Welcome to Greencroft Bottling
Welcome to Greencroft Bottling, one of the UK’s top contract wine packers with a relentless passion for innovation, personal service and superb quality.
Greencroft Bottling is one of the UK’s top contract wine packers with a relentless passion for innovation, personal service and superb quality.
BRC AA+ accredited, we believe that bottling in the UK brings enormous benefits for wine producers, consumers and the environment.
Our goal is to ensure that, whilst in our care, the brand owner’s vision is brought to bottle as brilliantly and authentically as possible.
Continuous investment in our filling lines has given us the capability to fill up to 95,000 bottles, cans and boxes of wine per hour, which is equal to around 200 million litres per year. We pride ourselves on our outstanding quality and attention to detail and are BRC AA+ rated.
Greencroft Two will become the UK’s most sustainable wine bottling facility, powered by renewable wind and solar power.
To support the growth of Greencroft Bottling, we are building a new facility that will be powered entirely by renewable wind and solar power, all generated on-site.
The new £20million building will be more than 22,000 square metres (around 240,000 square feet, equivalent to about four football pitches) and will more than double the potential capacity at Greencroft Bottling to up to 400million litres per year, which is equivalent to around a quarter (28%) of all wine sold in the UK.

Ongoing investment in the latest technology. In 2019 we installed the UK’s first 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, and RTDs. We can fill 187ml, 200ml and 250ml slimline can formats.
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.
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.Find out more

Attention to detail is the driving force behind every stage of our bottling process.
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 three 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.Find out more
