Wine Cases: Product cases are produced from Kraft (unbleached, natural brown) cardboard to ensure an environmentally friendly and recyclable medium is used. Kraft cardboard is chlorine-free and has a higher percentage of recycled paper within the board than bleached white board products.
Labels: Inks used for labels and cartons are water-based, not solvent based.
Bottles: Glass used for our Hess Select Wines (which represent a majority of our total production) use the lightest weight glass that is available in a punt style. All of our bottles are made with 35-60% recycled glass.
Capsules and Corks: Our natural corks are biodegradable and renewable. Tin capsules, which are used for all of our Napa Valley wines, are recyclable.
