HONG KONG.- Sotheby’s Hong Kong Autumn 2018 auction series begins with three wine sales on 29-30 September, bringing to the market more than 1,700 lots estimated at HK$75-103 million (US$10-13 million).

Adam Bilbey, Head of Wine, Sotheby’s Asia, states, “Following a strong Hong Kong first-half totaling HK$294 million (US$37 million), we are thrilled to present another extraordinary sale series to continue this spectacular year for Sotheby’s Wine in Asia. We are offering two distinguished single-owner sales, The Towering Bordeaux Collection, and The Wonderful Cellar of an Important Asian Collector. The former brings a rare offering of Château Latour historic vintages with impeccable provenance, whereas the latter presents gems from Burgundy and Bordeaux amassed over a 20-year period. Also not to be missed, Finest and Rarest Wines will feature a huge cross-section of wines at a range of price points highlighted by a complete collection of Cheval Blanc 2010 in all formats, coupled with rare whiskies such as the showstopping The Macallan 50 Years Old, and for the first time ever at Sotheby’s, Kweichow Moutai.”
