Cold weather could threaten Seattle wine thieves’ haul

Management at Sodo’s Esquin Wine & Spirits have a message for the people who made off with more than $600,000 worth of high-end wine last week: There’s a good reason wine lovers pay for temperature-controlled storage lockers.

“What the thieves may not know,” Esquin spokesman Dan Miller said in a statement today, “is that with these cold temperatures we’re seeing in the region, if they haven’t properly stored the wine they stole, it could quickly become worthless, particularly if the wine freezes, making their whole criminal operation all for” naught.

Esquin hopes to get the wine back, hopefully in the same condition it was in when it was stolen.

Wine experts say wine should be stored in the dark, at around 55 degrees. Just as high temperatures are harmful to wine, subfreezing temperatures — like the ones the Seattle area has seen all week — are also damaging.

While the effect of temperature on wine depends on a number of factors, Wine Enthusiast magazine’s Managing Editor Joe Czerwinski said in an email that, typically, “Wine freezes around 23 to 25 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the alcohol content. Once frozen the wine will expand and often push the cork out therefore breaking the seal and spoiling the wine.”

Police have arrested one suspect and are seeking a second. The stolen wine — more than 200 cases valued at $648,000 — remains missing, police said today.
