Welcome to Greencroft Bottling

WELCOME TO GREENCROFT BOTTLING, ONE OF THE LARGEST CONTRACT WINE BOTTLERS IN THE UK

Greencroft Bottling is one of the largest contract wine bottlers in the UK, working with some of the world’s leading wine companies. We pride ourselves on our outstanding quality and attention to detail.

Continuous investment in our filling lines has given us the capability to fill up to 90,000 bottles and boxes of wine per hour, which is equal to around 200 million litres per year.

Our seven lines enable Greencroft Bottling to pack a range of products in a variety of formats including:

Glass: 18.7cl, 37.5cl, 50cl, 70cl, 75cl, 1l, 1.5l

PET: 18.7cl, 75cl, 1l

Bag-in-box: 2.25 litre, 3 litre and 18 litre

Pouches: 1.5 litre and 2.25 litre

Cans: 200ml and 250ml slimline

 

We have also installed the UK’s first – and presently only – large scale wine canning line.

With a filler speed of 17,000 cans per hour, our filler has x21 valves and a three head Ferrum Seamer, capable of filling still and sparkling wine, soft drinks and RTDs. We’re initially focusing on 200ml and 250ml slimline can formats and are already geared up for 187ml formats when they are released to market in 2020. Find out more here

The quality of our finished product needs to be of the highest possible standard, a task our QA team works hard to achieve and maintain. Our onsite lab uses two Foss Winescan machines to analyse wine at various stages during the wine handling process. The machines measure levels of SO2, sugar, preservatives, acidity, colour, ABV, clarity and PH. To learn more about Greencroft Bottling’ process, please click here.

Being a sustainable business is very important to us and our customers. We are predominantly powered by renewable wind energy generated on site from our own wind farm. We believe we are the only wind powered bottling facility on the planet. The bottles we fill are made from partly recycled glass and through our partners we recycle our waste and surplus packaging materials including plastic, cardboard, label reels, caps and glass.
