At last a PET wine bottle which doesn't need to be refrigerated or filled within two weeks of production, according Australian wine producer Wolf Blass. It looks like glass, tastes like glass, but is much lighter and more eco-friendly at the same time.
"Wolf Blass Green Label, with its 51g PET wine bottle compared to an industry standard 515g glass bottle, appears to be the first Australian wine company to produce a wine with 29% less greenhouse gas emissions(GHG)," a press release from VIP Packaging said today.
Its new technology is an improvement on "previous formats of PET wine bottles, which generally required storage in a chilled environment prior to use and subsequent filling within two weeks of being actually produced. VIP Packaging's new wine bottles, using the latest DiamondClear scavenging technology, do not require this treatment; this in turn eliminates refrigerator usage and associated energy consumption."
