Which wines are suitable for sale?

How much is my wine worth? Determine the value of your wine collection
When you sell your wine, you certainly want to know what its value is. Age alone does not automatically make wine valuable. The value depends on various factors, such as the country of origin, the region, the grape variety and the reputation of the winemaker or winery. The vintage plays a crucial role - wines from top years usually fetch higher prices.
Storage conditions also influence the value of the wine. Wines that have been stored in optimal conditions in the cellar tend to be more valuable than those that have been stored elsewhere. The condition of the cork, capsule, and label is also important in getting the best possible price. Before you sell your wine, you should determine the value of your wine collection.

Guidelines for the successful sale of wine
If you're looking to sell your wine collection, there are some crucial factors to consider:
Condition inspection before selling the bottles:
- Check the fill level of the bottles.
- Make sure labels are in good condition and fully legible.
- Examine the capsule for greasy deposits that may indicate leaking corks.
Special considerations for dry white wines:
- Pay attention to the clarity and brightness of the color.
- A brown tint or cloudiness in white Burgundies may indicate oxidation, which is why we may have to decline a wine purchase, or a price reduction will result.
Through a purchase offer, we can gladly assist you in an evaluation of your old wines.
Origin of the wine - An essential aspect for quality
The provenance of a wine is of vital importance when selling it. Ideally, you should have the original invoices of the bottles for sale.
This offers several advantages:
- Transparent valuation: You know the original purchase price and can more easily recognize dubious offers when selling wine.
- Authenticity and aging time: You can prove that you are the rightful owner of the bottles and document how long the wine was in your possession.
Serious wine dealers and serious collectors usually show little interest in wines that have changed hands several times. A first-hand wine, documented by invoices, is far more valuable and sells better than an old bottle whose origin and storage conditions are unknown.

Temperature: The room should always remain cool. Even in summer the temperature should not exceed 18°C, and in winter should not fall below 5°C.
Darkness: Wine bottles are sensitive to light, so the cellar should be dark to avoid undesirable effects on the wine.
Humidity: The humidity in the cellar should be between 70 and 80% to protect the cork and the wine from drying out.
