Approached the London Wine Cellar on the advice of London City Bond, and what a breath of fresh air they are! Excellent company extremely professional and efficient. Particular thanks to Jack who dealt with my transaction for his approach which was friendly and helpful at all times and gave me a great valuation. Had previously been scammed and Jack was very re-assuring and helpful in that situation. The transaction was completed very quickly and efficiently and the proceeds received quickly. I was very happy to sell my whole portfolio to them. Would recommend without reservation. Would use them again any time!!

A chance reading of an advert in Country Life lead me to this company. I had a couple of cases which I wished to sell and found their co-operation very helpful. A speedy estimate was sent and the process for continuing the process was both simple and speedy. I was delighted with the offer but even more impressed by the friendly service. No hesitation in recommending The London Wine Cellar.

I had a substantial wine collection ( cases and individual bottles) which I wished to sell but was unsure of who to deal with. I looked up 'wine valuations' and studied various companies and their services. I selected 3 companies and provided the same information to each, i.e. I was trying to sell as much of my collection in one transaction, I wanted as little hassle as possible and as I live in Northern Ireland the transport was likely to be an issue. I was also concerned about sending my portfolio somewhere in order to be examined before I was paid. Tim from The London Wine Cellar replied within minutes of my email being sent and by the end of the call I was very happy with the way he proposed to do business. He would come to my premises, examine the condition of the wine and pay before taking it! Risk was eliminated provided my wine was in proper condition. A full quote followed within 48 hours with Tim keeping me informed throughout. The quote was accepted after a couple of minor alterations. Tim arranged to come to NI early the next week for collection and payment. Everything went perfectly, Tim and his colleague Cameron examined all the bottles and in a couple of instances price changes were agreed due to packaging condition/slight low fills but I was there to see and agree to these rather than receive a call and have to take someone's word without being able to judge myself. After this the final price was agreed, paid and in my account before the wine was loaded into Tim's van. All in all I was delighted with The London Wine Cellar and thoroughly recommend them. Regarding the other companies I contacted, one replied within 48 hours of the original email and quoted for full cases only. Wine to be examined in London. The other acknowledged receiving the list but has yet to quote!

I contacted the London Wine Cellar following the inheritance of some whiskey. At first I was unsure if this would be of interest to them. However having made contact with London Wine Cellar via WhatsApp and I asked for a valuation. I sent then a few pictures of the whiskey and gathered some constructive feedback and from the moment I made that contact I had a really positive level of communication with Tim. And within 48 hours he was at my property and incredibly professional in his approach. He was honest throughout and gave me valid reasons for the valuation, explained the process and the market for whiskey and transferred the purchase price over within the hour of arriving at my property. Despite the fact I had numerous bottles of whiskey, Tim was exemplary in his approach and made a daunting process very accessible for a complete amateur. I would recommend anyone with whiskey in their possession and looking to sell to contact Tim and his team as they provide an outstanding service. Thank you for all your support.

As per all the other reviews a very good experience - Made contact with Timothy on the Thursday for an assortment of wines both by the case and many single bottles. I had a quote on the Friday that I thought was very reasonable. The wines were picked up on the Monday in the time slot I was given and payment was made Today. Much easier than selling wine at auction. Highly recommended.

Fast, expert and pleasant service. I only sold two bottles, but I was as courteously treated as though I had a whole cellar to sell. The whole process was extremely easy and they gave us a good price. Thank you!
