Bringing our passion for wine into a new market starts with the exhilaration of opening a new Domaine facility. However, before the ribbon can be cut, there is exceptional care and intentional planning that must be conducted by our team. Here is an inside look at the building process of our newest location in Pompano Beach – Domaine Florida.
Our Florida team gathered together to develop the spaces that make our facility unique. The air is supercharged with potential and enthusiasm for bringing Domaine to a new market of intrepid wine lovers.
We maintain precise climate controls of 55 degrees and 70 percent humidity in our facilities to protect the quality of your wine collections. We purposely select machines that can consistently monitor a temperature that keeps your collection in pristine condition regardless of the weather conditions. Sized sufficiently to power our entire Florida facility in an emergency - our 100 KW CAT generator powers our systems and equipment that maintain refrigeration settings, humidity levels, and security system throughout the entire facility.
The thrill of welcoming a client’s collection into a new facility is a special experience. Once our occupancy permits were granted, Kyle Hendrickson from our New York facility loaded the first pallets onto the refrigerated truck bound for Pompano Beach.
Black racking system in progress.
When the first truck arrived, we moved those 32 pallets into the facility for categorization on our stunning black racking system. The system can hold a large majority of the 50,000 cases of wine we care for in Florida and keep your wines secure - making them easily accessible when you visit us.
Now that our client’s wine collections are happy and safe in Florida, our team celebrated in the best way we know how - with a celebratory first toast. Our Head of Facilities, Drew Paquin, poured our entire Florida team and general contractor a beautiful glass of Champagne to celebrate the growth of our company and the success we will achieve. We look forward to the emerging opportunities of better serving the Florida wine community and further meeting the storage needs for more wine people throughout the world.
