In addition to our New York-based wine shop and storage business, The Wine Cellarage specializes in wine relocations. Our logistics team ships thousands of cases of high-value wines every year. From a 120 case cellar removal in Chicago and move to a new home in Seattle to a multi-million dollar refrigerated air shipment to Tokyo, The Wine Cellarage has the logistics experience to move your wine collection safely.
The Wine Cellarage was founded in 2003 by Lars Neubohn. After a ten-year career in the financial services industry, Mr. Neubohn saw the need for a full service customer-focused wine storage facility in New York City. Originally established in Red Hook, Brooklyn, our business quickly outgrew its first location. In 2005, The Wine Cellarage moved to its current location in the American BankNote building, just north of Manhattan in the South Bronx. The BankNote building was purpose built in 1909 for the American Bank Note Company, a firm established in 1795 to print currency, postage stamps, war bonds and stock certificates. This landmark building is a concrete-encased steel frame structure and its massive industrial construction is both highly secure and ideal for wine storage. The Wine Cellarage is located in the center of this 400,000 square-foot fortress and houses over 15,000 cases and 25 million dollars’ worth of wine in temperature and humidity controlled conditions.
By combining customer service and operational execution, The Wine Cellarage has become one of the most reputable wine services providers in the Northeast.

“I was extremely pleased with the prompt professional service that I received from the employees at the Wine Cellarage.

I received the wine by 11:00 am the next day in perfect condition. They did an outstanding job, thanks guys!!!!!.” —Jared Davlin.
“I searched the web for a company to transport my wine from the US to the UK for a reasonable price and with the minimum of fuss, most companies contacted were vague in the exact process of what to do, mostly expensive and did little to offer any comfort that my wine would reach the UK in one piece. It was encouraging to find that Wine Cellarage knew the protocol, were reasonably priced, kept you informed of progress and delivered on their promise. They also provide very good wine storage facilities at a reasonable cost and have no hesitation in storing my recently purchased wine with them.” —Phil Crookes.
“I am writing to tell you how pleased I am with the service and reliability your company provided to me for moving my wine collection from Georgia to Arizona. I found your service to be of high caliber and your prices to be very competitive. I appreciate the care that you gave to my collection and the manner in which the collection was handled and delivered promptly to me. I would not hesitate to use your services again. Thanks for personally taking such good care of me. I know that I am a small customer, but you did not treat me as such.” —Steven Anderson

“I appreciate the service Wine Cellarage gave me. They picked up about 450 bottles of wine from Connecticut and delivered my wines to my new residence in AZ.
