Margerum Tasting Room Teams Up with Santa Barbara Wine Storage

The affiliates are offering special offers to new clients through March

Margerum Tasting Room, also known as The Wine Cask, has teamed up with Santa Barbara Wine Storage, run by the Carey Group Inc., to save clients time and money.

Most wine collectors and wine club members love to avoid three things: waiting at home or work for a wine delivery (wine has to be receipted for by someone older than age 21), shipping charges (which can run $3 a bottle) and having their wine shipped during warm weather (April to October).

Brooks Van Wingerden, marketing director for Margerum Winery had the winning idea, according to Trudi Carey, president of The Carey Group, Inc. and manager of Santa Barbara Wine Storage.

When Brooks was touring the wine cellars, a “lightning bolt went off” and she said she could easily have Margerum Winery’s delivery truck (coming down from its vineyard in Santa Ynez) stop at Santa Barbara Cellars on its way to its tasting room on Anacapa Street. Margerum Wine Club members would then avoid a shipping fee and not have the worry of having their wine sit in a hot truck during the summer months.

Additionally, Santa Barbara Wine Storage clients with receiving services would eliminate the need to wait for shipments at their home or office.

For many wine collectors, the shipping savings alone could pay for their cellar rental. With cellar rents starting at $15 a month and shipping charges per case of up to $36, it is very easy to see that this is a winning formula.

To celebrate this new affiliation, all new wine storage clients at Santa Barbara Cellars are being offered free wine tasting from the Margerum tasting room during March, and Margerum Wine Club members receive a free month’s rent on a new cellar rental in March.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
