Each bottle is named after one of the miners and numbered in order of their rescue, buried beneath a layer of rocks, and comes in a tube representing the Fénix 2 rescue capsule. As recipients retrieve their wine, they reveal a replica of the message sent up to rescuers which exclaimed "Estamos bien en el refugio los 33", meaning "We are okay in the refuge, the 33 of us".Understand, though: By "one for each miner," we don't mean that Unreal is sending each miner his particular bottle. According to the press release, the Chilean Winers bottles "have been distributed to clients and industry figures as an alternative to the typical Christmas card or bottle of Champagne usually received during the festive period."
