The Napa beverage philosophy is simple; approachable wines, beers and cocktails at approachable prices. Like restaurants and vineyard bars in Napa, we are always looking for those amazing gems of domestic beverage production that we can offer at amazing prices without the added costs of importing or name recognition. Our wine list is what we call Napa’s Top 100, a list of 100 great California wines. The wines by the glass portion of the list is centered around our WINESON TAP SYSTEM, the largest in the state of North Carolina. A wine on tap is simply a wine dispensed from a large stainless steel keg. The benefits of this are numerous. It is environmentally friendly – thousands of glass bottles are avoided and that means there is no bottling cost. These costs savings are passed on to you – can be up to 20% less expensive than the same wine poured from a bottle. It is fresher and higher quality. When a wine by the glass is dispensed from a normal bottle, the wine immediately begins to spoil the moment the bottle is opened. In many cases the wine is already spoiled the next day as the restaurant continues to pour from the same bottle. In a keg system, the wine stays 100% fresh for months. You will be able to taste the difference. There are more choices – we dispense wines on tap in 3oz pours, 6oz pours, 12oz carafes and 24oz carafes (same as a bottle). This gives you more freedom of choice and allows you to experiment with different wines. Red wine is served at the correct temperature – 55 degrees. Ask a server about our Wines on Tap!
Our wines on tap system is augmented by 8 more glass selections from our NAPATECHNOLOGY SYSTEM. Napa Technology is a system that allows us to dispense wine from bottles that are protected in a temperature and air controlled unit. This is an ideal supplement to the tap system because it allows us to offer aged wines that would otherwise not be offered in kegs. Rounding out the selection is 8 more taps dedicated to local Micro-brewery beers, a popular new trend in American dining.
One of the most recent trends in Napa, California is the movement toward BARREL INFUSED COCKTAILS. This means infusing domestic liquors with various fruits, herbs and spices and then using this infused liquor in the design a unique specialty cocktails. Napa makes 5 infused liquors from scratch and offers 5 unique specialty cocktails made from each infusion. You may never go back to traditional cocktails again.
