Cefour introduces Easy Wine Glass to caterers

The new ready-to-drink Easy Wine Glass from Cefour Wine & Beverage of Åhus, Sweden, contains a choice of wines, including Merlot, Rosé Syrah and Chardonnay in pre-filled and sealed plastic wine glasses.

The 18.75cl size is particularly appropriate for all types of outdoor events where the use of glass is not suitable for safety considerations. In addition, it offers the convenience of accurate portion control each time and no waste.

For caterers, the Easy Wine Glass means there are no personnel costs for preparing and pouring the wine, and queuing and serving times are reduced.  Consumers are able to enjoy a ready glass of wine without having to open a full bottle.

Two designs are offered – the traditional wine glass and a stemless version, which offers greater stability for aeroplane and train service.

The glasses are formed, filled and sealed using transparent PP/EVOH/PP sheet from RPC Cobelplast in Belgium on an Alfa machine. The EVOH barrier layer prevents oxygen ingress to help preserve the freshness and quality of the wine for up to 10 months.  The glasses are fully recyclable after use.

”Our Easy Wine Glass pre-filled concept considerably simplifies the handling of wine, eliminates spoilage and increases security when serving,” comments Mikael Bergholts, Cefour Wine & Beverage’s general manager.

“It is essential that the wine glasses look good, as well as being safe and practical, in order to reflect the premium image of the wines.”
