Forthcoming Online Auctions

Wine Online | 22 – 26 July

After the immense success of our last live and online auctions, we are looking for consignments for our forthcoming sales.

To best express why you should offer your collections, we let our vendors do the talking…

“Thank you very much Marcus! It was so much fun watching our wines going under the hammer, it was actually quite addictive, I couldn’t stop watching online. It is very interesting to see how some people were interested in those older NZ wines. I only wish that my late husband and I had bought more in the past!”
– Julie, Mahurangi West

“Thanks so much for handling and selling our “old wines!” Following Marcus’ clear instructions, getting our pallet-load of wines packed and freighted from Nelson to Auckland was seamless and effortless. We were delighted with the prices that our “old wines” went for though your auction system. Thanks again.”
– Derek, Nelson

The timing has never been better to consider auction as the most lucrative way to sell your wine. Contact us today for a complimentary appraisal.

Cheers! | Santé! | Sláinte! | Egészségére! | 饮胜! | 干杯!
