Therefore we would love to hear from you
"Mearto has been a great find for me as I have lots of things come through my hands with my Reclaim Company.
They have been very helpful. I think the service has been exceptional and response time impressive and will recommend them to any one.
Thank you Mearto"
"Wow I was not expecting to get that much in depth information! I never dreamed it would actually have any history behind it.
Thank you so much!"
"I am a fundraiser and routinely purchase items which are then auctioned to raise money. I have a very good eye, but occasionally need help monetizing value. I knew I had a very nice copy in original frame, but I didn't know how much it was worth. Because I do this to make money, I couldn't afford typical appraisal fees and the "free" appraisal service was useless. My Mearto appraiser did a complete, authoritative valuation so it was well worth the price.
I will be back!"

You appraisal is done and you can now print it. We will securely store a digital copy that you always can retrieve. You can also ask follow up questions if something in the appraisal is not clear.
Gradually establishing itself as a popular auction category, wine is enjoying an increasing global demand in the last few decades. It is considered not only an enjoyment but also an investment, thus it is important to know how wine is valued, in order to buy and sell at the right price.
Not every vintage wine is collectible and a rare bottle doesn’t necessarily mean it is valuable. Boudreaux, Burgundy, Napa Valley, Pomerol, Super Tuscans, Rhones and special high quality and limited production Champagnes are some of the most sought-after wines.
The condition of the bottle, filling level and preservation history is essential in wine valuation. Low levels and signs or any evidence of weeping will indicate a significant risk, thus reduce the price.
Another important variant is the provenance. Similar to art, the provenance of wine is a combination of its purchase and storage history. The number of bottles you want to sell is also important. Collectors are more inclined to buy a case of the same wine rather than only 1 bottle.
Confused? Don’t be. Mearto puts you in contact with the best experts from top auction houses, who will assess your wine and determine the market value professionally.
If you want to have a wine appraisal, fill out our form and send us detailed photographs of the bottle, cork, label, and case. Make sure you don’t forget to give us information about the storage conditions to guarantee accurate valuation.
