Authenticated, Trusted Wine Buying for the Savvy Wine Lover

There are 4 ways to bid at our live sales, whether you can be at the auction in person or not:

  • In the room, at 67 Pall Mall, London *suspended due to COVID*
  • By telephone, we’ll call you at the time of the lots you are interested in
  • Leaving a commission bid in advance online or by emailing us (we bid for you, up to your maximum figure)
  • Bid live online using our bidding platform, streamed live to the internet

Buyer’s Commission  
Successful bids will be subject to a buyer’s commission charge of 15%+VAT on all purchases.

We also run timed-online sales through our bidding platform where a lot is available to bid on, up until a defined deadline. It’s a very simple online way to bid for the wine you are interested in buying. Unlike e-bay, there’s no sniping allowed, the sales will automatically extend if a new bid is placed within 2 minutes of the auction ending, everyone gets a fair chance to buy the lot they are looking for.

Collection and Delivery  
All our lots are held at Locke King Vaults, the fine wine storage facility of EHD London. Collection of lots is from the goods out office at EHD Sunbury (EHD London No.1 Bond Ltd, Unit E, Dolphin Estate, Windmill Road, Sunbury, TW16 7HE). As all lots need to be picked and made ready, we need minimum of 24 hours notice for collection (work days) with a cut-off time of 12.00 for following business day.

We do not deliver ourselves, however we can help you to arrange UK delivery through EHD. This is done on their own vehicles in London and through third party couriers outside London. We can also help you arrange In Bond transfers within the UK, if required. The link to the EHD transport tariff is here – please note the policies on insurance. Extra insurance can be purchased. You are also very welcome to arrange your own courier to collect. The buyer is responsible for any other arrangements. For overseas deliveries we recommend Davies Turner Air Cargo, Connoisseur International or DHL.  

It’s important that you understand the full terms & conditions for buying through an auction. Please read these before bidding.
