6 Interesting Facts About Wine Crates and Boxes

Less than 5% of all wineries in the world craft wine crates

More than half of these wineries are in France. Most of the world's wine is stored and protected in cardboard boxes.

Wine crates are extremely durable, and can last for hundreds of years

We've seen wine crates from the 1800's that were still in fairly good condition. If maintained properly they will last for generations.

French wine crates are made with a species of pine that can't be found in the United States

The same applies for certain regions of Italy and Chile. We've looked everywhere, and it's just not in the US.

Wine crates naturally keep stored wine bottles 3-5 degrees cooler

This is ideal for wine investors looking to keep their wines in optimal conditions
