Herti was founded in 1993 as a start-up company in Bulgaria with the main idea of producing aluminum screw caps for vodka and brandy to supply the distilleries in the country with high quality products and ensure them the best service.  The production started with one machine producing 2 sizes of screw caps for spirits and only 10 workers. Now Herti is a public company producing almost two billion screw caps in 40 sizes and sells its products in more than 50 countries worldwide.

The aluminum screw caps have a long history and a broad popularity. They are very easy to open and reseal and they are 100% recyclable.  

Herti manufactures aluminum screw caps with a diameter varying from 17 to 43 mm and height from 12 to 60 mm. They are used for sealing bottles with various capacities starting from 50 ml to a gallon (4.54 l). The variety of sizes, shapes and printing possibilities helps   manufacturers   to create attractive packaging for their many different brands. Customers may choose from different design options up to 5 colors offset printing, matt, semi-matt and glossy finish, hot- foil printing, embossing and top-relief.  

Aluminum closures represent the modern way of closing bottles and play a major part in preserving the quality of the wine, its branding and visual impact, but also wine’s environmental footprint. Aluminum closures offer a lot of creative possibilities for the design of a bottle. They are also suitable both for glass and pet bottles.  

“Vinstar” is the trade mark under which Herti sales its wine designed aluminum closures. Beside the most preferred size PP30x60 mm BVS, for standard wine bottles, the company manufactures other sizes such as 22x15, 22x30, 25x17, 25x43 and 30x24 mm, which are widely used for smaller and miniature bottles in the airplanes and mini- bars in 16 standard stock colors and numerous possibilities for decoration and design. It makes our screw caps the perfect choice for wine makers.    

The aluminum closures are more airtight and therefore less prone to flaws. This type of closure is a good solution for red wines for rapid consummation because it doesn’t affect the aromas of the wines. When we use the terms “rapid consummation for wine “that’s mean on average the wine will be drunk after 3-5 years. So the screw caps of aluminium are a good solution if we look for fresh, crisp and fruity red wines. 

In the word the screw caps seem rather suitable for fruity wines (white, rosé or red) with aromas sensitive to oxidation and for red fruity wines easy to drink.  

Advantages of the screwcaps for wines:

  • Guarantees consistency from one bottle to the next to preserve the aroma, taste and freshness of the wine 
  • Does not contain TCA (trichloroanisole) = cork taint 
  • Prevents unwanted oxidation 
  • Sensory neutrality 
  • Various decoration options 
  • Easy to use 
  • Screw caps replace cork & Shrinkable PVC or polylaminated capsules 
  • Custom design including top embossing, hot-foil printing & offset printing 
  • Easy to open and close, no need for a corkscrew 
  • Storage and transportation of wines in vertical and horizontal position 
  • They are recyclable 
  • Using lower SO2 levels in bottling 
  • Chlorine (PVC/PVDC) free liner avalable
