Corktraders.com is an online community where subscribers around the globe can come together to trade (or “swap”) their wine. Corktraders was developed as an alternative for connoisseurs to reallocate their collection without incurring the commissions or transaction fees associated with traditional wine sales or auctions. Individual subscriptions to Corktraders.com will be less than $10 per month and allows for an unlimited amount of trading without any transaction fees.
How it Works
As you know, the site is still under construction but we’ve already received some amazing feedback and support from around the world. The public launch for Corktraders.com is slated for October, and in the meantime we’re working hard to make the trading process simple. Subscribers will have the ability to “post” or “upload” wines that they would possibly be willing to trade, and search through other Corktraders’ available wines by vintage, winery, varietals, region and/or the zip code where the bottle(s) is/are located. Each Corktrader will be able to offer, counter offer, accept and/or decline offers to and from other Corktraders. It’s really that simple!
Pass the Word!
Corktraders.com will only ever be as good as its members. The more members there are and the more bottles each member is willing to post for a possible trade, the more valuable the network will be. Our goal is that the network will encompass not only individual connoisseurs, but also wine boutiques, wineries, restaurants and lounges, and anyone else who understands the value in this innovative and inexpensive way to move wine in and out of their personal and/or business cellars.
