Just what exactly is Wine Shield?
Wine Shield is the ultimate wine preservation system.
Once a Wine Shield disc is inserted into any opened 750ml bottle of wine, a barrier to oxygen is immediately created which dramatically slows down the oxidation process. The floating lid will continue to remain on top of the wine as the bottle is emptied, with no obstruction to pouring. While still permitting a gentle “breathing” or “aeration” of the wine, Wine Shield will preserve the taste, nose and color of the wine for up to 5 days after the first glass is poured. Wine Shield mimics the flex-based tank system technique that winemakers utilize.

Wine Shield is FDA-approved, food contact-safe material and BPA-free. And, 100% effective! Once a bottle is emptied, the bottle along with the disc can be recycled.
Wine Shield is perfect for the wine trade, including wine importers and distributors, to dramatically reduce sample expense.
Wine Shield is perfect for on-premise accounts, including bars and restaurants, to eliminate wine wastage relating to their By-The-Glass program.
Wine Shield is perfect for the at-home wine drinker who open bottles but do not consume the entire contents immediately.
In all, Wine Shield is the right tool for those who desire to serve and drink wine the way the winemaker intended.
How to Use Wine Shield
Wine Shield is incredibly easy to use for wine and spirit professions, on-premise and trade accounts, and for the at home user.
Wine Shield works by creating a barrier from the oxygen to the wine inside an opened bottle of wine; a little bit of oxygen allows the wine to breath, with too much oxygen changing the wine to vinegar! Wine Shield dramatically slows down the oxidation process by significantly reducing the amount of surface area that can be affected by oxygen. The barrier allows the server (and consumer) to enjoy an opened bottle of wine over the course of 5 days. Please click here for more information.
Each Wine Shield disc is packaged inside a perforated wrapper and is intended for one time use. The Wine Shield should be deployed using an included tweezers used to insert the disc through the neck of the 750ml bottle. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.read more
ROI For Your By-The-Glass Program
Selling wine by the glass is big business in today’s bar and restaurant world, and quality reigns supreme.
On-premise accounts are paying more attention to their By-The-Glass wine program where significant margins can be achieved. Further, cost-conscious consumers are ordering wines by the glass more often today due to increasing bottle prices and a desire to sample higher-end product at a price that is considered affordable — especially when compared to the cost of a high-end bottle at retail.
Wine Shield offers on-premise accounts the ability to cut their wine wastage to near 0% allowing maximum bottle pour through and significant cost savings as the account now has the ability to keep wine fresh for up to five days.
Additionally, because of the Wine Shield unique patented design, the on-premise account may open higher-quality bottles and additional varietals creating a more robust BTG program, without taking on any additional risk.
Enter Wine Shield, the affordable solution for by-the-glass wine accounts. In a world where an open bottle is a race against time — either sell it through or waste the balance due to spoilage — Wine Shield is a welcome new asset in the pursuit of by-the-glass profits.
A single Wine Shield inserted into an open bottle at a bar, restaurant, winery tasting room or cellar door can mean the difference between turning a profit on that bottle, or losing money. Because Wine Shield offers superior taste and nose protection for all opened bottles for up to 5 days, the retailer has a much better chance of selling the bottle to completion while providing customers with a top-level taste experience, right to the last glass.read more
