Freixenet Prosecco D.O.C.G. – masterpiece of Prosecco art
Freixenet Prosecco D.O.C.G. is love at first sip and was awarded with silver in the “Drinks Launch of the Year” category. This prosecco persuades with an Italian temperament and affectionate hints of citrus and green apple. It is made from blends of Glera, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio grapes from the exclusive and limited region of Conegliano Valdobbiadene. Its luxurious golden bottle with the attention-grabbing purple label makes for an ideal gift and perfectly embodies the quality of this fine Prosecco D.O.C.G.
Henkell Cuvée Unique Brut – double silver for this fine, creamy and unique Brut

Besides its high quality and taste, Henkell Cuvée Unique also convinces with its elegant bottle in créme with golden details. The iconic Henkell sleeve catches the eye and guarantees highest standards in taste. Henkell Cuvée Unique is available exclusively through Gebrüder Heinemann duty-free and travel-retail outlets.
