Spectrum Wine Auctions, one of the new leading players in fine and rare wine auctions, will hold its largest live auction to date on March 12 and March 13, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. HKT (March 11 and March 12, 2011, 6:00 p.m. PST) at The Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel & Towers, located at 20 Nathan Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong. The massive two-day Spring 2011 Live Auction will feature more than 1,700 lots of some of the world’s most sought after collectible wines, including the second installment of The Doctor’s Pristine OWC Collection and consignments purchased directly from the cellars of Château Mouton Rothschild, Château d’Yquem and Compañia Vinícola del Norte de España. The sale will offer a staggering 1,200 lots of Bordeaux including a 34-year vertical of Château Mouton Rothschild, cases of 1982 Château Lafite Rothschild and rare Château Latour vintages from the 1930s. Close to 14,000 bottles will be offered with a pre-sale estimate of nearly $5 million. Richard Brierley, current Head of Fine Wine at Vanquish Ltd., and previous Head of North American Wine Sales at Christie’s, will preside as auctioneer.


“The incredible selection and scope of wines featured in the March sale is indicative of strong upward momentum the fine wine market is experiencing,” says Spectrum Wine Auctions President Jason Boland. “With consignments purchased directly from several top producers and the second installment from The Doctor’s Pristine OWC Collection, the auction will offer collectors a truly astonishing opportunity to procure top wines with the finest possible provenance.”
