Could someone recommend to me a good wine auction site...

and also, what has been your experience of buying wine from these sites?

Basically, I wouldn't have occasioned buying from such a site before, but whilst on the internet last evening I stumbled across one such site and they were selling a rare bottle of wine that costs significantly more from local wine merchants (that's assuming they can even get ahold of one).

Thanks for your thoughts,

Andrew.

Wine auction site recommendations.

If you want to buy,

www.brentwoodwine.com
www.winebid.com

If you want to sell,

try your local high end retailer first.

Good luck,

Mark.

What do you think of TCWC?

Hi, Andrew, Mark.

The Chicago Wine Company was a pioneer in the online auction market for wines. Are they still active?

Regards,

TM

I bought my '89 Pichon-Lalande from them at a great price several years ago. However, I have noticed that their reserve prices have steadily crept up and, with my move to California, have found that I could purchase older vintages locally. When I had to purchase a wine at auction, I have now come to prefer Brentwoodwines.com, firstly, and then winebid.com, secondly.

Mark.
