Ever since Barons left the Del Mar Highlands locals in San Diego's North County have been always limited in where they can store wine offsite. While pal Art Kinberg has had his Vintage Storage location in Carlsbad for ten years and pal Gary Parker has rented lockers at Wine Sellar and Brasserie for over 20 years, both are regularly at or near capacity and the prospect of large quantity storage was rather elusive. So while space in Carlsbad is available, other locations are popping up around San Diego to help those in need of temerature controlled off-site storage
As of this week, a new storage facility has opened in Solana Beach and it's being operated by the same folks who operate San Diego Wine Storage in down town San Diego. For collectors who had to scramble when Barons left this is a dream come true. The just off Steven Avenue location is a few minutes from both the coast and the nearby I-5, making access so easy.
