The world of Fine and Rare Wine
Let WineAdvise care for your best
Sell with us
WineAdvise offers a full range of options to sell your wine. Selling wine does not need to be difficult and WineAdvise strives to make it as efficient as possible and take the work out of your hands.
WineAdvise works with you to determine what to sell by providing a free valuation of what you would expect to net. We work with you to determine your goals and choose the right method for selling. You choose what to sell and what not to sell to give you time to adjust your collection whether to make room for new wine, changing tastes or in the event of a life change.
We utilize 3 primary methods depending on your goals.
1) Consignment – WineAdvise has a retail license and can consign your wines through our large network of partners, clients and online sales. This method nets you the most, but takes a bit longer.
2) Brokerage – We utilize our large network of collectors, fine wine retailers and industry channels to net you the highest cash offer for a quick close and guaranteed price.
3) Auction – We assess your collection to determine if auction is right for you. In most cases, auction may not be the best plan as the process can be long, net you what you might expect with consignment or a cash sale, and no guarantee. However, with large collections and top wines, auction may be a good option and our relationships with the top houses ensure you receive the best return.
