How can the gap between technological maturity and the phenolic content in red wines be managed?
18 October, 2016

The 2016 harvests kicked off a month ago with the sparkling wines and thus far, the vintage has been one of the most plentiful in many years.

The growing and maturation conditions have been good, with little water stress in spring and during summer, and after ripening, temperatures have been high but with a good range between days and nights.

  • Our Dyostem® monitoring system shows the key trends of red grape varieties in the North California region: 
  • No maturation blockage;
  • Medium to large-sized berries, fairly concentrated in sugar, but with low YAN content;
  • An average precocity that leads to “normal” harvest dates;
  • Good to great potential for fruity wines.

In these almost perfect conditions, there’s great temptation to push maturity as far as possible.

However, this decision could have consequences on the alcohol’s impact in terms of the balance in the palate, the color stability and the appearance of dry vegetal aromas.

Here are some tips for adjusting the techniques used to optimize 2016 red grape potential. 

Boost the fruit and bring vivacity to the wines 

As mentioned above, the weather in August and September will allow the ripe fruit aroma windows to be attained for most vineyards.

A “ripe fruit” harvest may have a significant impact on the level of alcohol, which may lead to aggressive end notes, particularly if there’s a high polyphenolic concentration. This may also include color instability.

Depending on the situation, several working areas may be implemented to preserve the color intensity and lower the tannin aggressiveness:

  • limit extraction at the end of the AF to avoid an excess of astringency,
  • for the ripest grapes, or those with a palate unbalanced by the alcohol, adding Boisé BF and AFR oak chips raises the fruit level and adds vivacity to reduce aggressive end notes linked to the alcohol (2g/l of AFR + 1 g/L of BF in AF or post-AF),
  • micro-oxygenation during aging, with a moderate to average input, will help to stabilize the coloring matter and round up the tannin expression in the palate.

Lower the vegetal perception

On certain blocks, which have experienced slight water stress, choosing a later harvest date may lead to the evolution of fresh vegetal characters to dry vegetal aromas.

The perception of these dry vegetal traits can be lowered by the addition of wood, with or without micro-oxygenation.

Based on the kind of vegetal notes to be managed, we can work as follows:

  • for fresh vegetal, add a moderate to large amount of oxygen between the AF and the MLF, as well as Boisé DC180 or SC180XL chips (1 to 2g/l of DC180 or SC180XL post AF, SC180XL to be reserved for wines lacking body),
  • for dry vegetal, add wood via a mix of Boisé BF (1 g/L) + AFR (2 g/L) + DC180 or DC190 (1g/L) + DC310 (0.5 g/L) post AF.  

Our solutions for optimizing the 2016 Reds harvest

Preserving the fruit and the color of the wines

The slow and moderate input of oxygen fills the mid-palate, transforms the polyphenolic structure of the wines and makes them more resistant to oxidation. It’s the  perfect tool for preserving the fruit  and  color of the wines while lowering their tannin  aggressiveness in the palate. The Visio and Eco2+ range allow  the safe input of this oxygen.

Need Freshness? We’ve thought of that...

Boisé AFR comes from a wood selection with very low toasting, specially designed to bring freshness and vivacity to your wines by improving palate imbalances caused by the alcohol. Complemented by Boisé BF chips, whose main goal is to add volume to the mid-palate, you will bring back concentration and balance in the mouth.

Vivelys Selects G3 Enterprises as U.S. Distributor for Boisé Oak Chips
08 July, 2016

High-Quality French Oak Chips Offer Consistency and an Innovative Range of Offerings to Create Precise Wine Profiles

G3 Enterprises 300x200MODESTO, Calif.  (July 8, 2016) — The Oeneo Group and G3 Enterprises, Inc. announced today that they will expand their partnership to include exclusive U.S. distribution of the Boisé® brand, a line of premium oak products helping winemakers to create precise and consistent wine profiles. Owned by the French company Vivelys, the Boisé brand is recognized as a world leader in innovative oak alternatives.

“Our goal is to combine the Boisé technical expertise with the strong sales and customer service of G3,” said Fida Bouchabke, CEO of Vivelys. She added, “G3 understands that Boisé oak chips enable winemakers to create very precise and consistent wine profiles, making the chips superior to other oak alternative products currently on the market.”

Boisé shares the same winemaking vision as its parent company, Vivelys: to enhance and customize the heritage of wine by integrating innovation at the heart of the production line.   Boisé focuses on French Quercus Cecile Oak, which is considered among the very best oak wood available. Each of the eleven available chip styles has specific organoleptic characteristics that enable the winemaker to directly impact the wine aromatic profile and the balance in the mouth.

