Wines must be handled and packaged with great care to avoid damage and spoilage during transportation.
Extreme temperatures, vibration, humidity and exposure to light can affect your wines delicate chemistry. Chipman offers specially designed boxes to pack bottles and glassware.
- Pack red and white wines upside down or on their side to keep corks wet, preventing oxidation or spoilage.
- Sparkling wines and Champagne should be packed upright.
- Opened bottles cannot be shipped.
- Allow the bottles to rest at your destination at least seven days for each day they are in transit. This will prevent loss of flavor caused by bottle shock from the wine shaking within the bottle as it is moved.
