How do you bottle products in tubes?
We have our own upscale higher level IFS and organic certified production facility in Hilversum, the Netherlands. We use a patented technology that preserves the qualities of the products by using an inert environment. The use of inert gas allows the wines to maintain their complete bouquet, flavor profile and mouthfeel throughout the fractionation process. We are one of a few companies worldwide who are able to (re)bottle wines and spirits like this.

How can I benefit from working with you in times of Covid?
We offer a unique sampling solution for the wine industry to showcase and launch wine in an effective way during pandemic. The coronavirus causes problems for businesses all over the world. Due to developments and measures taken, the wine industry has challenges to face as well. Big wine fairs and events, such as ProWein, Vinexpo and Bordeaux En Primeur have been cancelled and future fairs are postponed or under pressure. Also, visiting prospects and clients won’t be an option for a while. We know it is essential for you to still be able to showcase, advertise and launch your (new) products. We present a ‘by the glass sampling concept’ that is the way to do just that, in a time where fairs and face-to-face meetings are ruled out.
Where do I deliver my wine / spirits?
Drop offs can be made at our loading dock on Franciscusweg 28C, 1216 SK Hilversum, the Netherlands.
How does your bottling process work?
In short, this is how we work: Step 1: Before we can agree on a partnership, we perform a thorough test in our lab to see if your wine is suitable for bottling in tubes. If the result is positive, we can get started. Step 2: Your wine can be delivered to our production facility in bottles or in bulk. Once we have received the wine, we will perform oenological tests and a technical analysis to determine our starting point. This way we can compare the wine once bottled in tubes, to the wine that was delivered to us and make sure we have maintained the quality of your product. Step 3: In our certified production facility, the wine is transferred to our bottling machine. Step 4: In the meantime, the tubes have been printed with a design of your choice. Step 5: Now we are ready for bottling. Quality is most important to us and to ensure a high level of quality, we work according to certain standards and specifications. Our facility has a Higher Level IFS Certification and we are certified to bottle organic goods. Your wine is bottled in our tubes with the greatest of care. During this process our production team performs regular quality checks. Step 6: Once finished, a few samples go to our lab for a final test. Step 7: Your tubes will then be packed according to your preference and now they are ready for pick up!
