Oeno Vaults Aims To Solve Some Of The Most Challenging Issues With Direct-To-Consumer Wine Shipments
SANTA ROSA, Calif., April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "Consumers no longer need to worry about how heat will affect their precious wine order from their favorite winery, nor will they have to rely on others to coordinate and sign for their shipments in the instance they're not home when an attempted delivery is made. Oeno Vaults will pick up their customers' wine purchases from wineries in the Napa Valley and Sonoma County using temperature controlled vehicles and deliver it back to their state-of-the-art cellaring facility. Once each bottle has been catalogued and inventoried, the wine will be securely stored in private, climate controlled wine vaults. From there, the customer decides the next step – cellar it or ship it economically at a time and location most convenient for the customer!"
Oeno Vaults is a new service for wine consumers who make purchases directly from wineries. They are an innovative, comprehensive wine cellaring solution offering: winery and tasting room pick ups, secure wine storage, and shipping solutions. Regardless of economic standing, life is complicated, receiving precious wine shipments can sometimes be even more complicated – and it shouldn't be. Many fanatics of rare, cult wines spend years on waiting lists for the opportunity to make that first purchase of cabernet or pinot noir. Once a purchase is made, transit from the winery to the customer is where the greater percentage of damage to wine can occur. Fluctuations in temperature can lead to slightly muted aromas, loss of fruit character, varied differences in mouth-feel, and texture. In short, the wine the customer receives may not be the wine they purchased.
At Oeno Vaults, they pick up consumer wine purchases from wineries in the Napa Valley and Sonoma County in temperature controlled vehicles or they can receive shipments on the consumers' behalf from wineries all over the world. Once the wine has been received at their state of the art temperature and humidity controlled facility, each bottle is catalogued, barcoded and photographed then locked away in private, environmentally controlled and alarmed vaults. From a computer or mobile device, Oeno Vaults customers have full visibility into their cellar inventory with the ability to monitor all bottle movement and activity, as well as check real time temperature and humidity. Then at a time that's convenient for the customer, not the winery, he or she can select a bottle or several cases of wine to ship anywhere in the country.
