Wine valuation

Our wine valuation service

In a small margin industry wine companies often get themselves into trouble by over promising and under delivering. Over the past 6 years, The London Wine cellar has built an impeccable reputation, becoming one of the UK’s best known wine buyers because it simply does exactly what it says it will do, exactly when it says it will do it.

Our experienced team have worked hard to build an enviable network of global buyers and sellers, meaning we’re strategically placed to provide the most efficient and dependable wine valuation and wine buying service in the UK.

Our wine valuation service is proudly individual; each valuation, large or small, is carefully hand managed by one of our team. We do not only use the very best, up-to-date global market data, but the competitive prices we offer to our clients also benefit from our ever-expanding network of industry contacts.

Importantly, we never use automated services — our in-house experts are there to provide you with a personalised quote. Therefore, our valuations are not just ‘quotes’ but also a firm commitment to purchase your goods. When you receive an offer from The London Wine Cellar, the price quoted is the NET figure you will actually receive into your bank account — no empty promises.

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.

To start the process you can fill in our quick online form, or if you prefer you can give us a call, send us a message through our WhatsApp feature or just drop by for a chat.

Fine Wine Valuation Online

How much is my wine worth?

It’s not always easy to judge the value of your wines, since this is affected by a variety of factors. Below are just a few of the things we look for at The London Wine Cellar, but you can always contact us for a professional valuation.

  • Vintage

    Research the year your wine was bottled with a quick online search to see if it’s likely to be a valuable vintage.

  • Storage

    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 and turned to vinegar).

  • Packaging

    Retaining the original wooden or cardboard box, especially with older wines, can add as much as 15% value to the case.

  • Appearance

    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.

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.

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 ...
