  • Purchase insurance on your wine collection. Do not assume your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy will cover your collection while in storage. Ask your insurance agent for coverage or see our storage professional for a separate policy.

  • Do not share your security code, password, or personal information with anybody except those people you formally grant access to.

  • Utilize your wine storage space efficiently by making a plan.

  • Consider creating a precise inventory plan that allows you to locate specific wines quickly and easily.

  • Place more frequently accessed wine at or near the front.

  • Place heavier case goods on the bottom and stack lighter items as you go up.

  • Check your wine vault at least once a month.

  • Do not store any food items in your wine vault.

  • Unless your unit has a steel floor, consider storing your wine collection slightly off the slab to allow for ventilation.

  • Most wine cases are labeled “THIS SIDE UP” to assist you in keeping your corks wet.
