Underground storage in a thick-walled (vibration-free) brick building by the Hudson River keeps relative humidity at around 70 % and temperatures are controlled at 55 deg F. Charges are based on either open storage, private 18-, 36- or 72-case lockers, and custom-built lockers holding between 100 and 1,000 cases. Open storage costs $2.80 a case (for up to 99 cases) a month while private lockers come in at $70, $130 and $225 a month respectively, so it ain't cheap. On the other hand, CWS say they have 'tasting areas and staging tables so our clients can enjoy the experience as a hobby or connoisseur. There's plenty of room to enjoy working on their collection or sharing a glass with another client or my staff. Most of my staff is formally educated in wine fundamentals' - all of which makes it sound like one big party. There's also a sophisticated online system, including maturity advice.

The storage facilities most obviously attuned to the private collector in an old cold war bunker so that they can claim these cellars in rural Connecticut 'were originally built to withstand an indirect hit from a nuclear warhead' which is certainly a unique feature, along with its 12-ton bank vault door. Temperature is the standard 55 deg F and relative humidity 70 % and, unusually in the US, the fees, which are charged per case per month rather than in often awkward specific volumes, include insurance against theft and breakage.

The domain name suggests a certain primacy and this Illinois outfit has been going for 15 years - a long time in US wine trade history. It offers drive-in access to the wine lockers with stiff security checks en route. Temperature is 55 deg F and relative humidity 60-70 %. Rates are per lot, generally increasing in eight-case increments, per year with per case equivalents declining slightly with bigger volumes.

$1.60 per case with a 40 case minimum

A bit like Octavian in the UK they have many advantages but one serious disadvantage: monthly charges (payable every six months) are levied assuming a minimum of 40 cases. Western Carriers are the professionals just outside New York City and in northern California who store millions of cases of wine for the wine business and the major auction houses. They also specialise in moving wine collections within the US for those who are relocating their cellars. They offer on-line access to inventories 24/7 but no valuation or current maturity dates. They have their own sophisticated tracking software, online access for private customers, a temperature maintained at 56 deg F and relative humidity about 65 %. Sotheby's Wine Department operates on site within the facility.
