Ardagh Direct Program Offers Wineries a Direct Purchase Option for American-Made Wine Bottles

Ardagh Group, Glass – North America, a division of Ardagh Group and the largest manufacturer of glass bottles for the U.S. wine market, announced today the launch of its Ardagh Direct program.

Ardagh Direct provides wineries of all sizes, located West of the Rocky Mountains, the option to purchase glass wine bottles directly from Ardagh Group, Glass – North America, the only glass wine bottle manufacturer to produce all of its wine bottles in the U.S. With a dedicated sales team, wineries can purchase from the largest range of premium wine bottles in a variety of sizes, colors and styles and have the flexibility to order less than truckload (LTL) quantities.

“Ardagh Group values the collaborative partnerships it has with the North American wineries,” said Alex Robertson, Chief Commercial Officer for Ardagh Group’s North American Glass division. “The new Ardagh Direct team has the knowledge and resources to work alongside customers to evaluate their needs and share our knowledge of the wine industry, while offering a product line that is relevant to the marketplace.”

With a wine-industry history that spans more than 125 years, Ardagh Group, Glass – North America is the largest producer of glass wine bottles made 100 percent in the U.S. Ardagh Group produces glass wine bottles from its three glass manufacturing facilities located in the heart of the three major wine-producing areas in the country, including California, the Pacific Northwest and the New York State area. Ardagh Group’s full-service one-million-square-foot distribution facility in California is the largest repack center in the region, and is designed to meet all of the bottling and distribution needs of West Coast wineries.

Wineries can contact Ardagh Direct via email at, or via phone at 800-428-8642. Or, you can meet the team at the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium at the Sacramento Convention Center this week.
