Essentially it is a self-serve wine dispensing machine which sounds a little unromantic until you have experienced it – then you will definitely want one in your house too!
We were the first cellar door in the Hunter Valley to introduce the Enomatic system when we installed three 8-bottle machines in 2009. Featuring revolutionary technology in gas preservation, these beautiful Italian machines allow wines to be preserved for up to three weeks. The system operates using argon gas, which seals the bottle to stop any oxidation, so that the flavour and characteristics of wine remain intact.
The Enomatic system allows you to taste at your own leisure and taste whichever wines suit your palate. We have two Enomatic wine machines in our Icon Lounge, featuring 16 premium wines and representing over a dozen different winemakers. We rotate the wines in the line up regularly and our aim is to cover divergent styles from the best Hunter Valley winemakers to show you the very best of our region.
The option of three different pour sizes allows for great flexibility:
- 30 mL Taste: For those who would like to try a number of the wines in the range.
- 75 mL Half Glass: A little bit more of the wine to enjoy
- 150 mL Glass: For when you find the wine you really love and want to sit back and savour.
