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.

  • Any wines that are not currently stored under-bond, can be sent directly to our Head Office for storage.
  • We have an agreement with the Auction Services provided by Mailboxes Etc… that facilitates wine drop-off points across the UK.
