Go Rebo2Vino project

About the project

REBO2VINO is an innovative initiative aimed at exploring the implications and feasibility of a method to reuse glass bottles in the Spanish wine industry, following the principles of the circular economy. As part of this effort, market research will also be conducted, as well as the development and execution of an experimental trial, coupled with the launch of digital platforms.


The REBO2VINO project's primary aim is to study the feasibility and impact of reusing glass bottles in the Spanish wine industry, and it encompasses several detailed objectives:

  • Assess the scale and genuine possibility of implementing this method in Spain and understand the interest and stance of wineries regarding adopting reusable packaging.
  • Develop and test a standard reusable bottle prototype in Spain and endeavour to facilitate its potential recognition at the European level.
  • Identify and study the main challenges, limitations, and advantages of adopting this model in the Horeca sector.
  • Conceptualise and execute a pilot test of the bottle reuse system, including digital solutions, to trace its origin and determine its feasibility from the technical, financial, and environmental perspectives.
  • Develop a practical guide to procedures.
  • Create a straightforward calculation tool that advises wineries on the environmental benefits of reusing bottles based on their specific characteristics and conditions.
  • Develop a communication strategy to promote bottle reuse in the wine sector.
