About Encore! Glass: Founded in 1975 as a sterilizer and re-seller of wine bottles, Encore comes from ENvironmental COntainer REuse. As demand skyrocketed we transitioned out of sterilization and into distribution of newly manufactured bottles. We have grown from 19 employees and less than 20,000 square feet in 2005 to 60 full-time employees and over 200,000 square feet of warehouse space to begin 2013. Over that same period we have expanded from purchasing from a single factory to partnering today with two North American and one Chinese manufacturer in addition to sourcing premium imports from France and Italy.
