  • Offering a cost effective solution

Using a wine storage unit at our Millbrae, CA location can provide you with a cost effective way to properly store you wine collection.


  • Freeing up space in your home.

Many in the bay area don’t have the space in their homes or apartments to keep their wine collection properly stored. Thus, a self storage unit provides a perfect solution – but remember to always look for a climate-controlled storage option. You can learn more about climate-controlled storage in our Storage Guide!


  • Convenient and effective storage solution for those with larger wine collections.

Some may keep a small wine collection on hand to fit their limited amount of space or their budget. While others, on the other hand, may have a larger collection of wine. Utilizing a self storage unit for your wine collection allows you to keep the bottles you want on hand at home while keeping others in your storage unit until you are ready to enjoy it.
