We’re a sustainable packaging start-up that’s bringing about the most significant advancement to wine bottles in the last two centuries. With essential and highly effective advancements to the shape and material of wine bottles we’re improving the eco-friendliness, retailing, logistics, and cost-effectiveness of wine. This enables a healthier planet, happier consumers and a more prosperous industry.
The world of wine is more affected than most by rising global temperatures. To help safeguard this industry for future generations, we need to introduce innovative, low carbon solutions where they can make the most impact. In wine, packaging is a carbon footprint hotspot; round, glass bottles are the single largest contributor to wine’s carbon footprint.
We believe that for packaging to truly make a scalable, positive environmental impact, it can’t compromise on consumer appeal and commercial viability. That’s why our bottles look beautiful, offer ultimate convenience and slash business costs throughout the supply chain.
From global manufacturing giants to regional trade associations, worldwide environmental bodies to government departments, our wider network is fundamental to our success. We're building strong relationships with valuable organisations across the globe at every stage of our product's life cycle to continue to advance our sustainable solutions. Below are just a few of those in our wider ecosystem.
In a special edition release, Letterbox Wine® – who deliver full-sized bottles of wine through an average UK letterbox – is collaborating with family-run artisanal spice company Spice Kitchen, to deliver letterbox-friendly DIY mulled wine kits.
The annual release of the prestigious TIME Best Inventions has seen Garçon Wines awarded with a special mention for their sustainable, flat wine bottles.
Participation in initiatives that champion and inspire future generations to advance the circular economy is something we’re continuously dedicated to at Garçon Wines. As an alumnus of the Emerging Innovator programme of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, a charity and global thought leader dedicated to accelerating the transition to a circular economy, the opportunity to play a part in this year’s From Linear to Circular Challenge was not one to miss.
We benefit from an extensive portfolio of granted registered designs and design patents in 35 countries, covering a broad range of flat bottle shapes. We understand the value of originality and have taken responsible steps to safeguard our invention, innovation, and creativity. In turn this protects consumers and businesses against poor quality imitations.
