OC Wine Mart plans to open a new location in Orange, Calif. with a 34-tap self-serve beverage dispense system using iPourIt technology.
Orange, CA – February 5, 2019 – OC Wine Mart, an upscale gourmet market and deli, plans to “Make the Brickyard Grape Again” and offer a unique shopping and tasting experience at the new Orange location.
iPourIt increases its lead in the self-serve beverage dispense technology market with the installation of a 34-tap self-serve wall at OC Wine Mart. This is the first self-serve tasting room utilizing iPourIt’s technology in Orange County, CA. Co-Owners and husband and wife, Julie Lim and Farid have a passion for wine, cooking, farming, and have a history of transforming old liquor stores into upscale gourmet markets, delis and tasting bars. Julie was named OC Metro’s Top 20 Women to Watch, and Farid leads the tasting panel for OC Wine Mart.
The upscale wine and craft beer shop is Orange County’s largest self-pour taproom, featuring a total of 30 craft beers and 36 wines on tap. The Orange location will be the third OC Wine Mart to open, but the first to install an iPourIt self-serve beverage dispense system. Customers can taste before they buy, getting a premier wine and beer tasting experience.
OC Wine Mart also offers gourmet sandwiches, flatbreads, artisan cheese and meat platters, caprese salad, olives, and bruschetta. Customers can also enjoy live entertainment on weekends; Fridays and Saturdays.
The iPourIt system adds to the premier tasting experience and fun atmosphere with the 34-tap self-serve system. The self-pour taps will feature a rotating selection of 30 local and regional craft beers and four wines. They will also offer 32 wines on tap using a separate dispensing system. Customers can find, taste, and take home their favorites.
“iPourIt is excited and honored to work with OC Wine Mart. Julie and Farid are intelligent and strategic business owners who see the value in the self-serve concept and innovation. They have had tremendous success with self-serve wines, and now with the addition of an iPourIt self-pour tap wall, hope to establish a combined solution that both wine and craft beer patrons will both enjoy. We look forward to watching them succeed with craft beer tasting as an additional offering.”Darren Nicholson, Vice President of iPourIt
