Going to wine country? Safely ship wines to Sentry Wine Vault!

March 29, 2012

Have you ever looked out the window of an airplane to see luggage on the tarmac? It’s a common sight if you are a traveler, to see some bags falling off the luggage cart or bags being tossed by baggage handlers. One thing that’s not common knowledge to  travelers is that the pressure and the temperature under the plane (in a luggage compartment) will fluctuate greatly during a flight. You have probably heard the term Pressurized Cabin before just as your ears have probably “Popped” on a flight, but did you know that only some luggage compartments are pressurized for things like traveling pets?

If you frequent the wine country here in California or in other parts of the world, have your wines sent safely to Sentry Wine Vault instead of packing them in your luggage.

Sentry will accept client’s deliveries at no charge and store wines in the temperature and humidity controlled vault untill they are requested, at which time they can be picked-up or delivered within San Diego County.

The wine vault is kept at the proper wine storage conditions for aging fine wines. Cases and bottles are stored on their sides and have the option to be inventoried by Sentry Staff. Clients will never have to wonder what they have in storage again!!

           Will the pressure pull on your cork as the plane goes up and down?

Will the fluctuations in temperature affect your wine’s flavor?

Stop worrying about the safety of your fragile wine collection. Ship your wines to Sentry Wine Vault using a company that specialises in temperature controlled shipping.
