As we get closer to the end of the year, we’re looking forward to celebrations with family and friends. There is much worth raising a glass to, and what better glass to raise than one poured from large format? There is so much rarity in our November Auction of Finest & Rarest Wines, including plenty of rare, large-format bottles that would be perfect for any upcoming festivities.
It is exciting to represent large format bottles on the auction block, rare to find them in such quantity, and nearly impossible to compile in such depth that can also boast pristine quality and provenance. From jaw-dropping lots of of top Burgundian producers like Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Comte Liger-Belair, to First Growth Bordeaux and the greatest names of California, Italy and the Rhône Valley, there is plenty for astute bidders to compete for. Take a look below for some highlights, and make sure to check out the auction for over 350 lots of rare and exciting large-format bottles from all over the globe.
Bidders can utilize our industry-leading bidding platform, available via mobile app or online, to place live and absentee bids. A spreadsheet of the catalog is located here, as well as a PDF that can be used when placing bids.
