Nottage Hill wines are known for their consistency, approachable style and balance. They’ve become a favourite around the world. Now available in flat, eco friendly plastic bottles.
So why is flat so fantastic?
Being made from 100% recycled and recyclable PET plastic, these bottles are first of all, literally, a lighter alternative to the traditional glass bottle. It’s also a lot more energy-efficient across their entire life cycle, including production, movement and recycling, which in turn, reduces carbon emissions and logistics costs from the wine supply chain.
Did you know that recycled plastic requires 75% less production energy compared to glass or new plastic? Furthermore, the bottles are BPA-free and can hold your favourite wine safely for more than a year, without compromising taste or quality.
When we look at the flat shape, it’s simply genius. You can fit 10 flat wine bottles into the same box that would usually hold four glass bottles, making use of all that “air space” between the curves of traditional glass bottles. Not only does that mean you can transport more bottles per shipment, it also means there is no chance of breakage during transit.
These flat wine bottles are a staggering 87% lighter than traditional glass bottles and take up 40% less space compared to round glass bottles. It’s at this point that the penny dropped. If you read all these numbers and stats at a quick glance, you start to realise the full extent of the positive environmental impact of these new, oddly shaped plastic wine bottles.
And how does these flat bottles impact our daily life, you may ask? Well first of all, they pack incredibly easily for traveling, without having to wrap wine bottles in dish towels, hoping they won’t break. They are event and festival friendly, and means no more broken glass on our beaches, hiking trails or favourite picnic spots.
Plus, the wine is just seriously good!
