Aragh Group, Glass – North America has expanded its portfolio with the introduction of six new glass wine bottle designs.

The new designs have three texture variants, a 375ml Claret style bottle and a 375ml Burgundy style bottle with a Stelvin finish and a 375ml Claret style bottle with a cork finish.

Ardagh North American glass business unit chief commercial officer John Shaddox said: “Innovative bottle designs and single-serve packaging formats provide wineries with opportunities for differentiation in today’s market.

“Ardagh’s new glass wine bottle options leverage a modern, premium look and feel that responds to consumer interest.”

In addition, Ardagh developed three new textures REMO, CUADRAS and VINA, that can be applied to a variety of bottles.

With the new bottles, consumers can mix and match varietal wines and sample products, which is convenient for single-serve options.
