Moving Small Collection in Summer Heat

freshlycured | Jul 30, 2013 06:14 AM

After visiting Napa last summer, I started a small wine collection. I've been storing 25 bottles or so in a wine fridge and am moving from the Northeast to Florida in a couple of weeks. My plan is to pack them into a cooler and take them in the car with us. How concerned do I need to be with the changes in temperature? We'll be taking about 6 days to get to our destination and plan on taking the cooler into the hotels with us. Do I need to keep the cooler iced down each day? If they live at around room temp for a few weeks (until I actually move into then new house) will they be OK?

Any advice would be most appreciated. Thanks.
