Why does the 500cc wine bottle exist?

Around 2000, Trapiche launched a unique feature on the market: the 500 cc bottle.


Around 2000, the Bodega Trapiche launched a unique feature on the market: wine in a 500cc bottle. At that time, few wineries packed some specimens in a small container and generally, the one that did, was 375 cc for restaurants. In addition, they were wines of the type of table, designed to meet the need of those who could only afford to accompany the meal with a drink.

The launch of Trapiche was a half-liter Syrah Reserve. At that time it was known that it was a good game with very little production, this presentation was chosen to achieve a better performance. The surprise was that the audience welcomed its content and quantity very well: it was a container that allowed to share comfortably between two diners a good amount without going beyond a reasonable amount of alcohol. It was then that the winery decided to continue its production.

Ten years later, he was followed by other wineries such as La Rural and Zuccardi, among others. It seemed that it was the boom of the half-liter bottle, but its sale began to decay and discontinued.

Words aside deserve the packaged content. He's a very good representative of his strain. The violet color and strong red, aromas of black fruits, good trim and tear due to its passage through oak and long finish determine the balance found by the traditional brand. It is a fleshy wine, with aromas of licorice, tobacco and chocolate, with an intense taste of blackberries its persistence is long and pleasant.

Today, almost 20 years after its launch, Trapiche continues to produce its 500 cc Syrah Reserva, almost the only bottle with mid-range wine that we find in this presentation.
