CHERRY HILL, New Jersey – April 22, 2014 – Tiare Technology announced today it has deployed its Wireless WineList™ solution at Volvér, the new Jose Garces restaurant at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia. The one-of-a-kind dining experience at Volvér will feature iPads running the Tiare solution for selecting wine and cocktails.
“Dining at Volvér is about an all-encompassing experience: the service, the hospitality, and the ambiance are all of paramount importance,” said Chef Jose Garces. “Tiare’s Wireless WineList solution was the best choice for our restaurant to showcase our wine list as part of that experience.”
The Wireless WineList application, using patented technology, allows Volvér guests to easily view wines using an Apple iPad tablet and Tiare’s proprietary software. Guests can use the tablets to browse the wine list as well as sort the wines to display by region, varietal, price range or click to search the list to pinpoint a specific selection. The system displays extensive information about wine offerings, including tasting notes, vintage information, and background on the winery, region and grape varietals. Photos, wine labels and other information are also displayed.
“Tiare’s decade of experience in mobile ordering technology allows the company to provide not only an effective technical product, but also one that fulfills the needs of the sommelier and the restaurant,” said Jeffrey Krevitt, President of Tiare Technology.
Volvér Sommelier Gordana Kostovski, who is recognized by the Court of Master Sommeliers and recipient of two of Wine Spectator’s prestigious Awards of Excellence, oversees the wine program. “The Wireless WineList system is a highly customized solution, which was an essential feature for Volvér,” said Kostovski. She continued, “Tiare worked with us to enable Garces’ vision and the objectives of our wine program to really shine through, and I know that our guests will enjoy using the system.”
“The solution Tiare designed for Volvér reflects the care Ms. Kostovski has taken in crafting their wine program,” said Tiare Technology’s Chief Wine Officer, Jonathan Pullis, Master Sommelier. “For example, the extensive selection of grower Champagnes and sparkling wines from leading international producers are highlighted and accessible, with tasting notes and stories that make the wine list come alive for the guest. With such a diverse list, the system can help the guest identify the perfect selection as well as always discover something new and surprising.”“Tiare is honored to have been selected by Chef Garces to provide the Wireless WineList solution at Volvér, where the standard for guest service is so high,” noted Krevitt. “We are delighted the system will be able to contribute to the overall guest experience.”
Volvér offers two distinct experiences. Bar Volvér offers thoughtfully selected wines, with an emphasis on sparkling selections, hand-crafted cocktails, and a selection of small bites. Volvér features a decadent multi-course chef’s tasting in the intimate dining room with an ever-evolving menu that highlights seasonal ingredients prepared with modern techniques, all inspired by Chef Garces’ travels around the world.
