I think if the shipment is in styro, given that containers are big and full of other stuff, it's going to take a lot longer to reach ambient temperatures than the time it'll be sitting around in the coldest parts of the country. Possibly. But would you want your wine subjected to single-digit exter...

I never really thought about rail but if the wine is in a car, wouldn't it be moving through the cold areas rather than stopping overnight? So the exposure wouldn't be too bad, right?
