Typically when I choose a bottle of wine it is based on its varietal, winery or, on occasion, a fantastic label I can’t pass up. But I haven’t noticed the particular weight differences between the glass bottles.
Apparently, some wine makers are using bottles with excess weight which isn’t as environmentally friendly compared to those bottles whose weights are much less. Plus the added weight is costly and those costs are passed onto the consumer.
