Ardagh Group has entered into a long-term supply agreement with Copper Cane Wines & Provisions to manufacture all of its 750ml wine bottles in the US.
The bottling giant will commence production with the winery's 2019 Vintage Series, at its glass manufacturing facility in Madera, California.
This partnership will help the Napa Valley-based wine company to meet its sustainability goals and reduce its environmental footprint.
Owner of Copper Cane Wines & Provisions, Joseph Wagner, explained, "As a fifth-generation winemaker born and raised in Napa, I take pride in the land that I come from and buying our glass bottles from a domestic package supplier is important to me.
"At Copper Cane Wines & Provisions, we are always striving to be more sustainable in the supply chain and we look forward to continuing that mission with Ardagh glass bottles."
Commenting on the partnership, John T Shaddox, the chief commercial officer of Ardagh’s North American glass business unit, said, "Ardagh is passionate about working with Copper Cane Wines & Provisions to meet their sustainability initiatives by supporting the American economy with environmentally-friendly glass bottles that are made in the USA."
Ardagh Group is one of the leading manufacturers of 100% recyclable glass bottles in various colours, sizes, styles and finishes in the US.
