Large format refillable wine: Contemporarily referred to as “wine growlers” large format refillable wine is simply finished wine that bypasses the bottling line, going directly from the producer to the retailer contained in large vats or barrels and distributed to the consumers through into a reusable vessel. Although this practice has been illegal in the United States until recently (Oregon became the first state to allow refillable service with Oregon House bill 2443) the practice predates all modern industrial bottling and is still common practice throughout much of Europe.
