Chief bottle washer: the job is back in the wine biz

Chief Bottle Washer: the title is no longer just a punchline. Bruce Stephens is the CEO of Wine Bottle Renew, a California startup that washes and reuses wine bottles profiled in today’s华尔街日报

“你拿一个瓶子,你清空瓶子,我的上帝,为什么这只是一次性瓶子?”斯蒂芬斯告诉期刊。他指着在牛奶瓶,啤酒瓶甚至可乐瓶中洗掉瓶瓶时代。

重用瓶子是减少葡萄酒碳足迹的重要途径。在我共同撰写主题的论文中,我们发现将空瓶的制造和交付给酿酒厂占了大约一半到四分之三(取决于瓶子的瓶子)所产生的葡萄酒的二氧化碳排放量并消耗,考虑到所有生产和交付阶段,包括葡萄园和酒庄操作。由于在引入闭环中,回收良好。但是,由于能源需求较小,因此重复效果更好。

While the amount of bottles that Wine Bottle Renew can clean in a day still is a drop in the bucket of California’s wine production, it’s good to see that industry heavyweights Kendall Jackson and Sutter Home have invested in the company, which may indicate eventual broader usage.

显然,今天没有标准形状的葡萄酒瓶,因为当天有牛奶或焦炭。但是你觉得什么:如果它鼓励重用,你会喜欢葡萄酒瓶标准化吗?我会,特别是如果瓶子更轻(14-14至19盎司)。闪闪发光的葡萄酒生产商可能是第一个采用者,因为瓶子之间几乎没有变化,葡萄酒贸易中最重。

新西兰酒踩碳足迹在标签上

从明年初开始,一些消费者将能够在标签上购买碳足迹分析的葡萄酒。来自新西兰玛勒伯勒地区的新Sauvignon Blanc,将sport a calculation of greenhouse gas emissionson a per glass basis. Bottles destined for Australia will be the first to receive the notations; other markets will follow with custom calculations from the Carbon Trust, a nonprofit. The wine is made by New Zealand Wine Company, which also owns Grove Mill, run by emissions-guru戴夫皮尔斯

对于标签上的空间很少,图形和数字有助于练习料指示。但如果Carbon-label.org提供有关计算的更多信息,它将更有用。希望估计是保守的,因为我自己的研究表明了mode of transportation matters与实际距离一样多或多,使得难以将一个数字放在澳大利亚或美国的国家,其中漫长的卡车之旅可以比甚至更长的海航增加GHG计算。

提供方法是可以接受的,它是右方向的一步。鉴于新西兰空气中进入的葡萄酒奖现在必须认证“可持续”那perhaps the industry will similarly provide some sort of carrot for other wineries to adopt carbon emissions labeling.

葡萄酒瓶沉积物来到亚利桑那州[民意调查]

You want that wine on the shelf in Flagstaff, AZ? It’ll be $7.99–plus a $2 refundable deposit.

不,这不是官员亚利桑那州实施了一个瓶子存款法增加回收和/或重用,同时为国家电库提高数百万美元

This is a voluntary recycling program called Sustainable Packaging Solutions profiled onAzdailysun.com.。从11月1日开始,一个小组将在标签下首次亮相和红色Kind Vines,专门在Bashas',杂货店。从加利福尼亚队进,葡萄酒将在本地装瓶,其中瓶子也将被清洗和重新填充。

On Good Morning America, box wine edition

I had a great time on GMA today even if it meant waking up before the crack of dawn (although, with a two-year-old son, that’s not exactly a foreign concept to me). Sam Champion is a hoot; I appeared on his weekly segment, “Just One Thing。“这很有趣,很快!用葡萄酒,我们试图在美国早安好“好”!

美国希望自助葡萄酒坦克:谁会填补'呃吗?

Do you want aself-serve tank that dispenses low-priced wines在你附近的商店里?显然,一定的人在这里有许多与最近的帖子相关的非葡萄酒网站,通过Twitter评论了数百人,并在Facebook上有超过5,250人“喜欢”它。

接待是非常积极的,许多评论类似于“我正在搬到法国明天”。或者“我想要其中一个厨房里。”也许最终的恭维来自纽约将坦克放在批准矩阵上的杂志“highbrow-brilliant“今天的杂志中的象限。唯一更精彩的亮度是巴黎评论将他们的整个档案归档在线作家!(好事他们没有看到随后的pairing wine with bacon doughnuts- 等等,那盘子来自于他们!)

