Burlap is used to protect our wine from the light.
At Woods Bay Winery, we realize the effect light can have on wine. Because of that, we enclose our wine in burlap to keep it free from the effects of damaging light.
Over 100 years ago, wine was packaged in burlap to protect it from the sunlight as well as to keep the bottles from breaking during transport.
Following many years of tradition, our bottles are encased with the burlap packaging which is done all by hand to ensure the quality remains in tact.
