Waddington’s presents over 630 lots of fine wine
September 8, 2016, Toronto
Conducting its fifth auction under the authority of the LCBO, the September sale is a massive offering of super rare lots of Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone, California and Italian wines, according to Stephen Ranger, head of Waddington’s Fine Wine and Spirits division.
Waddington’s largest auction of fine wine to date is a testament to the popularity of wine auctions with Ontario collectors. In this case, both quantity and quality are the key factors of this auction says Ranger. Highlights include quantities of Petrus, case verticals of Screaming Eagle, Scarecrow and Dominus as well as multi-bottle formats of Sassicaia and Ornellaia. The auction is expected to reach over $1 million.
The online auction will open Monday, September 12 and will start closing at 6 pm on Tuesday, September 20.
Canada’s pre-eminent wine auctioneer and Waddington’s Vice President Stephen Ranger is pleased that Waddington’s is able to assist Ontario fine wine and spirits collectors. Ranger notes, “Auctions are an excellent way to build a fine wine portfolio and provide an opportunity to buy wines that aren’t available through other channels.”
