Côtes de Provence celebrates its 40 years with a design competition

Côtes de Provence celebrates this year 40 years as an appellation. And there is reason to celebrate. Rosé wines from Provence have had incredible success in recent years. The world does not seem to be able to get enough of Provence rosé. As part of the celebration, a design competition was organized in June in collaboration with Verallia, a big manufacturer of glass bottles. The task of the contestants was to design an innovative bottle that gives a picture of today’s Provence.

The three winners all had their own interpretations of what they think Provence stands for. First prize was given to a designer named Caroline Charrel. She had chosen to focus on the historical legacy with a bottle reminiscent of Greek columns.

The jury’s coup de cœur (special price) looks more like a bottle for expensive cognac or perfume. I wonder which rosé producer will be tempted?
