Austrian Schlumberger Wein- und Sektkellerei launches Blanc de Blancs at Vinmonopolet

Another Austrian-Norwegian success story!


Schlumberger Wein- und Sektkellerei in Vienna/Austria, together with their partner Gavin AS, recently launched their sparkling wine, the “Schlumberger Blanc de Blancs”, at Vinmonopolet, the Norwegian wine monopoly, after having won an important tender. The product was launched in 197 Vinmonopolet stores which means a coverage of 58 % of the market at Vinmonopolet.

The tender process in Norway is very unique, and Vinmonopolet chose the product after blind tasting. For this tender offer, there were 12 different offers, and Schlumberger Blanc de Blancs was chosen because of quality, availability and price. These are the factors Vinmonopolet chose their product range from.

To win a tender after a blind tasting shows that the product has a high quality, and Schlumberger is very proud of launching this product.

Schlumberger actually developed a new product for fitting this tender, and both Schlumberger and Gavin AS are so satisfied with the fact that all the effort and work behind it made them win the tender and be able to launch.

This is a great start, and Schlumberger and Gavin AS hope that this success story will continue in the coming years!
