Opening wine made easier and cleaner with Amcor's Easypeel capsule

  • Amcor

A new capsule design from Amcor is making wine easier to open, while preserving time-honoured traditions that are important to discriminating aficionados.

The EASYPEEL wine-opening system uses a one-piece aluminium capsule engineered to open wine bottles along a clean line, every time. Unlike other technologies that rely on pull tabs, EASYPEEL allows consumers and professionals to use traditional bottle openers.

“We created EASYPEEL for everyone who loves wine,” explained Nicolas Freynet, General Manager, Amcor Capsules. “From people enjoying a glass with dinner to those serving dozens of bottles daily, everyone can now cut a perfect line, every time.

“The most important beneficiaries of this innovation, however, may be the wine makers themselves.”

With EASYPEEL, users place the knife from an opener at a point indicated on the capsule and peel back to create a clean and consistent opening. The improved design prevents tearing, over-cutting or removing the entire capsule – all of which can detract from the carefully crafted aesthetics wine brands work to develop.

The system requires no design or manufacturing changes during the bottling process. Also, the aluminium capsules offer the elegance of tin at a considerably more stable price.