“We are excited to expand our partnership with Oeneo.  Together, we’ve had great success with DIAM cork closures and we are confident we’ll achieve similar success for Vivelys’ Boisé oak chips,” said Mihailo Panovich, Vice President of Sales for G3 Enterprises.  He added, “We look forward to leveraging G3’s strong sales and customer service support to meet the needs of winemakers throughout the country.”

While G3 will bring its wide distribution network and customer service expertise to the partnership, Vivelys will continue to have consultants based in California to help address customer needs and answer technical questions about the oak chips.

“We are pleased to work with our partners at G3 Enterprises to enhance Boisé® oak chips’ position in the U.S. wine market,” said Francois Moriniere, CEO of Oeneo.  He added, “This partnership has been very effective and we’re excited to now begin focusing on Boisé®.”

G3 Enterprises Gearing Up for Big Year
25 January, 2016

Focus on Innovation, Quality and Technical Services with New Offerings And Products to Be Introduced Throughout 2016

G3 EnterprisesMODESTO, Calif.  (January 25, 2016) – G3 Enterprises is committing resources to provide totally integrated packaging solutions from grape to glass.  Their focus will be on innovation, quality and technical services to continue to meet the needs of the wine, spirits and beer industries.  Throughout the year, the company will offer expanded services and introduce new products to its customers.

“We exist for our customers to succeed, which is why we’re constantly looking to offer new products and services that give our customers a competitive advantage,” said Tom Cook, President and CEO at G3 Enterprises. He added, “At the end of the day, it’s our people who make the difference, so we’ll be offering our customers opportunities for greater access to our experts – giving them the benefit of our commitment to overcome any challenge and take advantage of every opportunity to grow and succeed.”

G3 Enterprises leverages its wide breadth of expertise to help wineries by focusing on innovation, quality and technical knowledge and services.  G3’s competitive edge goes beyond its uniquely wide range of products and services and focuses on its experienced employees who have accumulated knowledge across diverse businesses.  The company has provided manufacturers with value-added services such as pre-bottling line check-ups and set-ups. Additionally, G3 offers services to evaluate machine conditions and settings, improving bottling line efficiencies for established wineries and new start-ups.  G3’s team specializes in oxygen management in packaging components including cork, caps, glass, boxes, single-serves and PET kegs. G3 also performs process modeling and optimization using advanced analytics, and provides consultation and testing for all its packaging.

To kick off 2016, G3 teamed up with Petainer, a global PET and other plastics packaging business, to drive US expansion. The two partners announced they have launched a new blow molding hub in Modesto, California, which has the flexibility to mold kegs for wine, beer, cider and other beverages. The new operation is up and running to address their customers’ need for a flexible manufacturing approach and reduced logistics costs so they can react quickly to market demands.

The G3/Petainer partnership also offers a wine-industry first turn-key mobile kegging line to meet the growing popularity of wine-on-tap. Instead of the current practice of shipping wine offsite to be bottled, the new mobile keg bottling line comes directly to the customer’s location where the wine will be filled on-site into Petainer’s 20-liter one-way PET kegs. The winery customer will be in control of their keg filling and storage. G3 Enterprises’ team of experts will perform all quality monitoring and control including inspecting for dissolved oxygen every hour, checking for appropriate cap application and fill levels and monitoring filter pressures.

G3 Mobile Bottling prides itself on packaging flexibility, capable of handling bag-in-box from 1.5L through 5L, bottles from 50ml through 1.75L, Petainer kegs and the Zipz single-serve PET package.  G3 will be further expanding that flexibility with Guala Closures Group to become the first mobile bottler in California capable of applying Guala’s WAK closure, a torque-on cap with a unique patented internal thread.  G3 will offer this new service beginning in April, 2016.

The addition makes G3’s bottling operation the most versatile offering of packaging (GLASS, BOX, PET, KEG, and SINGLE SERVES) and closures in the industry.  “Agility and customer focus are part of our core values. We will continue to develop partnerships and provide creative solutions to the industry we serve,” concluded Cook.

At the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium in Sacramento, January 27 – 28th, G3 Enterprises will showcase a variety of products and services including its GSEAL OTR Controlling Liner Technology, G INK Decorative Technology, petainerKeg™ and Alternative Packaging.  Additionally, G3 Enterprises will also have technical sessions at their booth #411 where customers can meet the experts.

