I know a guy who was in Napa at New Year's and bought some wine to be shipped back to Florida. Three bottles in a styrofoam shipper. Each bottle had the cork protruding about an inch and a half out of the bottle (broke through the foil) and wine all over the styrofoam shipper.
Given the Polar Vortex that the U.S. just went through, I think it is pretty clear that this was a result of freezing.
