Sell My Wine

Selling your wine collection can be a 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.

To begin the appraisal process, please prepare an inventory of your wine that includes the name of every producer, vintage, vineyard or proprietary wine name, quantity on hand, bottle size, and bottle condition (Microsoft Excel is our preferred format).  All wine must have a defined provenance, and documentation and/or purchase receipts may be required.  Please use the contact form below if you have any questions or require any assistance with this process.

We frequently purchase high-end 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 clients:

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.- M.V.,  $90,047.68 earned as of April 2018

"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." - C.E., $100,282.20 earned as of April 2018

"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." - J.J., $5,510.70 earned as of May 2018
