A new year is upon us, bringing refreshed optimism and new resolutions for many looking to the 12 months ahead. Reflecting on our past year we wanted to take a moment to share with you our greatest moments from 2017. We launched a compelling new product, cemented partnerships with industry leaders and continued to deliver strong business growth. Most importantly, we continued to evolve and innovate.

As with all Wineemotion systems, the SEI can be customized to match or elevate any décor and vision.

Norfolk’s premier dining and entertainment district is a central place where you can hang out, dine and relax with your whole family in Southeastern Virginia. The Waterside District features the best of national, regional and local restaurants and offers live music, festivals and more.

Located in the heart of the Waterside District is VIN Wine Bar, an eclectic wine bar, featuring an assorted small dishes menu paired with 30 wines by the glass in 6 Wineemotion Cinque machines.

Launch of our new Website


Launched in late 2017, our completely redesigned website is the best source for all Wineemotion related information. Under the all-new applications tab, one can see all the possible uses for a Wineemotion dispenser and now you can also custom build your very own system.

None of these accomplishments would occur without the dedication, inspiration and hard work from the entire Wineemotion USA team, our partners and our customers. We are grateful for the incredible year we’ve just experienced. As we continue on this journey, we are looking to build on our momentum and, together, continue an upward trajectory in 2018.
