Do you have treasured bottles of wine you need to place in properly climate controlled storage but don't yet have a setting in your home that stays at 55 degrees in temperature, 60 to 70% humidity, AND is free from vibration and UV rays? If so, you can rent space in our cellars. We offer three types of wine storage, all located in the suburbs of Minneapolis Minnesota:

Wine fridges are NOT suitable for long-term wine storage. The humidity levels in wine fridges are NOT high enough. Although wine fridges attempt to not remove humidity, they do not add humidity. Therefore they do not have the ability to raise the humidity to the proper level.
Wine fridges are advertised using phrasing like "stabilizes humidity". Yes, they do stabilize humidity. But NO, they do not increase the humidity to the level needed for the long term needs of wine bottle corks. If you want to lay down a bottle with a real cork in it for more than 5 years, a wine fridge will NOT work for you.
Some wine fridges come with a little sponge that you are to wet when it becomes dry. Even if you did wet it the second it became dry, the humidity level in the fridge would have already gone down. Wine does NOT behave well to variations in humidity.
