Wine storage

I reviewed provisioning threads and there is discussion about what wine - mostly cheap wine and cheap rum. If you're carrying a supply of the good stuff, how do you store it? Are there limits to how much you can carry into foreign ports?

We normally just keep out hard liquor in a cool place and in the bottles. I saw one boat that poured all their rum into a 5 gallon gerry can. Took up less space. Thought that was a good idea.

Good stuff may not travel all that well.

There are limits but they tend to vary from country to country.

For example, coming into Canada

Quote:
Visitors Duty-Free Allowance for Alcohol

If you are a a visitor to Canada, you are allowed to bring a small quantity of alcohol (wine, liquor, beer or coolers) into the country without having to pay duty or taxes as long as:
  • the alcohol accompanies you
  • you meet the minimum legal drinking age for the province or territory at which you enter Canada.
You may bring in one of
  • 1.5 litres (50.7 US ounces) of wine, including wine coolers over 0.5 percent alcohol, or
  • 1.14 litres (38.5 US ounces) of liquor, or
  • a total of 1.14 litres (38.5 US ounces) of wine and liquor, or
  • 24 x 355 millilitre (12 ounce) cans or bottles of beer or ale, including beer coolers over 0.5 percent alcohol (a maximum of 8.5 litres or 287.4 US ounces).

Bringing More Than the Duty-Free Allowance of Alcohol Into Canada

Except in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, if you are a visitor to Canada you may bring in more than the personal allowances of liquor listed above as long as you pay customs and province / territory assessments. The amounts you are allowed to bring into Canada are also limited by the province or territory in which you enter Canada. For details on specific amounts and rates, contact the liquor control authority for the appropriate province or territory before you come to Canada.
They do not tend to come aboard and check, but ....

Obviously you should store wine in a cool place - bilge - sometimes the wet locker - foc'sl - anywhere it can be bubble, towel or styro wrapped that does not interfere with engine heat, steering cables, electrical wires, etc.

Broken glass on a boat sucks!

The most unsettling factor will be the pitch and roll of a sailboat even at anchor!

Remember, wine should be experienced - savored - and shared.

For those special moments don't pack it away so tightly that you can't grab it when warranted!

I enjoy good wine almost as much as anyone, but I tend to not drink it on the boat very much. Of all the beverages, wine tends to dehydrate me the most, something that can easily sneak up on you on the water. (ie, headache!) Also, most all wines will have varying degrees of sediment, that should normally stick to the dependent portion of the bottle when racked. A boat's motion will keep the sediment in solution, and quite possibly affect the quality of the drink. Many mass produced wines (some excellent) are filtered and don't have this issue. I make a lot of my own, and they don't travel well.

Mostly my personal experience and opinion, FWIW.

Just buy chateau de cardboard. The boxed wines, especially Chilean, are OK. The bladder can be used for floatation.

You do not have drink the whole thing once it is opened either.
