Storage & Shipping
Crurated offers a professional temperature- and humidity-controlled warehouse in Burgundy with 24-hour, state-of-the-art security.
All wines are directly transferred from the domaines’ cellars to Crurated’s dedicated warehouse, where bottles are stored at an average temperature of 12C. No third parties are involved, so Crurated has complete control of the transportation and storage of the bottles.
All wines are fully insured from the moment they are picked up at the domaines until final delivery.
Crurated offers complimentary and unlimited storage for the Ambassador & Collector membership tiers. Connoisseur members receive complimentary storage for up to 500 bottles, and any additional wine can be stored for €3/bottle per year.
If you choose to cancel your membership with Crurated, you will have 30 days to arrange the delivery of your bottles. After 30 days, you will be automatically charged an advance rate of €3/bottle, per year for the storage of your wines.
Once your bottles arrive at Crurated’s warehouse, you can request to ship them and you will be provided with a quote. We support a number of EU and international destinations at competitive market rates. Delivery charges will vary based upon the quantity, value, and final destination of the shipment.
We ship to the countries within the EU, the UK, Switzerland, Norway, USA, Canada , Russia (St Petersburg and Moscow), Hong Kong, Macao, China (Shanghai), Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand. For international destinations, certain restrictions apply in terms of geographical areas & quantities.
If you wish to ship your wines to any of the supported destinations, please log in to your account and select the lots that you would like to ship.
If your desired shipping destination is currently not supported by Crurated, you are entitled to the free unlimited storage with Crurated in our top class bonded warehouse in Burgundy where your wines can age gracefully undisturbed. From there, you can either arrange your own transport working with us on customs solution or build your cellar with us to also later benefit from the Crurated marketplace.
– Working directly with wine producers is what characterises us on the market today, ensuring our members will always have access to fair prices for the rarest estates and bottles. Crurated allocations are generally labelled & processed to order by the domaines. To optimise costs, pickups are scheduled a few times a year and therefore some wines become available for transport to our warehouse 6-8 weeks after the sale closes.
– Our groundbreaking security & traceability through non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain technology is labour intensive. Our warehouse team individually inspects each bottle and affixes the Crurated label with a unique serial number. For each bottle, we mint the NFT from Crurated wallet on Polygon. When all the bottles of a lot have arrived in the warehouse (are serialized), we pack the mixed lots, and assign the lot to the customer by transferring the NFTs from the Crurated Polygon wallet to the customer’s Polygon Wallet.
– We do our best to estimate the bottles’ arrival to our warehouse when auctions launch and we are continuously striving to speed up our processes without any compromise to best practices for secure handling, storage and transport of fine wine.
