OUR WINE PRESERVATION

Bridge Street Social will consistently have between 140 and 150 wines by the glass. Historically, that is an extremely difficult thing to do. An open bottle of wine only preserved by replugging the cork or screwtop generally only lasts about 3 days, before the alcohol (ethanol) in the wine gives the wine some unpleasant oxidative notes.

Vacuum pumps extend that length by a few days, maybe to day 5-6. But we’ve found that pumping the oxygen out of the bottle consistently tends to decrease the aromatics of the wines. We looked at the Cruvinet system, which is a neat (costly) contraption, and would’ve given us about 6 weeks of lifespan per bottle. But we didn’t feel as though spending money on a Cruvinet system was wise, because we’d inevitably have to pass on such a large amount of cost to the customer. We could’ve maintained a great selection, but it would not have been a great value.

Enter the Coravin.

The Coravin is this wonderfully innovative preservation unit that uses an extremely-thin needle to pierce the cork, take wine out of the bottle, and put argon in its place. This preserves the wine, because the cork is never taken out of the bottle. The malleable nature of the cork naturally reseals the bottle. For this reason, we don’t use the Coravin on synthetic corks (nor will be usually be carrying any wines with synthetic corks). Occasionally we will be carrying wines that have screw tops, if we think they’re incredible wines for the money that we can still offer our guests at a great value.

This model of wine service allows us to preserve the bottles for anywhere from 3 months to beyond a year after the original time the bottle was accessed by the Coravin. We have 2 large wine coolers where all of our bottles are stored, in order to preserve the wines at the ideal serving temperature, and to keep them stable. Both Mike and I have been in the business for years, and we definitely empathize with the disappointment that comes with paying $13 for a glass of wine that’s oxidized, because the restaurant didn’t store it correctly.

It is our aim to offer a breadth of wine selections for you, specializing in wines from the United States, Italy, France, Spain, and Greece. We aim to do so at a price that is more than fair.

Join us at Bridge Street Social; we’ll always be on the hunt for new gems from these places and beyond.
