Wayne Kompare, Certified Member, Appraisers Association of America (Certified in wine)
Welcome to the homepage of FineWineAppraisals.com. I am a certified member of the Appraisers Association of America (certified in wine), and have been appraising wine since 1997. I received a Certificate in Appraisal Studies - Fine and Decorative Arts from New York University in 1993. After apprenticing for several years in fine art appraisals, I decided to specialize in wine appraisals, due to my love of wine and extensive experience in collecting and conducting classes in fine wine.
Wine appraisals, like any other type of collectible, are done for a variety of purposes:
All appraisals are done in compliance with the latest version of the Uniform Standard of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP) and the Code of Ethics of the Appraisers Association of America.
