This competition closes 31st March 2020.

This competition is sponsored by Bacchus Wine Auctions. Bacchus was set up in 2016 by Chris Hambleton, to be the wine auctioneer you can trust.

With 20 years experience in all aspects of the wine trade and as a collector of fine wines himself, Chris says he was “tired of seeing unscrupulous practice by both brokers and auction houses, with high fees for buyers and sellers, and with generalists claiming to be specialists in wine.”

Today, Bacchus Wine Auctions is the UK’s only full service auction house dedicated to fine wine and spirits. Their services include honest and expert appraisal of your collection’s condition and value, and with their specialist expertise, this agile business brings something new to the UK scene for buyers and sellers, aiming to bring the joy of wine ownership to beginners and experts alike.

Live auctions take place regularly at the prestigious 67 Pall Mall Wine Club in London, but are also broadcast live online, so you can participate from the comfort of your home or office. Buyer fees are just 12.5% plus VAT of the hammer price (while the big three auction houses charge 21% – 22.5%) and Seller fees range from 15% down to just 2.5%, depending on the value of lots consigned. Bacchus also offer a mix of cases and smaller lots, opening up the auction experience to a much wider audience.

2020 wil see more timed online sales in between the live events, and another innovation for the Bacchus community will be ‘Icon Fridays’ – online sales of iconic bottles that every wine lover will want to own.
