Just read an article in Saturday’s Telegraph about ‘the march of the plastic bottles’ in wine making. We all know plastic bottles are not as good as glass for preserving drink. First, plastic is porous – glass isn’t. Second, plastic leaks out harmful chemicals into the wine – glass doesn’t do that.
Unless you want to buy lower grade – wines really cheap and drink them immediately please think twice before you buy ‘le vin plastique’. Certainly if you want to keep your wine for a couple of years or even longer plastic bottles are just not suitable. K
