Vino Vault acquires Western Carriers’ collector business

June 22, 2023
New York-based business provides temperature-controlled storage and transportation services to private collectors, auction houses, and retailers.

Vino Vault, a wine storage, logistics, and advisory firm, recently acquired the collector business of Western Carriers, a provider of temperature-controlled storage and transportation services to private collectors, auction houses, and retailers.

The company, located just outside New York City, 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,” Jeff Anthony, CEO of Vino Vault, said in a news release. “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.”

Added Marc Cohen, Western executive vice president: “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, the companies said. And existing Vino Vault customers now can take advantage of the company’s newly increased, temperature-controlled transportation options while maintaining the personal service they 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.,” Anthony said. “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.”
