Lightly Does It: Reducing Bottle Weights and Alternatives to Glass


A Costières de Nîmes weighing in at under 420g, which is the average figure that a group of international retailers, including Sweden's Systembolaget monopoly, has pledged to reach by 2026 for wines it sells in 75cl glass bottles


I was prompted to write this by questions from my family. One of them quizzed me about what I was going to do with all the information, as I weighed yet another empty wine bottle and typed the result into my laptop. The other – a regular wine drinker, mid-40s, high-powered job – choosing wines for Christmas from my Festive Wine Guides, asked: “What is all this about bottle weights on your website?”


Assuming everyone knew, I had never bothered to say. One day I just started putting weights at the end of tasting notes. Now, at last, I’m going to explain and then list all the weights I’ve recorded. It’s quite possible that the list is of no interest to anyone, but it’s also possible that someone somewhere will want to know the weight of a particular bottle or to compare a few. They're in ascending order of weight – from hero bottles to horrors.


The list only represents a tiny percentage of the wines I taste. I rarely know the bottle weights when I’ve tasted at an event, although The Wine Society and Waitrose are, commendably, now giving weights in their press tasting lists. Samples, especially for Zoom tastings, are quite often mini-bottles. Sometimes I give bottles to friends/family/neighbours to finish (rather than waste perfectly good wine). Too often I have simply forgotten to do the weighing.

Glass furnaces run all day and all night 365 days a year at 1,500ºC

So why do I weigh bottles? Because the single largest contributor to wine’s carbon footprint is the glass bottles, above all by their manufacture (glass furnaces run 24 hours a day 365 days a year at around 1,500ºC) and their transport (often empty), but things such as recycling and disposal also contribute.


Estimates put the figure at between 30% and 68% of wine’s total carbon footprint. And the US imports most of its bottles (empty) from China because so many of its manufacturers have gone out of business.


If the situation is to change, we need to draw attention to it. Publishing bottle weights is one small way of adding to the noise – and the more people who do it the bigger the noise will be.


I say ‘we’ but the person who has done most to draw attention to, and focus minds on, the problem is Jancis Robinson. The facts in this blog mostly come from a Circle of Wine Writer’s zoom hosted by Jancis earlier this month, supplemented by articles on jancisrobinson.com

Some elephantine still-wine bottles weigh nearly a kilo empty

Before we look at possible solutions (lighter bottles, alternative materials, recycled glass, refillable bottles, lower-carbon furnaces), it’s important to note a significant and encouraging recent development.


Last October a group of nine international wine retailers committed to reducing their average 75cl bottle weight to below 420g by 2026. That’s from a current average of around 550g, with some monstrous still-wine bottles weighing in at nearly a kilo (see the list below).


Sparkling wines have to be stronger and heavier to withstand the pressure within, but even here there’s been progress. The French manufacturer Verallia, which reduced Champagne bottles from 900g to 835g a decade ago, has now shaved off another 35g. De Telmont will release its first Champagne (its organic Réserve de la Terre) in the 800g bottle in 2026 and then switch other cuvées over progressively.   

If they are well designed, lighter bottles are not more breakable

Going back to the October agreement: it’s for an average reduction, which does mean that the retailers could still have some of their wines in heavyweight bottles, but, even so, it’s a key step forward.


Those signed up are Whole Foods Market, Naked Wines USA, Naked Wines UK, Laithwaites, Lidl GB, The Wine Society, Virgin Wines, Waitrose and the Swedish monopoly Systembolaget.


If you’re wondering why any producers and retailers would choose to put their wines in bottles that are more expensive to buy and to transport in the first place, it’s because they believe consumers link bottle-weight with wine quality. But research has shown that consumer decisions are driven more by price, personal recommendation and familiarity with a name.


In that case, why wouldn’t producers who wish to continue to use glass bottles switch to lighter ones, especially as they should also be cheaper?


There are a few reasons. One is that they think lighter bottles are more breakable, but they aren’t, provided they’re designed with a careful eye on stress points and creating a low centre of gravity. One UK bottler has been using 330g bottles for a decade, including on lines filling up to 400 a minute, and there hasn’t been a notable rise in breakages.


Producers can make significant savings by switching to lightweight bottles


Another reason is that changing bottle(s) can involve costs, because bottling lines usually need to be adapted. But that should be a one-off cost.


