Belmont Wine Exchange® has extensive experience buying and selling fine wines. Let our knowledgeable staff help you obtain the best return for your wine collection. Whether you choose to consign or sell outright, no collection is too large or small for consideration. Please contact BWE's acquisitions department via email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (510) 887-9463 for a free appraisal.
If you are interested in selling some or all of your wines outright, BWE will prepare an offer and will pay immediately upon receipt and review of the wine. In most cases, same day direct deposit is available.
Consignments offer potentially a greater return. The advantages of consigning with BWE are:
We charge 18% commission.
Unlike auction houses where you may wait for more than three months for payment, BWE mails your check on the first day of each month for all wines sold the previous month. Included in this mailing is a detailed report identifying the wines sold and those remaining.
Since all wine BWE sells must be stored at our facility, we provide shipping labels at our discounted rate. These costs are withheld from consigned sales, so you pay nothing upfront.
We work with you to set a mutually agreed upon price for your wines based on our knowledge of the current market.
We will photograph and provide suitable ratings and reviews (if available) of your wines. All wines will be promoted on BWE's website, inventory list, and promotional e-mails.
All wines are safe with us and are kept under constant surveillance in a secured and alarmed on-site storage facility, maintained under ideal climate controlled (55°F/70% humidity) conditions.
As a consignor, you may, at any time:
° Offer your wines for direct sale to BWE;
° Readjust the list price; and/or
° Have any unsold wines returned, without administrative fees
(Consignor pays for return shipping cost)
