Glass-making expertise serving a world full of passion
Over the years, Arc International has developed real wine-making know-how. With extensive glass-making expertise and a desire to convey a certain French art de vivre, the group has invested in wine-making technology aimed at professionals.
For example, it initiated and carried out a project to produce a high-tech material, Kwarx®, designed exclusively for wine tasting. In 2006, the Open Up glass, with a revolutionary form, was the first to benefit from this new material. It received the Janus de l’Industrie, a prize awarded by the Institut Français du Design (French design institute), and met with resounding commercial success.
Chef & Sommelier: showcasing your talent
Arc International has created the Chef & Sommelier brand. All its product lines dedicated to tasting and bar and wine service are now grouped under this 100% expert brand.
These collections, featuring a wide range of innovative technologies and backed by the group's Research Centre, are submitted to a committee of professional experts for its approval. Each collection expresses Chef & Sommelier’s identity: innovation, expertise and sensory experience.
By taking a journey through the world's various regions, Chef & Sommelier invites you to discover or rediscover the wealth of sensations that wine has to offer.
