Diamond Jubilee’ Birthday For Crystal Wine Bottles

New Zealand’s First Crystal Wine Bottles Made with Swarovski Elements, Mark ‘Diamond Jubilee’ Birthday

A limited number of custom-made wine bottles, made with genuine Swarovski Elements, will be launched in New Zealand later this week by iconic Marlborough-based vineyard, No.1 Family Estate.

No.1 Family Estate’s, Cuvée Adele, was lovingly created over a three year period, by award-winning winemaker and company owner, Daniel Le Brun, to honour the significant birthday of his wife and business partner, Adele Le Brun.

Mr Le Brun says only 200 cases of the hand crafted vintage cuvée have been made.

“We wanted a bespoke bottle which matched the quality of the wine, and reflected the significance of the event, and although crystal studded bottles have appeared before in France, this is an entirely new and exciting concept for the New Zealand market,” says Mr Le Brun.

Mrs Le Brun says she is looking forward to releasing the namesake wine made in celebration of the event, which she jokingly refers to as her “diamond jubilee birthday”.

“I am honoured to have this special vintage named after me, and we are excited about showcasing Cuvée Adele at the launch, where I will also perform a sabrage to mark the occasion, which is a traditional French technique for opening a wine bottle with a sabre, or champagne sword.” says Mrs Le Brun.

Vivienne Gee, Account Manager for Swarovski Elements business in New Zealand, says the crystals used are of the finest quality.

“SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS is the premium brand for the finest precision cut crystal elements manufactured by Swarovski in Austria. We were very excited to have the opportunity to work with Mr Le Brun on this project which is a first for New Zealand wine and the end result is absolutely exquisite,” says Mrs Gee.

Executive Director and Owner of Glengarry Wines, Jak Jakicevich, says the exclusivity of the wine adds to its allure.

“Every vintage produced by No.1 Family Estate is of the highest calibre, because method traditionelle is their specialty, and the Cuvée Adele is no exception to this rule,” says Mr Jakicevich.

“There has been a lot of excitement building around the release this week, so we are absolutely rapt to be hosting the launch event, and celebrating the unveiling of this fantastic product with the Le Brun family and our customers.”

The limited edition No.1 Family Estate Cuvée Adele will be officially released at the launch event on Friday at Glengarry Wines in Auckland, by Mr and Mrs Le Brun, who will be joined by their children - actress daughter, Virginie Le Brun, and son, Remy Le Brun.

Cuvée Adele will be available for sale this week from Glengarry wines in Auckland, selected wine stockists, and the No.1 Family Estate website www.no1familyestate.co.nz until stocks last.
