Wine Auction Houses

Iron Gate works with selected auction houses to procure consignments for Canadians from coast to coast.  We manage all aspects of pick up, photography, shipping and care while in our possession. The consignment contract is with selected auction house directly.

After careful consideration, IronGate has selected 2 auction houses to partner with HDH (Chicago) and Zachys (New York/Hong Kong).


Zachys Wine Auctions is the fastest growing auction house in the world. Its experience reaches back to the introduction of wine auctions into New York City in 1994.  Achieved $55.5 million (22% growth compared to 2014) in sales in 2015, with customers based in USA, Thailand, mainland China, Tokyo, Brazil, throughout Europe, and in Singapore, South Korea, and elsewhere in Asia. Furthermore, as the nation’s largest and most powerful retailer of fine Bordeaux, Zachys has established relationships in Bordeaux and throughout Europe that no other auction house can boast. Despite the rapid rise to the top of the U.S. wine auction market, and the international status as a purveyor of fine and rare wines, Zachys is still a family business at heart. What truly sets everything attached to the Zachys name apart – be it the retail store, the auction division or our private storage service – is our commitment to exceptional customer service. This dedication to keep both consignors and buyers satisfied runs throughout the entire Zachys Wine Auctions experience.
