Grape to Glass

Grape to Glass


 

New Zealand’s wine industry is kiwi business at it’s best - creating sought after brands and wine products by adding value to natural and sustainable primary produce.

The supply chain connecting wine maker to wine consumer is a long one. Ensuring product quality from grape to glass is our number one priority, and CEL has invested at all stages of that supply chain to meet the demands of an essential and rapidly growing kiwi export industry.

The journey of wine

From field to steel

While many winemakers do their thing from their own vineyards, much of New Zealand’s wine production depends on moving grapes from the field (predominantly from Central Otago and Marlborough) to state-of-art wine making facilities based in Marlborough, New Zealand’s largest winemaking region.

CEL trucks move grapes from the field directly to the wine making facilities. Doing this involves a highly sophisticated tracking and provenance guarantee system, ensuring the integrity of the grape at all stages of its journey.

Transporting grape juice in bulk to alternative winemaking facilities often fits winemaker priorities. CEL bulk liquid transporters move liquid from Marlborough to other winemaking hubs.

The 2016 Marlborough earthquake highlighted a need to temporary bulk liquid storage to allow for the refitting of damaged tanks. CEL sourced over 200 containerised ISO units from Australia, which continue to provide ongoing volume storage flexibility for key customers.
