History

The idea of bottling Prosecco was already created at the 2000 Millennium celebration in Ischgl. The way to first test the can was then only a matter of implementation. Today, thanks to Rich Prosecco sparkling wine in a can, the beverage market has become indispensable.

The millennium was a unique event on New Year's Eve in Ischgl. The village was a huge party destination, where those from all over the world were celebrating and dancing. There was only one problem: How to provide the celebrants in the whole area easily with drinks? At this time, hotelier Günther Aloys began to imagine the of bottling champagne in cans.

From the idea to the first can
In 2002, the first test cans were filled with champagne, Prosecco and Bellini were with specially produced labels. It took another two years until the idea could be implemented to fill this innovative product with high-quality Prosecco as a convenience. Of course, the new product from Aloys also had to be marketed professionally. The Prosecco in the tin had to be known beyond the borders of Austria.

Famous "overnight"
In order to raise awareness, Günther Aloys hired the lifestyle and fashion icon Paris Hilton in 2005. And this polarizing decision was just the thing, because today surveys show that RICH is still strongly connected to Paris Hilton’s image!
