Benefits of storing your wine at Falcon Self Storage
Storing your wine at a storage facility offers several benefits that can help you protect and manage your collection more effectively. Here are some of the key benefits:
At Falcon Self Storage, our storage units are designed to maintain a consistent temperature and humidity level, which is critical for preserving the quality of your wines. Fluctuations in temperature and humidity can cause the wine to spoil or age prematurely, leading to off-flavours and aromas. By storing your wine in a temperature-controlled facility, you can ensure that your wine tastes as it should when you’re ready to drink it.
At Falcon Self Storage, we are equipped with advanced security measures, such as surveillance cameras, alarm systems, and access controls. This level of security can give you confidence that your investment is protected from theft or damage.
Storing wine at home can quickly take up a lot of space, especially if you have a large collection. By using a storage facility, you can free up room in your home and keep your wine in a dedicated, organized space.

Shelving for your storage unit
When it comes to storing wine, the storage unit itself is just one part of the equation. The shelving you use to organize and store your wine bottles can be just as important.
At Falcon Self Storage, we require you to bring your own shelving or purchase it separately.
Here are some key considerations to keep in mind when it comes to shelving for your storage unit:
- Size: Before purchasing or bringing your own shelving, make sure to measure the dimensions of your storage unit. You’ll want to ensure that the shelving you choose fits comfortably within the space, leaving enough room for you to access your wine bottles easily.
- Material: The material of the shelving is another important consideration. Ideally, you’ll want to choose a material that is durable, easy to clean, and won’t damage your wine bottles. Popular options include metal, wood, and plastic. Keep in mind that some materials may be better suited to temperature-controlled environments than others.
- Configuration: The configuration of your shelving can also affect how easy it is to store and access your wine bottles. Consider the spacing between shelves and whether the shelving allows you to store bottles both horizontally and vertically. You may also want to consider a shelving system that allows you to adjust the height of the shelves as your collection grows.
- Capacity: Finally, consider the capacity of your shelving in relation to your wine collection. You’ll want to choose shelving that can accommodate your current collection, while also leaving room for future growth.
