After a difficult period, we have returned to social life with more enthusiasm than ever. Large celebrations are the order of the day and large-format bottles are gaining in importance.

Advantages of using magnum bottles:

  1. Saving space: this type of bottle saves space as you can have two or three conventional bottles in a single bottle. 
  2. More sustainable: by carrying up to two or three conventional bottles in a single bottle, we save on glass, which reduces the price per litre of wine. In addition to being more sustainable for the environment, the thicker the layer of glass, the better the temperature is maintained. This saves on refrigeration.
  3. More elegant: undoubtedly one of the greatest attractions of this bottle format is its elegance and elegance. Ideal to surprise and give as a gift on any occasion.
