California Wineries Finding Significant Cost, Emission Savings with rPET Wine Bottles

Feb 22, 2024

Amcor is ramping up usage of an industry-standard, 750-ml version of a recycledPET bottle with technology that’s long been in use in smaller formats. Traditional glass packaging represents a number of problems when it comes to thetotality of wine’s environmental impact. First, glass requires a lot of heatand energy to produce. Next,there’s the fact that less than athird of all glass in the US is recycled. Lastly, glass is heavy — and more weightequals more shipping emissions. Beyond this trifecta, there’s been growing sentiment to explore long-termalternatives to glass packaging in wine’s traditional 750-ml format to findsomething lighter, more recyclable and ultimately less resource-intensive toproduce. The recent launch of a new recycled PET (rPET) bottle in thishigher-volume vessel proves to be a first step in that direction — providingalmost fully recyclable and shelf-stable bottles to the wine industry at afraction of the conventional weight. The bottles came about through a multi-year partnership between packaging giant Amcor ’s Rigid Packaging division and Californiawine producer Ron Rubin , who sells wineunder his namesake label and River Road FamilyVineyards and Winery . While Rubin is the mostprominent producer using the rPET bottles, selling his wine under the BlueBin moniker, Amcor says a “small” number of otherwineries are also piloting them. Rubin is advertising the bottles as “the firstwine bottle that’s 100% recycled and 100% recyclable;” and while that’stechnically true, Amcor senior marketing manager JonathanJarman explained to SustainableBrands® (SB) that the bottle closure is not, and the bottle is onlyrecyclable in areas that support plastic recycling. Decoding effective methods of driving consumer behavior change Join us for a transformational experience at SB Brand-Led Culture Change — May 8-10 in Minneapolis. This event brings together hundreds of brand leaders eager to delve into radical lifestyle shifts and sustainable consumer behavior change at scale. The trends driving cultural acceleration are already underway, and you can be at the forefront of this transformative movement. What’s more, while the concept of these larger bottles is new, the technologyisn’t. The bottles consist of 100 percent rPET with a thin layer of a materialcalled Plasmax — a silicon oxide coating that prevents oxygen permeationfrom reaching the wine, as oxygen exposure can lead to spoilage — which Amcorhas used in wine bottles for nearly 20 years. The rPET bottle is mostrecognizable in its 187-ml (half-bottle) sizing, often used in travel andaviation settings. According to Amcor, the bottles keep wine fresh for up to 18months. Made closer to home Lost under the headlines of the material recyclability is that the bottle ismade in Fairfield, California — less than an hour from Napa Valley winecountry and from Blue Bin’s Sebastopol headquarters, and just about fourhours from the state’s central coast wine region. Considering upwards of 70percent of US glass bottling is imported fromChina ,pivoting to domestically produced rPET or PET would save immensely on shippingand environmental costs, and contribute to a more stable and resilient supplychain .Amcor says it produces nearly 300 million wine bottles per year, including the187-ml PET bottles for big names such as Sutter Home and Barefoot. Bringing bottle production closer to some of the industry’s largest producerscould lead to a big shift — but it’s going to take a shift in awareness fromconsumers first. To be clear, the real potential of these PET and rPET bottleslies within the lower third of the wine market. Amcor and Rubin are bothpositioning the vessel for hotels, pools, hospitality and outdoor-adjacentspaces where a light, shatterproof bottle with a medium-level, yet premiumbeverage matches up to the desired experience of the consumer. It’s a safe betthat a $300 bottle of Bordeaux is probably not going to be bottled in anythingother than glass; but for the everyday wine drinker, the idea of a PET bottleisn’t so far-fetched. Jarman says that the potential of PET and rPET comes down to the swiftness inwhich the average consumer finishes a bottle of wine. Amcor research finds thatas much as 95 percent of a bottle of wine is consumed within the first 48 hoursafter purchasing, meaning that the vessel it's sold in is almost secondary tothe experience. Adapting to the change But a broad shift to rPET wouldn’t only require a complete rethinking of thebottling process — it would take new technology, as well. “We built a mobile bottling unit to bottle Blue Bin; and as the volume grows, wewill grow with that,” Rubin tells SB. Jarman adds that while the bottles are available to anyone, it’s going to take afew early adopters to prove the case before larger producers follow suit. “There has to be some proof demonstrating that it’s worthwhile to make thechange,” he says. While he didn’t get into the details, Jarman noted that wine producers can savemoney in the long run by converting to rPET and PET bottling, just on shippingand storage costs alone with the lighter overall weight. He says Amcor also dida study with bartenders and found that they may also prefer the lighter bottles— the average, 750-ml PET wine bottle weighs 85 percent less than the same-sizedglass bottle, for a total saving of eight pounds per case. It’s a similarbenefit to what Champagne Telmont is experiencing with its “ world’slightest Champagnebottle ,”launched last year — a lightweighted glass bottle yielding significant shippingand carbon savings, despite only being 35 grams lighter than the commercialstandard. Early adoption of rPET bottles made sense for a producer like Rubin — whoseoperation is one of only 33 certified BCorp wineries in the world and one of five in California. While Rubin does not useorganic grapes and “has no interest” in biodynamic practices, his winery doesmeet other sustainability criteria — earning the Certified Sustainable sealfrom the California Sustainable WinegrowingAlliance . “If you look at the total cost of ownership, (wine producers) are saving moneyby converting to PET in the long run,” Jarman says. “We’re so much lighter thanthe glass — it’s just that much cheaper to ship, and lends itself to e-commercein an exciting way.” Four 2022 vintage varietals of Blue Bin wine in the rPET bottles are now available for $15each in three states: California, Texas and Florida.
