The majority of all our wines are cellared in London City Bond’s specialist fine wine site at Dinton Woods, Salisbury. The balance is stored in Bordeaux City Bond, Pool Logistcs in Beaune, and a few cases at Rivervalley Wine Cellars in New York State.
The LCB Dinton site consists of 15 vaults, excavated 80 years ago, all perfectly designed to be vibration and UV light free and benefit from the ideal conditions of correct humidity and temperature for wine maturation. The British Government originally developed the site for security purposes precisely for its remote, heavily wooded and well protected location. Each bunker has very thick reinforced concrete walls and is surrounded with a 3 metre high perimeter fence, coupled with 24 hour CCTV and manned guards.
We store in one of these bunkers, giving us full control over our stock and client reserves. Whilst other sites, like LCB Tilbury, LCB Barking, Octavian, EHD or Locke King Vaults may offer good storage conditions, client stock is usually spread across several chambers rather than in one dedicated location.
The annual charge is £12.50 per 12x75 (or £6.25 per 6x75cl). Should you wish to store your wine collection at our Dinton Woods facility please get in touch for a quote.
