Rebel Wine Co, the joint venture between Trinchero Family Estates and Three Thieves wine firms, has signed a deal to put its Three Thieves Bandit wines on Delta Airlines flights.

Three Thieves Bandit wines will be the exclusive by-the-glass wine on all Delta international flights, California-based Rebel Wine Co announced this week.

"The innovative Tetra Pak containers for the Bandit wines were a major draw for Delta, bringing wine on board in more convenient, lighter weight, more easily stackable and storable packaging and giving an added "green" dimension to Delta's wine service," said Rebel Wine Co.

"For Delta, switching from bottles to Bandits will mean a 50% reduction in the weight of wine for both ground transport and onboard service, resulting in lower fuel costs and a smaller carbon footprint," it added.

The Bandit Chardonnay and Merlot wines will be served in Economy Class on all Delta and Northwest international flights outbound from the US.
