Wine: Auction & Retail

Overview

Sotheby's Wine business comprises the most experienced and successful team in wine auctioning. Sotheby’s has been selling wine in London since 1970, in New York since 1994 and in Hong Kong since 2009. The department takes pride in offering only wine in the best condition and with excellent provenance, and the team’s well-earned reputation has attracted many of the most prestigious collectors and discriminating buyers in the world.

In May 2009, we combined our retail and auction wine businesses under the “Sotheby’s Wine” name. With a retail store in the lobby of the Sotheby’s New York offices as well as a complementary website, we offer a full range of buying and selling services across both channels, and are able to sell in any quantity at a fixed price and for immediate delivery, in addition to our regular auctions. Sotheby’s Wine is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sotheby’s Inc.

For sellers, Sotheby's offers the option of both auction and private sales. We provide proposals to prospective consignors on how to maximize the value of your wine, and we arrange to ship your wine to our temperature-controlled warehouse where we offer complimentary storage until their sale.

Buyers can be confident that all the wines Sotheby's offers have been carefully inspected by our experienced specialists. We are happy to provide advice on cellar management as well as make recommendations on wines for investment, laying down or current drinking.

Sotheby’s Wine department holds over 20 sales each year in London, New York and Hong Kong.

SOTHEBY'S UPDATE REGARDING KURNIAWAN CASE: Sotheby's has not accepted any consignment of wine in any of its worldwide selling locations from Mr. Kurniawan, either under his name or a known alias.
