Safeguarding Your Wine Collection

Safeguarding Your Wine Collection

Measures to safeguard your collection:

  • Store your wine in a cool dark place, such as a cellar or somewhere where temperature will remain fairly even throughout the year
  • If your collection is extensive, consider investing in a temperaturecontrolled cupboard, or placing wines in a specialist storage warehouse
  • Keep wines in their original case as this can add value when you come to sell
  • Avoid boiler rooms, washrooms or garages where machinery is active - the vibrations will prevent the wine from settling and maturing properly
  • Lay bottles on their side to keep corks moist
  • Store in a dry location to avoid moisture damage to labels
  • Keep a cellar book updated with details of recent purchases and consumption
  • Arrange regular valuations

“May I just say what a pleasure it has been speaking to you and your team on the phone. They have been nothing short of polite and helpful and they also have a sense of humour!”

About La Playa Private Client

Specialist & Independent

Specialist & Independent

La Playa Private Client creates a safe space for you to live life to the full, enjoying your family, friends, and assets wherever you are in the world - without worry or hassle.

We can make sense of all your insurance needs - property, yachts and superyachts, high-performance and classic cars, private jets, art, wine and jewellery collections – and your liabilities too. We can pull multiple assets together on a single “portfolio” policy – or if you prefer, take care of each item separately. 

Amid the impersonal and automated world of large insurance corporations, La Playa provides a refreshingly boutique-style service, with individual advice, and cover based on in-depth understanding of your specific situation. After a detailed and confidential review of your needs and priorities, we’ll structure your insurance arrangements so you know you and your family are protected, come what may.  

In-house Wealth Management

We also offer Investments & Pensions and Financial Planning: a joined up approach with a team of advisers working for your best financial interests - all under one roof.
