Belle Glos Wines Feature a New Pull-Tab with the 2014 Vintage

Posted on May 16, 2016

(St. Helena, CA; May 16, 2016) – Belle Glos Pinot Noirs, produced from single vineyards from California’s most noteworthy coastal wine-growing regions, now feature a discreet pull-tab on their distinctive hand-dipped red wax seals with the current 2014 vintage.

While the eye-catching red wax seal has always been a distinguishing characteristic of the Belle Glos bottle, the atypical wine closure was sometimes found to be difficult to open by trade and consumers. The new proprietary pull-tab eliminates this problem, allowing for easy removal of the wax and access to the cork. Belle Glos Winemaker Joe Wagner says, “We love the generously-sized wax seal, and with the addition of the pull-tab, we’ve made it possible to retain the elegance and uniqueness of wax, a closure that is normally reserved for one-of-a-kind, large format bottles.”

The pull-tab was made available with the 2014 vintage, released this past fall and available for purchase now. Available as part of Joe Wagner’s Copper Cane Wines & Provisions portfolio, perennial Belle Glos offerings include the Dairyman, Las Alturas, and Clark & Telephone Pinot Noirs, all vineyard designates. Belle Glos is named for Wagner’s grandmother, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner, who was a co-founder of Caymus Vineyards.
