The machines are currently installed in eight supermarkets in France, but Dr. Vino seems to think the scheme will come stateside within a year. Which is great, from an eco-lifestyle standpoint. If the more – how do the French say? – prétentieux, glass-swirling, Whole Foods-patronizing wine snobs among us will apply a bring-your-own-container mindset to something as precious as our Viogniers and Pinot Noirs, it might just catch on with other packaging-intensive staples as well (Milk? Eggs? Those individually wrapped yogurt snacks?). Such a return to the commercial mores of a century ago could do a lot to reduce carbon footprints, and costs, across the board.
