A southern Oregon winery is trying to reduce waste by spearheading “The Rinse Project”. The idea is for winemakers to re-use bottles instead of recycling them curbside.
Much of the carbon footprint of the wine industry comes from its bottles.
Cowhorn Winery in Applegate Valley plans to send bottles to a new California company called Wine Bottle Renew. The company uses a high-tech method to sort and clean glassware.
