Vertex Sky Bar is one of the first Rapid City Restaurants to introduce Tastevin

Vertex Sky Bar, one of the leading Rapid City restaurants, is proud to feature Tastevin as part of their food and beverage experience. This state of the art app is designed in an easy to use, approachable format that assists customers with wine and beverage selection.

Currently used in 14 states and Canada, Tastevin was created by John Jordan, CEO of Jordan Vineyard & Winery, and wine technology entrepreneur, Josh Hermsmeyer, who saw an unmet need in the fast-growing tablet wine list market and created a second company to develop Tastevin. Tastevin is the most dynamic, comprehensive digital wine list solution in the marketplace.

The Tastevin experience includes tasting notes, menu specific food pairings, labels and photos. All of these features assist the customer with choosing what beverage to order. Tastevin also integrates with inventory, so there are no worries of ordering a bottle of wine that is not in stock.
Mary Beth Seamends, Director of Sales and Marketing for Black Hills Hospitality, LLC says, “Tastevin will not detract from the importance of the server and customer service. Rather, it will enhance the entire experience for the customer.”

The Tastevin interactive beverage list can be found at the Vertex Sky bar, located on the upper levels of the Hotel Alex Johnson. Sit atop the rooftop of the Hotel Alex Johnson and bask in the sunset with a glass of the finest wine or supremely mixed cocktail l in South Dakota. Relax with a beautiful view of the Black Hills as you enjoy the not only an extensive wine list, but entrees and desserts made by an Executive Chef at Vertex Sky Bar.
