What Makes Catawiki the Place to Sell Extraordinary Items?

You might think “It will never happen to me!” until one day, rummaging in an old box you discover a first edition book from the 1800s or - perhaps as one fisherman recently made the news with - the world’s largest pearl under your bed! At that point you think “What on earth can I do with this?”

Using the auction

I’m constantly trying new wines and exploring new flavours.

Patricia Verschelling’s interest in wine was awakened 12 years ago when she went to work in a good restaurant. The enthusiastic owners let their staff try the wines so that they could advise the guests properly. That was when Patricia realised she had a talent for correctly identifying the underlying differences. She completed various wine courses including the international WSET level 3 and trained as a viticulturist. After working for a wine importer and in wine shops, she continued her career at an auction house specialising in wines. The auction world was a perfect fit and she now feels completely at home.

Catawiki is the perfect place for Patricia. As an auctioneer, she can rely on her vast knowledge of the world of wine and her well-developed taste. She strives to present a good selection at each auction, where there is a balance between beautiful, special lots and fine drinking wines. Because you cannot taste the wines as a bidder, Patricia always makes sure that the description is perfect. And when the auction ends, she is always glued to her screen to find out how the wines she selected did.