为什么你认为这篇文章非常响起,特别是在葡萄酒世界之外?我认为这一部分与美国人真正进入葡萄酒的事实,但肯定会遇到淫乱。此外,它是一个涅赖那天找到一个好的葡萄酒的纽谷。当然也存在环境的角度。然后它也是有点Zany。

但无论出于何种原因,帖子的热情显示了对美国此类分配器的胃口。谁将是第一个实施此处的整个食物?贸易商乔's?Safeway?Binny的?无论是谁(和行业中的一个人告诉我他正在努力),他们肯定可以放心很多媒体报道。

填补:自助坦克将葡萄酒带给法国超市

Keg wine葡萄酒自动售货机刚刚过分提出:500千和一千升坦克已经登陆法国超市。

Bring your own resealable bottles, Poland Spring containers, jerrycans, whatever. Or you can get one at the store. Select your grade (red, white, or rosé). Pump. Print receipt.

Astrid Terzian introduced this concept that hearkens back to a bygone era when wine would arrive in Paris shops in tonneaux and consumers would bring their own flagons to fill. But today, Terzian says, she started this scheme in fall 2008 to fill a niche, tapping into two key themes, environmental awareness and the economy. (She actually wanted to buy a wine property and run a B&B but it was too expensive. So she turned to what she says she knew how to do: sales.) The elimination of packaging mass means that the wine can be shipped much more efficiently from a cost and carbon perspective.

转嫁给消费者的成本节约the form of low prices of 1.45 euros/liter (about $2/liter). She installed her first machine in June 2009 at the Cora supermarket in Dunkirk and now has them installed in eight supermarkets in France. The wines vary; one is a 2009 from the Rhone, technically a vin de pays méditerranée.

至于客户的反应,Terzian表示客户一开始就惹恼了,但是热身到了这个想法,特别是在品味之后。她说,他们经常回来。

Asked via email which is her favorite container to bring to fill, she says she uses a five-liter jug since it is “neither too big nor too small–and it’s typically French.”

更新:我忽略了在帖子中提及我认为这一点,法规允许,将在一年内到美国来到美国。我今天告诉过来给葡萄酒贸易的人。他回答说他已经在努力!

更新2:我唯一关于泵葡萄酒(Aka Chateau La Pompe)的问题是,如果涉及新泽西州和俄勒冈州,他们将需要完全服务,因为他们为天然气做了吗?!

Designing a lighter Champagne bottle

Have you ever lifted a bottle of champagne and thought, “Wow, that’s heavy!” Well, the bottles are heavy partly with good reason: to contain all the sparkly goodness, which can be six times the atmospheric pressure. (And, of course, there’s a little bling factor to the bulk.) Apparently, before sufficiently strong bottles were developed, cellar staff in Champagne would enter the caves with masks akin to a hockey goalie’s to protect against exploding bottles.

Thus physics is a main challenge of reducing the bulk the Champagne bottle. A detailed story in今天的NYT商业部分追踪新的更轻的瓶子的开发,从900克缩小到835克。这款瓶子已经花了多年的设计,而且香槟贸易委员会(CIVC)鼓励其成员以此收获开始,所有这些都以减少葡萄酒的温室气体排放的名义。较轻的瓶子意味着2,400瓶瓶子可以适合同一大小的卡车,从而减少所需的行程量。虽然故事中的行业人士说,虽然故事中的行业数据说,但瓶子不便于 - 除非它被广泛调整,这将推动成本。

因此,你在一个盒子里,rosérosé?

几年前,我有一个在nyt中的op-ed在一个盒子里争论葡萄酒。从那时起,盒葡萄酒销售飙升,还有更多的选择,外国和国内,都有市场。

但是一个似乎令人讨厌的国家的一个类别是rosé。鉴于它可能是典型的“今天在这里,明天”葡萄酒,似乎特别适合箱内的箱子格式。横跨法国的冰箱坐在夏天的盒子里罗斯罗斯;从温暖的一天来看,这几乎是一个夏天的仪式,挤出一个漂亮的寒冷(罗斯,即)。并且,临床上证明,有一盒ROS©也是一种很好的方式make friends with any passersby由于它总是冷,并且可能是一个巨大的价值。

Last week I was on vacation and wished I had a box of rosé in the fridge. But I couldn’t find one. Fortunately, we had some of the snappy Chateau de Roquefort, “Corail” 2009 from the Cotes de Provence. Maybe next summer, I’ll be able to squeeze off a glass when I’m on vacation?
