SCARSDALE, N.Y., Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Zachys has entered the D.C. metropolitan market. The family-owned fine wine retailer, auction house and storage company opened a 20,000-square-foot operations center in Washington, D.C.'s Northeast District, consisting of a showroom, event space and a fully refrigerated, temperature-controlled retail and storage warehouse.
"When looking at prospective spaces, we quickly discovered D.C.'s up-and-coming Northeast District," remarks Zachys President Jeff Zacharia. "We've seen an increase in our online and phone traffic stemming from the D.C. area; showing us there is a demand for a premium wine retailer and auction house in the market. We look forward to providing a white glove experience for our current clients and those new to the brand."
Located at 3521 V Street NE, Zachys' facility provides a premium wine environment through retail, wine tastings and storage offerings. The facility is currently open for customer pickups and consultations by appointment only. Clients can place orders by email and phone.
In addition to retail, the operations center serves as a wine storage facility under the name Zachys Storage D.C. "Fine wine is an investment that deserves to be protected. We are confident our secure, state-of-the-art refrigerated facility is unlike most others. Collectors can be assured their wines are being stored properly and safely as they reach their optimum drinking potential," states Zacharia.
The expansion opens doors for Zachys to host educational wine seminars and tastings, as well as being a platform for consumers to learn and participate in Zachys' upcoming auctions. Bidding parties and auction simulcasts are in the works for the fall season.
