Our Streak of White Glove Wine Auctions Continues — Seven in a Row!

By: Waddington's Staff

The days immediately following the conclusion of an auction are hectic — reviewing auction performance, conversing with buyers and consignors — but we’re taking a moment to thank you, our wonderful and passionate clients. It was your incredible consignments combined with informed bidding that has given us our seventh white glove wine auction in a row! A white glove auction, as you probably know by now, means 100% of the lots in an auction have sold — a rarity that every auction house in the world strives for.

The kind words of thanks and encouragement are very much appreciated. Here are just a few we received:

     “Great outcome! I’m very pleased with the September auction results!”

      “…very good results. The market seems to be very hot for OWC Bordeaux.”

     “Great job, as usual!”

It’s something we say often, but we truly couldn’t do this without you. Thank you!
