Etiquette

The Bottle Shock Winelounge extends a warm welcome to the public (including non-wineBANKers) during opening hours. But the areas where the wines are actually cellared are reserved exclusively for wineBANKers.
The wineBANK is an exclusive location created for the storing of magnificent wines. But it is also a Private Members’ Club, a place to enjoy communicating with like-minded people where good wines can be tasted and enjoyed. If, as a wineBANKer, you wish to use the wineBANK for any other reason, e.g. your own commercial purposes (holding a presentation, giving a talk or organizing wine tastings, etc.), it is essential that you first obtain our consent before doing so.

The wineBANK always has its doors open for every single wineBANKer. Even if you have booked, for example, a wine tasting event in the wineBANK with us or you have arranged a visit for a larger group (see next paragraph), that does not necessarily mean that you will have the entire wineBANK to yourself. Always be prepared to rub shoulders there with other interesting people who share the same burning passion for wine as you do.

As a wineBANKer you can always be rest assured that a stylish, wonderfully tranquil ambience is waiting to greet you on arrival. In order to ensure such peaceful exclusiveness, every wineBANKer’s card grants admission to a total of 4 people. If you have a card but wish to visit the wineBANK frequently with more than 4 guests, then it would be advisable to consider applying for a partner card. This would entitle you to bring along 4 more people. Should you wish to visit the wineBANK with more persons than your card(s) would permit, you are obliged to inform us of your intentions in advance. Therefore, it is best to contact us as early as possible and to only begin planning your visit after we have approved the visit. From a certain number of people upwards, we reserve the right to calculate an additional charge for use of the premises.

We regularly stage events on set dates when we extend an invitation to the wineBANKer´s Table (exclusive to wineBANKers and their guests). The dates will be published on the website www.winebank.de. On such occasions, it is likely that more guests than usual will be enjoying a visit to the wineBANK.
The wineBANK enjoys functioning in a largely autonomous way in the actual areas concerned with wine storage. We, as operators of the wineBANK, ensure that all the facilities of the wineBANK are thoroughly cleaned every morning, that fresh glasses are available every day, that mineral water supplies and the like are replenished. But in the course of an evening, it is the wineBANKers themselves who see to it that everything runs smoothly and indeed self-sufficiently, simply by observing a few important rules. We trust that you, as a considerate wineBANKer, will always leave the wineBANK in the same state as you would wish to find it. And before leaving, please ensure that all used glasses and opened or empty bottles are placed in the areas intended for such used utensils. Please also return all used wine accessories to their usual places. Dispose of all garbage in the trash can located in the tasting counter. Wipe clean the counter's surface especially if anything has spilled over. We are most grateful to you for this help and so are the next guests!
The temperature in the wine storage areas is optimized to suit the storing of wines. The optimal drinking temperature for white wines, sparkling wines and champagne is below this level. For these wines we have a chiller cabinet at your disposal where you can drop the temperature by a few degrees within a few minutes.
The wineBANK Frankfurt by Bottle Shock does not have its own parking lot. We would therefore suggest that you park your car, for example, in the adjacent Stock Exchange parking garage (Parkhaus Börse). However, when loading or unloading wine it is perfectly in order for you to halt in the loading zone directly in front of our entrance.
Every guest visiting the wineBANK, and that includes you, expects and can indeed always be sure that he or she will find the wineBANK immaculately turned out at all times. A bowl of potato salad carried in and set on the tasting counter or a counter littered with crumbs would undoubtedly cloud the vista we wish to create. And, furthermore, such a scenario is not hygienic. Therefore, it is strictly forbidden to bring any of your own meals or snacks onto our premises. Similarly, it is not permitted to engage any delivery services or outside caterers, etc. The only exceptions to this ruling are when it comes to our "Winelounge by Bottle Shock" and our exclusive caterers. You simply have to make prior arrangements with the staff and then they will be available for you around the clock. You feel that the prices are a little higher than those of other caterers? You’re absolutely right! This is caused not least by the fact that our caterers, as the exclusive partner of the wineBANK, are obliged to collect and clear away any dishes or food leftovers etc. immediately after you leave (even if this is late in the night). The tasting counters are also to be cleaned immediately so that the next guests arriving will be able to enjoy the usual classy atmosphere.
The wineBANK is a stylish venue oozing esthetic sophistication. For this reason, and in order to show consideration to all other guests present, we would request that you dress appropriately when you visit. We do not wish to lay down a more detailed ruling here as we are sure your intuition and good taste will find the right kind of attire for our wineBANK events. A pair of smart sneakers and classy jeans would certainly be quite acceptable to other wineBANKers.

We trust you appreciate we cannot be made liable for loss or damage to items left in the cloakroom.
