Unlike other liquor retailers, CellarSpace is completely independent as we don’t buy and sell wine. Instead, our goal is to connect you with genuine cellars, collectors and wineries.
All our advice is independent and based on helping the wine community have a better experience with every bottle they buy, sell or value.
While we are an online marketplace, we like to think of ourselves as a 'people business'. We encourage plenty of interaction in real-time with our qualified online cellar hands. We personally inspect and rate all our private cellars to make sure all wine is stored in the correct manner so you can trust the quality when you purchase through us.
CellarSpace connects wine lovers with premium winery cellar doors, back vintages from private collections and bespoke restaurant wine lists.
Our mission is to bring you closer to great wine experiences, whether that be when you visit a great cellar door or crack open a bottle for that special occasion. We believe that premium wine is more than just a label on a bottle. All wines on CellarSpace come from real wineries and real winemakers – no fake labels or cleanskins.
2016 was the year of the underdog.
Hi, I'm Darren and in 2016 I was lucky enough to attend the AFL Grand Final with my family. Firstly, I had Gerry Ryan to thank for getting hold of some tickets for me and allowing me to have a life long experience of seeing my team, the Western Bulldogs, lift their first premiership in 62 years.
Little did I know that the life-changing was going to continue via my hosts that day. As part of the tickets I was introduced to some other mad Bulldogs supporters Jason and Sam. I had very little knowledge of their background, however, after a few glasses of wine, I soon realised that these guys had established a fairly significant online business called BikeExchange.
Jason and Sam had set up a number of successful online marketplaces and they were really interested in doing a wine marketplace but just hadn't found the right person to do it with. They both loved a glass of wine, but freely admitted they were novices in the category. I had spent more than 20 years in the liquor industry and it seemed like a good fit. Looking back that was the first day that Cellarspace was born as more than just an idea.
With Gerry Ryan as our chairman and key mentor, and along with his son Andrew, we were now in a place to formally launch CellarSpace. This unique wine marketplace opens up the finest cellars and brings premium wines into one place where wine lovers can buy, value and sell their wines on an easy-to-use platform.
Darren, Jason, Sam, Andrew and Gerry are passionate about the wine community and maintain that bringing people together is what's most important about CellarSpace. Cellar doors have great wines that should be celebrated but are often hard to find. With CellarSpace, we are able to share the finest cellars and the genuine premium wines in one place.
We want our finest cellars to again be the pinnacle for the wine community as the most trusted place to buy, sell and value wines.
Whether you are a winery cellar door, private collector or first-class restaurant, if you have plenty of premium wine sitting around then contact the CellarSpace team on how you can make money from it.
