SOMETHING TO WINE ABOUT
New Wine On Tap
New Wine On Tap System: Reduces Bottling!
Join millions of people around the world making a statement about climate change, eco-oenophiles can now use the new era of premium Bag-in-Box (BIB) wine–on–tap systems.
Choosing a premium wine on tap system instead of carbon-inefficient heavy glass bottles reduces packaging waste by at least 85% and carbon emissions by 55% without sacrificing quality. It saves green, too; a 7 liter dispenser of wine holds the equivalent of 9 glass bottles but costs much less plus new technology keeps air out and preserves flavor in for at least six months once the package is open.
Bottle one or two bottles of wine for comparison when filling the recyclable bags!

Taste The Difference With Reidel!
The Towne Winer carries a great selection of the finest proven wine instruments in the world: stemware from Reidel, the Wine Glass Company!
If you've never had the pleasure of tasting wine from a Reidel glass,
you're in for a pleasant surprise. What an improvement from the typical wine stem!
Enhanced bouquet, greater length, increased complexity and accentuated characteristics of the varietal.
Simply put, wines tastes different in different shaped glasses. Choosing the glass appropriate
to the varietal is a good start, and when it is good quality stemware too, you'll be serving
your wine at its very best!
