Looking forward to our Spring Auction
There are always great reasons to get excited for the Spring and it’s not just the return of the warmth and the green to our lives. For the Wine & Spirits department at Waddington’s, it’s our Spring Auction running May 8 – 18.
We’ve carefully assembled over 400 lots of fantastic wines representing the best of what you can buy in the wide world of wine. Leading off with some beautiful trophies, like multiple vintages of Pétrus and Lafite, our Bordeaux offering culminates in a spectacular vertical of Mouton Rothschild featuring one bottle from each vintage 1945-2000. These wines were originally purchased at the Vintages auction in 2003 and have been lovingly stored in a custom built cellar in the east end of Toronto ever since. The vertical is like looking at history in a bottle and the condition of the bottles ranges from very good to excellent.
Speaking of condition, now is probably a good time to emphasize how seriously we take the provenance of each and every bottle we receive for consignment. Our team regularly makes cellar inspections and every bottle is examined of every lot we offer. If there is a question that the wine has been not properly stored, it is not accepted for sale. It is our duty to you to maintain the highest standards of quality and professionalism and we welcome all enquiries regarding provenance of the offering, every sale.
Getting back to the auction, please register and bid on a huge array of ready-to-drink red and white Burgundy from a notable cellar; more Châteauneuf-du-Pape and rare Rhône wine from a Mississauga collection; plenty of cult California, like Saxum and Dominus; multiple case lots of rare Italian wines as well as wonderful mixed lots of Bordeaux for special days or Mondays.
We hope you enjoy this auction and greatly appreciate your enthusiasm and support for Fine Wine at Waddington’s.
