Created by Hong Kong wine merchant Links Concept and a group of Asia-based wine specialists, Bidvino.com is a new online wine auction website aimed at private collectors and those ‘who appreciate a great drop’.
Wines are available by the case or single bottle, including some rare large formats.
At that time, the emphasis is on Australia with heavyweights of Torbreck, Penfolds, Penley Estate, Schubert Estate, D’Arenberg on offer as well as substantial French fancies, ranging from AF Gros Bourgogne Hautes-Cotes de Nuits 2008 for HK$230 (average RRP HK$330) to 1982 Haut Brion.
Registered members looking to pick up a bargain can also browse the ‘Buy Now’ specials, with Hong Kong residents benefiting from free shipping (for orders over HK$800) and those in Macau paying HK$60 per case.
The weekly auctions ends at 3pm HKT on Thursdays and is open to bidders across the globe and all listed wines are stored in the group’s temperature controlled warehousing in Kowloon Bay ensuring immaculate provenance.
