A comprehensive solution for wine sampling

We package wine for sampling, from bottle to tube, in the safest most convenient way…
As a wine producer, a distributor, you want your clients & consumers to be able to taste and review your product. With Vinitube you can reach up to 15 customers per bottle using our single serve tubes.

A simple all-inclusive process:

  • Handcrafted for you: Our minimum batch is one bottle so you can even consider your rarest wines to be shared among your clients.
  • Deliver your bottles to our premises, collect your samples from us.
  • We can label and pack them in luxury boxes or envelopes,
    we can even ship the samples to your clients on your behalf.

Quality control:

We know just how fragile wines are therefore we take the utmost care with your bottles. From the opening of the bottle under a neutral atmosphere, free of oxygen, the wine is decanted into the Vinitube and closed with tamper evident capsules under a continuous flow of pure argon. The entire process is monitored to avoid any possible alteration of your precious wine’s qualities.  The final product standards are controlled by a laboratory.

Hygiene is key:

Our 45ml Vinitubes are made of virgin PET. They are sterilized and rinsed through a reverse osmosis washer system to make sure no residue or water-soluble particles could contaminate your wine.

Shelf life:

Just like any wine, maturation is influenced by time. The rate of evolution is accelerated in smaller packaging. Magnums age more slowly than half bottles. The pace of evolution by 45 ml is accelerated. Vinitube has undergone extensive testing with wine and proves to maintain its perfection for months if properly stored. It is advised to store Vinitube just like a regular bottle of wine – in a cool place, shielded from direct light. This way we had some wines kept fresh up to 10 months in tubes.
