Where do I sell my wine?
Your wine will be sold through their weekly online auctions. All wine sold through Langton’s is held in their temperature-controlled, state-of-the-art warehouse facility in Hoppers Crossing, Victoria. All items are inspected, catalogued and photographed. Once your items are listed in your account, they will be moved into an upcoming auction. This process is managed by the Langton’s auction team. You will receive confirmed auction details at least 24 hours before the auction is set to open.
How much does it cost to sell my wine with Langton’s?
Langton’s don’t charge anything unless your wine sells, upon which a seller’s commission of 15.00% (inc. GST) is charged. Your wine will be stored free of charge in our temperature-controlled, state-of-the-art warehouse facility until it is sold.
When will I see my wines listed for sale?
Once your wines are received at our warehouse, they will be inspected, catalogued, photographed and then confirmed by our quality assurance team. Please allow up to 21 days from the date of delivery for the listing to go up for auction online. You will receive notification of your scheduled auction at least 24 hours before it is set to open. Please use this time to review your listings.
Can I apply a reserve price to my items?
The reserve is the minimum price that your wines will sell for. If the reserve is not met, the wine will pass in. Langton’s house reserve is in place by default and will be visible to you once your wines are listed. You can adjust the reserve up to the low estimate in your account. If your wine is valued at a low estimate of $20 or less, only house reserve is available. Once the auction has gone live, you will not be able to adjust your reserve.
Can I withdraw my bottles from the auction?
They can organise to return your wines to you upon request prior to the auction going live. A delivery charge will be invoiced. Wine listings cannot be withdrawn from the live auction.
What happens if my wine doesn’t sell?
Wines that pass in at auction will become a second chance offer for 24 hours, available to bidders who have shown interest. If unsold after the second chance period, your wines will be relisted in a future auction. They can organise to return your unsold wines, upon request, prior to an auction going live. A delivery charge will be invoiced.
