Re: Transporting Wine from NY to Southern Florida

Check out Vine Vault....they are located in Atlanta and Austin but ship refrigerated from all over. I have them ship my wine from Napa/Sonoma and it goes refrigerated door to door...I first heard of them when my Spottswoode shipment was delivered by them. Really a game changer for me.

Yes, this is the missing part of the puzzle. The temperature controlled wine shipments from the winery take the wine from the winery to a Fedex or ups distribution point....the delivery however is on a regular non refrigerated truck. Vine Vault is delivered refrigerated to your doorstep.

It is great news. However, I think Vine Vault currently only works with a couple of wineries. They need to be "discovered", not so much by the wineries like Spottswoode, but especially by the Napa shippers like Vinfillment, Bogega Shipping, Wine Country Shipping etc..
