Animal.Wine: Natural, balanced wines

Doppelleu Boxer AG, known for its excellent craft beers, has added another category to its portfolio: animal.wine with three animal inspired wines in a cheeky, trendy design. Animal.wine stands for natural and authentic wines in the typical style of the respective region. They are well balanced and very aromatic.

With animal.wine, Doppelleu Boxer aims first and foremost to provide the restaurateur with a coordinated range of drinks at the table, so that they can focus on their core business, which is creating a varied and enjoyable menu for their guests. Animal.wine, as an addition to the brands Chopfab, Boxer, Doppelleu and 1er Cru, provides one more option to choose from.

New at Doppelleu Boxer: animal.wine

From beer to wine – a supposedly big step is smaller than expected, because the principle behind animal.wine, is a personal connection to the best oenologists in the countries who vinify the respective wines. These oenologists are leaders in their regions and share the same values as Doppelleu Boxer AG: they are individual, seasoned, experienced and excellent connoisseurs and assume the same role a master brewer would, by travelling around to find the best ingredients for his beer creations.

Ad

The oenologist visits the wine growers who cultivate the grape varieties that are typical of the region. He selects the best and most suitable grapes and blends them together in order to achieve top quality and variety, much in the same way as Doppelleu Boxer AG does with its beer. At the same time the oenologist assures that the wines are authentic and a true representation of the traditional variety. The aim is not producing a wine that tastes like all wines of this variety, regardless of where it comes from, but to produce a wine that is as authentic and typical as is known in its area of origin.

Outstanding beverages are definitely allowed to attract attention and evoke emotions. The black bottle with the characteristic animal design follows the bold positioning of the Doppelleu Boxer beers and reflects the accessibility of the animal.wine concept.

The idea for the animal association and design is the fruit of the renewed collaboration with the design agency schneiterpartner. Andy Schneiter and his team knew how to transfer the characteristics of each wine to the outside of its bottle. A minimalist design in black and white adorns the simple bottles and the wine becomes a trendy eye-catcher at the table.

Animal.wine starts with this trio: Tipsy Turtle 2018, Sauvignon Blanc, Friuli, Wicked Wolf, 2018, Pinot Grigio, Friuli and Criminal Owl, 2016, Sangiovese, Merlot, Toscana Rosso.
