Additionally, the WineStation was a Consumer Electronics Show® (CES) Envisioneering Innovation & Design Award honoree at the 2014 CES for featuring distinctive innovation. The product also received a Architectural Record 2013 Record Product Award.
The Discovery WineStation starts at $5,299 UMRP and is available at authorized Dacor retailers nationwide.
Crafted of fine stainless steel, the Discovery WineStation can be built into surrounding cabinetry or displayed on the countertop. The system features four LCD touch panel displays, allowing users to showcase wine varieties and vintages.
The energy-efficient WineStation features a proprietary Thermo-Electric Cooling System, with a temperature range of plus or minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit, designed to preserve white and red wines to each bottle’s ideal temperature. Users may also adjust pour volume settings from a one-fourth ounce taste to a full, eight-ounce glass.
Dacor's patented, National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) approved, CleanPour™ heads allow the user to easily replace the bottles and makes the WineStation virtually maintenance-free. The CleanPour feature prevents the user from having to use chemicals to clean the interior of the product when switching out bottles, ensuring the taste and aroma of the fine wine is kept intact. Each pouring head is fitted with a gasket designed to seal the bottle when the cork has been removed. Once oxygen has been expelled, it is replaced by Argon Gas which is used to prevent oxidation, thus allowing the wine to remain fresh for up to 60 days without the loss of flavor or natural aroma.
