Treasures abound for Wine & Spirits Lovers
The November auctions feature a cornucopia of treasures for Fine Wine and Spirits lovers that are sure to please every palette and budget. With over 500 lots of wine and 133 lots of fine spirits, this may be our most diverse offering to date as we complete our first full year of Fine Wine auctions at Waddington’s.
All the great names in Bordeaux, California, the Rhone, Champagne, Italy, Spain, California, Port and Australia are beautifully represented. As we approach our anniversary, we wanted to share some things we’ve learned from our clients.
First of all, the vast majority prefer our online format to the live auctions as it offers the time and leisure to peruse the catalogues closely in the comfort of home or office or on your mobile device. We also offer a printed catalogue for those who have purchased in the past, to make notes and study, away from the screen of your computer. If you would like to receive one in the future, please send us a note and we will be happy to oblige. Please note however, the online gallery is usually available at least a week before the printed version.
Secondly, there is a hard core who love coming to a live sale – and to that end we will be hosting a live auction on February 25 at Note Bene in Toronto. More details will follow shortly along with a beautiful luncheon menu prepared by star chef David Lee. Reservations are required for the luncheon, but the auction will be open to the public.
As always, we wanted to share some highlights of this November’s auction.
