Our Private Reserves
Built in 1997 Seckford's own temperature controlled, Bonded warehouse is adjacent to its offices. This put Seckford in a unique position, being one of very few merchants in the UK to have its own bonded warehouse.
We currently store approximately over 100,000 cases of wine, which comprises of Seckford stock and client reserves
All wine is kept in our temperature controlled warehouse in Suffolk providing the ideal environment for long-term wine storage
The average temperature in the warehouse is 12 degrees C
Humidity is between 60 & 70%
To obtain this license Seckford has to be of sound financial backing and all stock is monitored by HMRC.
Provenance and security are paramount when handling Fine Wine. Owning the premises and warehouse from which we operate and only allowing our in-house expert staff to handle our wines means we offer an unrivaled level of service - the most important factors to consider for clients wishing to store wine with us
As the bond is located adjacent to our offices we have absolute control of storage and distribution.
Quality control - each case/bottle is checked to make sure there are no problems with the wine that might affect its condition in later life and its potential resale value
All cases are clearly marked as the property of the owner with the customer's name and account number, as well as being individually identified on our computer system with a unique reference number which is cross-referenced against the HMRC database.
No stock can be moved without written permission from the customer.
