Wine storage by a wine expert safeguards collections and connects wine enthusiasts in Culver City

(LOS ANGELES, CA – June 27, 2023) – Walker Wine Company, a fine and rare wine online retailer, announces the opening of its new state-of-the-art wine storage facility in Los Angeles: Walker Wine Locker. Located in Culver City, the 5,500 square foot refrigerated space provides wine collectors and trade professionals with secure, temperature and humidity-controlled storage, convenient access, and a full range of services.

Founded by wine specialist Walker Strangis, the new storage destination facility expands upon his fine and rare wine retail operation, further enhancing his reputation within the collecting community. Strangis founded his namesake online retail brand Walker Wine Company in 2017 and built the Locker to meet the growing demand for temperature controlled storage by wine collectors, restaurants and wine trade needing convenient offsite solutions.

Walker Wine Locker provides a variety of secure storage options, ranging from private lockers accommodating up to 24 cases to expansive walk-in wine rooms featuring custom-built wine racks and shelving as well as pallet storage. The space is equipped to ensure that wine is stored at the perfect temperature and humidity levels, including offering backup power supply and operating 24/7 security monitoring to always safeguard the wine.

With more than 15 years of experience in the wine auction business—including Christie’s, Bonhams and Zachys—Strangis imparts his industry expertise and passion for collecting to provide unparalleled attention to clients. He is committed to preserving high-value collections and ensuring their proper care, and the Locker is the trusted storage partner of annual fine wine events including La Paulée and La Fête du Champagne events in Los Angeles.

“We recognize how important provenance is to preserve the health and value of a wine collection. Large or small, rarities or daily drinkers, proper storage is essential to maximizing the return on investment,” says Strangis.

For those looking to expand, divest or simply learn more about their collection, Walker Wine Locker clients benefit from Strangis’ elite and personalized services including collection appraisals and bottle condition evaluations.

Additionally, members gain access to a range of exclusive in-house events, including wine tastings featuring renowned producers and importers. They can also look forward to private wine dinners, curated events and travel experiences that celebrate iconic wine regions such as Burgundy, Bordeaux, Champagne, Piedmont, and Napa.

With a penchant for old, rare and storied producers and their vintages, Walker and his clients are a cluster of passionate connoisseurs, collectors and sommeliers who constantly exchange knowledge and connect to wine far beyond the norm. For those just beginning the journey or have a well-stocked cellar, Walker is a trusted name in fine and rare wine collecting and culture.
