environmental Stewards

Our subterranean location and limited access business model allow us to use less energy in a week than many storage facilities use in a day. The facility building is both LEED and ENERGY STAR certified.

We utilize a large, enclosed 3 bay drive-in loading dock. Here you can roll your wines to and from your car, shielded from inclement weather, without leaving the building.

Back to Back Bulk Storage

Behind this outstanding burgundy collection is a separately secured bulk storage area.

Main Locker Area

Different size lockers are available to meet your needs. We use wooden lockers because they are less efficient transmitters of ambient vibration. The design limits exposure to undesirable ultraviolet radiation.

Double Deep Custom Racking

Custom racking allows quick access to your collection, without the need to move boxes. Inventory, sorting, and perusal are all made easier.

The Annex

Customers with one to six cases can store their wines in the smaller lockers at a per case rate.

Custom Racking & Bulk Storage

Large collections can be accommodated in custom racking or bulk storage. We do not charge fees for withdrawals from bulk storage.
