A decadent wine deserves proper preparation and care: the better for you and your guests to enjoy it at your next holiday meal, special occasion, or family get-together. But if you don’t know how to store your wine to achieve optimum results, you’ll miss out on some of the hidden flavors and aromas that are intended to make each bottle unique.
Extra Attic Self-Storage in Morrisville, North Carolina, has the solution to your storage conundrum. Within our state-of-the-art facility, we have a number of wine storage options and an ideal environment for allowing wines to develop over time and reach their full flavor potential. That way, you know that not only is the integrity of your beverage being protected, but that it’s in a safe place until you are ready to enjoy it.
Our storage facilities are monitored in order to maintain a comfortable temperature of 55 to 58º F, as well as humidity levels between 50 and 70%. Why does that matter? When exposed to direct sunlight, warmer temperatures, or varying moisture levels for long periods, wine is subject to spoiling or losing its original appeal. Because wine is made up of a complex combination of acids and other chemical compounds, it’s subject to react when faced with outside influencers, and an increase in temperature also increases the rate of chemical reaction.
Your most valuable bottles of wine are protected by entrance security measures, including exclusive keypad access available only to customers and trusted staff members. Our facility also sports motion-detection cameras for additional monitoring purposes, so in the rare case that something does happen on our watch, we can quickly trace the source of the problem and rectify any resulting issues.
In the event of a power outage or system complication, we have a 24kW back-up generator on hand to ensure that your wines don’t suffer a sudden change in temperature or lapse in security. Your property is important to us, and to ensure the wine meets every one of your expectations the moment it hits the glass, we know it’s imperative to keep it stored safely and properly in the correct temperature range.
These components of our facility, among many others included on property, all contribute to keeping your wine safe and sound until you’re ready to pull out the cork. If you still have questions, or want to take a look at our storage operations, feel free to give us a call or email, or you’re welcome to stop by any of our locations.
