XERT (Xpeditr Emergency Response Team) was formed in 2012 after Superstorm Sandy barrelled through the North East claiming the many prized bottles. Wine was ruined not only at private homes but also storage facilities without adequate setup for the storm. As seen on Reuters.
Our team of 10 wine rescuers heads into the wake of the storm and extracts wine collections from their resting places.