MODESTO, Calif. (July 23, 2015) – To meet the growing demand of winemakers and winery owners around the world, Diam Bouchage has announced the opening of a new plant in the Pyrénées-Orientales, adjacent to the company’s main office in France.

The new plant has an integrated 300m² laboratory equipped with cutting-edge technology and geared towards innovation. Diam Bouchage built its success on a revolutionary closure solution that guarantees no cork TCA (releasable TCA < the measurable limit of 0.3 ng/l).  While France remains the main market, accounting for 30% of sales, Diam is significantly developing its international market with a presence in 42 countries around the world including in the Unites States. The company recently celebrated its 10 year anniversary.

Earlier this year, G3 Enterprises, the sole distributor of all Diam products in the United States Canada and Mexico, announced the completion of a series of upgrades to its cork room to boost its capacity to produce high-quality Diam closures. Improvements made to G3’s cork room included the addition of five new single head printers which have the ability to print over one million corks per day. Also, a new coater was added to improve application consistency and efficiency.  With the upgrades, G3 can now handle a batch range from 6,000 to 20,000 corks; improve coating application; ensure appropriate coating quantity; and reduce potential for mixed cork.  All the work is performed in a controlled processing room at 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

G3 Enterprises Makes New Advances in Total Packaging Solutions
27 March, 2015

G Ink bottle displayContinuing their commitment to innovation in wine packaging, G3 Enterprises introduced their newest solutions at the Unified Wine and Grape Symposium.

Among the products on display were G3’s new GTWIST 30×60 Cap Collection which is the latest addition to the existing GFRESH caps for lightly carbonated wines, G INK decorative ink effects, and new GSEAL oxygen transmission rate controlling caps. These exciting 30×60 cap offerings combine the powerful creative features of G INK with new patent-pending cap liner options.

“Our new products are backed by extensive research and testing by our very talented team of technical and creative people” said John Cunningham, Director of Innovation. “The rigorous process we employ ensures top-level product performance for our customers.”

The new GSEAL caps feature a wide range of oxygen transmission rates matching the ingress of many existing closure types. These options make it easier for a winemaker to transition into the GTWIST without affecting the oxygen mediated development of the wine. In addition, G3 offers onsite technical service support including complimentary start-up assistance for wineries transitioning to GTWIST Caps. With the new liner technologies, G3 addresses one of the most important technical aspects of quality packaging – product protection.

The other key aspect is presentation. Last year G3 introduced the bichromic and thermochromic capabilities of G INK. Where bichromic changes color depending on a consumer’s viewing angle, and thermochromic changes color depending on the package’s temperature. A number of wines utilizing these cutting-edge design capabilities are already in stores providing consumers with a different way to interact with the package

G3 foil embossThis year, G3 has added to the interactive capabilities of G INK with photochromic inks that react to ultraviolet light, such as the sun. For example, when a bottle is taken outdoors and exposed to sunlight, the cap and label decorated with this technology will change colors revealing a new image or message.

“We wanted to build on the element of discovery,” said Cunningham, “especially for the millennial generation, discovery is an important part of the wine experience that they can share with their friends.”

These G INK technologies work both on the cap and on the label allowing wineries an amazing array of design options. In addition to these unique inks, GTWIST Caps also offer new elegant premium top image emboss and foil, along with decorated side foil options that immediately catch the eye of consumers.

“Demonstrating our innovations and seeing people’s reactions at trade shows is rewarding as a product developer,” said Cunningham, “but we also welcome wineries contacting us directly if they want to learn more about our new packaging products and services.”

The GTWIST Cap Collection combines wine protection liner technology and impressive design to provide a convenient, creative closure solution for any wine program.  It offers GSEAL, the newest, patent-pending oxygen transmission rate controlling liners, to protect wine quality.  A wide-range of GTWIST cap design options also allows wineries to have greater brand impact in store, on premise or at home.  The GTWIST Cap offers new, elegant, premium top image emboss, decorated side foil or paint and new GINK technologies to allow more creativity. To make it easier for wineries transitioning to cap closures, G3 also offers onsite technical service support including complimentary initial qualification & start-up assistance.

“We have a very talented team of technical and creative people. Our new product development approach is very lean but also technically rigorous,” said John Cunningham, Director of Innovation.  He added, “Due to the rigor we employ, our new products are backed by extensive research and testing to ensure that they perform well for our customers.”

