27th June 2016, UK: Event Wine Solutions has launched a selection of superior quality wines created exclusively for the outdoor events industry. The new brands, Sulis Cuvée Prestige and Takahé Mountain, join the existing Applause varietal and Comte de Bernadotte premium ranges to create more choice for event visitors.
The 2016 wine portfolio from Event Wine Solutions therefore consists of four different ranges; opening with the accessible and popular Applause range, the new additions of its Takahé Mountain and Sulis Cuvée Prestige selections and culminating it the premium, Comte de Bernadotte selection.
The specialists in outdoor wines and specifically the PET, non-glass formats, Event Wine Solutions is already spear-heading increasing demand for great wine at festivals and events. Taking its name from a rare, flightless and vibrantly coloured bird of South Island, New Zealand, the Takahé Mountain Sauvignon Blanc is a deliciously zesty and fragrant wine, at an affordable mid-level price point.
Similarly priced sits the new Sulis Cuvée Prestige selection of wines from southern France. The blends are selected from wines produced near the town of Minerve, which is named after the Roman goddess Minerva, or Sulis in Celtic. With favourite consumer grape varieties such as Viognier, Pinot Noir and Malbec in the Sulis selection, they are perfect for matching with the exciting food flavours found at today’s outdoor events.
“Our research ahead of the summer shows us that the more choice we offer customers – across different grape varieties, flavour profiles and at varying price levels – the more we see increasingly strong growth in wine sales,” commented Paul Scaife, CEO & Founder of Event Wine Solutions.
“Our wines have been hand-selected to ensure the best quality possible and to meet the demands of the most discerning consumer. We then bottle them in our full sized 75cl plastic wine bottles. This allows great wine to be shared and reduces time spent queuing at the bar. For event organisers it means more margin on wine sales, reduced littering, the elimination of glass damage and physical weight of stock on site,” concludes Scaife.
The Sulis Cuvée Prestige and Comte de Bernadotte ranges will be on show throughout the summer events season, including The Isle of Wight Festival, Larmer Tree Festival, Cowes Week, Cornbury, Greenwich Music Time and many, many more.
