Testimonials for WineAlpha

As an appraiser

The appraisals I have obtained from Charles Curtis have been timely, accurate, and at a reasonable fee. Charles’ valuation methods are comprehensive and he has also made them transparent, so are supportable. Charles’ has been able to combine years of market experience with a deep knowledge of wine to make him a standard bearer in wine consulting and valuation.

Charles helped me on a divorce file when he valued the family’s substantial wine collection. Charles’ services were impeccable and professional. He was courteous and his work was well laid out and easy to use. I would welcome the opportunity to work with him in other files.

Charles was extremely helpful in evaluating a large charitable donation of wine for us, which involved an inordinate amount of paperwork for our federal taxes. He was kind, thorough, and highly responsive. It is clear that he is very knowledgeable about collectible wine, and he made what could have been an onerous process, very easy. He will be our first call if we need assistance with any wine appraisals in the future!

As an advisor

We met Charles when he was Director of the Wine Department at Christie’s Hong Kong.  We have built a durable trust relationship based on his strong knowledge of the wine market, and wine expertise, his high capacity of organisation and his efficiency in promoting the numerous wine collections we have sold at auction.  We really appreciate still being part of his professional network and will continue for a long time to collaborate with him for promoting our wines to other auction houses. Thank you Charles !
