Fine Wines since 1988
Langtonâ€™s is Australiaâ€™s leading fine wine marketplace. While it began as a specialist wine auction house, Langtonâ€™s now also embraces a comprehensive online wine business together with a private wine broking operation. Langtonâ€™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.
Langtonâ€™s was founded in Melbourne in 1988 with a Sydney office opening the following year. What set Langtonâ€™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 Langtonâ€™s Fine Wine Buying and Investment Guide, now in its 5th edition.
Langtonâ€™s was instrumental in developing the secondary (auction) market for Australian wine and in building the Australian market for fine imported wines. Langtonâ€™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, Langtonâ€™s was on hand to provide Grange owners with independent advice. This relationship continues.
In 2011, Langtonâ€™s 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.
