Viiva can withstand liquid pressure up to 5 Gas Volume and keep a sparkling wine’s carbonation for weeks after opening – even when it is laid on its side in the fridge.
Simon Yudelevich, sales and marketing manager for Guala Closures Australia, said: “Viiva brings all the advantages a still wine screwcap has over cork firmly into the sparkling arena. It’s safe and easy to open and can be re-sealed without any damage to the quality of the fizz, which dramatically increases the opportunities for by-the-glass sales and drinking.”
The closure, which was developed in a five-year collaboration between Guala and glass manufacturer O-I Glass, launched in Australia last week with De Bortoli’s Willowglen and Trevi ranges.
De Bortoli national sales manager Peter Yeoman said: “We’ve made the decision to convert the entirety of these two ranges exclusively to the new closure because this technology is truly ground-breaking and will put Australia’s sparkling wine industry at the forefront of innovation.”
