Being a pioneer is not easy, so when Jean-Charles Boisset set out in 2007 to bridge the gap between eco-friendly packaging and the need for elegant and refined packaging, it took a serious amount of “R&D”.
The result is the Barrel-to-Barrel Concept; Pinot Noir is available from DeLoach Vineyards AND Cabernet Sauvignon is available from Raymond Vineyards. The national average on a 10L Eco Bag is $120/10L (a regular case of wine is 9.0L).
The Washington Post’s March 21st, 2011 article on Boisset’s innovation was entitled: “Boxed wines are so last decade. So one vintner is reaching back even further with barrel wines”. It’s true – a simple concept used for millennia, pouring wine from a barrel – and this time with a major twist to catch this concept up to the 21st century.
Convenience: East to use, easy to serve
Save money: no breakage, less waste in your trash
Make money: conversation piece which turns back-bar space into something that brings revenue.
Fresh Wine: no oxidation, fresh up to 6 weeks, no cork taint
Eco-Friendly: 99% less packaging than glass means 75% reduction in carbon footprint
Unlike kegs, which then have to be transported back to the winery to be filled (increasing the carbon footprint significantly), the “eco-bag” packaging is 100% recyclable, just load in the next eco-bag, takes about ten seconds.
Barrels and Eco-Bags are available in all states, including Texas. (excl. VA and PA) The benefits are numerous.For more information please contact:
