Getting Your Wines To Us

Once we’ve agreed to enter your wine into auction, we’ve confirmed quantities, condition, reserve prices and auction estimates, you’ll need to make sure your wines get to us before the auction starts.

The deadline is usually the end of the month prior to the Auction going live.

For example, wines for an auction in May would need to be with us by the end of April.


Wines that are stored in your home cellar 

  • Any wines that are not currently stored under-bond, can be sent directly to our Head Office for storage.
  • Transfers can sometimes take up to 10 working days, make sure you book a courier as far in advance of the deadline as you can.
  • Many couriers will not transport wine for private customers. We have an agreement with Rapid-Dispatch that facilitates wine collections across the UK.
  • IMPORTANT – The minimum requirement is that wines are packaged in standard 6 or 12 bottle wine boxes, with dividers. Ideally with extra protection inside.
