Estate Wine Brokers inventoried and priced the collection, moved it to their storage facility, and thoughtfully sold bottles on a regular basis. I would recommend anyone with a significant collection use them to professionally sell their holdings.” - M.V., $103,843.83 earned as of July 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". - L.K., $20,042.34 earned as of June 2020

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., $15,159.27 earned as of March 2020
"When I decided to sell a case of rare wine I was fortunate enough to find an excellent company to conduct the transaction with. The team at EWB 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. With Darren and Alex you will be dealing with true professionals as they did exactly what they said they would do. I will definitely work with them again." - L.P., $13,380.00 earned as of July 2020
