Two weeks ago we posted about Truett-Hurst's new square wine bottle. This week, we get word that they have released the first paper wine bottle under brand name Paper Boy. The "bottle" is a molded outer shell in the shape of a wine bottle, made from recycled cardboard with a plastic liner.
The entire package is 85 percent lighter than a glass bottle and is easily recyclable. The winery plans to partner with Safeway for the initial release. Introductory Paper Boy wines are a 2012 Paso Robles Red Blend ($14.99) and a 2012 Mendocino Chardonnay ($13.99).
