These are five pillars for moving wine cellars.

Pack wine appropriately

Provide appropriate level of cushioning to avoid breakage. Label the box clearly with warnings like “This Side Up” and “Fragile”.

Place in suitable temperatures

The older the wine, the more sensitive it becomes to fluctuations in temperature. 55 Degrees Fahrenheit is optimal temperature for the wine. Therefore the best time to move wine is spring and fall, when winter freezes and summer heat is not a concern.

Avoid Bottle Shock

Bottle shock is the loss of flavour that occurs due to bottle being opened right after a jostle or a shake. To avoid this, it is suitable to open the wine after seven days of being in transit.

Keep a check with local authorities

In some countries there are rules and laws to the limit the alcohol that can be transported at a time. Therefore, be wary.

Cover Yourself

Large collections of wines should be insured so that loss can be recovered in case of any mishap or accident.
