LARCHMONT, N.Y., Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- What's new on tap? Welcome to Unokeg Singlo! An exciting, new, cleaner, greener, budget-friendly concept from Bedford International, a leading name in imported fine wines from Italy since 1949, Unokeg Singlo marks Italy's first ever range of wines to debut in a cost-effective, easy-to-use, disposable, fully recyclable keg format. With demand for Italian wines at record levels, Unokeg kicks off with three signature wines from Italy's Veneto region, made under the Singlo label: a sparkling Prosecco (100% Glera grape), a Pinot Grigio and a robust Merlot-Cabernet blend.
Tailor-made for by-the-glass programs, mixed drinks and wines served in carafe, at bars, banquets and large-scale events, Unokeg Singlo disposable keg wines are ideally suited for use in hotels, restaurants, stadiums, arenas, cruise ships, casinos and catering facilities.
Thanks to an impressive 20-liter capacity for the Prosecco and 30 liters for still wines, the sturdy yet lightweight Unokeg container offers a winning combination of volume, longevity and reduced pouring costs. Cost-cutting benefits include:
- 10-25% savings over bottled wine
- Elimination of breakage and spoilage (no more oxidized or corked wines)
- Significantly reduced packaging costs (no bottles, labels, cartons, capsules or corks)
- Lower shipping costs; fewer deliveries
- No deposits or returns, in contrast to traditional stainless steel kegs
- No need for expensive pressurizing gases, such as argon or nitrogen – a simple air compressor or the same system used for beer on tap will suffice
Newly available in MA, CT, NY, NJ, DC, NC, SC, GA, TN, TX, CO, CA, WI, IL, MI and MN, Unokeg Singlo wines are scheduled to roll out in OH, KY, IN, MD, VA, OR and WA this fall.
Unokeg Singlo Prosecco breaks down to an estimated cost of 20 to 25 cents per ounce ($1-$1.25 per 5-ounce pour), while Unokeg Singlo Pinot Grigio and Singlo Merlot-Cabernet equate to approximately 18 to 22 cents per ounce ($0.90 to $1.20 per 5-ounce pour).
