We know the importance of storing wine in the perfect condition, that's why we offer the finest wine storage facilities in the UK treating every single bottle as if it was our own.

We entrust this integral part of our service to Octavian, the "world's number one in fine wine storage" who use a state-of-the-art wine storage facility - the Colerne Reserve.

Octavian has set the standard for fine wine storage by committing to maximise the value of your wine. We want to give you the reassurance that your fine wine is being stored in optimum conditions and whether it's a case or your full cellar, each bottle will be cared for in the same way. So much so that all wine in your client reserves is insured by Bordeaux Index to the full replacement value.

The site boasts high security for your fine wine, it's heavily insulated to control temperature and humidity within the warehouse and uses LED lighting to eliminate the risk of UV rays and heat generated by conventional lighting, every detail has been covered with bespoke machinery handling the wine to ensure that the product is minimally disrupted from vibration once it is in place.

At the facility, your stock will be checked by an assigned member of the Bordeaux Index team. Each and every case is checked in and out, logged and barcoded on receipt ensuring that each case is fully traceable, giving you the reassurance that your wine is in the best care possible. We also offer condition reports with photography of your wine, all of which is free of charge if you've purchased your wine through Bordeaux Index. For wine not bought from Bordeaux Index and not sold through LiveTrade a charge of £5 per case photographed will be applied for any product removed from storage within 12 months.
