When you ask the question, 'What's on tap?' at Kitchen ZINC, you might get an answer thats a bit longer than you expected. Not only do we 6 craft beers, but we also have 6 delicious draft wines!
Did you know about our draft wine system at Kitchen ZINC? If not, here’s a few reasons why you need to join us for a glass of wine soon.
1. It was one of the first draft wine systems in Connecticut.
Yup, that's right! We were one of the first restaurants to install this system and we are so happy that since then, other restaurants have also made the move to tap a keg, of wine :)
2. There are 6 different wines, all poured for you at the proper temperture.
Our cooler for the kegs has been set to the proper temperature for each kind of wine to allow you to truly experience the flavors. A common misconception is that the proper temperature to serve red wine is at room temperature. While this isn't wrong, the best temperature to pour a glass of red is between 60-70 degrees. White wine should be between 45-55 degrees.
3. It’s Green!
Kegs offer a 96% reduction in carbon footprint compared to wine poured from bottles over 20 years. Just one stainless steel keg sequesters the same amount of CO2 as 28 trees! Plus, each keg put into service saves 2,340 lbs of trash from the landfill over its lifetime. -trywineontap.com
4. It’s always fresh!
You don’t need to worry about wondering if that bottle has been opened too long or if the wine has been oxidized. The last glass of wine is as fresh as the first glass of wine!
