This is an acceptance of items for the next auction to be held in June 2023.
          The deadline for submitting an item is March 31 (upon receipt).


You can save time in the valuation process by providing us with a list of your wines (in any format, e.g. Excel, handwritten, etc.).
We will assess the current market price, inform you of the valuation and suggest the best way to sell your wine according to your requirements.

    Opening of the auction catalogue and preview meeting

    Once an auction item has been selected, a catalogue is produced and sent out to enthusiasts throughout the country. We also publish the information on the web and start selling to auctioneers both at home and abroad.
    A pre-auction viewing will then be held, where the auctioneer can hold the item in his or her hands and check its condition in person. The previews are free and open to the public and are attended by specialist dealers and collectors.

    At the auction, each item is carefully auctioned off in front of hundreds of participants in person, in writing, by phone or by app.
