Wine Storage

It is important that wine is stored in the correct conditions in order to preserve the wine and get the best out of it. We offer our clients wine storage services both In Bond and have a wine store opening in Yorkshire. See our Cellar Management page in our Wine Advisor section or give us a call to discuss wine storage.

In Bond Storage
We store all our wines with the London City Bond Ltd, one of the UK’s leading wine storage companies. Our warehouse is in Tilbury in Essex. All private client wine is stored in a dedicated account for Bon Coeur Fine Wine Private Reserves. Each person has an individual named account; the wines are named for the individual account and each case has their own particular rotation number. We recommend this type of storage for Investment Wines only.

Exempt of Duty and VAT wines can be held and then sold “under bond” when you wish to realise your investment. Wine released from bond will be subject to Duty, VAT and delivery from bond at the prevailing rate. We also handle under bond transfers which are charged depending upon the destination bonded warehouse.

There is a minimum charge of £50 per year to store wines In Bond with our Private Reserves.

Please note should you wish to store wines not bought through BCFW there is a receiving charge of £3.95 per case (ex VAT).  Thereafter the above storage charges apply.  You will need to notify us in advance to transfer wines into your bonded account - you will need to provide evidence of the levels and condition of wines prior to the transfer.

The above prices include insurance for the cost of replacing the wine. Please note once the wine is received by yourself you will need to organise your own insurance cover.
