Grand Barossa is one of the most famous Barossa Shiraz wines worldwide. It debuted 25 years ago building an enviable track record that includes 20 gold medals over 12 consecutive vintages.

“We are excited to be the first Australian business to launch Cellr’s NFC customer engagement technology in the UK. We are able to provide customers with the opportunity to participate in our competition, but more than that, we are able to invite them directly into our world and our existing digital libraries”

– Michelle Geber, Château Tanunda Managing Director

The direct-to-consumer engagement experience is enabled by a golden Cellr NFC sticker applied to the Grand Barossa Shiraz bottles. The NFC, or Near Field Communication, stickers allow customers to interact with the bottles simply by tapping their smartphones on the golden label. Through this, Château Tanunda can connect customers with their Golden Bottle Giveaway, and engage with them digitally.

The Marketing team from Hydra Consulting have worked with Château Tanunda to create and execute the campaign using Cellr’s connected packaging.

– Dr Darren Oemcke, Marketing Director Hydra Consulting

Customers simply have to tap the golden NFC sticker with their smartphone to gain access to the Golden Bottle Wine Giveaway. In addition to this, customers will be able to access unique content such videos of the winemakers, tasting notes and other exclusive content.

Our technology was designed for this purpose, to connect producers with their customers and deliver a unique experience from anywhere in the world, without limitations.”
