Receive your free comprehensive wine valuation
Research the year your wine was produced with a quick online search, the value of a particular Chateau can vary wildly from vintage to vintage.
Check the level of wine in the bottle to see how well it has weathered its years of storage (ullage can be a sign that wine has oxidised).
Retaining the original wooden or cardboard box, especially with older wines, can add as much as 15% value to the case.
A bit of wear and tear on an old bottle of wine is to be expected, but it’s always worth checking any really extensive damage, like the complete loss of a label, an exposed cork, visible capsule rust or signs of historic leakage.
Obligation free wine valuation
All valuations come entirely free of obligation, and we’ve designed our business so that it’s just as easy to receive your valuation as it is to arrange the collection or transfer of your wines.
We are pleased to facilitate cellar purchases of any size up to the value of £1 million per transaction. We are able to operate immediate (same day) settlement terms for wines that we can physically inspect. For wines being sent to our shop or warehouse, payment is always made upon receipt and inspection of goods.
Above all, our processes are designed to be transparent, so you can expect open communication from our team each step of the way. There are no hidden charges or costs — and provided we have seen the condition of the goods we’ll never try to change or ‘negotiate’ your original quote.
We take a huge amount of time and care over the valuation phase so that our clients never get an unpleasant surprise when it comes to payday; our 5 star Google rating would suggest this was a good principle to build the company on.
