Untouched by Light

Untouched by Light is the first sparkling wine in the world produced, sold and tasted in pitch darkness. Instead of designing a new label for Radgonske Gorice winery (Slovenia), which was the initial tasks of the agency Bruketa&Zinic&Grey, a completely new product was developed, based on the research that proves the exposure of sparkling wine to daylight or artificial lighting results in light-struck aromas (goût de lumière). That is why Untouched by Light is produced in complete absence of light. The night harvest, bottle rotation in caves and packing are all done with night vision goggles. Once out of the cave, the wine is protected inside a 99% black bottle and wrapped into light-proof and airtight vacuum bag for additional protection. "We can now taste the fullness of the wine's terroir", said Klavdija Topolovec Spur, Radgonske Gorice's Oenologist. New recyclable materials are currently being tested which can offer the same protection. Video:
