Vetropack produces commemorative Burgundy bottle

Post Time:Jan 07,2016Classify:Industry NewsView:477

Three centuries ago, a 15,000-strong army of volunteers defeated an Ottoman force during the Ottoman-Venetian War, and this victory has been celebrated every year since with an equestrian competition. To mark the 300th anniversary of this event, Vetropack Stra?a produced a Burgundy bottle with a special commemorative label.

Every August, in the Croatian town of Sinj near Split, a ring jousting tournament is held in honour of the victory over the Ottomans in the 18th-century Ottoman-Venetian War, during which the town was besieged. The contest and its accompanying festival are known as the “Sinjska alka” and are part of Croatia’s cultural tradition. The Sinjska alka was added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list in 2010.

To celebrate this year’s 300th anniversary, Vetropack’s Croatian plant produced a Burgundy bottle with a special Sinjska alka emblem. This olive-coloured glass bottle is from Vetropack Stra?a’s standard range and the engraved crest features a lancer on horseback with the inscription “Alka Knights Society Sinj 1715”. The black and white label depicting a horseman on his steed was designed by Nenad Dogan from Studio Dogan in Zagreb. The unpretentious glass bottles contain a fine red wine from Antun Plan?i?’s winery on the island of Hvar.
