About WSM

Mask Group 2@2x.jpg


Wine Storage Management (WSM) plays a crucial role in preserving the quality and enhancing the maturation of wine, making them indispensable for collectors, investors, and enthusiasts alike. The importance of WSM lies in their ability to provide optimal conditions for wine storage. These conditions are essential for maintaining the wine's integrity, preventing spoilage, and ensuring that its flavors and aromas develop complexity over time. Furthermore, WSM facilities offer security and professional management, safeguarding valuable collections and providing peace of mind. Whether for personal enjoyment or as an investment, the proper storage of wine is critical in realizing its full potential, making WSM’s facilities a necessary investment for anyone serious about their wine.


George Fansmith, the Managing Director of WSM, understands the value of fine wine collections and is a fellow connoisseur who has been in the wine storage industry for over 20 years (and counting). George has built, opened, and managed 9 facilities. George combines his love and knowledge of wine with his excellent client management skills to offer WSM members state-of-the-art services. His expertise is unmatched and one of the reasons why WSM remains a leading brand in innovative wine storage.


The WSM brand began with Teresa and Brian Carlson - who share a love (and deep knowledge) of fine wine. They have been visiting vineyards and collecting wine for as far back as they have known one another. As their passion for fine wine grew, so did their wine collection. In-home wine fridges or even wine rooms can only accommodate so much. So, it was through this need for a dependable off-site wine storage facility and their decades long friendship with George Fansmith that WSM was born.
