During transport, we protect our bottles from impacts and temperature changes with packaging consisting of two elements, made of two different materials:
The part in polystyrene has been specially designed for transporting bottles: fitted into ad hoc compartments, they remain still and in the correct position.
Because the excellent performance of this material guarantees maximum protection from impacts and temperature changes – the two major dangers during transport.
Thanks to its molecular structure made up of 98% small air cushions, polystyrene (EPS)
Expanded polystyrene (EPS), the core of our packaging, has ideal features for guaranteeing the best protection from impacts and temperature changes.
According to an LCA study – which assesses the environmental impact of the processing, use and disposal of materials – polystyrene is the best material of all among those destined to the packaging industry in terms of eco-friendliness.
Before disposal, our polystyrene packaging can be reused as a container for transporting wine, or as a wine holder for storing bottles. In this case, we recommend a well-ventilated environment with at least 70% humidity and a constant temperature between 12 to 16 degrees.
This temperature is also important during transport, not just for storage.
Glass, cardboard, cork, aluminium… as well as polystyrene, all the packaging materials we use to send our wine, and its contents, can be recycled: they just need to be put in the right bin.
To avoid mistakes, here are the international codes and groups for each material: for collection criteria, check the instructions of your local council or your country.
