There are sound environmental and commercial reasons for increasing the bulk importation of wine into the UK, and producing wine bottles from lighter weight glass. And contrary to some misconceptions, writes Sally Easton, importing wine in bulk need not mean a drop in quality or even a lower image with the consumer.


One need only look at the advances in quality control of bag-in-box wine sold in the UK, much of which is imported in bulk.

Consider the costs of packaging, of shipping, of warehousing. From a global environmental perspective, the efficiency of boxed wine is clearly a plus.
