STORAGE & PROVENANCE
One of the most important safeguards for your investment is to ensure that your wine is stored within the correct environment, therefore ensuring the highest level of Storage-Provenance when you decide to sell.
To ensure the very highest storage-provenance – Twaites & Jones only trade in wines that have been stored within the European bonded system.
We hold an excellent relationship with one of the UK’s leading Bonded Warehouse facilities; VINOTHÈQUE – which is part of the London City Bond group.
The temperature and humidity within Vinothèque are close to ideal. Insulation, airflow and natural light shuttering ensure that wines develop in a carefully controlled atmosphere. Constant monitoring ensures that all wines from inexpensive table wines to top Chateau Claret are kept and matured in ideal conditions. Private investors or trade customers can therefore be assured that their investment is secure. Equally important, the warehouse is physically secure and protected by a state of the art intruder alarm system. The heavy oak doors and significant ironmongery from yesteryear have been boosted by state-of-the-art CCTV cameras that monitor every angle and corner of the building, inside and out, extensively. A security company – the same firm that protects the major banks and high value businesses elsewhere in the area – has 24/7 security patrols, and there are, of course, all the usual security checks and monitors on all staff and visitors to and from the site.
