Gourmet Traveller Wine - Secret Service

Gourmet Traveller Wine - All is not what you’d expect at Artisan Wine Storage. What appears to be an ordinary wine storage facility is in fact equipped with more exciting technology.

All is not what you’d expect at Artisan Wine Storage. What appears to be a perfectly ordinary wine storage facility is in fact equipped with more exciting technology than a James Bond movie to protect the valuable stock of both private collectors and commercial traders.

The facility is the first in Australia to exceed the Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency (HKQAA) standard, a code of practice that certifies temperature, humidity, lighting, vibrations, insurance, hygiene, inventory management, maintenance and security, which is as tight as a Swiss Bank.

A high-resolutions surveillance system, which includes 38 cameras, monitoring both inside and outside the warehouse 24 hours a day, doesn’t miss a thing. While a cloud-based Wine Management Portal means customers can manage their inventory from anywhere in the world. Furthermore, the facility is maintained at a constant 12oC and 55-75 per cent humidity to ensure wines are kept in optimum condition.

To top it off, Artisan boasts a highly sophisticated on-site tasting lounge, as well as the members only Methuselah’s Cellar where museum wines, including a dual vertical of Penfolds’ Grange bottles (1951-2008) and magnums (1978-2008), are displayed making it an ideal spot for a dinner or an event. And it is located 15 minutes from Sydney’s CBD in Lane Cove for convenience.
