Who is Gonzo Vino
What if you could drink all the wine you wanted, and feel good about saving the planet at the same time. Welcome to Gonzo Vino.
We make fine cask wine, right here in Victoria, Australia from sustainably grown vineyards and pack them in fully recyclable casks for your enjoyment.
Gonzo Vino is the brain-child of sommelier Marcus Radny. Come on a journey into his tongue-in-cheek take on the earth-conscious Australian wine landscape.
So, why cask?
Cask wine offers a drinking experience that is unique. It's definitely got a bit of stick lately as a wine of low-quality, economic ally priced and generally from wine regions that do not feature on the tourist map.
Enter Gonzo Vino. We recongnised that the mechanics of the cask are extremely beneficial to the final consumer. It's a method that enhances the drinking experience of the wine for weeks after its been opened. When you pour yourself a glass of cask wine, there is no air ingress back into the cask, unlike with a traditional wine bottle. This means that the first glass all the way to the twentieth is fresh for up to 6 weeks from opening.
Aside from the drinking benefits, there are serious environmental upsides of utilising casks over bottles. From the production of glass vs. casks to shipping and storage and then to the final consumer, there is up to a 96% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from production, an 84% reduction in shipping costs and a 90% reduction in physical waste that wont end up in landfill, like glass.
