Report on New Year Online Auction & Announcing Next LIVE Auction

We kick started 2023 with our New Year’s Rare and Fine Wine Online auction which concluded last Sunday, in hope our carefully curated collection could bring you some fun to browse over the New Year’s holidays.

In this auction, we had a big focus on kiwi wines, and so did our bidders. This time the shift in interest from old world regions helped our local regions reached the highest sell-through rate across the category. 1998 Te Mata Estate Coleraine got snapped at $223.25, followed by its 2002 vintage at $176.25, and 2016 Bell Hill Pinot Noir was also sold for $176.25, 2018 Kusuda Syrah followed at $164.50.

The highest hammer win of this auction went for 2003 Quinta do Noval Porto Vintage Nacional at $1175, while 2002 Chateau Mouton Rothschild taking the second place at $869.50. 2001 Antinori Pian Delle Vigne Brunello di Montalcino 3 liter OWC, 1977 Chateau Latour and 1979 Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque Rose all sold for $587.50, great buys! Carrying on the bubbly note, 2002 Bollinger R.D Extra Brut sold for $423, while 2003 Dom Perignon achieved $352.50.
