Sell Your Wine To Us
Although this site is mainly concerned with what Farr Vintners has for sale, we are just as keen to buy as we are to sell. We turn over about twice as much wine as our nearest UK competitor and consideraby more than the London auction houses combined. Consequently, we are often looking for new stocks and are interested in purchasing full cases of any top quality fine wine that has been well cellared. Odd bottles of especially rare wines may also be of interest. Bordeaux wine of Classed Growth quality is our main area of interest but we will consider buying wines from all the other regions that you will see featured on this site. Please note that we can only consider buying wines with a total value of £500 or above.
We can arrange collection from cellars in the UK and Western Europe and our aim is to make it as straightforward and as profitable as possible for you to sell your wine through Farr Vintners. We offer two ways of doing this:
- You can check our current selling prices on this web site. In most cases we will be pleased to list your wines at these prices. When the wines are sold we deduct a 10% commission which means that you receive 90% of the selling price. There are no other deductions for VAT, storage or insurance whilst we are selling the wine. Please note, however, that any existing storage charges due must be settled before we can agree to sell wine on your behalf. Please also note that this applies to wines with a value of £200 per case or over. There is a flat rate of £20 commission for wines below this value.
- We are also happy to purchase wines for an outright cash price, depending on market conditions. This is normally at our current list prices (as shown on this site) less approximately 20%. Please call or e-mail us for a cash on delivery valuation. Our expert staff can take care of all arrangements such as bond transfers, collections, condition reports, re-packing and valuations.
Please contact Thomas Parker, Tom Hudson, Oliver East or Stephen Browett if you have any stocks that you might consider selling. No one in the UK buys more fine wine than Farr Vintners and this is because we offer an unrivalled service, buy at the correct market prices and make sure that payment is sent exactly on time.
