What is a Napa Wine System?

The Napa Wine System enables us to offer 8 bottles of fine wine by the glass from our reserve program by preserving the open bottle for up to 3 weeks using Argon gas. Argon gas replaces oxygen in the bottle when poured preventing the wine from oxidizing. If you’ve had an opened bottle of wine at home, oxidation is what causes your wine to lose some of its flavor, color and aroma after a few days.

Our Napa Wine System is also temperature controlled which allows us to store 4 bottles of fine white wine at 45 degrees and 4 bottles of fine red wine at 55 degrees.

Currently we have the following reserve wines by the glass:

Sauvignon Blanc || Cloudy Bay | 2017 | Marlborough, New Zealand || 20
Chassagne-Montrachet || Château Maltroye | 2015 | Burgundy, France || 30
Chardonnay || Mer Soleil | 2014 | Santa Barbara, California || 21
Chardonnay || Stags Leap | 2016 | “Karia” | Napa Valley, California || 17

Barolo || Borgogno | 2012 | Piedmont, Italy || 25
