5.0 / 5.012 ReviewsAmber offers excellent protection from light damageBoth Wine and Beer are readily damaged by light, especially sunlight; even a few minutes of exposure is enough to damage wine and beer. A number of well-researched reports conclude that Amber (brown) is the only glass color that offers excellent protection from from light damage. Clear and Blue offer almost no protection from high-intensity light (UV light), and Green offers only minimal protection from high-intensity light._x000D__x000D_While more unfortunately expensive than green bottles, amber bottles are a worthwhile investment.November 22, 2010June 7, 2011slick bottlethese are great for sweet white or gold wines. take a cork real nice.October 8, 2012Nice bottle that protects your wine and beerGood to have some._x000D_The Ultra Violet from sunlight can damage wine, so store it in a dark place, like a climate controlled cellar.

They should not ever be used with a carbonated beverage. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
