WINnovation Awards Winner Update: Nomacorc
Last year, Nomacorc was awarded a WINnovation Award at the North Bay Business Journal’s annual Wine Industry Awards, for its recent innovative wine closure, Select® Bio. It is the world’s first zero carbon footprint closure, made with 100% renewable energy, minimal water consumption, and fully recyclable plant-based materials derived from sugar cane.
Since receiving this award at the end of 2014, Nomacorc continues to add to its rapidly expanding list of premium wineries who have chosen to make Select Bio a critical part of their winemaking process. Due to its exceptional quality performance and environmental benefits, Avalon Winery was the first United States winery to use Nomacorc Select Bio. In addition to Avalon, over 120 wineries, many smaller premium producers in and outside California, have adopted Select Bio since its release last year, including prominent brands such as J. Lohr, Schug Carneros Estate, cult favorite Dirty & Rowdy, Eberle and others. A few other iconic, ultra-premium producers, which we cannot yet name, have already committed their 2016 bottlings to Select Bio based on trials conducted this year.
Select Bio has also been nominated and won several awards in addition to winning last year’s WINnovation Awards.
- Drinks Business Best Green Launch of the Year – Winner
- IPA Awards Inspirational Packaging – Winner
- SIMEI-ENOVITIS New Technology Award – Winner
- WBM Bio Business Awards – Shortlisted
