Wine Cases: Produced from Kraft (unbleached, natural brown) cardboard to ensure an environmentally friendly and recyclable medium. Kraft cardboard is chlorine-free and has a higher percentage of recycled paper within the board than bleached white board products.
Labels: Inks used for labels and cartons are water-based, not solvent based.
Bottles: Glass used for our Hess Select Wines have been light-weighted, using lighter glass that reduces carbon emissions from transporting lighter cases. All bottles use up to 55% recycled glass.
Capsules and Corks: Natural corks are biodegradable and renewable. Tin capsules, which are used for all of our Napa Valley wines, are recyclable.
