  • Does drinking wine before going to bed help you lose weight?

    Today, let’s talk about lifestyle & health. We all know that drinking wine in moderation can do good things for your body. But did you know that drinking a glass of wine before sleeping could help you to lose weight?

    Especially white wine!

    According to the researchers at Washington State University and Harvard, a study was recently carried out and proving that two glasses of wine a day can help fight obesity by up to 70%. To come to such a conclusion, the researchers analyzed the results of two groups. In all, 20 000 people were involved in this study.

    What makes wine so magical?

    A glass of wine contains less than 5 grams of carbohydrates (beer has about 13 to 20 grams). Wine also has slimming properties thanks to the special substance called “Resveratrol”. According to experts, this substance can inhibit the increase of fat in the cells of the body.

    Maybe the next popular drink will be the white wine.  Who knows!

    What are you waiting for to order your Mixed Wine Pallet or container? Just make sure your pallet arrives before customers claim all the White Wine.

  • Create your own custom labels

    Did you know that Wine Palette also offers you the possibility to create your own personalized wine bottle labels in keeping with your markets, your customers, their needs…? Our client Tim also did it and does not regret it…  He gives us his opinion.

    INTERVIEW

    Why did you create your own custom wine labels? What was your project?

    We wanted to launch a Côtes de Provence Rosé in Australia under our company brand of 500 Wines. Customer feedback indicated that our clients wanted to drink French Rosé and not Australian Rosé in the warmer months of the year.

    When and where did you launch your custom wine labels? Did it work?

    We launched our labelled wines in Sydney, Australia in November in time for the Australian Summer. It was very successful and 70% of our Rosé has already been sold.

    What added value do your custom wine labels bring to your bottles?

    Our loyal customers were able to purchase French Rosé with our brand (500 “Mon Plaisir” Rosé).
    In Australia, it is more prestigious to serve French Rosé than Australian Rosé. Our 500 “Mon Plaisir” Rosé has helped us greatly here.

    Would you say that your custom labeled wine bottles have better targeted your
    customers?

    Yes, absolutely. We have a strong and loyal customer base in Australia and I feel that by creating custom labels, we have been able to respond to the needs of our customers and provide them with something that did not exist in the Australian wine market.

    How did you design your wine bottle labels? Where did you get the idea? How did
    you choose the packaging?

    Our design team created the labels, in consultation with Wine Palette, who greatly assisted in helping to cover the specific legal requirements for export, particularly for the specific information needed for the back label. The labels were based on our existing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir label design but with a different colour scheme to reflect the product and variety.

    Are you satisfied with your experience and would you recommend it?

    The team at Wine Palette has been very professional and made the overall experience very enjoyable of creating our own label for french wine for export to Australia, We are now discussing two more custom labelled products for export to the United Kingdom and Australia. I would highly recommend this service to anyone interested in creating their own labelled wine.
