5 Wooden Wine Box Traits and Characteristics
When choosing packaging for wine, there are many possible options, but wooden wine boxes are a top choice for many reasons. Whether the packaging is for a major wine company, or an amateur wine making operation, the versatility wooden wine boxes have will provide ample options for any packaging needs.
The old adage says not to judge a book by its cover, however, it’s difficult not to judge a wine by its packaging. There is something so delightful about a nicely packaged bottle of wine. So delightful, in fact, that sometimes it really doesn’t matter what the wine tastes like at all.
People undeniably love the look of a natural wood. Wooden wine boxes are considered beautiful without even really having to try. Even damaged, old looking wood provides the packaging with a ‘rustic’ look, while more perfect or newer wood provides a more crisp, modern look. Wood is a popular material, used to create aesthetically pleasing decorations, and that popularity is strong too when it comes to wine packaging.
To further increase the aesthetic of the box, customized stains can be added to the wood for a desired effect, and decorative baubles, ropes, and other items can be added to the outside for a more creative look.
On a practical level, wooden wine boxes are durable. There are features that can be included which hold the bottles still to keep them from moving around in the box and hitting each other, if there are more than one. These boxes will not fall apart, and can handle the weight of one or more bottles of wine without falling apart or losing integrity, unlike other types of packaging that could be used, like cardboard.
For the most part, wooden wine boxes can withstand being handled a little more roughly, and will normally protect the wine bottles from breaking. Of course, there is still a level of fragility that must be respected, however there is more room for error with a wooden wine box than that of another material.
3. Environmentally sustainable
Wooden wine boxes are good for the environment for a few different reasons. One is that wood is a naturally sourced, renewable resource. The other is that wooden wine boxes are very easy to reuse or recycle once they have fulfilled their original purpose.
By choosing wooden wine boxes, not only is the issue of avoiding synthetic materials solved, but the issue of creating waste is also solved. The box can be used for more wine transportation and packaging purposes, or as a box for other items. Alternatively, the box can be broken down and used for other purposes like firewood, or creating more wooden items.
Amazingly, even though they are one of the most aesthetically pleasing packaging options, as well as one of the most durable, wooden wine boxes are also a very affordable option. The price is competitive with that of other packaging options, and there are many opportunities for finding even cheaper wooden wine packaging if it is a second-hand box. For all the benefits they provide, wooden wine boxes are a steal.
Wooden wine boxes are also highly customizable. Any logo or words can be engraved, stamped, or burned into the box itself, which makes it one of the longer-lasting options. Other types of packaging use labels which will become torn, faded, or ruined over time.
They may also become ruined during shipping or transit of the item. However, with wooden wine boxes, because the label is stained or engraved into the box itself, there is no fear of the branding or customization becoming ruined.
