More than standard

Three Vetropack employees were among those who helped plant a vineyard for the Puklavec winery in Slovenia. The fruity wine is well protected in the 0.75-litre glass bottle produced by Vetropack’s Croatian plant.

Vetropack Straža has been providing the family-owned company Puklavec with glass bottles for its fruity wine for a long time now. The standard bottle in cuvée with a screw cap has space for 0.75 litres of the delicious wine from Slovenia's Lower Styria region.

The Šipon 2016 wine is, so to speak, Vetropack’s own wine. Three years ago, the Puklavec family decided to plant a vineyard complete with new vines. Business partners, local politicians, the Wine Queen and other famous personalities were invited to the planting of 31,000 Furmint vines – an old white wine variety. Vetropack employees Josipa Tepeš (sales administration), Goran Vurnek (sales representative) and Darko Šlogar (Head of Sales and Marketing) were also at the event. Everyone present at the planting of the vines was able to take home some wine in personalised bottles. Although the grapes were first harvested in 2016, they weren’t presented until after the 2017 harvest. The Vetropack wine is refreshing and has discreet notes of green apples and bananas. “Your wine is very unique and has a strong character”, said Mitja Herga, director of the winery and head oenologist, during the presentation.
