Why buy wine through Wine Owners
Buy fine wine from collectors
Collectors keep wine for long periods of time. This means fine wine offered for sale by wine collectors has been regularly kept in the same storage since it was first purchased and not traded repeatedly though the secondary market.
"I first came across WO when looking for a cellar management tool and was attracted to its functionality, information content and easy to use interface. Over time I have increasingly used the platform to buy and sell wines. The quality of bids and offers continues to improve which along with competitive transaction costs and excellent execution makes Wine owners a really valuable service for any wine enthusiast."Mark C.
Best value wine
No merchant or broker margin means you’re buying wine at best value. Thanks to very low commissions, prices are frequently exceptionally competitive, assuring the buyer and seller both get a good deal.
Look for duty paid bargains to enjoy: there's no VAT payable on duty paid stock when buying from private individuals, making duty paid fine wine 20% less expensive.
Extraordinary range of fine wine
Because you have direct access to private cellars, you can buy older vintages and rarities that may be hard to come by anywhere else.
Discover one of the world’s most diverse wine lists that means you can buy all sorts of interesting under-the-radar and esoteric wines as well as the classics".
"I have always preferred to buy wines to drink rather than to store. Unfortunately, this is becoming harder on the UK market so finding a platform that offers a wide selection of wines particularly from more mature or harder to find vintages is great."John A.
Price discovery informs wine buyers
Buy with peace of mind: every wine offered for sale shows our estimate of current market value, recent traded prices and offers from other trusted sources. Never has wine buying been so transparent.
Finding it hard to find the wine you’d love to buy? Place a bid for that may be find hard to refuse and see if your bid is matched with an offer for sale of that wine.
Buy older vintages
With en primeur and new releases becoming increasingly expensive, it’s time to look at previous vintages to find better value. More mature vintages are often relative bargains compared with the latest releases, and Wine Owners has an unbeatable choice.
Why not exchange some of your more recent releases with wines that are ready to drink now? Make sure you have enough mature wines in your cellar to enjoy now with friends and over the coming years. It often takes much longer than you think for the world's finest wines to reach enjoyable, glorious maturity.
Save time: everything you buy or sell on Wine Owners automatically updates your portfolio and gets assigned into the correct cellar, helping you stay on top of your wine collection and firmly in control.
"As a passionate collector and drinker of wine ... Wine Owners has enabled me to fill in some of the gaps in my cellar in the Rhone, Burgundy and Italy with some excellent wines, for drinking now or cellaring, at highly competitive prices."Anthony T.
