Building

Our building was designed and engineered from the ground up for professional wine storage. Perimeter wall insulation exceeds R20 to ensure perfect temperature stability for your wine. Cellar lighting is low-voltage, LED throughout and programmed to turn off when the facility is vacant. Superior fire protection is provided with a pre-action sprinkler system, a type utilized in museums to prevent accidental discharge. The building itself is partially below grade and vibration-free. There is private parking, and a secure loading area.

Climate

We utilize an engineered, multi-zoned approach to climate management. Six commercial-grade refrigeration units spaced throughout the facility operate independently to maintain a constant 13.0 (±0.3) ℃ in each zone, while providing excellent redundancy. Humidification is supplied with an ultrasonic fogging system, and maintained between 65-75% RH year-round. An advanced air handling system provides dehumidification and fresh air ventilation, and keeps the air inside our cellar homogenous. All climate controls are administered via Direct Digital Control (DDC) and are monitored daily by a third-party. Cellar conditions are backed up indefinitely for historical reference.

Security

We employ a multi-layered, 24 hour monitored security system with biometric (fingerprint) access, ensuring only clients can gain access to the cellar. Lockers and case storage rooms have been constructed in such a manner that no wine is visible inside our facility. Lockers are individually alarmed, and only you have the key to its deadbolt lock. Infrared CCTV cameras, glass break detectors and motion sensors are also employed throughout the facility. We are located less than 10 blocks from both the nearest police station and fire hall.

We offer two types of storage plans: Private Lockers and Case Storage.

Private lockers are perfect for those who wish to manage their own wine collection. You have sole access to your own locker inside our private facility, and can visit without an appointment 24/7/365. Lockers are available in capacities of 8-1300 cases, and include complementary custom racking.

Case Storage is a full-service plan, and is best suited for those who do not require frequent access to their wine, or have short-term storage needs due to a move or relocation. We manage and store your cases for you in our bulk case room. This plan is by appointment only and you must call first to make arrangements to pick up, drop off, or have us transport your wine.

Insurance

Wine is not automatically insured at 13C. Many clients already insure their wine collection as part of their homeowner’s policy. If insurance is required, we offer full coverage at a rate of $0.55 per $100 of declared value.
