Nobody really questions that you could manage your wine collection reasonably well if you put your mind to it. You could wash your own car and iron your own shirts too. It's not a question of what you're capable of, it's how you choose to spend your time and use your talents.
But some people would rather let somebody else do the dirty work; moving heavy boxes in and out, and keeping the inventory up to date. Some people would rather hire an expert who, for a reasonable fee, can make wine collecting simpler and more pleasurable. Might you be better off hiring someone to pull it and have it ready for you at the desk when you show up? Or, better still, deliver it to your house or the restaurant or wherever you want? Or ship it to wherever you're heading? Some people just want to sit back and enjoy it. I had this conversation with Harold, who was lugging two ancient milk bottle carriers full of aged Burgundy and Tuscan wines. “We must stop living like animals", he said.
There is a better way. Full-service wine storage. Imagine a life of ease. Drinking wine at your leisure, free of these earthly encumbrances. Don't worry, be happy. Let us handle it. Yes, friends, for just a few dollars more you can have your wine locker cataloged, the inventory available to you on a website and an app for your phone with all the information you could possibly hope for: vintage, bottle size, producer, country, region, vineyard, values, scores, suggested drink dates and a numbered location in your collection. You can export it to a spreadsheet or print it out like a restaurant wine list. You can be the Master of your Universe.
