ARDAGH PRESS RELEASE

Indianapolis (May 28, 2020) – Ardagh Group, Glass – North America, a business unit of Ardagh Group, is supplying Wollersheim Winery with wine bottles designed and manufactured in the U.S.

Ardagh’s premium, contemporary wine bottles for Wollersheim Winery signify the brand’s reputation for quality and sustainability. Preserving the environment is a priority at Wollersheim and packaging wine in glass and recycling the bottles are one of its many environmentally-friendly practices at the winery.

Glass bottles are 100 percent and endlessly recyclable, and they can go from the recycling bin to the store shelf in as little as 30 days. Glass wine bottles preserve the true taste of the product and deliver great shelf appeal and brand differentiation in a premium, sustainable package.

“Wollersheim Winery enjoys working with Ardagh, and we trust them with our business,” said winemaker Philippe Coquard. “We are proud to support U.S. manufacturing jobs by purchasing glass bottles made in the U.S. to showcase our wine in high-quality, sustainable glass packaging.”

For more than 125 years, Ardagh has been producing innovative glass bottles in the U.S. and offers a wide selection of premium wine bottles in a variety of colors, sizes, styles and finishes.

“As the largest domestic manufacturer of glass bottles for the U.S. wine market, Ardagh is proud to supply bottles to Wollersheim Winery, a leader in the Midwest wine industry,” said John T Shaddox, Chief Commercial Officer for Ardagh’s North American Glass division. “Ardagh’s glass packaging meets our customers’ and end consumers’ environmental requirements while contributing to a closed-loop, sustainable supply chain.”
