Before joining Atlantis, were you familiar with the EuroCave products?
I’ve known about EuroCave since the start of my career 15 years ago. The products are always durable and reliable, and the maintenance is easy. EuroCave is continually innovating and evolving, which is what’s so great about them – they never go out of style and always keep up with the most recent technologies.
Are you happy with the EuroCave products at Atlantis?
We’re very happy with the EuroCave products at Atlantis because we’ve never had any issues with them. The installations in BSK have been there since the start. It’s made from solid material that’s durable and has never given us any trouble.
The temperature conditions inside the EuroCaves are perfect, as is the lighting. You need a bit of darkness for wine to be stable and EuroCave provides this inside the cabinets. EuroCave has mastered the conditions for wine storage. Wine requires proper care, just like a human does. Wine needs proper housing that will store it correctly. This is vital because wine gets better with proper storage – it continues to evolve until you drink it, so it must be kept properly otherwise it spoils.
As a restaurant serving wine, what are the benefits of being able to serve by the glass using EuroCave’s Wine Bar?
It’s one of the most sommelier-friendly pieces of equipment inside a restaurant. Having a EuroCave Wine Bar makes a big difference with safety and temperature control, as does its storage management. Inside, it’s compact and stores a lot of bottles in such a small space. The Wine Bar has also massively impacted our wastage by allowing us to only use what we need, while keeping the remaining wine fresh.
Why did Atlantis, The Palm choose the EuroCave brand?
You never get in any issues with EuroCave. They have been here from the beginning. Over 12 years from the opening of Atlantis and we’ve never had any issues.
Have you ever received any feedback from your guests on the EuroCave installation?
People comment on the serving temperature. It makes a big difference. Also on the Wine Bar and how it protects the wine from oxidation.
Talk us through the quantity of guests and nationalities that visit Atlantis on an annual basis. Are many wine lovers?
British, Russian, Chinese and Indians are all core demographics here. We get a great mix at the resort, and it’s more of a family crowd because of our facilities. We attract plenty of wine lovers, predominantly in Ossiano, Hakkasan, Nobu and Seafire restaurants.
Can you describe the wine offering at Atlantis? Do you have specific wine offers at different outlets?
Yes, Atlantis has an extremely generous F&B offering with almost 26 outlets. Across the resort, we offer 650 – 700 labels of wine. Hakkadan and Seafire have both won Wine Spectator Awards for their selections. Seafire stocks 350 labels, which is our biggest label selection on-resort, followed by Ossiano.
How would you describe your EuroCave products in a sentence?
