PRLog - Feb. 12, 2013 - Leading logistics provider to the global beverage market JF Hillebrand has recently managed the transportation of a highly-valuable consignment of one of Australia’s most prestigious wines - Penfolds Grange.

The Penfolds Collection is thought to be the finest set of Penfolds Grange wine ever to be sold, and includes a full collection of authenticated bottles spanning six decades, from the very first vintage of 1951 through to current vintage of 2006. The Collection also includes thirteen magnum cases, and much more besides.

JF Hillebrand UK Operations Director Dan Morris said: “Being entrusted with the movement of such a valuable and prestigious collection of wines to London was a considerable logistics challenge – one involving a meticulous operation and care and attention.

“We needed to ensure the wine was carefully protected for the long journey, and also that no temperature damage would occur during the transportation operation.”

Prior to departure, the bottles were carefully secured in Styrofoam boxes and were insulated to protect against potentially damaging temperature fluctuations.

JF Hillebrand collected the wine from Treasury Wine Estates, owners of the Penfolds brand, on 24th January, and then securely re-packaged the collection for air-freight to London Heathrow airport.

On arrival in London the collection was carefully and securely transported by two drivers, for added security, to a warehouse in nearby west London, where the wines were finally re-packaged before being delivered to Hedonism Wines – a fine wine boutique in London’s Mayfair – on 29th January.

Hedonism Wines expect the collection to fetch around £1.2million/AU $1.8million when it goes on sale in February.



Ends.
