Packaging Type and Wine
This is a mini-review that looks at how different types of packaging can impact the sensory characteristics of wine. This mini-review compared glass bottles, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), Bag-in-box (BIB), aluminum cans, and Terta Pak. Some of the most common packaging types used by the wine industry at the moment. This mini-review looked at the history of wine packaging, the impact packaging type has on the flavor profile of wine, and consumers attitudes towards the different types of packaging. While glass is still the dominate packaging material within the wine industry and by consumer demand however, economic and environmental concerns are driving the industry and consumers to investigate and adopt alternative packaging materials.
