The Glass Workshop
After an observation period and receiving positive feedback from vintners, we boldly decided, in 2017, to launch our own Wineglobe production plant in Bordeaux. With the support and guidance of new engineers and by ramping up the glass-related skills of our internal R&D and Atelier Paetzold teams, the Glass Workshop is materializing. It is still under construction and we hope to melt our first vats by the summer of 2021. They will hold 400 liters
Living up to that challenge represents a true technical, human and financial feat for us. It is perfectly in synch with our DNA as far as creation and ‘made in France’
Made in France
We fully control the entire process so as to provide tools that completely suit oenology.
• Oenological & oenotechnical awareness
Thanks to our teams’ long experience and expertise, we can minutely monitor batches and vintages all along the way.
• Reactivity and production perfection
We are able to make adjustments at every stage from the first draft to delivery. It’s a quality guarantee because our physical presence on site ensures such reactivity and control during each production step.
• Being part of the great ‘Made in France’ experience
: We have always been intent on manufacturing in France to support and showcase the skills that stand for quality as well as encouraging the local and responsible economy. Manufacturing in France is also a way of respecting the environment: an original creation with a perennial material (investment over the next 10/20 years).
« For us manufacturing in France has nothing to do with a fleeting trend. To the the contrary, that has been our philosophy since 1991. We are intent on being committed, and following each step from conception to production. Our innovations provide meaning, the best of our expertise and optimum quality.»
« The group has set environmental performance as one of its core strategic goals, on the same level as creativity, innovation or performance quality.»
R&D AND DESIGN
Currently, the 220-liter WINEGLOBES that are available for purchase are outsourced and mouth-blown. Quantities are limited since the production of one piece requires 4 blowers.
