser.
This temperature controlled cabinet holds eight bottles of wine and dispenses a tasting of one of those eight wines when you insert your special card and push the button above the wine you want to try.
The Enomatic Wine Dispenser keeps the wine fresh by using an inert gas to force the measure of wine from the bottle with the gas replacing the wine; this means the wine doesn’t oxidise and will taste like a freshly opened bottle for many days.
We have two of these temperature controlled cabinets in store. One for red wine and one for white. So each style is served at the perfect drinking temperature.
If you would like to taste from the Enomatic Wine Dispenser before you select your wine to buy, all you need to do is register with one of the wine staff in store. You pay a small $10 fee to cover the cost of the card you need to access tastings, and then every month you’ll get sixteen tastings for free, meaning you can taste all sixteen featured wines over the month if you’d like to.
You won’t get bored because we change the wines regularly, you might even discover some new varieties and favourites as you explore the wonderful world of wine.
It goes without saying that you need to be old enough to buy wine to register and use a tasting card, so if you would like to sign up, just pop into Fresh Choice Nelson with your ID and talk to a member of the friendly wine team. Then away you go… Happy Tasting!
