About Us

Experience Sotheby’s Wine
Sotheby’s Wine offers a selection of the world’s best wines for every palate and occasion. Whether you are an adventurous collector or are simply in search of a fine bottle to serve at your next dinner party, we invite you to explore our range or enlist the advice of our trusted team of specialists.

Visit our Hong Kong retail location at 5/F One Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, for an exciting selection of well-priced bottles for immediate consumption, or investment-grade cases to add to your collection. We also have a retail location in New York; with an online store; and auctions in Hong Kong, New York, and London.

Our Approach
You can depend on Sotheby’s to offer a comprehensive range of wines at all price points, in pristine condition with impeccable provenance, from the best producers in the world’s top winemaking regions. Our selection is chosen with both the casual enthusiast and the experienced collector in mind.

When you wish to purchase a gift, acquire a small selection for a house party or business event, or build a portfolio for investment, we will be delighted to advise you on everything from dinner pairings to the best storage for your wine.

The success of the Sotheby’s Wine retail business is attributable to our exacting standards and uncompromising approach in selecting a full range of wine from the least expensive to the most expensive. This discernable difference is based on our team’s tasting experience and our relationships with owners and winemakers.

Selection & Tasting
To earn a coveted spot on our retail shelves, each wine has been stringently selected based on its superb taste, excellent value, and representation of the region from which it originates.

The Sotheby’s Wine team regularly visits the world’s finest wine-producing areas and we enjoy spending time with winemakers, many of whom have become trusted colleagues and friends.
Our preferences are reflected in our range which frequently features our favorite chateaux, domaines and wineries.

We offer only carefully authenticated, highly enjoyable wines. While we focus our attention on buying from the best producers, we also spend time in search of wines from less well-known producers that offer exceptional value.
Before we commit ourselves to recommend a wine, it must pass our “three-glass” tasting guideline. That is, since a standard bottle, often shared by two people, holds the equivalent of six glasses of wine, our tasters must like it enough to want to drink three glasses.

Inspection
To ensure that our entire selection is authentic and in excellent condition, our specialists inspect every bottle of wine that is not purchased directly from a winery or through a direct importer/wholesaler.

Pricing and Discounts
Because we procure our wide range of wines at competitive prices and sell them at attractive prices, we typically do not offer discounts.

Service
Our knowledgeable team knows and enjoys wine. In fact, our business is our passion. Sotheby’s Wine provides prompt, efficient and courteous service within our retail locations and online. We aim to ship each order within 24 hours, using high-quality, insulated shipping materials, as long as the weather is neither too warm nor too cold.

Eco-Friendly
On a daily basis, whether buying a new delivery van, sourcing gift card stock or reviewing our packing materials and stationery, we make every effort to select the most cost-effective, “green” options available. For example, our cardboard boxes are made of 60-percent recycled paper, which is the highest content available for a sturdy product. We continually search for eco-friendly options, so please do share your innovative ideas with us.
