Maison Red (refillable)
Price: $28/bottle  $302.4/case
Wilridge is proud to present it's new line of "Maison" wines -- the first legally refillable wine bottles and kegs in Washington State since the enactment of Prohibition. Presently we feature a white blend, a red blend, and a rotating seasonal varietal in 1.5 liter refillable bottles and 20 liter (5 gallon) stainless steel kegs. These wines are "recession busters" meant for immediate consumption and priced at the equivalent of $10 a bottle -- $20 for the 1.5 liter magnum and $260 for the 20 liter (26.66 bottle) keg. A great deal on quality Washington wine!
The red blend is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Syrah from the Wahluke Slope. The white blend is 60% Chardonnay and 40% Viognier from the Yakima Valley.
There is a refundable deposit of $8 for the refillable bottles and $45 for the kegs. You may return the empty bottles and kegs to anywhere they are sold. We collect the empties and sanitize and refill them at the winery in Seattle. We also reuse the corks, so please return them with the bottles.
Did you know that 60% of the carbon footprint for a wine comes from the bottle? It takes only 5% of the energy necessary to melt a bottle for recycling as it does to wash a bottle for refilling. Wilridge is constantly striving to be the "greenest" winery in Washington State. Eliminating packaging waste fits with our solar powered organic and biodynamic vineyard and our super-local location in central Seattle. We believe our Wilridge Maison wines have the lowest carbon footprint of any wine from Washington State. And the savings we make by refilling the bottles and kegs is passed on to you in low, low prices for 100% Washington wine. Please give them a try and tell your friends!
