About the project
Beaulieu Vineyard is one of the longest continually operating wineries in the Napa Valley. In 2008, over a century on from its founding, the vineyard opened a state-of-the-art new winemaking facility. Five years on, following this successful investment came a particularly fine vintage, which would go on to be labeled “BV Rarity”.
This exceptional 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon received 99 points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and is noted for its aromas of blackberry and dark chocolate. Each magnum bottle comes individually numbered, tissue-wrapped, and stored in a premium presentation box custom-manufactured by GPA Global.
The project outcome
The finished pack is comprised of a hinged wooden box with a charred veneer finish. Custom features include plated metal L hinges and an electroplated metal lock and keyhole. The exterior is accented with gold metal decals and a blind engraved logo. Inside, the bottle is held in an EVA fitment lined with red PU leather. Continuing the metallic accents, we used hot-stamped gold foil to add the Beaulieu Vineyard branding besides the bottle fitment. In the lid interior, a recess holds two items: a flavor notebook, and a small gold key, which can be used to lock and unlock the case. Only 150 of these special cases will be manufactured and sent out each year.
