Get Started

Register on our site

Registering a user account with Wine Auctioneer will always be free!  Our registration form can be found at the bottom of this page.  While the process is fairly straightforward, we are always able to provide support as required.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.


Deliver your bottles

We require that all items are brought or sent directly to Wine Auctioneer at:  

Wine Auctioneer Ltd, 
West Building, Ruthvenfield Grove
Inveralmond Industrial Estate
United Kingdom

When sending or delivering bottles or cases, please include a note with your name, address, email and any reserve values you would like to have placed.


Courier Collection - quick and easy to organise

Courier collection may be organised with ease.  We are able to provide packaging materials to facilitate safe transit of your items, however a cost of £5.00 per item shall be applied, plus delivery charge equivalent to 1 bottle to your region.  If packing items yourself, please use a strong cardboard box and plenty of protective material such as bubble-wrap or air-pockets.  Please be aware that couriers do not insure against breakages, therefore the seller is fully responsible for packaging bottles properly and securely.

Wine Auctioneer is strictly not liable for items damaged in transit to us.

Wine Auctioneer Collection

We frequently travel throughout the UK and can arrange a personal collection from you.  We may apply a minimum bottle requirement or mileage charge.  Please contact us directly if this is of interest to you. Find out about our upcoming collection dates here.

You can Deliver

Our office is open Monday to Saturday 09:00-17:00.

Confirm lots

Once Wine Auctioneer has taken receipt of your items, our team of experts will assess bottle condition and, if acceptable, confirm lots to be listed in our following auction.  We will accept mixed-case Lots only to a maximum of 6 bottles (subject to additional fee, as below).

Watch lots

While you are logged into your account and the auction is live, you will be able to follow the progress of your items through your "Selling Lots" section.


Upon completion of our auction and your items are sold, payment shall be made to sellers within 21 business days.  Please note our Terms And Conditions regarding payments made to sellers.


We can arrange collection of bottles and cases from many countries outwith the UK - please contact us for information and pricing.

If a lot fails to meet your optional reserve price and therefore does not sell, we can arrange for your items to be relisted in subsequent auctions (subject to fees) or arrange return delivery (subject to delivery charge).

Please Note: Due to new Minimum Unit Pricing legislation in Scotland, we have introduced starting bids of £5 PER BOTTLE of table wine and £8 PER BOTTLE of fortified wine.  Large-format bottles and multi-bottle Lots will feature starting bids values respective to their increased volume.  With exception of sweet wines, we do not accept consignments of small-format bottles.

We reserve the right to reject any bottles which we judge to be either in unsuitable condition, of questionable authenticity or are unlikely to achieve legally-required minimum prices.  Return delivery of rejected bottles shall be available at the seller's expense.
