A Winelovers Guide to Moving Wine

Moving a Wine CollectionI love wine. It’s a girl’s best friend. Because friends and family know that I enjoy a nice glass now and then, I’m often given special bottles for holidays, birthdays and other occasions. Needless to say, I’m proud of my growing collection.

Give yourself plenty of time – and remember that you may not be able to drop everything to devote an entire day to packing, so it’s a good idea to attack it in chunks, between your other pre-move activities.
