Wine Auction: September 19

Once again, Skinner, a large auction house in Boston, will be holding another wine auction. the auction will be held on Friday, September 19 at 6pm at their offices at 63 Park Plaza, Boston. Skinner’s retail partner in this venture is one of my favorite wine stores, Lower Falls Wine Co.

You can check out the catalog of lots that will be auctioned. There will be over 250 lots and they will be auctioning more than just wine this time. They have added a number of wine-related antiques including decanters, glassware and more. The wines come from France, Germany, Italy, Spain, California, Australia, Portugal. They range from Bordeaux and Burgundy to Port and Champagne.

Some of the highlights include:
12 Bottles of Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1982
2 Bottles of Screaming Eagle
12 Bottles of Chateau Margaux 1982
12 Bottles of Chateau Petrus 1989
12 Bottles of Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1982
Chateau d'Yquem 1928
Double Magnum of Chateau Latour 1982
2 Bottles of Chateau Margaux 1929
10 Bottles of Chateau Haut Brion

I attended their last auction in March, and it was quite exciting. Plus, there were bargains to be found, provided you had the money to purchase some of these high-end wines. The auction proceeds quickly and should not last more than two hours or so. I will likely attend this auction too so maybe I will see you there.
