Goodbye bubble wrap, hello reused cardboard!

An Australian cardboard “gown” to dress up
your Italian wine!

Cardboard boxes from all over the world now go through the wrapping process to be clad in the cardboard mesh that you now find in your packages.

*We limit the use of bubble wrap as much as possible and reserve its use for certain applications, including the shipping of bottles purchased by lottery.
