If the wine is made in Napa, why did they have to go all the way to SC to put it in the ocean? Wasn’t the Pacific good enough for them?

I’m going to guess that the higher ambient temperature of the Gulfstream was thought to be kinder to the goods that the typically much colder Pacific.

Currents in both oceans move the same direction in each hemisphere. Clockwise in north of the equator counterclockwise in the south. So the currents passing the pacific coast are colder than those passing the Atlantic coast. I imagine that temp difference was part of the difference.
