Fresh Sushi Paired with Fresh Wine by the Glass

Last Updated: May 3, 2024

When it comes to fresh sushi, only the freshest wine and/or saké will pair. Umi in Winter Park, FL uses the Wineemotion wine dispensing system to ensure freshness and consistency in their wine by the glass program.

Winter Park, Florida is a small suburban town in the greater Orlando area. It is well known as a “resort community” with its numerous golf courses, residential neighborhood communities, open park spaces and its street-side shopping district along Park Ave.

A winter time destination for many of the northern US’s retirees, Winter Park is a community built around a bustling retail and restaurant scene. Within that scene is a somewhat new addition, Umi Japanese Restaurant. The tapas style Japanese fusion restaurant allows guest to sample all sorts of delightful cuisine paired with over 40 wines, Japanese specialty premium beer and saké.

Twelve of their premium wines by the glass are offered on the Wineemotion wine dispensing system. This state-of-the-art system preserves wine for 30 days, pours up to three precise pour volumes and stores both red and white wines at their ideal temperatures. This system can also serve premium saké in any bottle size from 375 ml. to standard 1,500 ml. magnums.

“We find that the Wineemotion system is great for premium drinks other than red and white wines,” explains Roberto Rinaldini, president of Wineemotion USA and Rinaldini Distribution, Inc. “Umi is a perfect fit four our system because they wanted to offer higher price-point wines by the glass to their guests and have the option to serve saké from the system as well.”

Umi is proud to serve “the freshest Sushi & Sashimi in town…” and as far as the wine by the glass goes, they hold the same standard. Try a tasting before ordering a full glass or order a flight, the system ensures Umi’s staff a simple way to compliment the right wine (or saké) with their guests’ lunch and/or dinner.

Wineemotion wine dispensing systems are the latest generation of wine dispensing technology and distributed exclusively throughout the United States by Rinaldini Distribution, Inc. the first importer and distributor of wine dispenser in the United States since 2003.
