Selling your wine collection can be quite an emotional task. You've collected fine wine, perhaps for decades, and now you've arrived at a point where it makes more financial sense to sell your collection than to consume it. Estate Wine Brokers is always interested in brokering or purchasing your properly cellared fine wine, and will handle the door-to-door logistics of every transaction. Our unparalleled access to current market rates will ensure that you receive the best possible return on your investment while avoiding the high commissions and uncertainties of wine auctions.
We frequently purchase fine wines from California (Napa Valley and Sonoma), Bordeaux, Burgundy, Italy, and elsewhere. If you're asking the question "How do I sell my wine collection?" the first thing you must ask yourself is why? Do you need money? Have your tastes changed, did you stop drinking wine, or did you inherit a wine collection? We want to make sure that regardless of the reason why you want to sell your wine collection, it's done with respect, dignity, and confidentiality.
Below are testimonials from some of our current and former clients:
"Estate Wine Brokers obviously have an impeccable reputation in the industry as they are trusted with rare treasures from far reaching locations. I was referred to Wine Estate Brokers by a friend who advised me that my wine was far too exclusive for most wine brokerages so I took his sage advice and contacted Darren. The process was professional and seamless, he was successful beyond my hopes and in a short period of time. I highly endorse them!" - C.R., $14,768.00 earned as of January 2021
"We’ve used Estate Wine Brokers for all sides of our wine collecting needs: acquisition, storage, and resale. From acquiring a large private collection at very attractive prices, to selling down some of our excess inventory, to storing items we are holding for later, Alex and Darren have been the consummate professionals." - Chris E., $117,729.41 earned as of May 2020
“I was in the process of downsizing from a house to a condo and needed to sell the collection in my cellar. EWB catalogued and priced the collection, moved it to their storage facility and has thoughtfully sold bottles on a regular basis. I would recommend anyone with a significant collection use them to professionally sell their holdings.” - Mitch V., $103,843.83 earned as of April 2018
"We were selling our collection of fine Bordeaux as we were relocating overseas; we were attracted to Estate Wine Brokers as a more convenient and cost efficient solution than area auction houses. Going with Darren and Estate Wine Brokers was a great decision. They're knowledgeable, totally transparent and have a deep network of active fine wine buyers, while their customer service is excellent: responsive, efficient and always pleasant. In short, if you want to get a good price for your fine wine, with zero effort on your part, I recommend you leave it all to Estate Wine Brokers". - Lionel K., $20,042.34 earned as of June 2020
"I wouldn't hesitate to sell wine again with Estate Wine Brokers. Their in house customer list is full of active wine buyers, and their pricing model ensures wines get sold both quickly and at a fair price. Proceeds arrive on time and significantly faster than most auction houses. It's as hassle-free as wine selling can get." - Jason J., $15,159.27 earned as of March 2020
"When I decided to sell a case of extremely rare wine I was fortunate enough to find an excellent company to conduct the transaction with. The team at Wine Estate Brokers were professional and fair in the offer they made for my wine and then once we agreed on the price; Darren made the process seamless and easy from start to finish. I would recommend Estate Wine Brokers to anyone looking to either source or sell high end wines as they are very knowledgeable and experienced. In the world of the internet it is sometimes hard to know what kind of company you are dealing with. Well with Darren and Alex you will be dealing with ultimate professionals as they did exactly what they said they would do. I will definitely work with them again." - Lee P., $13,380.00 earned as of July 2020
