Seattle Wine Storage, Inc. has been dedicated to providing ideal conditions for storing your valuable wine collection since 1995. Storing your wine is our only focus. We currently are open Tuesday-Saturday from noon until 6 PM. We will be returning to 7 day a week access in early 2015.
For convenient access we offer box storage or racking lockers and walk-in cellars in a range of sizes, secured by your own lock and key. In addition, we offer economical pallet storage for handling larger quantities or for short term needs (e.g. while moving or remodeling your cellar).
In 2005, we doubled our storage space to over 15,000 square feet and have open lockers in a variety of sizes, but are once again approaching full capacity. We are excited to announce that we will be moving to a 20,000 square foot facility at the end of 2014. More details are discussed below.
Seattle Wine Storage is currently located in the bustling South Lake Union area, just minutes from all major freeways. We are geographically situated between I-5 and Hwy. 99 for quick access from the North or South, and between I-90 and Hwy. 520 for easy access for eastside wine storage customers. Our unique subterranean location provides a level of security and stability unmatched in the area. There are no exposed exterior walls, doors or windows above grade, and our building was seismically retrofitted in 2004.
We have recently signed a long term lease for a new 20,000 sf facility located at 9401 Aurora Avenue N., Lower Level, Building 1. We will be spending the summer of 2014 getting necessary permits lined up and installing new refrigeration, power and insulation. We expect to begin moving wine to the new facility (at no charge to clients!) in September, with the move taking up at least the rest of 2014. In the interim, our current facility will operate normally. This new facility will offer a number of advantages, including greatly improved parking with a covered loading dock, easy access off I-5, and more space for more lockers, all on one level. This means no stairs or freight elevators are needed!
Seattle Wine Storage has an 1,100 sq. ft. lounge area for client use. You can relax with friends over a glass of wine, browse through our library of wine books, use your laptop or our HP Touchscreen PC to access the internet via Wi-Fi, shoot a game of pool or watch a ball game or music DVD on our HD-TV, or select and play music via our new Meridian Sooloos media system, with 1,200 CDs available at a touch. The lounge can also be reserved for use by clients to host your own tastings.
Reserved parking is available at the loading dock level for SWS clients. Hand trucks and dollies are available to easily move your wine from your vehicle to your locker.
Even our lockers are designed with your convenience in mind. Unlike many wine storage facilities, there are no huge ladders needed to access lockers above your head. Locker doors easily lift off for full-width access to the locker instead of being hinged. Smaller lockers (up to 16 cases) hold all your wine on a single layer – no need to stack boxes on top of other boxes. Larger lockers have multiple shelves so that you don’t have to move all your boxes to get to the bottom layer of wine.
For the ultimate in convenience, we offer racking lockers in many sizes, from 25 cases to over 300 cases in flexible, easy to access racks.
