Cellar management

Elevator Food and Beverage provides many necessary services for the benefit of and in service to your wine investment. Cellar management includes a variety of tasks ranging from initial installation through to wine auctioning and sales. Each cellar is unique to each individual. We are here to help with any and all cellaring needs. Feel free to pick and choose which services you require, or hire us in a full service, full time capacity. The services we offer are as follows:

Wine Appraisal:

Discerning how much a wine is worth at any given time is a challenge, and sometimes, almost a science. Taking into account the shifting sands of the wine world, Elevator Food and Beverage will appraise your wines to the current market, as well as offering you tips and tricks for when to buy, and what to cellar. We are connected to the largest wine auctions in the city, and our database of world wide wine prices is constantly expanding. 

Inventory and Catalogue:

One of the most frustrating aspects of cellar management is inventory. How often have you opened a bottle by mistake; something not quite right for the occasion. Or have you lost a bottle you swore you put ‘in the back somewhere?’ Elevator Food and Beverage will keep a running catalogue and up-to-date inventory of your wines, in order to minimize these tragic occurrences as much as possible. Reorganization of the cellar is a constant task, as wines come and go. If you are purchasing wine as an investment, inventory and cataloguing are even more crucial. Get the most out of your bottles, and let us do the Excel-ing.

Cellar Design and Installation:

Each cellar, each home, each restaurant is different. Protecting your bottles from heat and light aren’t the only considerations. Integrating your cellar in your living space, or setting up an intimate, ‘wine-only’ space is up to you. We work with talented and creative interior design agencies; excited to design for your unique space. Our cellar installation team is ready to make them a reality. 

Moving and Cellar Relocation:

Nothing is worse than moving, and transporting your precious wines can be unnecessarily stressful. Let the Elevator Food and Beverage team alleviate your anxieties with our experienced moving team. We will pack up, transport, and reorganize the wines into your new cellar. No need to overspend on bubble wrap and cardboard.

Cellar Maintenance:

As with any other space, issues may come up at times in your cellar. Let us be your first call. Elevator Food and Beverage has a vast network of professionals on our payroll, and don’t want you to waste any time or stress on a broken AC valve. Up to date inventory and cataloguing are also available to you, so that there is never any doubt as to what you have and need!

Wine Purchase and Auction:

Elevator Food and Beverage works with an extensive team of agents and wineries, and are able to get incredible deals for your cellar, as well as offer you tips for when and where to buy. Excellent vintage news comes to us straight from the source, and we will be sure to keep you in the know. No wine is unfindable for us, and we are happy to seek out more information on wines that you love, or wineries you’d like to visit.

When the time comes to reap the rewards of your wine investment, we at Elevator Food and Beverage will be happy to list your wines in our personal database, or with a third party auction; whatever will get you the best value for your wines! As prices and availability fluctuate, we can also offer you tips and tricks for when and where to sell.
