Wine Show booth 2016 2

The Unified Wine & Grape show allows Technicote and its West Coast Sales Team to keep up on the latest technology, trends, and innovations. And, this year was no different. Wineries continue to prowl the isles for labels, converters, and designers to help set themselves apart.

At the 2016 show, barriers/weld labels continued to be a ‘buzz-word’ used by our customers, along with the search for new embossed uncoated papers and foil/hot stamp options. Technicote enjoys this opportunity to show the end users and wineries the capabilities of our facestocks and adhesives. Technicote’s IP400 Ice Bucket adhesive also brings attention to our booth and allows us to show our capabilities on the entire pressure sensitive construction.

If you have questions regarding the 2016 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium or would like to request a Product Guide, please contact your local Territory Sales Manager or email Marketing Product Manager Lauren Lange at
