Bottle Green's major brand focus has been on extending French Connection into the classic regions of France with
wines from Loire, Beaujolais and Burgundy, but it also found time to add new agencies from Roussillon, Burgundy, Italy and Alsace. Distribution of Andrew Peace FuturPak cartons increased significantly and the packaging format was extended to French Connection and the Italian brand Via Vecchio.
