While no dollar amount truly captures what that special bottle is worth to you, appraisals are necessary for many reasons ranging from ascertaining the right amount of insurance coverage you require for your collection, estate planning, prenuptial agreements and more. Suddenly, appraisals are no longer a hassle. With a Vine Vault membership, you have a partner who can assist you with appraisal services and a complete report. Request ServiceBack to Top
Wines age better when the cork stays wet. That’s why our innovative corrugate boxes are designed to house your wines lying flat, and protected for many years of pristine storage. They are available for purchase in Magnum and custom sizes.
We also rent beautiful, 12-bottle wooden boxes that accommodate either Bordeaux or Burgundy style bottles in the classic, lay-flat, centuries-old storage method. Each handcrafted box comes with corrugate protective dividers specially designed to conform to the shape of your bottles in our wooden box. Request ServiceBack to Top
Unlike traditional shippers, we understand the importance of moving and storing wine in ideal conditions so that your investment may beautifully age for your future enjoyment.
We will come to your location in one of our refrigerated vans. We will inspect each bottle or case, and pack the wine in our specially designed lay flat boxes, which will keep the corks wet. You can opt to have your collection temporarily stored at our secure, climate and humidity-controlled facility, or delivered and professionally unpacked into its new home. Request ServiceBack to Top
Certificates of Provenance
Vine Vault wants to make sure you enjoy your wine to the fullest, which includes helping you maximize the value of your wine. Should you elect to sell your wine, we can provide assistance with proper documentation that demonstrates how your wine has been stored at our facility. We can provide a certificate that demonstrates the actual temperature and humidity levels that your wines were stored in during their stay with us.
A certificate of provenance has become increasingly important as the fine wine market continues to mature. In recent ex-cellar chateau auctions, wines across all vintages have achieved prices as high as two times their market value, thanks in part to their impeccable provenance. Request ServiceBack to Top
As a fine wine collector, we understand the importance and how valuable your cellar is to you. Most collectors have spent years building up their cellar, collecting wines from all over the world including many sentimental wines and some representing experiences you have had during your life.
But we also know that the majority of homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover nor specifically address most of the exposures related to wine collections, especially when it comes to:
- Extreme temperatures
- Mechanical breakdown and
- Unforeseen events in shipping and transits
Vine Vault has partnered with a leading broker who can provide top tier all risks coverage underwritten 100% by Lloyds of London.
Regardless of the size of your collection, Vine Vault’s relationship with such a world-class specialty insurance provider means that we can help you secure the appropriate amount of coverage to protect your collection. Vine Vault can appraise and certify your wines value for the purpose of the policy. Insuring against loss with our partner’s programs is usually more cost effective than a rider on a homeowner’s policy, which just adds another smart reason to have a valuable Vine Vault membership.

Part of appreciating your wine collection is having the ability to view and cultivate it. Members have the option to manage their Vine Vault inventory online themselves, or Vine Vault can do it for them.
You may from time to time want us to inventory the rest of your collection that you keep in your wine cellar at home or in other locations, whether just to have a full view of all of your collection, to put it all in one wine management system, or to have it appraised for insurance or estate planning purposes.
Heaven forbid you wait past a bottle’s peak or forget a bottle within your growing collection. Inventory management solves those unfortunate situations. That is just one of the details you can enjoy about a Vine Vault membership. Request InformationBack to Top
We can provide custom packaging solutions and white-glove treatment for each bottle, so you aren’t burdened with packing and moving heavy boxes.
