Washington Post: Lighter wine bottles don’t affect quality and are better for the planet

Tablas Creek Chooses lighter glass bottles landscape

In a great new perspective column by Washington Post Wine Writer Dave McIntyre, Tablas Creek gets highlighted for our work moving to (and educating consumers on) lightweight bottles. From his introduction:

Those behemoths weighing as much as a kilogram when empty are not yet extinct, but they may be close to endangered. More and more wineries are shifting to bottles under 600 grams, even closer to 500 and as low as 380 grams. This is great news, and not just for our backs and our wrists. It’s good for our planet.

Bravo, Dave!
