Corporate Spotlight: The Vault Wine Storage

by NAWBO-Phoenix

Deb-with-bldg-signOn October 1, 2013, Deborah Fortini opened the first 100-percent wine storage facility in Phoenix, named The Vault Wine Storage. Prior to then, wine lovers had only the option of storing their wine in home cellars or in self-storage facilities, which do not cater to the specific needs of wine clientele. Deborah Fortini changed all of that when she purchased a property in October of 2012, specifically to be converted to a wine storage facility. “Most people don’t want to worry about wine cellar failure, break-ins, or even guests or kids getting into their wine collections when they are away.”

Not only does The Vault provide peace of mind by addressing security, backup and mitigation plans, but it also caters its concierge services to wine clientele. For instance, members have more than 20 different size lockers to choose or expand into, and they can ship their wine club memberships or wine purchases directly to The Vault without having to be present to sign for the delivery. The Vault Wine Storage also has a tasting room for the members’ use and holds regular tasting events.

Fortini has a passion for wine, and she also has extensive experience in commercial real estate, as she spent the prior 10 years as a commercial real estate broker for Cushman & Wakefield in San Diego, selling office and industrial buildings. When she conceived the wine storage concept, and decided upon Phoenix, she located the perfect building, property and location to convert to wine storage. That property also contained a second building, an industrial building with a roll-up door and views of Camelback Mountain. Fortini is currently converting that building to a restaurant and wine bar, to finally complete her vision of creating a destination site that brings wine lovers together.
