PHILADELPHIA, PA – Mont Tauch winery in Languedoc, beginning in mid 2011, will begin shipping its regular cuvee wines to the USA in a new eco-friendly wine bottle called the ECO L+G manufactured by O-I Europe. These bottles will significantly improve the overall impact on the environment. The new Lean+Green wine bottles are up to 33% lighter than their predecessors and made from 90% recycled glass. Yearly production of ECO bottles saves annually 87,000 Kwh hours, equivalent to using 8 million 11 watt energy efficient light bulbs for 1 hour. Palateur as the distributor for Mont Tauch will be among the first suppliers to introduce the ECO L+G bottles to the state of PA through the PLCB in their regular listed wine from Mont Tauch: Le Village Pinot Noir.  Benoît Villaret, wine marketing manager of O-I Europe, says: “The innovation that we offer not only respects the environment, but also enhances the heritage of the shapes which have come to characterize wines from different regions for many decades.
