Barossa Wine Chapters Auction
In 2017, the Barossa Wine Chapters Auction Seal of Provenance was introduced as a verification of the wine’s authenticity, direct from the cellars of the winemaker, protecting the security and integrity of your investment.
The Barossa Wine Chapters Auction Seal of Provenance verifies the chain of custody of the wine between the winery cellar which is selling the wine and the successful bidder at the Barossa Wine Chapters Auction. Barossa Grape & Wine Association (BGWA) has been told by the selling wineries that each wine comes directly from their own cellars but BGWA has not verified and therefore cannot guarantee this.
Each seal is uniquely coded, with every auction item allocated its own individual code. The seal is applied by Langton’s staff upon receipt of the wine from the winery. This information is held securely by BGWA in digital form, in a “cloud”, for a period of six years, but BGWA is not responsible for the loss of this information due to any malfunction of its information technology systems or by a third-party provider.
Successful bidders can access the information pertaining to their purchase by contacting BGWA (firstname.lastname@example.org) and supplying proof of purchase.
