So… what inspires you?
Being inspired by a Sommelier bottle with Meritxell Falgueras on a beautiful afternoon looking out across the port of Barcelona offered us some interesting and new points of view.

Glòria Vallès, CEO at Winestyle, offered us her more business-oriented view: "I like it because it attracts me, I want to pick it up, I want to look at it, it has something different... It's fantastic for marketing departments".

Xavi Nolla, from Enoaula, told us about the first sensation the bottle gave him: "These bottles were saying 'Open me'... and then inviting me to enjoy what's inside..."

There is no longer any extra thickness formed by a counter ring or a rim, but an almost continuous line from the shoulder to the top of the ring.
Much more than a new glass ring, SOMMELIER is a complete concept that, while enhancing the overall silhouette and perceived quality of the bottle, offers real functional benefits.
