A parcel is a sequence of lots carrying the same estimates and consisting of the same type, quantity, and bottle size. In this type of sale, the buyer of the first lot of a parcel of wine will have, at the discretion of the auctioneer, the option to take any or all further lots in the parcel for the same price.
The prices listed in the catalog are values estimated by our auction specialists based on extensive research of market value, retail value, release price, recent auction prices at Zachys as well as our competitors, and a number of other factors. We cannot predict where the hammer will fall, these are merely estimates. In deciding where to bid, we suggest that you consider how much you are willing to spend on a particular bottle, including the buyer's premium.
All Zachys auctions are open to the public. You only need to register in order to bid; spectators are welcome to attend. Lunch is available only for registered bidders. It is perfectly fine to register on the day of the sale. However, pre-registering saves you time at the registration table.
Invoices are mailed to successful bidders as soon as results are confirmed after the auction. Please feel free to contact a ZWA customer service associate at (914)448-3026 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Zachys operates on a 72 hour turn around time. However, during the first week after the sale, due to the high volume of requests for shipments, it may take longer than 72 hours for instructions to be processed. Please note that invoices of 15 lots or more may take longer to process.
We can ship entire lots to multiple addresses. However, it is against Zachys policy to split lots. A lot can be delivered to one place and one place only.
Unfortunately, you cannot make changes to shipping instructions once they have been submitted. In order to meet our advertised turn around time, we begin executing shipment instructions as soon as they are received. Therefore, any changes will only complicate the process. Please be aware that sales tax is charged based on the shipping end point of the wine. Any purchases delivered to CA or NY will be subject to all applicable taxes.
We have no problem making arrangements to have your wine shipped overseas. We have several trusted freight forwarders that deliver wine all over the world.
