Carlsberg taps into wine market

A range of 15 new wines is being rolled out to pubs using Carlsberg's distribution service.

Under the brand name Invenio, the portfolio is exclusive to Carlsberg's on-trade customers, and has been sourced from countries and regions around the world including California, South Africa, and Australia. Packaging features details of the country of origin along with the varietal, plus tasting notes.

Carlsberg UK wine buyer Louise Boddington said: "Invenio offers outstanding, reasonably priced wine. It gives our trade customers the opportunity to retail a range of Old and New World styles for their customers at outstanding value for money under an on-trade exclusive label."

SiebertHead has created the branding identity for Invenio, which is Latin for, "to discover", including the gold font and design for the product's red, white and rose ranges. Artist Ruth Palmer has created eight illustrations featuring landscape designs to denote the country of origin for each wine.

Invenio white wines are produced from three varieties of grape. Invenio Chenin Blanc comes from South Africa, Sauvignon Blanc from Chile and Chardonnay from the United States. Of the red wines, Tempranillo is Spanish, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Italian and Shiraz Australian.

Although the selection is relatively small, it’s a good overall range whose wines represent a versatile assortment of various styles. Of the white wines, Chardonnay has the most oaken taste and is worth trying with pasta and cheese. Shiraz red wine is also good to sample at a pizzeria.
