Report on January Auction & Announcing The Date of February LIVE Auction

Our bidders’ radar didn’t turn off in holiday mode and helped us to achieve another successful auction. The first auction of 2021 had everything you need for the summer season and beyond.

We had great value Pinots for the BBQ as well as some iconic Bordeaux blends.  From one of the most famous chateaux in Bordeaux, 2015 Chateau Mouton Rothschild got the highest hammer, selling for $1035.  Not one to take a back-seat Burgundy was equally impressive with 1987 Domaine Georges Lignier Clos de la Roche Grand Cru got snatched at $460. From home, 2004 Providence Private Reserve Magnum sold for $253, followed by 2006 Craggy Range Sophia at $172.50 and 2006 Te Mata Coleraine at $161.

Australia was strong with typically bold wines with the likes of Penfolds. Interestingly and surprisingly, 1997 Leasingham Bin 61 Shiraz got the most bids — 14 rounds of biding and it finally went home with the winning bidder at $57.50.

Italy has been performing really well in our previous auctions, and we had few superstars again with the 1997 Gaja Sperss Langhe sold for $460, and 2006 Marchesi Antinori Tignanello achieving $207.

Our next auction will be a LIVE/online event on Tuesday 9th February at Caro’s Wine 14 Mackelvie Street, Grey Lynn. Please note the auction will start at 6.00pm. As usual, this will be streamed live on We have some great wines lined up for this auction and, as always, we will have something special to taste that evening too.

Many thanks to all our vendors and bidders.  We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
