Sell your Wine with Sotheby's

By Sotheby's


At Sotheby's Wine, we pride ourselves on the breadth of our selection of mature and rare wines available both at auction and at retail, in addition to younger wines for investment or that need further cellaring. We are always seeking opportunities to source these wines, so if you have well-stored wine, in excellent condition and with impeccable provenance, we would be delighted to help you sell it.


In particular, we are interested in:

  • Top Bordeaux
  • Finest red and white Burgundy
  • Cult Californian wines
  • Italy: Barolo, Barbaresco and Super Tuscans
  • Others such as old and rare Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Hermitage and Côte Rôtie, Vintage Champagne and Port


We auction wine in London, New York and Hong Kong. We are currently inviting consignments for auctions in the following locations and dates:

  • London: 11 July 2018
  • New York: 8 September 2018
  • Hong Kong: 29 September 2018


If you are a US-based collector, we may also offer to purchase your wines outright, for re-sale in our New York based retail business; or if you are an Asia or Europe-based collector, we may offer to purchase your wine outright, for re-sale in our Hong Kong based retail business. This is not a consignment model like the auction business; instead we offer immediate cash payment upon receipt of the wines. We look for the same kinds of wines at retail, as we do at auction.
