In response to growing demand, Ardagh Group's Claret Regal and Burgundy Inspiration are now available for purchase with Stelvin closures.

"As the leading producer of wine bottles in North America, Ardagh Group continues to introduce innovative bottle offerings," said Bob Parise, Vice President of Wine Sales for Ardagh Group's North American Glass division.
