Selling Wine in Online Auctions: any experiences?

famdoc | | Jan 19, 2008 08:02 AM

I buy most of my wine vineyard-direct and I'm afraid my addiction has gotten out of hand. My cellar now contains wine I can't possibly drink in this lifetime and I'd like to thin out my holdings. Does anyone have any personal experience selling individual bottles or small lots through any online auction sites? I have about 50 bottles of California and Washington State wines, many highly-rated, purchased from small producers. I'd like not to take a financial drubbing on them (most are in the $25-50 price range).

If you've sold wine online, share your experiences, particularly with specific site's commissions, prices realized, reliability of getting paid, method of shipment, etc.

thanks in advance!