If the driver for change for wine producers is reducing their carbon footprint (big names include Jackson Family Estates and Bonterra in California, Craggy Range in New Zealand and Cramele Recas in Romania), there are also significant cost benefits. Jason Hass of Tablas Creek, Napa Valley, has saved $2.2m in 14 years. Craggy Range has also made significant savings.


Another simple reason for producers not switching to lighter glass bottles is lack of availability. Everyone needs to put pressure on the manufacturers to produce more of them. This may mean wine producers and organisations getting round the table to agree on a bottle weight and design to make it worth the manufacturers making the investment, although Philip Cox was able to do it single handedly, as co-owner of Romania's largest exporting winery. His 349g bottle is the lightest in the list below.


What about recycling?


The goal is for more recycled glass to be used in bottle manufacture, but it’s dependent on recycling rates and the process itself, especially the sorting by colour, is slow and expensive. In the US, the recycling rate is low, it's a bit better in England, better again in most western European countries, and high in Scandinavia.


Does wine need to be in glass bottles at all?


The vast majority of wine doesn’t need to be in glass because it isn’t intended to be aged and is drunk within days, if not hours, of being bought.


What, then, are the alternatives to glass?


Cans

Advantages: inert, lightweight, portable, the potential for eye-catching creative design (following in the footsteps of beer), affordable (because with few exceptions they’re small), requiring no special equipment to open them and, not least, pretty well infinitely recyclable.

Disadvantages: in a word, bauxite. It has to be mined and mining isn’t good for the environment. And turning the bauxite into aluminium uses a lot of energy.


Bag in box

Advantages: sustainable, convenient (they can be transported flat-packed before filling) and recyclable with a carbon footprint up to 10 times lower than glass bottles. The plastic taps have been an issue for recycling but the UK’s BIB Wine, for example, offers a freepost scheme for the return of the bags and taps. A technique that uses pyrolysis breaks them down into feedstock products used to make new products.


‘Paper’ bottles (with screw cap)

The Frugal Bottle, made by UK sustainable packaging company Frugalpac, is made up of a 94% paperboard outer, a plastic (polylaminate) liner and plastic neck, has a screw cap and weighs just 83g.

Advantages: a carbon footprint up to 84% lower than for a 75cl glass bottle and more than a third lower than for a 64g bottle made from 100% recycled plastic; it uses only 15g of plastic, 77% less than that of a 64g recycled plastic bottle; and is recyclable.


Flat recycled PET bottles (with screw cap)

The PET used is made from POP (Prevented Ocean Plastic collected from coastal areas at risk of pollution) and the bottle is 40% spatially smaller than a glass bottle. Advantages: lightweight (63g) and space-saving (the most widely used pallet takes 1,000 of these compared to 672 standard 75cl glass bottles – even fewer if they’re wide-shouldered heavyweights); infinitely recyclable with a much lower carbon footprint than recycling glass; unbreakable.

Disadvantages: potentially, appearance. Banrock Station’s sales have not suffered from the introduction of flat PET bottles, but LVMH’s Château Galoupet Nomade Côtes de Provence 2021 was dropped after one vintage because of consumer resistance to the packaging.


Recycled glass

LVMH's Château Galoupet Cru Classé Provence Rosé was launched in 2022 in a 499g amber glass bottle (lightweight compared to the Provence average) made from 70–80% recycled glass. It has a wax top made from 85% natural vegetable wax.

Advantages: releases less CO2 than manufacturing new bottles, doesn’t use sand, which is in short supply globally, and as a bonus the coloured glass protects the wine from lightstrike.

Disadvantages: recycling glass is slow and expensive, especially sorting it by colour; impurities in recycled glass can weaken the bottles; countries’ recycling rates vary (see above).


Returnable refillable bottles

An appealing idea that is complicated to set up in terms of collection points and bottle washing, and bottles that are going to be reused need to be heavier. It has been trialled on a small scale by UK supermarkets Tesco and Waitrose and by London’s Sustainable Wine Solutions through its retail arm Borough Wines. One region that has mastered it is Styria in Austria. The refillable 499g Styria bottle (Steiermarkflasche) launched at the end of 2011 is used by more than 300 wineries. There are 430 collection points (in SPAR supermarkets and other partners in the scheme) and, according to Styria’s State Councillor for Sustainability, it saves around 6000 tonnes of CO2 and 96% in energy consumption annually.


So, to conclude: there is progress, but more needs to be done more quickly by more wine producers and retailers and by glass manufacturers.
