Maybe you haven't thought about it, wine auctions are now big business, both are offline because you might also already know online and are increasingly popular.
Bidders are private companies, who want to get rid of their grapes, wineries, charity productions, and of course, enthusiastic people looking for offers!
The auction estimates that the wine auction market continues but has stopped this year. Wine auctions are the best way to find hard-to-find wine pickers.
Because of the publicity given to the most expensive and oldest wine bottles sold at auctions, most consumers view wine auctions as an event for lovers and very wealthy people, let me tell you that it's far from the truth!
Some of the most publicized wine auctions are for charity, where you as an individual can give gifts to charities and receive a bottle of excellent wine in return. Wine auctions are held right away just like you see in the movies, great fun. Most wine auctions are a comfortable affair; 70% of winning bids usually come from trading, so there is 30% up for grabs at cheap prices for people like you and me.
With people of good deeds who are willing to bid thousands for a bottle of precious wine, wine auctions are quickly becoming an excellent way to raise funds for local charities.
But the beauty of online wine auctions is the availability of "hammer" prices after the auction ends and you can search the database to find the selling prices of all the wines sold. This will give you great knowledge every time you go to a live wine auction both online and offline.
