Selling no less than an average of 18 bottles per minute, Sandeman is one of the biggest producers in the Porto wine business, constantly thriving to improve its premium perception, with exclusive products that are a testament to its quality.

When they called Volta Studio to help them celebrate their anniversary, they asked not only for a premium perception in every material produced but also for us to develop a concept that truly explained the brand’s history and attitude. In close collaboration, we decided to create 6 stories, that together tell the story of The House of Sandeman’s 225-year-old success and commitment to quality.

The Sandeman 225th Anniversary Collection is, first and foremost, a collection of stories. Bottled stories. Six bottles of fine Sandeman Vintage Porto 2000 wine, numbered 1 to 6, where each label relates graphically to its own story, emphasizing the collectible appeal.

This collection celebrates the history, people, vision and stories of Sandeman. The six bottles evokes the unique spirit of George Sandeman, who founded The House of Sandeman in 1790. A limited edition of Sandeman 2000 Vintage Porto in perfect condition for a toast to the visionary insight of the Founder, a man who brought pleasure to so many across five continents over the last 225 years.
