Why infuse wine with nitrogen?
Infusing wine with nitrogen elevates the entire beverage experience from start to finish. The aroma is strengthened, followed by a rich mouthfeel and lasting finish. Nitrogenating wine also smooths out any harsh effects to the flavor from the alcohol or tannins, while bringing forward the subtle tasting notes of the wine. If you are a wine tasting novice, this is a great way to enhance your experience and fine-tune your pallet for discerning those characteristics.
Adding nitrogen-infused wine to your menu also opens the door to a variety of benefits to your shop's Tap Culture. Innovating your alcohol menu can result in greater menu expansion, expansion of hours, and increased food sales.
What wines should I infuse?
You can infuse anything with nitrogen! If you are partial to chardonnays, try starting there.
If you're just beginning your wine exploration, we recommend using heartier wines, such as a malbec, zinfandel or shiraz. If you would like to welcome more creativity in your menu, try exploring different sangrias or wine-based punches.
