Yes all valuations are for 12 x 75cl equivalents. Please note that the 12 x 75cl format is used for valuations regardless of the bottle format or quantity of bottles held in your reserves for that product. E.g. you may hold a 6 bottle case of 2003 Lafite Rothschild (75cl) but the valuations displayed are for 12 x 75cl equivalents.

Why isn’t there a valuation for my cellared wine(s)?

There are number of possible reasons;

 

  • There is no BBX or Berrys' In Bond price and transaction data from the last 30 days
  • There is no Liv-ex price and transaction data from the last 30 days
  • There is no current Wine Searcher price data
  • Your wine has yet to be matched to the Liv-ex and Wine-Searcher price databases. This could be the case if you have only recently bought a wine
