Metropolitan Design: Accent Your Home's Stylish Decor
How Does It Work?
This wine system offers 3 individual wine chambers. After the cork is removed from the bottle, the bottle is fitted with a pouring assembly, and then secured into the wine chamber. Once inside the chamber, vacuum preservation begins immediately, removing oxygen from the bottle to preserve your wine. From a sleek, intuitive control panel, a varietal setting is selected, and the skybar automatically cools the wine to its ideal serving temperature. This wine system offers 9 pre-set temperatures for the most popular wine varietals; you may also manually adjust the wine chamber to your preferred serving temperature.
Why Is the skybar Right for You?
The skybar wine system takes the guesswork out of wine by ensuring your wine is served at its optimal temperature--highlighting each varietal's unique bouquet and flavor profile. With its multiple wine chambers, you can open three bottles of wine for your guests, allowing everyone to enjoy the wine they want. Also, because the bottles are preserved in the wine chambers for up to 10 days, you can enjoy the wine at your leisure, eliminating worry over wasted wine. And, with its metropolitan design, the skybar wine system is the ultimate accessory for the design-conscious host and hostess, certain to ignite conversation and incite admiration.

After a month or so of use the nozzles on 2 chambers clogged up and one of the chambers failed. I contacted the online supplier who were not too helpful but referred me to the manufacturer. The manufacturer service was outstanding! They immediately sent me out replacement parts at no cost and were extremely friendly and helpful. This makes such a difference and I never have any concern buying a product from a company like this that looks after their product. So refreshing!
The entire unit eventually died. I called customer service and had great results. They replaced the entire unit with a brand new one.
UPDATE (9/16/13): The Jarden company has finally responded to our second registered complaint letter with a replacement of two one-bottle units for the original three-bottle unit. This time, it appears the quality is better, and the unit(s) pressurizes better, and the wine tastes as it should (our test has been for 4 days with one same bottle in the unit with no off-taste). So far, our only complaints are that the fan is still pretty loud and not all "regular" 750ml wine bottles will fit the system. That requires decanting of wine from its original bottle into another bottle that fits better. If your bottle is completely full, you may have to "reinstall bottle" into the system which includes pouring out some of the wine, and we have noticed that we have to "reinstall bottle" when the neck size is slightly off. There are three rubber inserts that are supposed to solve the bottle neck fit issue yet have not worked for us. We have identified two bottles that fit and are keeping those in reserve for future need if a bottle doesn't fit.Read more ›
"For optimum cooling, thermoelectric products like the SkyBar Wine System should be in an environment with a room temperature of less than 70 F (21 C). A higher room temperature will result in a slightly warmer internal chamber temperature."
Now, I don't know about you, but the idea of air conditioning my home to 70 F during the summer is ridiculous. Most utilities and HVAC manufacturers recommend a summer setting of 78 F. Cooling my home to 70 F would exponentially increase the cost of operating the SkyBar and make it completely impractical.
In addition to the fan and temperature problems, within a month, two of the clear plastic spouts have broken loose due to minor bumps from wine glasses.
To recap the problems:
