We know hospo

We've been in the hospitality industry for over 20 years.

We love wine, we love enomatics, but more than anything, we love this (ridiculous, frustrating, frenzied, incredibly hard working) industry.

Our General Manager David Grant used to be the Venue Manager of Wineology Brisbane, which has the largest collection of enomatics in the country. He had 96 taps to fill, clean and configure – so you could say, he's kinda the expert .

From the technical aspects through to the software integration through to training your team, we have been through this whole journey firsthand. Now we want to pass on his knowledge and experience to help you integrate enomatics into your cellar door too.

Does it stack up?

Here are three reasons we vouch for enomatic machines in cellar doors:

Increased profit margins

A high-quality offering of tasters increases spend per head, while increasing your reputation.

Self-Service

Let your visitors serve themselves from the dispensers using custom wine cards. Create a unique, highly engaging tasting experience.

We invested in a Unica 8 for our cellar door to keep wines fresher for longer, to be able to have our expensive wines on tasting, and to provide more accurate pours. By having our premium wines on tasting, we sell more of them

and we minimise wastage. I’d recommend an enomatic to any serious wine seller – be it a cellar door, a retail outlet or your own home!

Frequently Asked Questions

Read all our FAQs here

What is a wine pouring system and how does it work?

enomatic is a wine dispenser, which means it preserves, cools and serves wines by the glass.

enomatics work by preserving the wine under a protective atmosphere of food-grade argon or nitrogen, which prevents oxygen entering into the opened bottle. Both gases are widely used in the food industry to preserve food and beverages, as they are odourless, tasteless and colourless. Above all, they are chemically inert, which means neither gas reacts with the wine.

After you open the bottle of wine, you insert a tube into the bottle and place it into the machine. The machine then inserts inert gas into the bottle, which prevents it from oxidising.

How long will a wine bottle last in an enomatic® machine?

A minimum of 21-30 days, but often longer. A higher alcohol, high tannin red wine tends to preserve for longer than a light white, for example, or a delicate rosé.

What gas do I need to use with my enomatic® machine?

You will need to use Nitrogen E941 or High Purity Argon E938 for all machines except Unica Bubbles, which uses food-grade carbon dioxide E290 100%. This will be a disposable or external cylinder, and is not included with your purchase.

Both gases are chemically inert, tasteless, odourless, inflammable and, of course, non-toxic. Argon is significantly heavier than air (and nitrogen, the main gas in the air), so it’s what we personally use and recommend. However, it is slightly more expensive. Nitrogen works well too, but the preservation effect of argon is slightly stronger.

We recommend SupaGas as a reliable Australia-wide supplier.

What warranty and maintenance is included?

A one year manufacturer's warranty is included in your purchase. You may also purchase extended warranty and servicing plans, which we recommend for our high-volume commercial customers.

We will send you a link to access our troubleshooting library too, which includes videos showing you how to fix the most common issues, such as a blocked tube or a Wifi connection issue. We want you to be able to get your machine back online as quickly as possible, and find that 99% of our servicing requests can be solved with these free videos.

How do the wine cards work?

All machines except the Unica Start and the EnoOne can be configured to use a physical access card. This is vital if you want to restrict who or how much someone can access the wine, and it also provides you with additional reporting capabilities.

Manager Card

The “manager card” is the master card, and can be used to change settings, such as temperature and network connections. All machines will use a manager card, regardless of whether they are in a private residence or a self-serve cellar door venue. This card can be configured to have a PIN to further restrict access.

Staff Card

The “staff card” is the next level of access, and can be configured to allow the changing of bottles, cleaning of the machines, and dispensing the wines. We can create as many staff cards as you need, which means you can have one for the whole venue, or each staff member can have their own card.

Customer Cards

This optional card type can be created to allow your customers to self-serve. The cards can be loaded with pre-paid credit, or the card can keep track of the bill to be settled at the end. Pre-loaded cards are also great for gifting.

With the smart card technology, cards can be reused thousands of times. Through your enoSoft software, you will be able to erase data on cards and reuse them for other customers.

All of these cards are configured to only work on your machines. Both a manager and staff card are included in your purchase. Customer cards are an additional purchase, and can be enomatic® branded or customised with your own design.

What reports can I generate?

The reporting capabilities of the enomatic® machines depends on the level of software you require. All Unica machines are able to be monitored from any browser device connected to the same wired or wi-fi network using S3App, which is included in your purchase. This allows you to easily add information to your digital display, such as wine names, grape varieties and pricing.

Level 1: BackDesk+
All machines come with Back Desk, a simple software that enables you to add digital labels to your machines (except for EnoOnes, which do not have a display screen).

Level 2: EnoSoft Card Generator
Designed for small operations with one or two dispensers and regular traffic. Card Generator is available as an application to be installed on a computer (Windows only). It requires one of our USB card readers. EnoSoft Card Generator allows you to create wine cards for your customers, add credit on them, and put an expiration date.

Level 3: enoSoft Pro
enoSoft Pro manages the operation of installed dispensers from a desktop computer, providing statistics on consumption as well as allowing the creation of all types of wine cards (including prepaid, VIPs, gift credit and more).

enoSoft Pro can create highly detailed reports for you to integrate into your current business workflows, such as sales reports based on producer and/or varietal. The enomatic® wine dispensing systems have pour detection so you can track every millilitre. All of our wine dispensers have empty bottle and cleaning alerts. Our enoSoft Pro software can handle multiple POS stations within a local network.

enoSoft Pro also includes enoApp, which allows you to manage your dispensers using a simple browser from any device connected to the same wired or wi-fi network.

How does the pour pricing work?

Pricing per pour can be created to a formula based on percentages of the bottle price, or custom built. You have complete control over what you charge.

You also have complete control over how much you pour across the three with pour sizes up to 250ml. Examples include a taste (30ml), a small glass (70ml) and a standard glass (125ml), or a taste (30ml), a standard glass (125ml) and a large glass (200ml).

enomatic® can also automate your happy hour or promotional periods; the machines can be set to go into happy hour mode during specified days and times you choose. You can specify which wines in your inventory have happy hour pricing, which can be set manually or automatically generate a discount percentage based on price.

Do you offer financing?

We work with SilverChef on financing up to $65,000. You can get approval in under five minutes. You can use this handy calculator to see what your desired machine will cost each week. Learn more about financing here.

We know cash flow in business is key, and that enomatic® machines are an investment. We will work with you however we can to make it possible.