G3 Enterprises will display the revolutionary Zipz single-serve packaging (as seen recently on ABC TV’s Shark Tank) at its booth during the Unified Wine and Grape Symposium.  Zipz provides an elegant single serving of wine in a clean, fully-recyclable, grab-and-go wine glass shaped package. This helps both inventory control and eliminates wasted wine from bottle pours.  It features 100% recyclable PET Glass and comes with a lid that when removed, snaps on the bottom as a coaster and can be resealed to prevent spills. The lid is also perfect for branding with a logo, venue name or special event.  The packaging has a UV clean wrap to to extend shelf life by protecting the wine from damaging light and is also available for custom branding. G3 Enterprises is working as the exclusive co-packer for Zipz and is constructing a new bottling line at its Modesto facility to ensure the highest product quality and increase bottling capacity while working to further improve the cup design and seal.

“G3 Enterprises is offering some of the most exciting products for today’s beverage industry and I encourage those interested in these and other G3 products and services to schedule an appointment for a demonstration at the G3 booth (#443) at the Unified Wine and Grape Symposium,” said Cook.


G3 Enterprises Expands Cork Room to Meet Growing Demand for Diam Closures
15 January, 2015

G3 Cork Room2 - m

Facility’s Increased Capacity has Potential to Produce One Million Corks per Day

MODESTO, Calif.  (January 15, 2015) – To meet growing demand from the nation’s winemakers and winery owners, G3 Enterprises has just completed a series of upgrades to its cork room to boost its capacity to produce high-quality Diam closures.

“G3 Enterprises is a great partner of ours as they continue to anticipate market demand for our full range of Diam closures for wines and Mytik for sparkling,” said Francois Margot, Diam Bouchage Sales Manager for North America and China.  He added, “North America has always been an important region for our company and we are very proud of the number of outstanding wine brands that are using our closures thanks in large part to G3 and efforts such as this recently completed expansion project.”

Among the improvements made to G3’s cork room include the addition of five new single head printers which have the ability to print over one million corks per day. Also, a new coater has been added to improve application consistency and efficiency. With this new investment, G3 can handle a batch range from 6,000 to 20,000 corks; improve coating application; ensure appropriate coating quantity; and reduce potential for mixed cork.  All the work is performed in a processing room at a controlled 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

“The recently completed expansion will enable G3 to continue to provide the highest quality Diam closures through improved productivity and the industry’s best quality control,” said John Kalal, G3 Enterprises, Vice President and General Manager for Manufacturing.  He added, “Now we can meet any order, even as few as 6,000 corks for a custom design or a bag of 1,000 corks for stock products, which gives all wineries the flexibility and speed needed to get their products to market.”

G3 Enterprises provides integrated packaging products and logistics services for the beverage industry and it is the sole distributor of all Diam products in the United States Canada and Mexico. The company works closely with Diam Bouchage to ensure a consistent supply of superior closure products.   The company prints and finishes Diam closures at its state-of-the-art facility in Modesto and manages sales and customer service from qualification to order, sales and marketing and on-site technical services. G3’s Closures Division is an ISO 9001, 14001 and FSSC22000 sustainably certified facility.

Diam Bouchage is a leader in manufacturing technological corks including Diam for still wines, Mytik for sparkling wines and Altop for spirits with options in wine aging potential, permeability, dimensions and branding.  Its production facilities are ISO 22000 and FSC certified.  For the past ten years, the company has invested in a patented process called DIAMANT® process which exploits the properties of CO2 to extract the volatile compounds of cork and eliminate the risk of “cork taint.”  Each year, the company sells more than one billion closures around the world. G3 and Diam will exhibit Diam and Mytik closures at the Diam booth #410 at the Unified Wines and Grape Symposium in Sacramento, California on January 28-29, 2015.

G3 partners with several local brokers and distributors for Diam products in the following regions throughout North America:

G3 Enterprises Receives WINnovation Award
05 December, 2014

John Cunningham accepts WINnovation Award from George Christie.

John Cunningham accepts WINnovation Award from George Christie.

Tuesday night, at the second annual Wine Industry Awards reception G3 Enterprises received the WINnovation Award for excellence in innovation, honoring their ingenuity and technical achievement in developing the G-Ink, which unleashes a new realm of creative possibilities for packaging designers to make impactful designs.

George Christie, President of the Wine Industry Network, presented John Cunningham, Director of Innovation at G3 Enterprises, with the award.

