Sustainable Wine Solutions from Borough Wines

Suppliers of great wines from great winemakers in sustainable formats.

We work with some incredible producers from around the world, relationships with vineyards built up since 2002 through our Borough Market roots at Borough Wines. We focus on low intervention producers who are often using natural techniques and regenerative farming practices. Many of our wines are also organic, HVE3, or working towards those standards. We transport wine in bulk to reduce our carbon footprint and package onsite at our London based urban winery into our our Bottle Return and WineAgain (coming soon!) projects, and into reusable kegs for Wine on Tap. We aim to put an end to single use glass with circularity at the heart of our supply chain.

Sustainable Wine Solutions from Borough Wines also provide innovative quality driven Zero Waste wine systems to the wider wine trade: Wine-on-Tap, FlexiKeg, VinoTap™ and bottling for either Bottle Return or following the ReuseReady Charter. Combining the quality control benefits of a commercial bottling and kegging line with our onsite lab and an artisan approach, we are able to assist with all aspects of packaging bulk wines keeping circularity at the heart of any project.

Our in-house team of operations and winery experts manage all elements of the supply chain from producer to your business, ensuring watertight quality control every step of the way. Read more about Who We Are.

Zero Waste Solutions
our services prioritise convenience, quality and sustainability. NO WASTED OR SPOILED WINE, QUICK SERVICE, GREAT MARGINS AND NO FUSS FROM WASTE DISPOSAL.
Embracing the circular economy by minimising the resources we use and reusing those we do is the only way to zero waste. This is why we import in bulk, bottling and kegging entirely in-house at our Walthamstow winery with an emphasis on reduce and reuse.

What is the Bottle Return Scheme?

Bringing Back the Returnable Bottle.

The Bottle Return scheme brings a new, sustainable lease of life to the traditional wine bottle: each one can be returned, sterilised and reused at least 30 times, reducing the carbon footprint of each bottle by up to 95%.

Why doesn’t recycling go far enough? According to RecycleNow, U.K. hospitality alone throws an estimated 129,000 tonnes of glass into landfill every year: we offer a practical, convenient way of breaking this one way wasteful chain whilst still supplying the traditional wine bottle consumers love. We collect and deliver in our recycled plastic crates, saving you from the expense and hassle of glass and cardboard waste collections. Convenience, sustainability and quality, bottled.

WHAT IS VINOTAP™?

The Zero waste alternative to bag in box.

The VinoTap™  is a compact, 10 litre stainless steel alternative to our larger refill keg system. VinoTap™ offers a flexible, ready to pour wine-on-tap solution with no set up costs.

What makes VinoTap™ Zero Waste? With no cardboard or internal bag to dispose of, and perfect preservation technology, this is a truly Zero Waste alternative to Bag-in-Box: all the convenience, none of the waste.

WHAT IS WINE ON TAP?

THE U.K.’S ONLY 100% REUSABLE WINE KEGS. SAY NO TO ONE WAY PLASTIC KEGS!

 Wine-on-Tap delivers wine via a keg system, just as you’d pull a pint of beer. We are the only U.K. supplier of Wine–on–Tap using reusable kegs. Our kegs offer incredible quality preservation, no wastage, perfect quick pours and a massive reduction in your glass and cardboard waste output. 

Our in–house cellar team manages every step of the installation process and continued maintenance support. Over 15 years of expertise and innovation in Wine–on–Tap ensures quality assurance and top customer service.
