How our Wine Valuations & Quotations are Generated

Finding and comparing fine wine prices can be a confusing and laborious process that requires considerable amounts of patience, knowledge, and time. We recognised that there was a lack of access to accurate, reliable and transparent prices for fine wine collectors, wine investors, and wine enthusiasts who wish to value their wine collection. This is how our Online Wine Quotation Tool came into being.

Our online Wine Valuation and Quotation Tool reviews live fine wine market prices collected by our own bespoke database against those provided by other reliable industry sources, such as Liv-Ex and Wine-Searcher. Once the tool has found the most current market value for the wine, it then uses a robust methodology and proprietary algorithms to generate a transparent and accurate quotation that displays the final amount you would receive if you sold your wine with JF Tobias.

What’s included in your Online Valuation and Quotation?

Achieving the best-in-class solution to value and quote for wine online, our tool provides our clients with an accurate view of the total market value of their wines, as well as two indicative quotes of what they would achieve if they sold their wines with JF Tobias.

The Total Market Value

Collected from live market prices this is the current or most recently available trading value of your wine; these prices do not include sales tax, VAT and duty, as our prices assume that the wine is stored in a bonded warehouse.

The Indicative Cash and Broking Offers

These offers include all commisions and costs related to the collection, transfer, and condition reports of the wines Both of these offers are the net amount you will receive. You can read more about the differences between our cash and broking offers here.

These quotations should only be used to give yourself an idea of what you could receive. Before we agree to buy your wine, we will double check the live market prices, and review our quotations to make sure they are the best they can be.

Note: Our online valuations and quotations make the assumption that the wines are in perfect condition and are stored in a bonded warehouse, if not, then further discounts may be applied. Please refer to our Wine Inspection Guidelines for more information.
