While Domaine is the United States’ most trusted wine storage company, you may not know that we’re also leaders in helping collectors sell their wines. Our team of Advisory experts have decades of combined experience in the auction, retail and private collection markets, which we leverage to personalize a strategy for anything you’re looking to sell. With Domaine, you don’t have to worry about whether or not you’re earning the most for your bottles, which markets to use or how to navigate the selling process.
Simply send us a list of what you’d like to sell and any goals you may have, and we’ll get back to you with a plan.
DOMAINE’S RETAIL STORE, CELLAR TRADING
As our storage clients know, Domaine is a fully licensed online retailer of fine and rare wines and spirits. Our online store, Cellar Trading, has an exciting, diverse and ever-changing inventory that runs the gamut from blue chips and unicorn bottles, to daily drinkers and fan favorites, to everything in between—and often at the best prices on the internet. Our popular Friday List email offers go out weekly, showcasing our most exciting new arrivals. And of course, every bottle is carefully inspected prior to listing.
By selling with Cellar Trading, we offer flat commission rates, incredible exposure (including Wine-Searcher listings) and among the industry’s fastest payouts upon sale.
The most famous channel for selling wine is the auction market—but it’s just as famously the most complicated. Before even getting into the fee structures, commissions, schedules, inspections, provenance tracking and other fine print, you may not realize that the first step is actually the most important: choosing the right auction house for your wines. And how do you do that? Put simply, expertise.
Domaine’s longstanding relationships with every major auction house mean we help you maximize your net returns, and also do all the complicated work for you. From preliminary inspection and pack-up to contract negotiations, we’re here to streamline the process so you can keep your focus on enjoying your collection.
Domaine’s nationwide network of storage facilities means we also have one of the United States’ largest wine collecting communities. When we receive sale lists from clients—whether a single rare bottle, an entire collection or anything in between—we already have an idea who in our network might be looking for those wines, and can broker anonymous transactions through our retail license. Just like wines being sold in our online store on consignment, every bottle is inspected prior to sale, so all sides can rest easy.
Which route(s) your wines go depends on what you’re looking to sell, but no matter what, you’ll be guided by some of the industry’s best. We love opportunities to share our expertise and passion for wine with you, and look forward to supporting you and your collection.
