How To Choose The Right Wine Packaging

Whether you are a vineyard or are on vacation and want to send some bottles of wine home, it's important to consider the wine packaging that you will use. The packaging gift box design of a red wine product not only needs to consider its protective effect on the product itself, but also needs to beautify and promote the brand and the brand, which can bring enjoyment to consumers at the visual level, thereby generating the desire to buy the product. , and ultimately to promote the transaction of the product. There are many kinds of wine shipping boxes that are available based upon the construction used as well as how many bottles that will fit at a time.

The bottles of wine weigh plenty on their own, so it's important to be able to pack the wine into wine boxes without adding too much additional weight. Otherwise, shipping costs will be outrageous and that will have an impact on how much wine will actually be purchased. It's also important that the bottles of wine do not touch each other to avoid breaking during the shipment.

Wine Gift Box

Many of the wine packaging will focus on a cardboard box with an insert that will be custom fitted. The insert can be made of cardboard or Styrofoam. Cardboard will often be designed very light weight and will have supports that allow for various shapes of the bottle. This design will usually allow for the bottle to lie on its side during shipment.

The other type of insert for inside of the wines boxes is Styrofoam. These are designed so that the wine will stand vertically inside the box. Because the styrofoam is already cut and will not allow for the same flexibility as cardboard, these will be for standard size wine bottles only. If the bottle is longer or wider than a standard bottle, it will likely not fit inside of the Styrofoam insert.

There are other ways to ship a bottle of wine, however wine packaging with inserts designed for wine bottles work best. This is because the inserts will protect the glass bottle against impact. Shipping companies are not always gentle with boxes despite them being marked fragile. To ensure that your Cabernets and Chardonnays make it in one piece, wine shipping boxes will be the best choice.

Once you have decided upon the kind of packaging that you will use, the amount of wine being shipped per box will need to be considered. It is possible to ship as many as a dozen bottles of wine at one time. Usually the Styrofoam inserts will better allow for this, however there are cardboard ones available. If you plan on shipping a considerable distance, Styrofoam will be the best solution for your wine shipping box. This is because the extra cushion will also prevent the wine from getting too hot.

When you are looking for wine shipping boxes, you will need to consider all of the various options so that you get your wine shipped safely. If you are only shipping two bottles versus a dozen bottles, you will be able to find wine boxes that are specifically made for the various quantities. If you are a vineyard, it's important to have several different sizes available to your customers so that they can buy as little or as much wine from you as possible and know that they have a way of getting it home safely.

Wine boxes can be purchased online as well as in shipping stores. Each of the various types will have different prices associated with them. While the Styrofoam ones will be more expensive, they offer the extra cushion that many people look forward to. If your bottles are oddly shaped, however, cardboard may be your only solution. You will want to weigh the pros and cons and select the boxes that fit your needs best.

Why No Plastic Containers for Wine or Liquors?

Alcoholic drinks have a very long history in the world, and there are many types of them. But as you may have noticed that they are seldom contained in plastic bottles, especially liquors. Even the light alcoholic beers are mostly sold in metal cans or glass bottles. In the past when the packaging technology was underdeveloped, liquors are generally held in clay pots. Nowadays, most of the wine and liquor containers are made of porcelain and glass bottles, and very few are made of metal bottles, and seldom used "plastic" bottles. We may even hear that liquor should never be packed in "plastic" containers. Why? 

Glass Wine Bottle

The main reason that "plastic" containers are not recommended for liquor packaging is related to the material of the plastic itself. The composition of liquor is very complex, containing various organic substances, including alcohol, esters, aldehydes, etc.  And any type of plastic is composed of polymers. Many even have a similar molecular structure to liquors. Although  some plastics are non-toxic, it can be dissolved in alcohol, which would have an impact on the drinkers' health. Also, polymers dissolve in alcohol over time, and the longer the liquor is left in, the more it will dissolve. Not only the wine becomes impure, but also the taste will definitely be compromised.

However, glass and ceramics are mainly inorganic compounds such as silica, which will not react with liquors. So they will guarantee the original taste of the wine & liquors and does not produce substances that are harmful to the human body. Also, the main component of liquor is ethanol, which is easy to volatilize, but the stability plastics is not so good. As long as it is placed in a glass bottle or ceramic bottle and sealed, it can provide a better environment and can be stored for a long time.

Does Light Affect Wine Quality?

The short answer is that light can definitely affect wine, but we need to take a closer look at the physics and chemistry of it all to understand why and how in what is called light-strike reactions, which can impart off-odors to wine, what the French call goût de lumière.

Wine, Light & Dark Glass Bottles

Wine is sensitive to the damaging rays of light, particularly ultraviolet (UV) rays from sunlight and fluorescent lighting; that's why wine (and beer) is packaged in dark bottles-the best example is Port in those familiar, dark, opaque bottles. Wines packaged in clear glass bottles are meant for quick consumption and should be stored in carton boxes until such a time.

Light, Wine And Bottles

 All forms of radiation, including visible light ultraviolet (UV) rays and X-rays, have energy that is directly proportional to their frequencies or inversely proportional to their wavelengths-that is, high-frequency waves have short wavelengths, and vice versa. And the greater the energy, the greater the catalytic effect of chemical reactions in wine.

Why are most wine or liquor bottles made of glass?

Glass bottle is a traditional domestic beverage packaging vessel, and glass is also a kind of packaging material with historical significance. With a variety of packaging materials sprouting up in the markets, glassware still occupies a vital influence in beverage packaging, which is closely related to its packaging characteristics that other packaging materials cannot match.

According to statistics, 71% of wine utensils in the world are made of glass, and China is the country with the largest proportion of beer bottles in the world, accounting for 55% of all glass beer bottles, exceeding 50 billion bottles every year. Apart from opening glass bottles, I have not seen other packaging for wine, health-care wine, and bee wine. This can be seen from the key influence of glass bottles on wine packaging. So why are so many wine bottles made of glass?

What Message Can Be Seen from the Wine Packaging?

 Although the packaging of modern wines, regardless of their grades, is becoming more and more exquisite, we can still see some information about the quality of the wine from the details of the outer packaging of the wine bottle.

Wine Packaging

Shrinkwrap Seal

The shrink wrap is the outer seal of the bottle, which is a coat that seals the wine cork and the bottle opening. The most important shrink wrap materials on the market are plastic, aluminum foil, and wax seal. Some are even double-layered plastic and aluminum foil, or double-layer aluminum foil. Basically, when we see the aluminum foil and wax-sealed wine caps, we can infer that this wine is better than plastic wine caps at least in terms of ageing. Generally speaking, plastic wine caps are common in some entry-level wines. In France, they are table wine or regional wines. So when everyone sees the wine covered with a plastic wine cap, you can probably judge that this is a more basic wine that is suitable for drinking now and should not be kept for long. Generally, the drinking period of this kind of wine is 2-3 years. If you see more than this period, it is very likely that the wine has lost its freshness and the drinking period has passed.
