San Francisco Wine Center


This is our mission statement, our credo, and our mantra at San Francisco Wine Center. Whether you’re an established collector that needs more space or just have a couple cases lying around that would be much better off in temperature controlled storage, we have a storage membership that fits your needs. Why wonder if that bottle you just bought and really like will still be there next time. Buy a case and store it in pristine conditions and enjoy that great wine as it matures. Why worry about your wine deliveries arriving when you’re not home. Send them to your private storage cellar at SF Wine Center and forget about them until you come by for your next visit.

SF Wine Center’s 230 private, secure, temperature-controlled storage spaces come in a variety of sizes and we have storage membership programs from monthly to multi year. In most cases you can literally pay for your storage with the savings from buying favorite wines by the case instead of the bottle. The rest of the benefits of SF Wine Center membership are gravy!

As a Storage Member, enjoy exclusive perks including complimentary shipping and move-in assistance, private use of our beautiful lounges and event spaces, members only tastings of highly rated collectible wines, and special pricing and purchasing assistance from our expert staff of wine industry experts, Master Sommeliers and James Beard award-winning wine authors. Click the “Storage” link above to learn more about why every wine fan should also be a wine collector.



Whether you’re an established collector that needs more space or just have a few cases lying around the house that would be better off in temperature controlled storage, we have a storage service that fits your needs. Share a locker with a friend and gain access to our two beautiful wine lounges, special storage member events, and friendly community of wine fans. If you’re a collector that lives outside the San Francisco area, we offer special services for you as well. Have your allocations and wine club shipments sent to SF Wine Center and we’ll store them in your private cellar space for proper aging and then pack and ship them to you when they’re ready to drink. This service is especially valuable for collectors that live in states to which wineries can’t easily direct ship your wine to you.

Temperatures are always set at optimal conditions, keyless entry, cameras and motion sensors provide state-of-the-art security, and the storage units themselves are specially engineered and reinforced. The SFWC's 230 lockers come in a variety of sizes with monthly storage rates ranging from $100 for a 3' x 2' x 8' space to $450 for a 7' x 7' x 8' locker to fit any size collection or budget.

Beyond the 6,500 square feet of secure, private, climate-controlled cellar spaces, San Francisco Wine Center offers its members an array of great benefits. Membership is exclusive to San Francisco Wine Center storage clients.


The San Francisco Wine Center has two beautiful private rooms, our collectors-only Reserve Room as well as our City Room, where we host numerous wine and community-related events throughout the year for both our members and private groups, including:

  • Exclusive wine tastings
  • Wine education classes
  • Food & wine pairing events
  • Holiday parties

Experience this unique place and we're sure that you will discover a great way to share your passion with friends old and new. 


When we aren’t hosting classes or special events of our own, we rent out our events venue to private groups looking for a modern, intimate place to throw a party, host a cooking class or private wine class for your friends, or hold an off-site meeting in San Francisco. Our collectors are always invited to stop and use our events spaces to open a bottle with a few friends or they can reserve the spaces for larger parties for the cost of the cleaning bill.
