A history of tradition. Champagne houses have in their history almost always created splendid gift sets or limited edition presentation cases for the end of the year holidays. Sales of Champagne during this time of year are so high that they represent nearly 30% of total annual sales: an opportunity to attract with creative and inventive packaging.
Champagne houses: Constantly Renewing
The creation of these special cases is a Champagne custom in the wine industry. The brands continuously create attractive bottles and sometimes true works of art, all while keeping the spirit of a true luxury good. The limited editions have reinforced this spirit of rarity and luxury in the representation of Champagne. However, access to these rare bottles is further complicated by the collaboration with artists in the creation of bottles and boxes, as prices increase. The idea is to create eye-catching products with a fantastic look that attract customers and Champagne lovers. The more innovative the houses are, the more customers will be interested in it. Somehow, new always attracts interest.
Some Champagne brands have always focused strategically on the world of art to demonstrate their refinement and cultural interest. As a Champagne House cannot distinguish itself by the choice of grape varieties, which remained essentially the same for years, it needed to find new ways to dust off its image. As such, art came to embellish the bottles. The creation of a Champagne is already art in itself, with its often complex blending. The beauty of the packaging has taken a special place to maintain the image of Champagne in the world of luxury, while adapting to current consumer trends.
