Fine Wines since 1988
Langton’s is Australia’s leading fine wine marketplace. While it began as a specialist wine auction house, Langton’s now also embraces a comprehensive online wine business together with a private wine broking operation. Langton’s links customers with extended networks of winery cellar doors from across Australia and around the world. Wine can be delivered to customers direct from the source.
Langton’s was founded Melbourne in 1988 with a Sydney office opening the following year. What set Langton’s apart from the outset was our passion and belief in Australian fine wines. Our first Classification of Fine Wine in 1991 was a genuine innovation. Since then it has become the ultimate form guide to local fine wines. It was followed up with the internationally respected Langton’s Fine Wine Buying and Investment Guide, now in its 5th edition.
Langton’s was instrumental in developing the secondary (auction) market for Australian wine and in building the Australian market for fine imported wines. Langton’s was also a key player in the extraordinary success of Penfolds Grange and other elite Australian wines. Indeed, when Penfolds began its Red Wine Recorking program in 1991, Langton’s was on hand to provide Grange owners with independent advice. This relationship continues.
In 2011, Langton’s, now owned by Woolworths, turned another corner with the acquisition of a Brokerage Team which provides customers with exclusive one-on-one service and access to extended networks of cellar doors across Australia and around the world.
Today with the release of a new website and trading platform, a new generation of wine buyers participates in a massively-expanded market that operates 24/7.
