Greencroft Bottling is one of the largest contract wine bottlers in the UK.
We are capable of filling up to 90,000 bottles and boxes of wine per hour, the equivalent of up to 200 million litres per year. Working with some of the world’s leading wine companies, we pride ourselves on our outstanding quality and attention to detail with a dedicated Quality Assurance team and, as such are BRC Grade AA+ rated.
Our high-tech production lines enable us to pack a range of products in a variety of formats including 187ml glass and PET, 37.5cl, 50cl, 70cl, 75cl, 1l and 1.5l. We can also fill 2.25 litre, 3 litre and 18 litre bag-in-box, and both keg and pouches. We have installed the UK’s first wine canning line capable to fill still and sparkling wine and RTDs in 187ml, 200ml and 250ml slimline can formats.
Our business continues to grow and we have embarked on ambitious plans to develop a purpose-built 200,000 ft2 (18,580m2) bottling facility at our main site in County Durham. When completed, Greencroft Two will be the most modern and environmentally sustainable wine bottling facility in the world, housing new filling lines – including canning and sparkling – and increasing capacity to 400 million litres per year.
Sustainability is important to us and we believe every business has a duty of care to minimise its impact on the environment. The Lanchester Group has invested over £8million in renewable energy and heat generation and our facility is predominantly powered by renewable wind energy, generated by our three on-site wind turbines. We are continuing this ethos in our new Greencroft Two facility which will also use power from our wind turbines as well as 1,000,000 Watts of solar panels on its south-facing roof.
