PRESERVE YOUR FINE WINE COLLECTION
At Fr8Yard, we understand the importance of proper wine storage for maintaining the quality and value of your collection. That’s why we’ve designed a state-of-the-art wine storage facility to provide the ideal environment for your prized bottles. Our premium wine storage vault service offers a variety of sizes to accommodate collections ranging from a few bottles to extensive cellars.
Optimal Storage Conditions
Our wine storage facility is specifically engineered to maintain the optimal conditions for preserving your fine wines. We provide the following features to ensure the best environment for your collection:
Consistent temperature control
Our climate-controlled environment ensures a consistent temperature of 55-58°F, the ideal range for wine preservation. By maintaining this stable temperature, we prevent fluctuations that can cause your wine to expand and contract, leading to premature aging or other quality issues.
Our storage vaults are designed to protect your collection from harmful UV light, which can damage wine quality by causing chemical reactions that alter the taste and aroma. Our facility uses specialized lighting and materials to shield your collection from UV exposure, ensuring your wine retains its original characteristics.
Air quality control
We take extra measures to maintain clean, fresh air within our wine storage facility. Our air filtration systems remove dust, pollen, and other contaminants, protecting your collection from potential damage and ensuring that your wine remains in pristine condition.
We maintain a relative humidity level of 60-70%, preventing cork deterioration and wine evaporation. Proper humidity levels are crucial in preserving the integrity of the cork, preventing it from drying out and allowing oxygen to enter the bottle. This controlled environment also helps to prevent mold and mildew growth, which can damage labels and affect wine quality.
Our facility is constructed to minimize vibrations, ensuring that your wine remains undisturbed during the aging process. Excessive vibrations can agitate the wine, disrupting the natural sedimentation process and affecting the wine’s overall quality. Our wine storage vaults are built with advanced materials and techniques to absorb and reduce vibrations from nearby sources.
At Fr8Yard, our commitment to providing optimal storage conditions guarantees that your fine wine collection is expertly preserved and protected. Contact us today to learn more about our specialized wine storage solutions.
