    Each private wine deposit is defined
    and contained within a cellar box


    Lovers of wine need a reliable, extended
    cellar for their treasured bottles when
    the constraints of suitable space, moving
    home, busines travel or postings abroad
    demand it.

    Generation Game


    A gift of fine wine can be a beacon of
    expression from one generation to the
    next and we provide a nursery cellar
    scheme for parents, grandparents and
    godparents to lay down wine for their
    children’s future. Cases of wine can be
    held in trust with Smith & Taylor until
    a young beneficiary comes of age.

    Identity and Security


    Following case inspection on arrival at
    our cellars, each case is clearly labelled,
    stating ownership, date of receipt, reference
    number into store, stock number and a
    legal statement reinforcing Smith &
    Taylor’s role as custodian and the owner’s
    legal title.



    In many instances, the division between
    valuable bottles of wine and the outside
    world are just six nails in a wooden lid.
    For clients seeking added protection for
    their wine, we can security strap cases
    for an additional fee.

    Checking Levels


    A fine wine’s storage history can often
    be determined by the measurement
    between the level of wine and the cork.
    On older wines, Smith & Taylor records
    this level upon arrival at our cellar door.
