At Garçon Wines we're bringing about the most significant advancement in wine packaging in the last two centuries to prioritise sustainability. With simple, yet effective, changes to the shape and material of the wine bottles and rethinking the norms of secondary packaging, we’re revolutionising wine delivery and improving the retailing, logistics and eco-friendliness of wine.
Developed to facilitate the hassle-free delivery of wine into the home via the letterbox, our innovation was conceived by co-founder Joe Revell who teamed up with wine retailing entrepreneur Santiago Navarro to improve consumer convenience and help to reduce the 900,000kgs of carbon emissions associated with missed deliveries in the UK.
Santiago’s eureka moment of flattening a wine bottle not only created a product that respects the heritage and tradition of wine industry but also unites the emotional benefits of an elegant glass bottle with the functional and sustainable benefits of bag in box.
When our bottles garnered much global interest in the media and from prestigious award wins, we soon realised that our initial plan of delivering wine into consumers’ homes as part of a wine subscription service was just the tip of the iceberg. With such potential and global interest, Garçon has now protected its intellectual property in the UK and a further 34 countries for an extensive portfolio of flat drinks bottle designs.
While we’re well-known for supplying Letterbox Wine® to gifting companies we're extending our drinks packaging and wine wholesale business internationally, offering both wine in our bottles and sustainable wine packaging fit for the 21st century world of e-commerce, complex logistics and climate change.
June 2019 sees the UK-based start-ups’ first international debut with De Bijenkorf – the most prestigious department store in the Netherlands that is also part of the Selfridges Group – and a collaboration with personalised gifting company Emagination Store, to launch a bespoke indulgence gift with renowned multinational confectionery giant, Mondelēz International.
De Bijenkorf is committed to offering their customers a unique, exciting and premium shopping experience whilst remaining at the leading edge of retail, and will introduce both the 2017 Flaca Chilean Merlot and a 2018 Chilean Sauvignon Blanc from the Garçon Wines range.
Garçon Wines, the inventors of innovative, eco, flat wine bottles, which can be posted through an average UK letterbox, have collaborated with personalisation experts Emagination Store to post a personalised wine bottle and Green & Black’s chocolate selection package through doors across the country, launching in time for Father’s Day.
Garçon Wines have granted IP protection in 35 countries for an extensive portfolio of flat bottles. We understand the value of originality and have taken responsible steps to safeguard our invention, innovation and creativity, in turn protecting consumers and businesses against poor imitations.
