Jamesport Vineyards has an interesting new way promote bottle recycling.

The New York Cork Report, headed up by Editor-in-chief Lenn Thompson, reports that the winery is offering free tastings and discounts based on how many bottles from Long Island wineries you bring back to the shop.

Here’s what you can get, according to a flyer posted on the winery’s Web site:

4 bottles = a free tasting
8 bottles = a free tasting and 5% off your purchase
12 bottles = a free glass of wine and 10% off
24 bottles = a free flight of wine and 15% off
36 or more bottles = a free flight of wine and 20% off

Discounts are per person, but if the bottles are from Jamesport, tastings are good for two.
