What to Know

Continuous vibration can stir up sediment and hinder the natural development of wine.  Urban vibrations from tractor trailers, traffic and subways can do this. Machine vibrations from generators and cooling units can also affect the wine aging process. Constant vibrations also threaten to break down or shatter fragile glass bottles containing prized old vintages.
