NEW YORK, June 12, 2023 – Vino Vault, the country’s fastest-growing fine wine storage, logistics, and advisory provider, announced today that the company had acquired Western Carriers’ collector business.
Located less than 10 miles from New York City, Western Carriers is one of the most well-known and respected providers of secure, climate-controlled storage and transportation services to private collectors, auction houses, and retailers in the nation. The company also has a robust wine cellar transportation business offering U.S. collectors a professional, secure, and reliable temperature-controlled option for moving fine wine by the bottle or collection.
“The acquisition of the Western Carriers collector division is a transformative event for our company,” commented Jeff Anthony, CEO of Vino Vault. “We are also very pleased to have acquired Western’s highly capable wine cellar transportation company, allowing us to offer even more enhanced services to our customers.”
Marc Cohen, Executive Vice President of Western, added, “As a large logistics provider to the commercial wine and spirits industry, we made a strategic decision to entrust our highly specialized private collector business to an organization that could take it to the next level. We were excited by Jeff’s vision, and we have total confidence in the Vino Vault team to take great care of our valued customers.”
Western Carriers’ clients will have access to additional amenities, including expert inventory management, collection analysis, and turnkey auction advisory services as new Vino Vault clients. And existing Vino Vault customers can now take advantage of the company’s newly increased, temperature-controlled transportation options while maintaining the personal service they’ve come to expect.
“Adding Western Carriers’ collector business to the Vino Vault family will allow us to play a clear leadership role in one of the most important markets in the U.S.,” said Anthony. “The addition of such a highly regarded transportation component rounds out our value proposition of storage – logistics – advisory, creating a one-stop shop for the collector community.”
