Similar to draught beer, the wine is put into FreshTAP 19.5 liter stainless-steel kegs at the winery, kept under an inert gas (nitrogen) and then delivered to restaurants. No bottles, corks or labels. Less fuel is used to deliver the wine and the wine is always fresh (no more oxidized wines). With fewer costs, the savings can be passed on to restaurants and to consumers. It’s a win both eco-wise and cost-wise. Wines-on-tap at Ça Va Bistro are available by the glass, half liter, and liter. Two BC red wines being featured: Saanich’s Muse Winery 2009 Cab/Merlot (made from grapes sourced from the Mitchell Heritage Farm in Osoyoos); and Similkameen’s Eau Vivre Winery, 2012 Pinot Noir (made from organic grapes sourced from Beaumont Family Vineyards in Kelowna in the Okanagan). Found at both fine and casual restaurants, the wine-on-tap trend is quickly spreading across North America. Next time you’re in Fernwood Village, stop by Ca Va for a glass. Consider it the next step in the evolution of wines by the glass.
