the drinks business launches English sparkling wine packaging award

the drinks business, in association with Sparflex, is proud to present a new award for excellence and innovation in English sparkling wine packaging as part of our annual awards.

As part of our 16th annual DB Awards, we have launched The Sparflex Award for Best English Sparkling Wine Packaging. In partnership with Sparflex, a leading producer of wine foils, wire hoods and labels, the award has been launched in recognition of the rapid growth in the English wine industry during the last 10 years.

In July last year, online aggregator Funding Options revealed that the English wine industry was worth £132 million, having nearly trebled over the last five years.

This year alone will see the release of the first sparklers from Sussex estate Rathfinny, the planting of a new vineyard by Michelin-starred hotel and winery Lympstone Manor and opening of Vagabond Wines’ new urban winery in Battersea.

Last year, Champagne Taittinger broke ground in Kent with the planting of its new vineyard at its estate Domaine Evremond, while Champagne Pommery released its first fizz in partnership with Hampshire wine producer Hattingley Valley and England Cricket legend Sir Ian Botham also revealed he would be producing an English sparkling.

Naturally, a premium product requires the equivalent level of packaging to reflect the quality of the liquid inside.

The award recipient can be a producer, a brand owner or a branding agency that delivers an eye-catching product which exudes luxury and desirability.
