The STELVIN® adventure began in France in the 1960s, in the city of Chalon-sur-Saône in the heart of Burgundy. After several years of technical experiments and tests with professionals in the wine industry, the very first STELVIN® aluminium closure was developed in its final form in 1964 and the brand was officially registered in 1976.
At the time, the STELVIN® closure was deemed to be the ideal closure for Chasselas, a Swiss white wine that was particularly subject to cork taint. This brilliant invention was later recognized as the best solution to the shortage of corks in Australia in the 1990s.
Part of the Amcor group today, the STELVIN® brand continues to maintain its spirit of innovation, quality, reliability and service to provide customers with the very best closures.
