The wines are held at LCB – Vinothèque, a bonded-warehouse based in Burton-Upon-Trent, Staffordshire. Vinothèque is a grade II listed building which provides ideal conditions for the storage of fine wine, wine cases are clearly labelled with an individual lot number, specific to its owner, and the well organised computer system makes each case instantly locatable.
Storing wines in a bonded warehouse such as LCB ensures perfect provenance, allowing your wines to achieve the best possible returns when it comes to selling stock. Wines stored in this way are VAT-exempt.
LCB is the largest and oldest bonded warehouse in the UK, storing wines in a managed optimum climate where temperature and humidity are regulated to keep wines in perfect condition. You will receive documentation from LCB certifying you as the sole owner of the wines. If as a client you would like to see the wine, we can assist in arranging condition checks and photos or a personal visit so that you can check the stock onsite yourself.
If you already have your own storage account or would like to arrange an alternative storage solution, we will be happy to make the necessary arrangements. Furthermore, if you would like your wine to be held outside the UK, we can make arrangements on your behalf through our current international logistics partners.
