Ultimate Single Vendor Auction Series
Friday, September 28, 2018 in News
Our ‘Ultimate Single Vendor’ auction series continues this weekend with two sales, one focusing on red Burgundy, the other on Champagne and white Burgundy.
Both auctions are open until 7pm this Sunday evening, September 30. Why not put a reminder in your phone so you can check on the wines you’re interested in and avoid being outbid at the last minute.
This auction series represents the sale of what is probably the finest private wine collection seen in our 30 years as specialist wine auctioneers.
