SPARKLING WINE CAPSULES PRODUCTION: the way from customer concept to order performance (part 1)

Brands pursue to create an emotional bond with potential consumers. That is one of the reasons why so much attention is paid to packaging design. Wine bottle capsules have the same important purpose: to attract attention and talk about the product. Consumers research confirms that people prefer packaging that not only guarantee the product safety, but also has an aesthetic appearance and is easy to open.

Sparkling wine capsule is a part of wine culture. It presents the brand and talks about winemaking traditions. Capsules were first used in the 18th century to protect the cork in the bottleneck during storage, transportation, and aging. This was especially important for wines that were intended for long cellaring before consumption. At first the capsule served as a barrier between the cork and the environment: it protected the cork and the wine in the bottle from deterioration due to mould, insects, and rodents. Capsules also helped to identify wines during horizontal storage in wine cellars. Later, it became a tamper-evident device against adulteration of wine and an element of bottle identity, with the help of which brands still communicate with their customers.

Why do winemakers use sparkling wine capsules today?

1. Saves the bottleneck from the direct contact with dirt, moisture and protect the cork from deterioration and desiccation.

2. Guarantees the quality purchase, proving bottle integrity from the bottling place to consumer hands.

3. Provides better brand awareness as create a total-look brand identity together with the bottle label.
