Bidding

You will only be able to bid on lots when the auction is live! When the auction is live, you are welcome to bid on as many bottles as you like. We use an incremental system where you can bid any amount over the next minimum increment, or you also have the option to select the maximum price you wish to pay and the system will only bid the next increment if you have been outbid under your maximum.

Bids From Bids To Minimum Increment
$0 $100 $2
$100 $300 $5
$300 $500 $10
$500 $1,000 $20
$1,000 $2,000 $25
$2,000 $5,000 $50
$5,000 Higher $100

  

You are able to see all your bids in your account and monitor which lots you have been outbid or currently winning.

The Auction will close on the last Monday of every month from 8.00pm AEST. Any bids placed in the last 10 minutes will extend the auction time on that lot by another 10 minutes. 

Please make sure that you have examined the lot carefully before you place any bids. By placing a bid on a lot you are confirming that you have examined the item and are satisfied with it.

ALL BIDS ARE FINAL!
