Uva Wine Bar Launches New Mobile App For iPhone Users

PLYMOUTH, MA (March 11, 2020) – Uva Wine Bar, New England’s first and only self-serve wine bar, located in America’s Hometown of Plymouth, Mass. has created a mobile app that customers can use to enhance their experience at Uva Wine Bar. When customers download the Uva app, they can access Uva’s extensive list of wine offerings, provide star ratings for the wines (and see other average ratings), create a personalized Favorites list of wines, and make weekday reservations at Uva.

“South Shore residents have embraced the self-serve technology at Uva Wine Bar and we’re so excited to take that technology offering to the next level,” said Katy Gaenicke, co-owner of Uva Wine Bar. “We often are asked if we have a current wine list, but our wine offerings are constantly changing. With our new mobile app, customers will now be able to see what is currently in the self-serve WineStations at Uva, in real time. They will also get to see what others think of each wine and create a list of their favorite Uva wines so they don’t have to take pictures of the labels, or try to remember what they liked.”

The Uva Wine Bar mobile app can be downloaded for free at the Apple Store. Uva’s wine lovers will enjoy these primary features within the mobile app:

  1. Wine List – Uva features 48 wines in the self-serve WineStations as well as Prosecco and Sangria behind the bar. The wines are changed out on a regular basis and customers can see in the app what is currently in the WineStations. Wines that have been rotated out of the WineStations will still be visible in the app, but will be shaded to avoid confusion. The wine list can be filtered by grape variety and region/country.
  2. Star Ratings – Customers are able to rate the wines at Uva on a 1 to 5 star basis. That information will be averaged and made visible to all customers so they can see what others think of a specific wine before they try it.
  3. Favorites – When a customer finds a wine that they love, they will be able to create their own personalized “favorites” list within the Uva app. They simply tap the heart next to that wine label and it is automatically saved, so they can refer to their personalized favorites list during their next visit to Uva.
  4. Reservations – Uva accepts reservations for parties of six or more Sunday through Thursday. Customers will be able to make a reservation directly through the app.

Uva Wine Bar, located at 46 Main St in Plymouth, Mass. offers 48 different wines from around the world through self-serve WineStations. Customers can get a 1.5 oz. taste, a 3 oz. half glass, or a full 6 oz. pour of any of the wines. The wine bar was founded in 2019 by Katy Gaenicke and Michelle Manware, who share a passion for wine, and decided to open Uva after discovering this self-serve technology while on vacation. Uva’s operating hours are 2 to 8 p.m. Sunday, 4:30 to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 4:30 to 11 p.m. Friday, and 2 to 11 p.m. Saturday. For more information visit www.uvawineplymouth.com

 

Uva Wine Bar Donates $3,000 To Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital – Plymouth Cardiovascular Services

PLYMOUTH, MA (March 5, 2020) – In observance of American Heart Month in February, Uva Wine Bar, the South Shore’s first and only self-serve wine bar created a month-long “Sip Red For Heart Health” campaign to raise funds for Cardiovascular Services at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital Plymouth (BID – Plymouth). Uva raised $3,000 through sales of all red wines and a special Merlot Wine Tasting event.

It is a well-known fact that drinking moderate amounts of wine, specifically red wine, results in reduced rates of heart disease. Researchers believe that red wine’s high concentration of polyphenol antioxidants can help reduce the risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and metabolic diseases. During Uva’s “Sip Red For Heart Health” campaign, the Plymouth wine bar pledged 15% of sales from red wines throughout the month of February in 2020. Uva also hosted a Merlot wine tasting event where five dollars from each of the 25 tickets sold was donated to BID – Plymouth. Both of these efforts resulted in a donation that was rounded up to $3,000.

“Many people remarked about how generous they thought this donation was, but it would not have been possible without our amazing customers who came to Uva throughout the month and enjoyed the 24 red wines we offer on a daily basis,” said Katy Gaenicke, co-owner of Uva Wine Bar. “We are grateful that Uva has been so well received in the Plymouth community and we feel it is important for us to give back to the community that has made us so successful right from the start!”

Uva Wine Bar, located at 46 Main St in Plymouth, Mass. offers 48 different wines from around the world through self-serve WineStations.
