Diamond Provenance Rating

Diamond Provenance Rating



“The more you know about the storage history of the wine you’re interested in, the better. 

If you’re keen on a particularly expensive bottle, it can be a good idea to either call the auction house prior (to see if they know of the bottle’s storage history) or visit, or perhaps ask for a picture of the bottle. Poorly stored wines are generally (with random exceptions) poor drinks.”

- Buying wine at auction, By Campbell Mattinson.


At United Cellars our aim is for the quality of the product to be the driving force for sales, not the price.

To help simplify this process for you, wines that United Cellars verify are from perfect provenance are rated with a Diamond Provenance Rating
