Additional Charge Details

Additional charges, including buyer’s premium, value added, sales or compensating use tax or equivalent tax, any and all shipping expenses, including costs, packing and handling, any loss damage liability fees, and all other applicable charges will apply. In addition to the hammer price (final bid price) of each lot, the winning bidder will be responsible for a buyer's premium for each lot of wine sold. The buyer’s premium is equal to 22.5% (twenty-two and one-half percent) of the hammer price of each lot. New York Sales tax or valued added tax, sales or compensating use tax of any applicable jurisdiction will be collected before the lot can be released. It is the buyer’s responsibility to ascertain and pay all taxes due. For international buyers, the terms of sale are Delivered Duty Unpaid (DDU) and duty and sales tax will be the sole responsibility of the buyer to be paid prior to shipment and/or delivery.

The winning bidder will also be responsible for any and all shipping or delivery expenses, including costs of packing, handling and loss damage liability. Columbus Circle Wines and Spirits/Christie’s will arrange for its NY warehouse partner, The Wine Cellarage, to provide loss damage liability for purchased lots when arrangements are made for such lots to be shipped to the winner bidder.

The Wine Cellarage will charge 1% of the purchase price, except that there will be no charge for Manhattan deliveries paid in full by the payment deadline, and such charge will cover only loss, theft, damage or breakage, and not any other changes to the wines during shipment. There is an additional charge (except for delivery in some areas of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts) for shipping the original wooden cases.

Each lot is described in the lot description as correctly as can be ascertained but buyers of old wines must make appropriate allowances for natural variations of ullages, conditions of cases, labels, corks and wine. No returns will be accepted.

Columbus Circle Wines and Spirits/Christie’s does not provide interstate or foreign shipping services. It is the buyer’s responsibility to collect purchases or make all shipping arrangements. After payment has been made in full, the winning bidder can arrange for collection of the wine or The Wine Cellarage can facilitate the packing of and delivery or shipping arrangements for any purchased lots and subject to any state laws and the laws of other countries.

All wines are held at Columbus Circle Wines and Spirits/Christie’s facility at The Wine Cellarage in New York. Columbus Circle Wines and Spirits/Christie’s will store those purchased wines that are paid for in full by the payment deadline free of charge until either the relevant deadline for shipment, collection or delivery described below, at which time purchases will be either shipped, collected or delivered at the winning bidder’s expense and instructions provided at time of payment. Winning bidders who wish to have their wines shipped either domestically or internationally must indicate that at the time of check-out by providing a valid shipping address. If such shipments can be facilitated, purchases will be shipped to the address you provide at check-out. Purchases cannot be delivered to P.O. boxes. Winning bidders who request delivery in Manhattan qualify for free delivery, if, and only if, they pay all charges due by the payment deadline. Winning bidders who wish to arrange for collection of their purchases must indicate that at the time of check-out by checking the appropriate box. Collection can take place Monday – Friday during between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. EST by appointment.
