As people return to offices, receiving wine shipments at home has proven more challenging. When no one is home to sign for the package, wine stays on the delivery truck, which will try again another day. We all know temperature changes and vibrations can negatively affect precious bottles. If you’re in this predicament, consider a wine storage facility. Send your club shipments and the staff can unpack and add wine to your temperature-controlled locker. But the perks don’t stop there. Most offer intimate gathering spaces where you and your guests can pop open your bottles. Think Riedel stemware, leather couches, wifi, sound systems and big screen TVs. 

Cellar 55

With custom shelving, pick-up and delivery collection services within 30 miles, Cellar 55 represents the perfect solution for anyone in the Vancouver area. Beyond storage, they provide complimentary wine cellar relocation services and short-term rentals. An added bonus: the staff sommelier who can offer advice as well as answer any wine questions.
