The first step in selling your wine is to find out how much it is worth. Langton’s

wine at no cost or obligation. We encourage all prospective sellers to value their
wine and then send in their lists using Langton’s consignment form. You can find

at Auction house reserves are in place against all lots.
On our Exchange the seller sets the price. All Exchange wine sells by the case at
the fixed price you have set. You can respond to market interest and contact us
at any time to adjust the price.