“In today’s competitive wine market, a quality product is not enough for success,” said Christie, “you need to stand out, and G-Ink provides wineries a creative tool that adds value and shelf appeal to their packaging and brand. G3 has created the opportunity to carve out a marketing niche, now it’s up to the individual winery to seize that opportunity and write their own success story.”

The G-Ink features both Bichromic and Thermochromic capabilities, which means that it can change appearance depending on viewing angle or package temperature. This gives the bottles added dimension and engages the consumer.

“It’s been shown that if a consumer picks up a bottle off of the shelf, there’s a good chance they’ll buy it,” said Cunningham, “the wineries know best what works with their brands and their target consumers, and we are here to partner with them in providing unique creative techniques to make their products standout.”

Fred Dales, Sr. Director of Technical Services & John Cunningham, Director of Innovation

G-Ink was introduced at the 2014 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium, however, the thermochormic and bichromic demo bottles at the Unified show were only a preview of what the G-Ink technologies offer.

“We’re very happy to receive this recognition and we continue to create innovative solutions for our customers to gain market share,” continues Cunningham, “in fact, we will be introducing the latest G ink capabilities at the 2015 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium in January.”

Bichromic G-Ink


Wine Bottles as Monuments to the Moment
12 November, 2014

Edit IMG_6677We have a tradition for wine as gifts, both in the everyday and for very special occasions. Of course we want a wine that tastes good, but especially for the milestones in life, it is perhaps even more important that the bottle reflects the significance of the moment and can last over time, even after the wine is gone.

Brit Lesnett is the Production Manager at G3 Bottle Etching in Napa where they make the vessels that hold wine into lasting pieces of art. “My background is in traditional packaging,” says Lesnett, “and I love working with customers to create something unique.”

Bottle etching became part of the G3 Enterprises portfolio in 2003, and it compliments their full range of total packaging solutions for the wine industry. “We work with both full and empty bottles,” says Lesnett, “our jobs range from one bottle to several thousand.” Besides etching, the facility also does wax dipping, which creates a beautifully finished wax seal around the neck of the bottle.

G3 Bottle Etching produces unique etches for weddings, anniversaries, and holidays, but also reproduces existing label designs for special edition or large format bottles. “One of the big challenges in reproducing labels is to emulate the results of ink on paper with the process that we use,” says Lesnett, “We go through tedious art and color testing to ensure we have a perfect match, and want the approval of the customer before we start production.”

Not every print design can be replicated exactly, and sometimes accommodations have to be made for very fine print and detail, which cannot be done with etching and hand painting. “With etching we are limited to either a raised or lowered surface for detail, and some designs are more suitable for etching than others. Our goal is to be proud of the result and have our customers feel the same way,” explains Lesnett.

Seeing all the bottles on display from past projects at the production facility; it is striking how even the simplest designs take on an additional dimension with the depth of the etching. It compels you to reach out, get that tactile sensation of the cut glass, and confirm that it’s not just an optical illusion.

Etching brings richness to a bottle and provides a brand with a certain timeless quality. The bottle is transformed from a functional vessel to piece of art that can be used for display in a tasting room, auctioned for charity, or given as a treasured gift.

G3 Label Team Thrives for the Perfect Impression in Wine Labels
05 August, 2014

G3 Enterprises, the undisputed industry leader in wine packaging solutions, has leaped further to the forefront with a new press, a sustainable wine label, and an innovative cap and labeling system designed for lightly-carbonated wines attractive to millennial consumers.

“We’ve doubled the size of our business in the last four years,” confirms Brendan Kinzie, Senior Director of Operations for G3’s Wine Label Division. “Our strategic focus is to serve the wine and spirits industries; we have grown tremendously in these industries because our talented people and our processes are aligned with our strategy. At G3, we innovate with the end consumer of our target markets in mind.”

That innovation includes the recent acquisition of a brand new Flexo Press, manufactured by Nilpeter in Denmark, with the flexibility and print quality rivaling or exceeding that of offset printing. G3 press operators and engineers worked hand-in-hand with Nilpeter in custom building this new press, and are excited about its capabilities.

G3 Enterprises Press

“The benefits of flat tooling with this new press are amazing,” exclaims James Stone, G3’s New Business Development Manager. “It gives more creative license to the designers, allowing for a broader range in stamping and embossing, especially for more challenging designs that require special equipment for detailing.”

