Benchmark Wine & Spirits

Born from the success of Benchmark Wine Group in Napa, CA, comes Benchmark Wine & Spirits in Washington, DC. Together, with our Napa affiliate, we have solidified ourselves as the nation’s leading source of rare and vintage-aged wine while rapidly moving into the rare spirits market. We are importing the best products from top wine and spirits producers and brokers in Europe while also being a major buyer of perfectly stored private wine and spirits collections. Utilizing the vast information from Wine Market Journal and Spirits Market Journal, we can not only create competitive offers for private collections but also ensure the pricing for our buyers is at market-appropriate levels. Whether you are looking to increase the size of your collection or want to downsize some (or all), Benchmark Wine & Spirits are the best place for you.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong Wine Vault

The Hong Kong Wine Vault is much more than a wine storage facility. It is designed with the concept of a "home cellar" in mind. A walk-in wine cellar in one's home is a luxury that very few can afford in Hong Kong. At the Hong Kong Wine Vault, those dreams could become a reality as each customer enjoys the exclusive use of a wine cellar that can be fitted out to their own specifications, whether all the wines are displayed on wooden racking or simply stored in the original wooden cases.
