structures were constructed almost 80 years ago by the British
Military to serve as an ammunition and weapons storage depot
in preparation for World War II. The site was originally known
as the Central Ordnance (Munitions) Depot, and included 24
underground Bunkers, of which only 8 remain.
Owing to their intended purpose, the Bunkers
are located approximately 20 meters below ground with 1-meter
thick concrete walls and 12-meter long entrance passages.
Despite these excellent natural cellar attributes, CWC has
gone one step further by introducing state-of-the-art computer-controlled
equipment to provide the ultimate cellar environment.
In order to assist the serious collection
and future trade of wine, the essential cellar attributes
of even temperature, balanced humidity, zero vibration and
controlled light exposure have been brought together in virtual
text-book perfection. In short, all wines cellared at Crown
Wine Cellars enjoy unsurpassed provenance.
“We have created a perfect replica
of the cellar in which your wine matured for the first critical
years after bottling – nothing more and nothing less.”
