      It is important to package your wine products correctly to avoid shipping accidents. Shipping takes a long time and has the potential to harm the wine bottles if they are not properly packaged.

      1. The most important thing is to get a box with dividers. You can buy these boxes that are especially designed to hold wine bottles. You can also usually get used boxes from liquor stores.

      2. Make sure the bottles are tightly corked using a wine cork cage. Wrap each bottle in bubble wrap or paper. Tape the ends so that it is secure. After placing the bottles in the dividers, fill the empty spaces with bubble wrap or packing peanuts.

      3. Close the box and tape it securely with several layers of packing tape. Reinforce the bottom box with tape, too. Clearly label the box FRAGILE.

      Aren’t there certain specifications, too, with the conditions wine is shipped in? You don’t want it to get too hot or too cold.

      It is very important that the wine stay at a certain temperature while shipping. This will be hard to do because usually the person packing the wine is not the one doing the physical shipment. Many companies offer climate control vehicles, though, so make sure you opt for one of those.

      Ideally, the wine should stay as cool as possible during shipment. To prevent damage, the wine should be kept at least at 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Otherwise, it could be damaged.

      How big of a wine box should I get? I am just wondering if I can fill them to the top with wine bottles to ship as many as possible.

      That is actually something you donít want to do. Filling a wine box up all the way to ship is not a good idea because the box can become too heavy. You do not want the person handling the box to not be able to lift it. If he or she does try to lift it, it may become too hard to handle. This is the perfect set up for an accident.

      Instead, only pack about a half or a quarter of the box full of wine bottles. Put packing peanuts, paper, Styrofoam and bubble wrap in all of the empty spaces so that the wine bottles cannot move and crash into each other. This will ensure that the box is light enough for a handler to lift.
