If I was a wine producer I wouldn't use PET for my existing brands, but develop new brands where the alternative packaging is part of the story.

Honeck, a telegraph operator and the son of a wealthy dealer in farm equipment, was 21 years old when he was arrested in Chicago in September 1899 for the killing of Walter F. He and another man, Herman Hundhausen, had gone to Koeller’s room armed with an eight-inch bowie knife, a sixteen-inch bowie knife, a silver-plated case knife, a .44 caliber revolver, a .38 caliber revolver, a .22 caliber revolver, a club, and two belts of cartridges.
They also carried a getaway kit: two satchels filled with dime novels, obscene etchings, and clothes from which the names had been cut ( Koeller, who was later found by the police sitting in a chair stabbed in the back, had testified for the prosecution some years earlier when Honeck and Hundhausen were charged with setting a number of fires in their home town, Hermann, Missouri (, 5 September 1899).
As with all plastics, PET allows diffusion of oxygen.
To counter this, barrier technologies and oxygen scavengers are incorporated into the PET construction.
But the latest developmentand one making headlines in the UK at the momentis the appearance of 75 cl (standard sized) PET bottles on supermarket shelves.
Two wines, a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and an Australian Shiraz Ros (pictured above) have been launched by UK supermarket Sainsburys in PET. PET, a plastic which has the more formal name of polyethylene teraphthalate, has been used for wine before, most commonly with small 25 cl bottles, and also with 1.5 litre bottles of plonk from the south of France.Later this year Aussie producer Wolf Blass will be launching two of its Green Label wines in PET. But this is the first time that wine in standard sized 75 cl bottles has been presented in plastic on supermarket shelves.The second reason it is newsworthy is because of the current interest in reducing carbon dioxide emissions: this project has been supported by WRAP (Waste Resources and Action Programme), a government-sponsored initiative.The UK consumes around 1 billion bottles of wine each year, and estimates are that reducing the bottles for all these to the lightest available would save around 90 000 tons of CO.If this is coupled to bottling in the UK, with bulk shipment of the wine, then the savings are magnified because around twice the volume of wine can be shipped in bulk per container. Lets look into the technical issues in more detail.Sainsburys two PET wines are shipped in bulk and then bottled in the UK at Corby, in Northamptonshire (
