UKV operate a fine wine Valuation and Brokerage Service should you wish to sell your wine. Our wine brokers can offer a number of options to give you the optimum choice when selling, with a free no obligation valuation of your wine before any final decision is made to place your wine on the market.*
We can list your wine on our wine stock list at an agreed minimum price and market your wine through our Broking Service and website until sold for a set commission of 10% of the completed sale price. **
We will obtain an independent valuation on your wine through our network of Merchants and Wine Brokers to obtain an unbiased market value from a third party. We will relay the best of these offers for your consideration before offering your wine sale to any buyer. ***
UKV are always interested in buying good quality wine to add to our existing stock,
should you own wine in bond that you wish to sell, please call us for a free valuation. You may wish to opt for a straight sale, where UKV purchase your wine direct from you at current trade value. In this instance, we will value your wine and make a fair offer based on what the same wine could be purchased, from a trade supplier at the time of valuation.
*In all instances when wine is being sold through our Brokerage Service, we will need this stock to be transferred into our bonded trade account to verify the condition, this will include, the actual case, labels on the bottles and the wine level in the neck of each bottle before we can offer a wine for sale and place any stock on the open market.
**Our broking commission of 10% is reduced to 2.5% for existing clients regardless of if the wine being offered was purchased from UKV our commission is based on the full sale price of the wine.
***Should you chose to sell your wine through our broking network we will make a minimum charge of £500.00 for conducting the transaction.
