An entertainer’s dream would be to be able to head into their climate controlled wine cellar and bring out that perfectly aged bottle of wine that gets “Oohs,” “Ahs” and nods of approval from their guests, but, alas, most of us do not have space for a wine cellar, let alone the time and money to construct one. For those of us that purchase wine for short-term storage, lack of storage is not that much of an issue, but for serious wine connoisseurs and collectors who purchase wines and store them long-term (more than just a few months), having the proper storage is essential for the wine to reach its full potential. But now comes the important question: what do you consider when choosing a wine storage provider? Assuming you don’t have a wine cellar, that is.
There are a lot of things to consider when choosing the best wine storage, with the essential question being, “Did the wine storage provider include wine storage as an afterthought, or were its wine storage facilities built for the exact purpose of effectively storing wine?”. Many self-storage companies may add wine storage to their offerings after the fact in order to increase their customer base, but though this may give you the space you need, that is about it; and any wine connoisseur will tell you that space is the least of your worries when storing wine for optimum efficacy. Ultimately, the best wine storage provider will be one that:
- constructed wine storage for the purpose of wine storage;
- offers a variety of storage sizes;
- is easy to access;
- is secure;
- has a good reputation; and
- offers climate control.
