Last week, Vine International handled its millionth case of wine since 2009 when it introduced unique case identifiers (UIDs). UIDs give every case stored in one of Vine’s facilities – London, Bordeaux and Hong Kong – a unique numerical code. These allow the simple validation of case identity and ownership, giving certainty in case tracking and location.

Every time a case of wine is received into a Vine warehouse, the case is issued with a UID before being condition checked and photographed.

Last week the UIDs became a seven-digit figure, indicating that 1 million unique cases of wine had travelled through the Vine system.

The wine that took this landmark trade was Burgundy’s Meo Camuzet, Vosne Romanee Cros Parantoux 2014.

Each year Vine and its clients undergo a stock take which is audited and certified by an independent auditor. The most recent audit by Venners – a stocktaking specialist – found that, “the standard of warehousing and storage is high and it appears that Vine is still setting the bar for which others may aim”.
