Your one stop shop for buying vintage wines from a reputable Retailer
Victoria Cellars is a retailer of fine and rare wines. We created this company to satisfy the demand of wine buyers who like to buy older wines that are not available at their local retailer. We hold inventory of old and rare vintages of the world's greatest and rarest wines in our temperature-controlled cellar.
We obtain our wines from various sources including Private Collectors, Wineries, Chateau or Domaine direct. We only take on wines that have been optimally stored and each bottle is inspected for its condition. Many of these are simply unavailable elsewhere, while our more recent vintages are frequently offered at unbeatable prices.
Superior provenance, temperature-controlled shipping, and the highest standards of inventory, conditional and appraisal quality are always 100% guaranteed. Because of the limited nature and high demand for wines of this type, our inventory is constantly changing and new, wonderful wines can be found nearly every day. Our inventory is real-time!
