Results from Our Sept Fine Wine & Rare Spirits Auctions

By: Stephen Ranger

So close to 100%!

We are delighted to report a 99.4% sell-through rate for our September Fine Wine auction and a 94% success rate with the Tom Willcock Collection of Fine & Rare Whisky Part 1.

We would like to thank all our buyers and sellers for this remarkable series of auctions. We look forward to seeing many of these great wines and spirits on award-winning restaurant lists and to hearing about the depths of private cellars both in Ontario and around the world.

The other good news is that we are close to finalizing our final auctions of 2018 in November. The Fine Wine auction will again be a significant offering. For devotees of classed Bordeaux, rare Rhone and Burgundy, and especially for connoisseurs of vintage Champagne, there is much to look forward to and we will share details as we wrap up our catalogues.

Scotch enthusiasts already know from the catalogue what to expect from the splendid collection of Tom Willcock Part II.
