A wine bottle for Bern

Vetropack’s Swiss plant in St-Prex is producing new cuvée-coloured wine bottles for the canton of Bern. The 0.75-litre bottles may only be filled with wine made in the canton.

There are many ways to draw a bear. But when it comes to the one engraved on the wine bottle with its high cork finish, there is no room for compromise. This is because the famous bear of Bern is depicted here: a black bear also adorns the coat of arms of the city and canton of Bern. Vetropack Switzerland is producing the wine bottles in cuvée. The design of this special bottle is simple and yet very elegant.

The 0.75-litre bottles may only be filled with wine made in the local area. Varieties including Chasselas, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are cultivated in the canton, which is divided between two winegrowers’ associations – covering the Lake Biel and Lake Thun/Bern areas, the two associations represent their respective region’s interests.
