How to operate Vinoark


Vinoark is the only machine that can dispense wine into pouches!
*Vinoark can also dispense wine into small bottles.

Vinoark can easily fractionalize a set amount of wine without exposing it to the air.

  • Clean and Secure

    All the parts which contact with the wine are compliant with the Food Sanitation Act and can be disassembled and cleaned (heat resistant up to 100°C). This ensures that there is no impact on flavour or color of the wine. Vinoark uses the food-additive quality argon gas to reduce the risk of oxidation of the wine in pouches and small bottles after dispensing.

  • Precise and Automated Operation

    Filling volume can be set in 1g increments from 20g to 999g.
    Automatic dispensing system ensures precise fractionalization without volume variation.

  • Pouches and Small Bottles

    Vinoark can dispense wine into small bottles with a height from 100mm to 220mm and also into small pouches.
    The dispensing speed is 10g per second.

  • Useful for Various Beverages

    Vinoark can dispense any liquids which do not contain bubbles such as wine, sake and whiskey