The Modesto-based G3 Enterprises has been providing superior packaging and supply chain services to the wine, spirits, craft beer and specialty food industries for more than five decades. Its successful wine label division is comprised of technical experts who are there for customers from the design phase through execution.

“Our team will look at a design from a potential customer not only for feasibility, but for cost-savings as well,” explains Brendan Kinzie. “Once that label is printed, we’ll be there on the bottling line for set up too. We’re there for the entire process. We want our clients to know they have a real partner in this business.”

G3 engineers are the co-creators of GTree, an environmentally sustainable wine label that has revolutionized the wine industry with unparalleled wet appearance performance in ice bucket test results.

G3 recently received a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification for their GTree PCW label. According to Fred Dale, Director of G3 Technical Services, wineries that use the FSC logo on their labels can now demonstrate to their end-use customer that the material is sustainably produced.

“There’s a significant segment of wine consumers that’s very environmentally conscious,” Dale points out. “As a result, a number of brands focus their efforts on being ‘green.’ The GTree product directly addresses that market niche, while also providing for superior cold box performance.”

G3 has also just introduced GFRESH, a cap and label-packaging solution for lightly carbonated or “frizzante” wines. Its pressure-sensitive design allows for the commercial application of labels to cold, wet surfaces without the complications of cold-glue technology during bottling.

G3’s Labeling Division is gearing up for further expansion and continuing technological advances in the coming decade. According to Stone, the company’s unprecedented success is rooted in expertise, market focus and superior customer service.

“We’re passionate about what we do,” Stone asserts. “We’re primarily focused on one thing – the wine industry. Our engineering and support groups are specific to this industry. I think that’s what makes us stand apart from our competition. These guys absolutely love what they do.”

G3 Enterprises’ Newest Innovation, “G Ink™ Cap” Wins Two International Awards for Cutting-Edge Capabilities
16 July, 2014

MODESTO, Calif.  (July 15, 2014) – Responding to research indicating a consumer is more likely to purchase a bottle once they pick it up from a shelf, G3 Enterprises is now offering G Ink™ which is revolutionizing the consumer shopping experience and capturing international awards. 

The G Ink™ offers both Bichromic and Thermochronic ink options. The Thermochronic option allows a label or cap to change appearance at designated temperatures.  The Bichromic option provides a color shifting effect when the package is viewed at different angles. Recently, International Metal Decorators Association has recognized G Ink™ Bichromic Cap with two international awards – Best of Category Closures and Technical Achievement – at its 2014 International Metal Decorators Association Annual Conference.

“We are constantly working to develop ways for our customer’s wine to stand out from the competition whether on the shelf or in the store’s cold box,” says John Cunningham, Director of Innovation and Process Improvement.  He added, “G Ink™ gives added dimension to a bottle allowing it to make a statement among the sea of choices on the shelves.  It is opening a new world of options for creative label and cap designs that will not only catch the eye of the consumer but engage them with useful information such as when the wine in the bottle has reached the ideal drinking temperature.”

 

G3 Enterprises is working closely with designers and wineries to develop unique, integrated bottle designs to take full advantage of the G Ink technology.  For more information or request for samples, visit www.g3enterprises.com or email G3.info@G3Enterprises.com.

G3 Enterprises Acquires New Nilpeter Flexo Press
02 June, 2014

Providing Customers with Superior Print Quality and Decorative Options 

MODESTO, Calif. (June 2, 2014) – G3 Enterprises has recently installed a new Nilpeter Flexo Press providing customers with the latest technology to meet the ever-changing demands of wine label designs.

The press was manufactured in Denmark by Nilpeter, the world’s leading manufacturer of printing presses for the wine industry.  Working with Nilpeter, G3 Enterprises was able to tailor the new press to meet its specific needs with the flexibility and print quality rivaling or exceeding that of offset printing.  G3 Engineers worked side-by-side with Nilpeter engineers to custom-build the new press to provide state-of-the-art printing solutions.

“The benefits this press provides us are tremendous,” said James Stone, G3’s New Business Development Manager.  He added, “Flat tooling gives wine label designers more creative license while allowing for a broader range in stamping and embossing to meet the more challenging label designs which, in the past, required special equipment for detailing.”

The advantages of the new press include auto side-to-side registration, increased pressure sensitive capacity and expanded print capabilities including flat foil and emboss tooling.  The new Flexo Press also provides better printing, better color control and eliminates any concerns about ink and water balance for high-quality wine labels.

 

Said Stone, “This new press is a game changer for our company and our customers as it provides an innovative, competitive edge to meet the industry’s growing label demands.”


