Bag-in-box keeps changing the shape of wine

Move over bottles. Badger Mountain Winery, Kennewick, WA, wanted to produce Washington State's first certified organic wines, which led owner Bill Powers on a quest for a bag-in-box (BIB) format to supplement the winery's traditional 750-mL business. He realized that the BIB would offer a great way to assure that his wines stay fresh. He chose one from Scholle Packaging (www.scholle.com) with a collapsible inner bag. The Badger wines with no added sulfites can stay fresh longer than if in a opened bottle. Badger Mountain's 3-L boxed wines are distributed in Washington State and by 22 distributors throughout the U.S. The winery's national sales director, Mickey Dunn, attributes the relatively quick success of the boxed wines to the fact that they are certified organic, offer quality for the price and are packaged in a special way. Badger Mountain fills the BIBs for just-in-time delivery.
