Wine bottles for Plata Wine Partners

Ardagh Group, Glass – North America, a business unit of Ardagh Group and the largest domestic manufacturer of glass bottles for the U.S. wine market, announced a supply agreement with Plata Wine Partners to manufacture all of their wine bottles.

The agreement pairs the largest independent coastal grape grower in California with the largest domestic manufacturer of glass bottles for the U.S. wine market.

The 750ml wine bottles for Plata Wine Partners leverage the brand’s existing bottle design assets with a modern, premium look and feel.

“Our focus over the last few years has been to reduce our carbon footprint and increase overall sustainability,” said Scott Smith, President and CEO at Plata. “When we took a hard look at our processes, the largest area for improvement was through packaging. Partnering with Ardagh Group gave us the opportunity to utilise premier and sustainable glass bottles for our wines while also supporting local, domestic operations.”

Glass bottles are 100 percent and endlessly recyclable, and they can go from the recycling bin to the store shelf in as little as 30 days. Glass wine bottles preserve the true taste of the product and deliver great shelf appeal and brand differentiation in a premium, sustainable package.

“Ardagh is proud to partner with Plata Wine Partners to provide consumers with high-quality, American made glass wine bottles while helping the winery meet their sustainability goals, which in turn helps reduce their carbon footprint to align with their vineyard operations,” said John T Shaddox, Chief Commercial Officer for Ardagh's North American Glass business unit.

For more than 125 years, Ardagh has been producing glass bottles in the U.S. and offers a wide selection of premium wine bottles in a variety of colours, sizes, styles and finishes.

Ardagh is dedicated to the wine market with capabilities and resources to grow with wineries every step of the way. For wine bottles in less than truckload (LTL) or truckload quantities, customers can contact Ardagh directly at 707-200-9350 (West) or 317-558-1585 (Central/East) or marketing.glass.na@ardaghgroup.com.
