Frequently Asked Questions

Please find our full FAQs page here.

What's the difference between the Unica and Unica Start models?

Just as sleek, the Unica Start 4 is a simpler "plug and play" option designed for back bar or private use.

The main difference is that there is no card functionality with Unica Start, so it is not suitable for self-service in spaces where the bill needs to be tallied. But it is perfect for residential use, or behind the bar of a venue.

You are also able to self-install the Unica Start, which saves on installation costs.

We're really excited to bring this more accessible machine to the Oceania market.

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.

How long will a gas bottle last me?

A 1L gas bottle (the smallest size available in Australia) will last approximately 80 bottles.

The consumables for enomatic machines are infrequent and inexpense.

Can I put Champagne or sparkling wines in the dispensers?

Our regular Unica line is not designed to work with sparkling beverages, but our new Unica Bubbles machine is.

The team at enomatic® has worked for 20 years to develop a machine that beautifully preserves bubbles, as well as dispenses the perlage. It’s quite a marvel of engineering!

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 I clean my machine?

Like all beverage dispensing systems (such as your espresso machine), there will always be some form of cleaning schedule to reduce build-up of residue and to prevent bacteria growth.

We recommend a simple clean each month with  food-grade citric acid, and then an additional sanitation clean every three months. Both of these are very simple, and we will send you both written and video instructions with your purchase. Your machine will also alert you when it is time to clean it – it's very smart/bossy like that.
