Wine bottles come in a variety of sizes and colors such as classic green and amber, which help keep out ultraviolet radiation and preserve the flavor and aroma of wine. To store larger amounts of wine, choose from containers such as stainless steel barrels. Bottles can be fitted with cork or threaded cap closures, and handheld and semi-automatic machines make corking and capping faster.
What Types of Wine Bottles Are Available?
A popular choice for storing wine, glass bottles are nonporous, so they protect contents from contaminants. As glass has a near-zero chemical reaction rate, it prevents chemicals from leaching into the wine and altering it. Some brands choose to store wine that is going to be consumed within 6 to 12 months of bottling in plastic bottles, which are lightweight and can help reduce shipping-related expenses. Plastic is shatter-resistant, so it keeps bottles from breaking easily. Wine bottles come in miniature or regular sizes and can have flat bases or push-up bottoms so that sediments fall and are separated from the wine. Empty wine bottles are eco-friendly as they can easily be recycled.
What Types of Wine Closures and Accessories Are Available?
Wine bottles with corks are used to prevent oxidation from occurring too quickly. A lightweight and natural choice, wine corks come in the traditional cylindrical shape or are tapered for a unique look. Try bar top stoppers that combine plastic caps with synthetic cork as they're easy to remove and reuse. Clear wine bottles with caps such as threaded, tamper-evident tops allow for easy opening and ensure product integrity. Use handheld wine corkers to prevent cork damage during insertion or electric cappers to increase productivity.
Roll-On Pilfer Evident (ROPE) caps also known as Roll-On Pilfer Proof (ROPP), are growing in popularity in the wine market today. ROPE Caps provide an easy way to seal your bottles. When unscrewed, the cap leaves behind a tamper-evident band alerting customers that the packaging has been compromised. When the customer needs to store the remaining product, the cap can be screwed back onto the bottle. ROPE Caps are available in a variety of colors to suit your unique brand. ROPE Caps must be used with bottles that have a ROPE finish and applied with a ROPE capping machine . With the trend toward more ROPE caps, capping solutions are becoming easier. To support this growing trend, you can find a “Mobile Bottler,” who will travel to your winery to offer capping services.
