Freixenet ICE is the new refreshing way to drink Freixenet. With its enigmatic bottle design and enticing serve over ice, the introduction of Freixenet ICE brings a new dimension to the sparkling wine category.

José was also the brainbox behind Freixenet’s ingenious marketing and advertising during this period; not only masterminding that iconic frosted black bottle, but also driving the brand to become one of the early adopters of TV advertising.
