More about today’s guest
Revino was founded to revive the refillable glass bottle ecosystem for beverage producers and consumers. Co-founders Keenan O’Hern and Adam Rack saw the need for breakthrough change in the packaging options available to the Willamette Valleys’ world-renowned wine producers. Despite the sustainability efforts taking place in our local vineyards and wineries, packaging remains one of the least controllable and most emissions-heavy contributors to a wineries process. Their dedication to sustainability goes beyond just recycling glass bottles. Revino bottles are a part of a wider closed loop system that keeps bottles in circulation, supporting the wine industry’s drive towards lower emissions and a more circular and sustainable model.
