Methods of Bulk Transport
The American Vineyard Foundation tracked road transportation of bottled wine within the USA moving from California to the East Coast tracking wine over a 14 day trip. The wine, which was shipped during summer months in a non-refrigerated truck, was exposed to ambient temperatures as high as 43°C. As would be expected the temperatures fluctuated depending on time of day and direction of sun. Exposure temperatures were regularly above 24°C.
