Subterranean Wine (and Beer!) Storage
Seattle Wine Storage is located below street level and is heavily insulated. To further protect your wine investment, we installed state-of-the-art refrigeration equipment to ensure a constant 55º year-round temperature and a relative humidity level of 60%-75%. We currently have 2 separate compressors to keep your wines at a constant 55º.
We offer individually locked units – only you have the key. The entire facility is alarmed and monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A sprinkler system covers the entire facility. Access is limited to clients and their authorized agents.
The building is made of solid concrete, and there are no exterior walls, doors or windows that directly access the wine storage areas from the outside, so no ‘smash and grab’ break-in is possible. The entire exterior area is contained within a chain link fence topped with barbed wire.
Seattle Wine Storage is only minutes from downtown Seattle just off I-5. You can see our location on this map. Our loading dock is covered and hand trucks and dollies are provided. Ample parking is available in the loading area.
We are fully equipped to ship or receive palletized wine shipments from moving companies, auction houses, retailers and other volume shippers via refrigerated cross-country semi’s. We can forklift your wine safely off the back of their trucks and place it in our secured pallet storage area for you, no need to be here!
- Receiving wine shipments: Seattle Wine Storage will accept deliveries on your behalf, provided they are legal under current Washington State regulations. It is up to the client to determine in advance whether any shipment meets these regulations. Upon receipt, we will notify you via email and place your wine in our secured holding area. If we have access to your locker, we will place your wine in your locker at no charge. If we do not have access, we hold if for you for a nominal fee until you can come in and transfer to your locker.
- Cellar inventory and appraisals: Seattle Wine Storage can inventory and organize your cellar for you. In addition, we have extensive experience in valuing wine collections, whether for insurance purposes, possible resale, or estate or divorce proceedings. Please inquire about our hourly rate for these services.
- Cellar management: For most of our clients, we operate as a self-storage facility. You add and remove wine and update your collection as you desire. However, if you wish, we can manage the entire process for you, from picking up your wine, managing and valuing your inventory, pulling and packing wines you request, and even delivery if needed. These services can be provided a la carte or as part of a complete cellar management program. Please inquire about rates and services.
