Wermuth Auktionen AG
The former Les Grands Vins Wermuth SA have earned a name for themselves throughout Europe as meticulous and reliable auctioneers. Vendors of exceptional collections can rely on the support of our experts, from initial evaluation through to the smooth and rapid sale of their wines. For many years a sleeping partner, the entrepreneur Silvio Denz took over the whole company in 2015, changing its name to Wermuth Auktionen AG. The company publishes several widely acclaimed auction catalogues per year, in which excellently preserved wines that are extremely hard to find are put up for auction. Often, this is the only time that such precious wines appear on the open market – and thus a unique opportunity for collectors to realise their dreams.
Auctioneers and wine traders for over 20 years
What began in 1994 with the founding of Les Grands Vins Wermuth SA has evolved over the past two decades into Switzerland’s largest wine auction house. National and international clients appreciate our vast experience, the rapid and professional processing of transactions and the unusual concentration of rare, valuable wines. Through excellent contacts in the world’s leading wine regions, the wine trading department gradually grew until the two branches of the business were separated into two independent companies at the beginning of 2015. Today, Wermuth Auktionen AG and Denz Weine AG are two separate legal entities operating under the same roof.