G3 Innovation – Solutions for the Wine Industry

It begins with a need; a challenge faced by the wine industry. How do we improve our wine’s shelf life, how do we make our product stand out on the shelf, how do we become more sustainable?

The strategy at G3 is to provide innovative cost-effective solutions ensuring the customer’s product success and improving their sales. G3 continues looking for creative solutions that perform as well or better than the industry standard. One such solution is GTREE® Paper; a 100% post-consumer waste label stock that performs well in the printing process and on bottling lines. To increase the consumer’s satisfaction even further, GTREE labels are proven to not grey and wrinkle in an ice bucket.

G3 understands that different wines have different ageing needs in the bottle. Light fruity white wines typically age best when very little oxygen is allowed into the package while very heavy red wines might need relatively high oxygen exposures. Due to the increasing popularity of a new lightly carbonated wine category, G3 has developed patent-pending cap liner technologies that control or minimize the oxygen transmission rate while retaining the wine’s carbon dioxide. Just recently introduced are G3’s GFresh® screw cap liners that hold carbonation while providing an oxygen transmission rate comparable to a SaranexTM cut-disk liner. In addition, to meet the cold, wet application required for bottling carbonated wines, GFresh PS labels are designed to work efficiently on surfaces with condensation.

gfresh-caps

G Ink™ is the latest innovation from G3 and is designed to revolutionize shelf impact. The G Ink features both Bichromic and Thermochromic capabilities, which means that it can change appearance depending on viewing angle or package temperature. This gives the bottle’s added dimension and engages the consumer.

“It’s been shown that if a consumer picks up a bottle off of the shelf, there’s a good chance they’ll buy it,” says John Cunningham, Director of Innovation and Process Improvement, “so, of course, we’re looking for ways to make our customer’s wine stand out in the store and at the cold box, increasing the likelihood it will be purchased.”

G Ink, just introduced at Unified Wine & Grape Symposium this year, opens a world of options for creative label and cap designs that catch the eye, engages the consumer, and even provides useful information such as when the bottle reaches ideal drinking temperatures. Since G3 produces both labels and caps, the G Ink creative options extend to the capsule printing too.

Cunningham continues, “The thermochormic and bichromic demo bottles at the Unified show are only a preview to the G Ink technologies. We welcome an opportunity to work closely with designers and wineries to develop unique and fully integrated bottle designs. The wineries know best what work with their brands. We are here to partner with them in providing unique creative techniques and making their products standout.”

G3 ENTERPRISES OBTAINS FOOD SAFETY CERTIFICATION FOR SCREW CAPS, CORKS, CAPSULES, POUR SPOUTS AND STOPPERS
30 May, 2013

New FSS22000 Standard for Closures Is Latest Achievement for Company

Anticipating a growing demand from its customers to provide food safety certification to meet the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act, G3 Enterprises Closure Division announced today that it has achieved Food Safety System Certification 22000 by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance.

Since the passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act in 2011, considered the most sweeping reform of the country’s food safety laws, the food and beverage industries have begun requiring suppliers to provide food safety certification to ensure the safety of their products.  This has caused many suppliers to scramble in an effort to identify certification programs and begin the rigorous qualification process that G3 Enterprises has already completed.  

“Given our high standards for quality, we sought to have our risk management and quality assurance techniques reviewed, monitored and certified so our customers know that we have effective food safety management systems in place and operating,” said Tom Cook, Chief Operating Officer of G3 Enterprises.  He added, “We’re committed to providing our customers with the highest quality beverage packaging products and services.”

G3 Enterprises' closure division is the most integrated provider of closure products in the wine and spirits industries providing caps, corks, capsules, stoppers, crowns, and bar tops. As an ISO 9001 and 14001 certified manufacturer, G3 invests in the latest equipment and technology to meet evolving customer needs. For 50 years, the company has provided quality products and solutions to beverage customers in the United States, Canada, and Mexico and throughout Europe.

This recommendation is the latest achievement for the Mobile Bottling Division which has increased its bottling capacity, capability and flexibility to enable its customers to respond even faster to an ever-changing market.  G3 Enterprises Mobile Bottling Division was first to offer a mobile bag in box line and first to offer an alternative packaging line capable of filling PET and flat panel bottles. 

