Bag-In-Box wines are not clearly understood and more awareness needs to be created.
So, just what are Bag-In-Box wines? The outside package is a corrugated box which holds a collapsible bag in the inside of the box. This collapsible bag is key in keeping the wine fresher longer than traditional glass bottles. Once the bag has been opened, the bag slowly collapses and does not allow oxygen into the bag. This prevents oxidation and the wine from going stale. The flavor of the wine is retained and each glass you have will taste like the first one-fresh and full of flavor. Also, most Bag-In-Box wines contain no sulfites (preservatives) because the collapsible bag preserves the freshness of the wine.
Bag-In-Box wines have several green effects over the traditional glass wine bottle. First of all, Bag-In-Box wines use 91% less packaging materials and that means that less materials are being sent to our landfills (www.aboutboxedwine.com). That's very promising as wine sales are rising in this down economy. The boxes that these wines come in are 100% recyclable and the inside bag is a number 7 and can also be recycled wherever number 7 is accepted. Or, if you prefer to reuse things, the bags can be reused to hold other liquids, for a picnic or hike, or you can cut the spout off and reuse the bag as a sandwich bag.
Secondly, the packaging of Bag-In-Box wines generate 79% less greenhouse gas emissions as compared to an equal volume of wine packaged in traditional glass bottles. The push is on world-wide to stop greenhouse gas emissions, and this is the wine industries attempt to play their part in this endeavor.
There are several consumer benefits to purchasing Bag-In-Box wines besides the green ones listed above. First of all, your wine will stay fresher than bottled wine after opening due to the lack of oxidation. Most Bag-In-Box wines suggest finishing the wine in 6 weeks or less to keep that fresh taste. That's much longer than an open bottle of wine in the refrigerator, which after one week usually has less flavor. And here's a really good benefit-Bag-In-Box wines are easy to open. There's no cork or corkscrew needed. All you have to do is unscrew the screwcap and pour! No more pieces of cork floating in your wine glass!
Typically speaking, when you purchase a Bag-In-Box wine, you'll probably enjoy a savings in price because the packaging costs less than bottled wine and wineries are passing this savings on to consumers. Wineries are hoping that consumers will enjoy the new pricing and packaging, and become repeat customers.
Since there are no glass bottles with Bag-In-Box, you can carry the box anywhere and not have to worry about glass breakage.
Restaurants and bars have several advantages in using Bag-In-Box wines over the traditional glass bottles. Since boxed wines hold more wine in less packaging, that means more shelf space in the wine cellar for these establishments. That also boils down to less costs and hopefully, restaurants and bars will pass these savings on to their customers. With Bag-In-Box wines staying fresher longer, restaurants and bars can offer a larger selection of single glass, half-carafes, and carafes to their customers. Of course, you won't know that the carafe of wine you ordered probably came from a Bag-In-Box wine, and most of us have probably already experienced this new packaging in wine but didn't know it.
Bag-In-Box wines are becoming more and more popular world-wide as it is cost-efficient and green for wineries to use. According to ACNielsen, the United Kingdom and France have approximately 9% of their wines in Bag-In-Box packaging; Norway has 42%, Sweden, 25%, and Australia leads the world with 50% of their wines now in Bag-In-Box packaging. The United States, sadly, has only about 6% of their wines in box form. We need to get on this bandwagon.
The next time you're in a liquor store searching for a wine, go green and try looking for one of these Bag-In-Box wines. More and more of them are becoming available and hopefully, your favorite wine is one of them. By purchasing a boxed wine, you'll enjoy great wine while helping the environment.
