L’Assiette Champenoise

Sébastien Albert | Sommelier
France Nov 2021 Sébastien Albert | Sommelier

At L’Assiette Champenoise, we offer up to 12 Champagnes by the glass each day, and, using our Bermar Preservation System, we’re able to keep our waste below 1%. It’s a fantastic tool for us and allows guests to enjoy incredible wines from our region served in great drinking condition.

Our Le Verre de Vin+ system was really easy for our staff to use. It eliminated our wastage and enabled us to move our guests to a more premium wine and Champagne by the glass offering. It’s been a great addition to our wine service.

Reading, UK Aug 2021 Lucian Obreja | Head Sommelier

“The Bermar system has been hugely supportive of our wine by-the-glass programme, allowing us to offer & pair more Champagne options with our beloved dishes. We are eager to see the spend per head increase at the end of the month when we will be able to offer multiple vintages of Château d'Yquem & a variety of other interesting wines to be sampled by-the-glass.”

“We have been Bermar customers for almost 20 years now, in that time, it has enabled us to serve thousands of perfectly preserved glasses of wine and Champagne to our discerning diners… the system works faultlessly and has proved to be a wonderful investment paying for itself over and over again”

Odette

Vincent Tan | Head Sommelier
Singapore Jan 2021 Vincent Tan  |  Head Sommelier

At Odette, we believe very much in creating experiences and opening up possibilities, and Bermar’s Le Verre de Vin system which has been with us since day one has allowed us to do just that; with 5 Champagnes, and up to 20 wines available by the glass at any point of time. Having an effective and reliable preservation system is key to keeping our program sustainable financially and qualitatively, as nothing can be worse than convincing someone to try a brand new wine only to find it past its best.

Nobu Restaurants

The Bermar preservation system we have at Nobu is used to reseal the wine and Champagnes we sell by the glass. After 15 years it still works perfectly which demonstrates truly fantastic longevity - not many pieces of equipment last that long in my bars! It's a testament to the incredible reliability of the system and the impressive build quality.

It keeps every single drop of wine and Champagne as fresh as opening a new bottle. Maintenance is very easy and training the staff takes less than 5 minutes. Best of all, almost every customer is wowed by the look of this product. It goes very nicely with our rustic looking bar. I've recommended it to almost all of my fellow restaurateurs.

Ash Moore (General Manager)

We introduced the Bermar preservation system in order to help us grow our wine sales and minimise our wastage, it absolutely makes financial sense but more importantly for me as a manager it gives me the peace of mind that all our wines by the glass are served in perfect condition and tasting as well as they could possibly taste. This system and reassurance means that we have expanded our range of wines by the glass and we're able to push for more exotic and interesting wines which means that our clientele keep coming back to us and our list doesn't get stale. We currently sit 4.5% above our sister bars for wine sales and way ahead of our target sales for wine. The minimisation of wastage is a huge factor in me being able to expand our BTG range, I've yet to have any wine go out of condition while it's been open and that alone is a game changer. I would absolutely recommend Bermar to everyone because financially it's a no-brainer but it's enabled me personally to grow my business in the exact way I wanted to.

We wanted more control of the Champagne that we have opened by the glass and a Bermar preservation system already has helped reducing it. We have seen a clear reduction in our waste. Due the Bermar system we now offer Taittinger Comtes de Champagne by the glass which is a great success! I would strongly recommend a Bermar preservation system as it enables restaurants to offer a wider range of sparkling wines by the glass by diminishing wastage.

We have trusted the technology to look after the open bottles in our tasting room, safe in the knowledge that each and every pour is going to be as fresh as the first.

The PODBAR has been tested by Taittinger’s Oenologist’s and quality control team...and I can confirm that it is the best Champagne preservation system we have ever experienced.

The Le Verre de Vin preservation system has been imperative in enabling us to run a successful wine by the glass programme. We now offer 12 Champagnes by the glass including both Krug and Dom Perignon rosé and the Le Verre de Vin has proven truly indispensable.

This is the best wine and Champagne preservation solution I have encountered since my hospitality career began back in 1979. So simple, so obvious… I have installed it in most of our restaurants.

Service Director

Since the club began using the Bermar preservation system, wine by the glass revenues are up by 32%. A much wider and higher end selection is available to a much appreciative clientèle.

Restaurant Director
Great Milton, Oxford 2014 Restaurant Director

The Le Verre de Vin system has enabled us to offer far more of our renowned wine selection ‘by the glass’, meeting growing customer demand for better quality wines without having to buy the bottle. We also have the possibility of matching these wonderful wines with our award-winning food.

Le Verre de Vin is compact, easy to use and most importantly it works flawlessly. I would have no hesitation in recommending the system to anybody.

Margins are now more transparent and the revenue has considerably increases throughout the group, not only by reducing wastage but being able to open more premium wines, as we are sure that they will be properly preserved. The only regret, is that we only started a few months ago and not a few years ago!

The Le Verre de Vin is the best wine preservation system we have ever used.
