The Goodness of Grapes

Posted on 07 March, 2018 by Alexander Thomson-Mclean | 1 comment

Over the last few weeks, I have been on a rather bizarre journey. There are a few parts of our business that I have intentionally swayed away from at times. But now, with many of the aspects of our business left in my ‘very able’ hands, it’s a somewhat intimidating prospect. Mostly having to give any new wines the full respect and scrutiny that they need and deserve, but also having to create some new, hopefully exciting and most importantly accurate blog posts.

Well let me draw your attention to a slight pickle I had last week. I was feeling maybe just slightly under the weather and I knew that the recycling had to go out. Now my recycling is quite full most of the time, mainly empty wine bottles. But here I was complaining to myself about the weight of these boxes and I started to think, why is this so heavy? Then I realised, wine bottles are bulky.

Let's discuss an idea to bottle wine in P.E.T! Is it a viable solution?
