Glass bottles are an exceptional package for maintaining the taste of the wine, providing superior aroma and flavor. There’s a reason 80% of wine drinkers say wine tastes better from a glass bottle.* It’s always #betteringlass
Glass is made from 100% natural, sustainable raw materials – recycled glass, limestone, soda ash and silica sand. These ingredients are locked in, so they don’t affect or migrate into foods and beverages.
In fact, because glass is impermeable and highly inert, it’s the only food or beverage packaging that doesn’t require a plastic or chemical liner. That means there’s no interaction between the container and product inside. Just like the vintner intended.
Glass is non-porous and safeguards against moisture, oxygen, odor and contaminant invasion, protecting the wine inside and providing excellent shelf life.
Consumers prefer the intangible clink of glass, the premium way it looks on the shelf and its celebratory feel in hand. Glass is the consumers’ choice for both every-day experiences – and exceptional occasions.
Wine brands prefer glass containers for the design possibilities – from embossing and 360-degree labeling to creative decorations and premium signifiers. Glass wine bottles offer wineries unmatched shelf presence and brand identity.
Whether purchasing wine in a single-serving or sharing size container, 95% of wine drinkers say they prefer wine that is packaged in a glass bottle.
Glass is one of the only packaging materials that’s 100% recyclable and can be made into new containers over and over again with no loss of purity or quality. In fact, a glass bottle can go from recycling bin to a store shelf in as little as 30 days.
Millennial wine drinkers agree: 61% say glass wine bottles are most sustainable, while only 14% say this about box packaging, and 4% say this about pouches and cans. Learn more about recycling your glass bottles.
