Barossa Wine Chapters Auction & Lunch 2017
Wednesday, February 15, 2017 in News
In what has fast become a major event on the Australian wine calendar, we are proud to support the Barossa Wine Chapter Auction in April 2017. The Barossa Grape & Wine Association’s bi-annual event provides enthusiasts and collectors alike access to Barossa’s most exclusive and rare wines. Langton’s Barossa Wine Chapter Auction opens on 7 April and the live auction will be held at a special lunch event on Friday 21 April, 2017.
The auction will be conducted by our very own Baron of the Barossa Andrew Caillard MW and features a stunning collection not least among them rare vertical collections of back vintages, as well as large format and special releases from 59 of Barossa’s most prestigious and distinguished wineries, with a total of 159 lots available online and an additional 30 lots available at the live auction. Lots are valued from $40 up to $54,000, with wine to appeal to everyone from casual wine drinkers to connoisseurs and investors.
Held at the Barossa’s acclaimed Chateau Tanunda, the dramatic live auction will be held over a three-course lunch, showcasing the very best of the Barossa’s local produce. Just 400 tickets will be available for the renowned bi-annual event, sold at $150 per person. The net proceeds of the Barossa Wine Chapters Auction are used to support the delivery of the Barossa Vintage Festival and other local charities.
Andrew Caillard earned the coveted distinction of ‘Master of Wine’ in 1993, an honour bestowed to just 353 people globally. Caillard’s passion for wine saw him co-found Langton’s following a lifelong career in the industry spanning across England, France, Germany and Australia. Caillard is recognised as a ‘Baron of Barossa’, a rare distinction for non-Barossan’s, due to his strong support of the region and involvement as a wine auctioneer.
