How to Transport Wine

Wine is the prima donna of alcoholic beverages.  If you treat it wrong, it’s going to sour.  And, unfortunately, there are quite a few ways you can treat a bottle of wine wrongly when moving it.

  • Too much sun – Exposure to sunlight can break down a wine into a tasteless mess.
  • Too much heat – Excessive heat can sour a wine.
  • Too much cold – Would you freeze a quality Merlot?  No.  So don’t do it in your moving truck.
  • Too much shaking – Excessively shaking wine can disturb its flavors.
  • Standing it up – Wine should be kept on its side to keep the cork moist.  Otherwise, air can penetrate the bottle.
