My creation process
Leslie Dabin, previously a final year student of Interior Design-Architectureat the Ecole Pivaut and winner of the Verallia Design Awards 2016 in the wine category, has seen her bottle “Serac” chosen by the wine distributor Maison Du Sud – JeanJean for the marketing of its wines IGP Saint Guilhem the Desert and IGP Pays d’Oc. The bottle “Serac” is today sold in supermarkets.
“The competition was a very rewarding experience, with a concrete project to realize and manufacturing constraints. I was able to discover the glass material and enrich my knowledge of how to work on it. Seeing my project winning the jury vote gave me a lot of hope for the future. As for the announcement of its marketing, I still do not believe it! “
By partnering with Verallia for the launch of this new "SERAC" bottle, we have chosen to support young designers through the Verallia Design Awards Contest. It is also a way for us to meet the constant demand of our customers in terms of innovations and original products. "This bottle represents a real differentiation and will certainly bring value to our products " says Olivier Goue, Marketing Manager MAISON DU SUD - JEANJEAN.

First prize of the competition in 2010, the bottle of Mélitine Courvoisier “Soirée à rosé” – at the time student at the Ecole Boulle – has been marketed since 2013 by Gérard Bertand under the name Côte des Roses for AOP languedoc. The bottom of the bottle that is carved in the shape of a rose is now a success in France and in United States and is even adapted in magnum.
« The subject of “making the difference” with a glass bottle interested me and it was by visiting the production plant that I found inspiration. It was wonderful and very impressive to discover the industrial glassmaking process! Days of work rewarded with a first prize, I didn’t believe it ! I was then able to follow the reality of prototyping, it was great.»
