The history of wine & Champagne preservation...

Our wine preservation history

Our History

Founded in 1991, Bermar have been at the forefront of the wine preservation industry for almost 30 years. In the early '90s, the modern-day wine list, packed full of selections by the glass, was a distant dream. In the UK, consumers faced a binary choice; a glass of red or a glass of white. Our founding team set out to change that… armed with input from restaurateurs and hoteliers they began developing a system that would allow a bottle to be ‘resealed’, extending the lifespan of a still or sparkling wine from hours to weeks. 

Early tests with winemakers, sommeliers and critics confirmed what the team already knew. The patented Le Verre de Vin wine and Champagne preservation system was set to change the way the hospitality sector could serve wine, and how consumers could now enjoy wine… for good. 

Over the 30 years that have followed, Bermar’s range of products has evolved to meet the changing demands of the modern operator. What has not changed, is our team’s passion for getting great wines into the hands of consumers.