“Our Mobile Bottling Division is led by our experienced production team to offer our customers both the highest quality and the most technologically advanced bottling lines. This makes

it a popular option for wineries and spirits companies who need more production capability or want the flexibility to sample new packaging ideas to meet the growing demand among consumers, without having to make a hefty capital investment in new buildings and bottling lines.” said Beth Nagle, Sr. Director and General Manager of the G3 Mobile Bottling Division.

International Metal Decorators Recognizes G3 Enterprises

Screw Cap Closures Earn Award for Excellence in Quality

 

Modesto, California. August 25, 2011 –G3 Enterprises has earned an Award of Excellence from the International Metal Decorators for the distinctive screw cap closures it created for Charles Creek Vineyard.

 

“This award is great recognition of the quality of our Royal 90 screw caps and the expertise of our team,” said Robert Lubeck, CEO and President of G3 Enterprises.  He added, “This project epitomizes the level of service and resources available to every one of our customers each and every day. The entire G3 team takes great pride in the quality and performance of our caps.”

 

Utilizing the latest technology and leveraging decades of industry experience, the G3 team has mastered the ability to print high quality caps. The process of stretching the aluminum into a “shell” and printing on round caps is a very delicate and challenging process that is rewarded with a finished product that is both eye-catching and memorable.  

 

Charles Creek Vineyard, which just won a Double Gold Medal, score of 98, the highest award presented at the prestigious 2011 California State Fair, now only offers wine with G3’s screw caps citing both the quality of the wine and the outstanding packaging.

 

“I love the look of our bottles as they resemble jewelry and seem to dance on the shelf.  Our CCV initials on the cap are very important to us in the overall design of the wines of Charles Creek Vineyard and the G3 caps give the bottle a touch of distinction with great use of color and the perfect amount of subtlety,” said Bill Brinton, owner of Charles Creek Vineyard.  He added, “In our decision to switch to screw caps, we looked at many factors. G3 has excellent packaging expertise, providing us with a professional consultant at every step so that we could attain our goal.”

G3 ENTERPRISES ANNOUNCES EXPANDED CLOSURE OPTIONS
29 March, 2011

Closure Division adds ROYAL 90® Performa to screw cap production capabilities

G3 Enterprises has announced the latest printing technology and new design capabilities added to its long-skirt aluminum screw cap product portfolio.

The ROYAL 90® Performa distortion printing process transforms artwork from a flat aluminum sheet, to the G3 ROYAL 90® screw cap.

G3 Closure Division offers a variety of design options for its ROYAL 90® product line:

-           ROYAL 90® Standard

                        - Single color

                        - Top printed

- Top and side printed

-                ROYAL 90® Performa

                        - Top and side printed

-           ROYAL 90® Performa Plus

                        - Torque-on (special bottling equipment required)

Under the ROYAL 90® Performa design option, distortion printing enables G3 to offer customers a lower cost alternative to traditional top and side printed caps.

“At G3 Enterprises, we constantly strive to offer our customers cost-effective alternatives. Closures have been an integral product offering for over 50 years,” said Robert Lubeck, CEO and President, G3 Enterprises. “The addition of the ROYAL 90® Performa option is an example of our constant pursuit of creative solutions to meet the customer’s needs. This option gives brands a competitive closure choice with greater design flexibility.”

Distortion printing starts with a flat sheet of aluminum upon which the top and side printed images are applied. This technique utilizes high-quality computer assisted lithography.  As the flat metal sheet is formed into the dimensions of the final cap, the desired side image is created. This single-step printing process allows for more flexibility in package design, saves considerable printing time and is generally more cost-effective than traditional methods.

G3 Enterprises introduced its ROYAL 90® aluminum screw cap in response to increasing customer demand for a reliable alternative to cork closures. G3 produces these caps at their plant located in Modesto, California. In addition to adding distortion printing capabilities under the Performa design option, G3 will increase ROYAL 90® production capacity in early 2011 with the addition of new state-of-the-art printing equipment.

A smooth finish (no-knurl) option providing a refined look and additional space for decoration is also available for ROYAL 90® Standard and Performa. Applied with standard ROPP bottling equipment, no expensive line change parts are required. The G3 smooth finish cap is easy to use and cost effective.

G3 Enterprises has consistently delivered quality, as the most integrated packaging service provider to the beverage industry. The company serves a diverse clientele with a full range of product portfolios from traditional to alternative closures. With decades of proven experience, G3 has delivered results and built partnerships with customers and suppliers worldwide. The company offers a full portfolio of supply chain services including Labels, Closures, Transportation, Warehousing, Mobile Bottling, and Winery Services.
