Light, unbreakable and sustainable - with its aluminum bottles, Hinterkopf brings a breath of fresh air to the wine scene. The 250ml packaging is easy to transport and allows special moments of pleasure anytime and anywhere. Modern digital printing technology enables individual packaging concepts that are also economically attractive for smaller wineries.
The innovation offers much more than a fashionable alternative to the traditional large glass bottle. It also offers smaller wineries and winegrowers the option of presenting their product in a high-quality way with little effort, as Alexander Hinterkopf, managing director of the family-run specialist for the production and printing of tubes, cans and sleeves made of aluminum or plastic, explains: "With our digital printing technology, winegrowers can easily implement an individual marketing concept on the bottles - and this extremely economically. Because with digital printing, the costs for decoration are linear.” The price for printing per bottle is therefore always the same, regardless of whether it is a small series or a batch with one million containers. Even the smallest batch sizes for limited editions can therefore be produced economically. Even a one-off or a sample container costs no more than a large-quantity bottle.
Another advantage of digital printing: the extremely brilliant, printed image from the first to the last bottle in a batch. The latest generation of digital printing machines from Hinterkopf allows for dot resolution of up to 1,800 dpi, maximum edge sharpness, legible printing of very small font sizes and the uniform representation of colour gradients even on large areas.
Incidentally, aluminium bottles not only offer the advantage of being unbreakable. Due to the higher thermal conductivity compared to glass and better cold storage, the contents can be cooled down to the desired drinking temperature faster - i.e. more energy-efficiently - and then maintain it longer. The screw cap also prevents the wine from corking if it is stored for a long time. In addition, the reliable sealability keeps the contents fresh from the first to the last sip.
