Ethics on Top — Why Destiny Bay bottles are now capsule-free
At Destiny Bay we spare no expense in creating our world renowned Cabernet blend wines. Sustainability is central to our grape growing and winemaking practices. We constantly examine what is essential to produce a great wine and how we can change those practices to reduce our impact on the environment. Because of the ethical issues surrounding tin mining, we can no longer defend the use of a capsule that is not essential to bottling, enclosing or identifying our wine. The finished look is nice, but ethical responsibility and protecting the planet are more important.
Therefore, effective 1 January 2022 we will no longer place tin capsules on any of our current or future releases.
