WHO WE ARE

Introducing wine packaging for a 21st century, sustainable world

At Garçon Wines, we're bringing about the most significant advancement to wine packaging in the last two centuries. We're doing this to prioritise sustainability, for the health of our planet, the wealth of our industry, and the happiness of consumers.

With essential and highly effective, changes to the shape and material of wine bottles, and rethinking the norms of secondary packaging, we’re revolutionising wine delivery and improving the retailing, logistics, eco-friendliness, and cost-effectiveness of wine.

"Something like 33 billion glass bottles will be used for wine around the world in 2018 – and the grotesque carbon footprint of almost all of them is unnecessary. This bottle could help."
— ANDREW JEFFORD, DECANTER
Where we've COME FROM

The origins of the flat wine bottle

Developed originally to facilitate the seamless delivery of wine into UK homes via the letterbox, our innovation was conceived by wine retailing entrepreneur Santiago Navarro and his co-founder Joe Revell.

They set out to improve consumer convenience, cut the costs of failed deliveries which in the UK alone are estimated to be £1.6 billion, and help to reduce the near 1 million kilograms 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 the wine industry, but also combines the emotional benefits of an elegant glass bottle, with the functional benefits of bag-in-box, and sets a new sustainable benchmark.

Where we're going

Welcome to the future of wine bottles

When our eco, flat bottles garnered much global coverage in the media and won many prestigious awards, we soon realised that our initial plan of delivering wine into consumers’ homes, as part of a UK wine subscription service, was simply thinking too small. With significant multinational potential and multi-channel interest, we set out to change the world of wine packaging. To support our ambitious plans, we protected our intellectual property in the UK and a further 34 countries for an extensive portfolio of design patents.

While we’re well-known for supplying Letterbox Wine® to UK gifting companies, we're extending our wine packaging and wine wholesale business internationally, offering both own-branded wines and sustainable wine packaging solutions fit for a 21st century world experiencing climate crisis, environmental damage, changing consumers, complex supply chains, and more.

“...this is a product that feels like the future. It is a really smart design...”
— National Recycling Awards Judging Panel 2019
