Our Storage Environment

Temperature

Wine is a sensitive creature, somewhat like Goldilocks.  If the temperature is too cold, maturation can be stunted.  Too hot, and the wine can age prematurely. Too variable, your wine will be in utter shock.  That’s why our cellar is set between 12°C – 13°C – the desired range for storing wine.

Humidity

Our clients have diverse wine collections and many premium wines have cork closures. By keeping our humidity between 60% to 70%, our conditions will be just right to keep corks from drying out, but not wet enough to cause damp.

 

Vibration

We carefully selected a free-standing building with a solid concrete floor as the foundation of our custom fit out.  We’re close enough to main roads for ease of access, and a perfect distance from the train tracks to avoid any unnecessary shake, rattle and roll.

Light

Our main lights are automatic, so they are only on when you are in the Wine Storage Room tending to your collection. All private cellars are naturally dark with ventilation to reduce any chance of damp or musty smells.  Of course, we do have emergency lighting for your personal safety, but it’s nothing that will impact the quality of your collection.

Security

To keep your investment safe, our Wine Storage Room is fitted with state-of-the-art security.  Our secure entry requires you to have both your individual fob and PIN to enter the main building and then the cellar. Our CCTV systems are in the cellar and around the entire building.  24/7 monitoring and infrared detectors provide that extra peace of mind that your wine is safe with us.

 

Redundancy

Our climate-controlled conditions are perfect for long term wine storage. Our system has 100% redundancy as we use two refrigeration units. If there is ever a problem with one refrigeration unit, the other will take the load.  This means that our system will continue to operate even during periods of regular maintenance.

Energy Reliability

Problem with the mains power supply?  Not for us.  We’re wired so that a three-phase generator can be plugged in should the need arise.
