NAPA Technology Winestation 3.0 Debuts At Hilton Hotels
With the Swipe of a Key, Hilton HHonors Guests Can Enjoy Trinchero Family Wines
CAMPBELL, CA, July 03, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ — Thanks to the Napa Technology WineStation, Hilton HHonors guests can enjoy a selection of Trinchero Family Estates wines with the swipe of their room key. Added to the Hilton HHonors Club lounges at the Hilton Orlando Convention Center and the Hilton New York on the Avenue of the Americas, the WineStation systems allow guests to enjoy eight, impeccably stored premium wines by taste, half-glass or full-glass pours. As the first hotel chain to use the Napa Technology integrated room key capabilities, Hilton projects the WineStation will enhance the individual guest experience while generating additional beverage sales. Hilton will be adding the WineStation to a third location, The Palmer House in Chicago, later this summer.
“We’re excited to continue providing immediate, profitable solutions for our business partners,” says Rich Hardy, VP of Software Engineering & Development for Napa Technology. “The ability to introduce room key integration opens up a wealth of opportunity for hotel operators, ranging from hotel lobby lounges to executive suites while allowing the highest level of customer service.”
As at Hilton, the WineStation preservation and dispensing systems help staff manage a wines-by-the-glass program, which translates to customer satisfaction, repeat business and increased profits. The WineStation, with its 60-day preservation capabilities and temperature-controlled environment, can be installed in under an hour- with no costly, disruptive, renovation required. Delivering the highest level of profitability and customer satisfaction from the first to the last pour, Napa Technology’s WineStation has served more than 10 million ounces of wine through its systems in 2012. The company is on track to more than double that number in 2013.
WineStation is the first intelligence-based, automated, temperature-controlled wine dispensing and preservation system. The product delivers a “just opened” taste experience for up to 60 days once the bottle has been corked. Enhancing this technology, WineStation reports the trends of popular bottles, sales reporting for both individual servers as well as individual customer preference. The result: good quality wine for the customer and higher profits for the business owner.
