It is common for the end customer (who buys a bottle at a wine store or restaurant) to never see the boxes in which wine is stored.
However, for the bottles to reach our table, they travel stored in boxes, usually only seen by the supply department.
By 2015, each Dona Berta Wines wine placed on the market (six different references) had a specific box that could not be used for another type of wine or for one from the following year’s harvest, resulting in an extremely high level of waste.
We considered this an unsustainable situation and, in 2016, we decided to take measures to resolve it.
Since 2016, we have created a universal box, compatible with all references and that can also be used for a future harvest. In 2017, two years after implementation, our financial savings are almost twice the cost, resulting in a saving of nearly 200 boxes/year.
