Minimal Packaging

In 2000, De Bortoli Wines became a signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant (APC), developing a number of five-year plans to reduce the impact of packaging on the environment, including lighter weight bottles, the elimination of cardboard dividers and recycling of packaging materials. 

Embracing packaging covenant ideals resulted in the redesign of packaging to produce less waste and improve recyclability, with the aim to reduce the quantity of packaging materials by 5% per litre of wine produced by 2027 compared to 2017.
