Packaging solutions provider Ardagh Group, Glass – North America is supplying glass bottles for winery Rombauer Vineyards.
The glass production for the winery is being carried out from Ardagh’s production facility in Sapulpa, Oklahoma.
The company is producing dead leaf green-coloured glass bottles for Rombauer Vineyards.
Rombauer Vineyards winemaker associate Andrew Holloway said: “Purchasing glass bottles that are made in the US gives Rombauer the ability to reinvest in the American economy.
“Having worked with Ardagh multiple years, we were confident in their transition to a new production facility and maintaining the same high-quality glass we have become accustomed to year-in and year-out.
“Their dedication to exceptional glass production makes it a great partnership that allows us to have peace of mind that our glass will arrive on time and to the standard we expect.”
Ardagh expanded its production of wine bottles to its Sapulpa facility to meet the growing demand from the wine market and serve its customers with a ‘shorter’ and ‘less complex supply chain’.
The expansion will also enable the company to offer ‘a stable supply of high-quality glass bottles’ in the region.
Ardagh supplies 100% and endlessly recyclable glass bottles in the US and a wide variety of premium wine bottles in various colours, sizes, styles and finishes.
Ardagh North American Glass business unit chief commercial officer John T Shaddox said: “Ardagh’s premium wine bottles for Rombauer Vineyards signify the brand’s reputation for quality and sustainability, and Ardagh takes great pride in this partnership.”
Last November, Ardagh Group, Glass – North America entered a partnership with Virginia-based premier brewery Parkway Brewing Company to produce all 12oz long-neck glass bottles in the US.
