Burgundy-based wine trader Paul Sapin is investing EUR6m (US$7.6m) in doubling its storage and bottling capacity after seeing sales rise by over 20% a year.

The company, which specialises in small volume units - 10, 18.7 et 25cl - recently opened a bottling line with an output of 16,000 units an hour.

It is also building an additional 4,000 sq meters of warehouse space, which when completed in September, will raise storage to up 22,000 hl of wine.

Paul Sapin has a turnover of EUR18m and employs 50 staff.
