Bordeaux Index moves to state-of-the-art warehouse

Published:  20 September, 2012

Fine wine merchant Bordeaux Index is moving its entire stock to a new, state-of-the-art storage facility, signalling its intent to continue its expansion in the fine wine market.

Its aim is to guarantee future capacity for increased stockholding and client reserves, and commitment to innovation by providing the best possible services to customers.

Under the terms of the long-term deal with Octavian, all the wine stored by Bordeaux Index will be moved to the new high-tech, high-security site at Colerne in Wiltshire.

The heavily insulated site offers cutting-edge technology to control temperature and humidity, as well as eliminate UV light, to ensure the wine matures in the best possible conditions. Each case will be logged and barcoded on receipt making every case individually traceable.

Company founder and managing director Gary Boom said: "The storage conditions and service standards are nothing short of outstanding - it significantly raises the bar for the entire industry. As we continue to grow, it's important for us to have increased access to the best possible storage conditions for our clients' reserves. This new facility offers unprecedented levels of service, growth capacity and physical and financial security."

Boom added: "This is great news for our customers, but it's also a shot in the arm for the sector. While the wider market continues its focus on key, growth markets in Asia, opening up a site like this reinforces the point that the UK is still the fulcrum for the global industry."
