FAQ Enomatic®





In Italy, in the heart of Tuscany, right outside of Florence. The semi automated fabrication ensures quality and reliability that made our brand famous

Refrigerated units (and dual temperature) can range from 45º to 61ºF.

Thanks to the adjustable pistons, the system can accommodate bottles from 375 ml up to a magnum (not all the magnums). That includes long neck bottles.

Opened bottle can be preserved for 30+ days (in normal conditions of ambient temperature) without altering the taste, aroma, body and color of the wine.

We are the only systems to be twice certified by independent organizations for our preservation capability.

No, the regular line of products doesn’t accept sparkling beverages. But the enomatic systems for Champagne, The FLUTE can feature sparkling bottles.

No, our ELITE line does not need drainage (our old Classic line, that has been discontinued, did require one).

Cat5 remains the most reliable way of communicating but in most cases, we can also install the Enomatic systems wirelessly. You will need to be aware of interference from other systems such as security cameras or microwaves.

Go see our "Wine Cards Concept" page to learn more about our software differences!

We do not recommend that you try to move the machines by yourself, this can void your warranty. In case you need to move your system after installation, please contact us so we can assess the situation and find the best solution with you.

No, the bottle is sealed to the head with 60PSI of pressure and locked into place (Elite® models).

Our experience has shown that 90% of problems you may encounter can be fixed remotely (over the phone, via remote connection to your software). Our unlimited phone support will provide you with guidance in case you need to change some parts yourself. We also insist on having a local third party service company that you trust associated with the installation. They can become a local partner for us in order to better serve you.

Typical mark up of the units is 300%. The ability to serve in small portions creates a win-win situation. Any wine will sell at min. $1/oz, i.e. $25/bottle. 


Aside from a light daily cleaning (nozzle and body like any other appliance), you will need to perform a deeper cleaning every 3 weeks to 1 month. The operation takes about 15 minutes for a 8-bottle dispenser (involves flushing with hot water). If your dispenser is connected to the software you can even check the cleaning status in real time, or directly from the screen of the ELITE® dispensers (in case you operate without the software).

Daily: Rinsing spout with sponge/towel + stainless steel cleaner. 

Monthly: Flushing the position with warm water and citric acid.

We only recommend to use foodgrade citric acid (that we can provide) with hot water. This makes the cleaning more powerful. Citric acid is not harmful and is naturally present in citrus fruits (it is actually widely used in restaurant kitchens across the country)


Argon is the best but you can use Nitrogen. Always use High Purity (UHP) at 99.95%. Gas tanks vary from 40cbft to 120cbft. Most frequent size if 80cbft ( about 3ft tall).

We can work at pressures up to 60 PSI. Customer should not interfere with the gas lines unless advised to do so by one of our technicians or by a licensed contractor.

We do not supply the gas, you will have to find a local supplier, we can help you find one if needed. Generally you can lease or purchase your tanks, and then refill.

Depends on the size of the installation. Usually a 80 cbft tank can sustain a 24-bottle set-up for 2 months. Considering the cost of the gas ($35/refill), that cost is not significant.
