About Us

WHAT WE DO

We’re innovating in wine packaging to make the wine industry more sustainable

We’re a sustainable packaging start-up that’s bringing about the most significant advancement to wine bottles in the last two centuries. With essential and highly effective advancements to the shape and material of wine bottles we’re improving the eco-friendliness, retailing, logistics, and cost-effectiveness of wine. This enables a healthier planet, happier consumers and a more prosperous industry.

"Something like 33 billion glass bottles will be used for wine around the world in 2018 – and the grotesque carbon footprint of almost all of them is unnecessary. This bottle could help."
— ANDREW JEFFORD, DECANTER

WHY WE DO IT

Our planet is facing an existential threat from climate crisis, fuelled by rising carbon emissions

The world of wine is more affected than most by rising global temperatures. To help safeguard this industry for future generations, we need to introduce innovative, low carbon solutions where they can make the most impact. In wine, packaging is a carbon footprint hotspot; round, glass bottles are the single largest contributor to wine’s carbon footprint.

We believe that for packaging to truly make a scalable, positive environmental impact, it can’t compromise on consumer appeal and commercial viability. That’s why our bottles look beautiful, offer ultimate convenience and slash business costs throughout the supply chain.  

"...it would make a massive difference to wine’s impact on the earth’s atmosphere if glass bottles were dispensed with for everyday, mass-market wine; the sort that constitutes by far the greatest volume of wine sold..."
— Jancis Robinson OBE MW, Financial Times
