Top 10 inventive designs in wine packaging

Mumm Grand Cordon Stellar

Champagne Mumm entered the space race this year, having unveiled the results of a two-year project to design a bottle of Champagne, along with specially adapted glasses, that could be enjoyed in zero gravity conditions. Grand Cordon Stellar will be officially unveiled in September following a three-year project in partnership with space design specialists Spade.

The specially-designed clear glass bottle uses the pressure within the bottle to expel the wine, which in zero gravity emerges as a droplet of fizz, into a ring-shaped frame. This droplet can then be gathered in custom-made glasses, which are slightly concave and just five centimetres in diameter. They catch the droplet of wine, with surface tension enabling the fizz to stick to the glass and be ‘sipped’.

Mumm Grand Cordon Stellar will be served to guests on board zero gravity flights, while the house says it is also in talks with other agencies to supply the fizz on future space missions and commercial space flights.
