To bid on a lot, enter the maximum bid you would be happy to pay for the item. We use an incremental bidding system which you can find out more about here. If you are outbid, we will automatically notify you by email. If the auction has not yet ended you will be able to increase your maximum bid should you wish.
Please make sure that you have fully examined the lot carefully before you place your bid.
Our auctions end from 7PM (BST) on the closing date specified on our current auction page. Once 7PM is reached, bidding activity on any item will continue to prolong the ENTIRE auction by a further two minutes. Therefore, the auction will only finish if 7PM has passed, and there has been a two-minute period where no bids have been placed on any bottle across the entire auction.
If you have successfully won a lot, we will notify you automatically by email.
Upon winning a lot, payment is required immediately before dispatch/collection. Our website features a quick and easy check-out process which will direct you to a secure payment page.
Please see our terms and conditions for more information.
Once payment is received, we aim to deliver as soon as possible. We provide worldwide shipping (prices found here) as well as Loss & Breakage Assurance shipping options, free collection from our office in Perth and complimentary storage for up to three months.
