HEALDSBURG, Calif., April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Truett-Hurst, Inc. (NASDAQ: THST), a recognized  leader of innovative super-premium, ultra-premium and luxury wine, today announced it completed a general supply agreement with Ecologic Brands, Inc.

Building upon its growth strategy, Truett-Hurst's three-year supply agreement (with a potential two year extension) with Ecologic demonstrates the progress the company has made in developing its downstream manufacturing supply channels over the past year.  Ecologic's 60,000 square foot facility in Manteca, California will enable the company to meet the increased demand for PaperBoy wine while providing greater management and transportation efficiencies.  PaperBoy recyclable wine bottles are made from compressed recycled cardboard formed into the shape of a standard Bordeaux wine bottle, are 85% lighter than traditional glass bottles and filled with appellation–based, super-premium wines sourced from the Mendocino and Paso Robles growing regions.  PaperBoy is available in 45 states and has two offerings: a 2012 Paso Robles Red Blend (MSRP $14.99) and a 2012 Mendocino Chardonnay (MSRP $14.99).

Phillip L. Hurst, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Truett-Hurst, Inc., commented, "We are enthusiastic about the early sales and consumer pull for our PaperBoy brand.  We have also been impressed with Ecologic's manufacturing approach and this agreement illustrates our confidence in their product and commitment to producing packaging produced locally.  We believe this is an important step in solidifying the future for PaperBoy wine and we're excited to get this deal done with Ecologic."  

Ecologic Brands CEO and Founder Julie Corbett commented, "We are excited about partnering with Truett-Hurst in growing the wine category through innovation.  This is an important milestone that will drive Ecologic's mission of creating jobs and building a sustainable future with eco-friendly packaging designed and manufactured in California."
