Get ready for a great season of fine wine and spirits
We hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are ready for a great fall season of Fine Wine and Spirits. Waddington’s Fine Wine department has been very busy over the last few months and we are pleased to report that our September auctions are ready to roll. The catalogues will be available in print and online before Labour Day weekend giving you lots of time to peruse the sale as you enjoy the last weekend of summer.
The Fine Wine and the Fine Spirits auctions will run concurrently online from September 11 – 19 at finewine.waddingtons.ca.
To celebrate the launch of the season and the bounty of the September auction, Waddington’s Fine Wine will be hosting a Magnum Tasting on September 14 from 6 – 8 pm. Representing some of our most impressive cellars, these wines exemplify the superb quality of the September sale. Here are the wines we look forward to enjoying with you:
2000 Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape
2005 Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot
2005 Chateau Gruaud-Larose
2009 Clos St. Jean Chateauneuf du Pape La Combe des Fous
2010 Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin Les Cazetiers
The tasting will start off with some delicious Champagne and excellent cheese. Tickets for the special tasting are $75.00 and are strictly limited as the wines are available in limited quantity. To order tickets please contact Brittany Boyd-Pyman at 416-504-9100 or [email protected].
Please also note that the deadline for consignments for the November auction is September 22.
See finewine.waddingtons.ca for information on submitting lists for consideration.
Finally we wish to say thank you and farewell to our Inventory and Client Service Manager, Franklin Marcano, who is leaving Waddington’s for a job in the U.S. in the energy sector. Many of you have got to know Franklin over the last two years – and we will miss his graciousness and dedication to our Fine Wine clients.
We look forward to seeing you at the tasting and to your participation in the fall auctions.
