Green wine for sustainable future
SO maybe you’re a sucker for design and you just can’t get over the aesthetic flaw of wine in plastic bottles, or perhaps you adhere to the school of thought that believes plastic tampers with a wine’s quality?
But did you ever consider the carbon emissions involved in carting around such heavy cargo as glass bottles full of wine?
The winemakers at Yealands have which is why they now offer a carbon-saving wine series known as Full Circle bottled in lightweight eco-friendly recycled plastic.
The range generates over 50 percent less greenhouse gas emissions and almost 20 percent less energy, which is complemented by Yealands’ other sustainable practices as a solar and wind powered winery.
The first wine launched in the series is a 2009 Sauvignon Blanc that has already garnered two awards thus putting to rest any reservations about its quality.
Full Circle actually implements a special technology that keeps oxygen out of the wine and so insures it stays fresh and pure.
And while it may not have the sleek appeal of a thick glass bottle, it is ecologically attractive, not to mention it makes for easy toting for your own personal wine escapades.
