Our May Fine Wine Auction showcases the best of Old and New World wines in our largest auction to date with nearly 700 lots.

Highlights include many lots featuring the iconic 1982 Bordeaux vintage, along with a wide assortment of blue-chip Bordeaux cuvées in their original wood. We are also excited to bring attention to twelve bottles of 1998 Château Lafite Rothschild, a great selection of white and red Burgundies, an abundance of Super Tuscans, a great selection of Porto, and iconic Californians. With such a wide selection of thoughtfully curated wines there is truly something for every Oenophile.

To help make it easier to find the vintages and cuvées you’re looking for we have put together a searchable spreadsheet, and as always, the Wine Finder tool is available for you to enjoy.

Fine Wine and Spirits

Waddington’s is the sole and first company in Ontario permitted to provide the sale by auction of fine wine and spirits, under the authority of the LCBO. Waddington’s previously conducted the LCBO’s Vintages Fine Wine and Spirits auctions from 2009 – 2013. The popularity of collecting wine as an investment grows every year. Many wines offered at auction appreciate in value, especially rare and acclaimed vintages, making auctions an excellent way to build a fine wine portfolio. Our auctions also provide an opportunity for collectors to buy wines that aren’t available through other channels and allow restaurants to build world-class wine lists.
