Storage & Provenance
Nebuchadnezzar Wines are very proud to be associated with Vinotheque wine cellars. Provenance is a major factor to the life and market value of fine wine and so all of our wines are stored at Vinotheque.
The 19th century grade II listed industrial building, housing the Vinothèque wine cellars in Burton-upon-Trent, displays all the expected characteristics of the Victorian period in which it was built.
Its metre-thick, red brick walls ensure a constant and steady temperature, cool enough to ensure the precious property within remains unaffected by the fluctuating weather patterns that affect the outside world. And its four perfectly formed floors couldn’t have been designed better. The ground floor is in possession of those majestically grand columns and ceilings that are the hallmarks of the period’s industrial architecture and are now ideally suited to the storage of faster moving stocks of wines. The upper three floors are more intimate, more compact, and hence ideal for the cellaring of fine wines during maturation and those that require long-term storage.
The temperature and humidity within Vinothèque are close to ideal. Insulation, air flow and natural light shuttering make certain that wines develop in a carefully controlled atmosphere. Constant monitoring ensures that all wines from inexpensive table wines to top Château Claret are kept and matured in ideal conditions. Private investors or trade customers can therefore be assured that their investment is secure.
Equally important, the warehouse is physically secure and protected by a state of the art intruder alarm system. The heavy oak doors and significant ironmongery from yesteryear have been boosted by state-of-the-art CCTV cameras that monitor every angle and corner of the building, inside and out, extensively. A security company – the same firm that protects the major banks and high value businesses elsewhere in the area – has 24/7 security patrols, and there are, of course, all the usual security checks and monitors on all staff and visitors to and from the site
