Public wine storage in Hoboken?

1/21/2010:

Hoboken is a town filled with wine connoisseurs, and many residents have various ways to store their collections, ranging from the sophisticated built-in wine cellars, to just simple wine racks or refrigeration systems.

But what if you don’t have room, or your collection is just too big?

A wine storage facility in Hoboken would be great!

wine storage hoboken NJHoboken411 reader Erin, who is about to re-locate to the Mile Square from Chicago, keeps a modest collection of wine. And near where she lived in Chi-town, she had access to a local wine storage facility to help keep her vino in top condition.

I sent her a few links in the the surrounding area, but most were either too sophisticated and costly or too far. She tells her story below – and perhaps there’s something I missed and you can share your info with her?

“411,

Thanks for the help. My collection is small… just about 8 cases.

I’ve just been so spoiled being here in Chicago where there is this great place called Kent Cellars. It is a concrete building that is humidity and temperature controlled and just filled with private lockers. My locker there costs $220 a year! I love it but it isn’t as fancy as western carriers link you sent me. You have to go fetch your own wine out of your own locker and there are very limited hours (which is great for helping you keep a collection and not drink it all).

Thanks again for the tips and leads, just wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing something that the locals knew about and I wasn’t seeing on the web. Your blog has been very helpful to me in getting to know the area. Hopefully my transfer will be approved in the next day or two so I can get down to business on the move!

Have a great week and happy blogging!”

Anyone have any good suggestions? Or want to rent their cellar out?

Or this smaller version one that holds 160 bottles.

Serious collectors can store up to 160 bottles in this multi-zone wine cooler. Multiple temperature zones in this wine cellar allow for storage of both red and white wines at their optimum temperatures. For convenience, you simply need to set the coldest desired temperature and the upper section of the cabinet will adjust accordingly to provide you with optimum temperature throughout the cabinet. With a stylish brushed metal door and black cabinet body, this front-vented unit can be built-in or operated as a beautiful free-standing unit. Fifteen gliding metal shelves with wood trim provide easy access to your ample storage space. A digital display with two temperature LEDs, central control panel, internal light and locking door make operation hassle-free.

I agree, off-site wine storage is not practical from site and $ terms from Hoboken. Though I almost went with the Manhattan Wine Co.-they are the most reasonable and close to Hoboken (Maplewood/South Orange?). Moishes is close but costs and arm and a leg, they are in a warehouse by the holland tunnel ramps from highay 1&9 – similar to western carriers in other ways too. I received a Eurocave for free at decision time that stored 200+ bottles, so I did not go with MWC. If you have under 200 bottles bite the bullet and buy a unit like Vinotemp. You will use it for a very long time and is from a reputable company. Beverage Factory and Costco have the best prices. Eurocave is the best, but all large units are $2000+, mostly $3k with a glass door. I have a few units that I bought over craiglist and from bevrage factory and have had great success with all of them. Stay away from the generic, refidgerator companies as they have a rather scary level of failure in that they get too cold by malfunction and freeze your wine (thermostat does not work and the compreesor goes into overdrive as it does not know the temp inside). Also by a hydrometer that read the humidity and temperature. A generic version only costs about $15-20 or so. Any questions contact me throgh my blog! http://www.tomswineblog.blogspot.com costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prod...hse=BC&Ne=4000000&eCat=BC|103|20665|78619&N=4034968&Mo=7&No=2&Nr=P_CatalogName:BC&cat=78619&Ns=P_Price|1||P_SignDesc1&lang=en-US&Sp=C&hierPath=103*20665*78619*&topnav= beveragefactory.com/wine/wine/dualz...notemp_VT-188-BBW_wine_cellar.shtml Avantis ok too! http://www.beveragefactory.com/wine/wine/60-200/WC681BG.shtml In response to YipYap who said: Or this… Read more »

I have room for your wine. You can leave it at my house and I promise I will not drink it. 🙂
