At Falcon Vintners, we’re always looking to purchase well-cellared fine wines especially older vintages. We have included a list of our most sought-after wines at the bottom of this section.
We welcome lists from private and trade sources. Stocks must be lying in Europe and should not have left Europe.
We have two ways of selling your wine:
Our broking service allows you to maximize your return as you get 90% of the sales price. We mutually agree a current market price for your wines and aim to sell them as quickly as possible and our commission is only 10%.
Clients have the choice to keep the wines in their possession while we offer them or we can hold them on your behalf at our account at London City Bond. The wines remain the property of the client until paid for in full by Falcon Vintners. The wines are also covered by full replacement insurance whilst at London City Bond. There are no storage or insurance charges while client’s wines are being offered.
Falcon Vintners also makes cash purchases for our most sought-after wines (listing below). The price will generally be around 20% under our list price. Prices will depend on market conditions as well as the condition of the wines being purchased.
This list is by no means complete but will highlight our main areas of interest:
