Wine by the Bottle at Charterhouse



A 6 litre bottle of 1999 Rioja is one of the unusual lots included in the Charterhouse Summer auction of wine, port & spirits.

“They say size matters, and in this case they are probably right!” Commented David Baines, wine expert at Charterhouse. “Our specialist wine, port and whisky auctions are always very popular and well attended, with bidders looking to lay wine down, drink, give as presents or buy for a special occasion. Rarely do you see these 6 litre bottles which contain about 48 glasses. Ready to drink now or in 10 years, it is an excellent buy for someone organising a family bash as you will only need the one bottle to pass around the table!”

This large bottle of 1999 Imperial Reserva Rioja is just one of a number of bottles Charterhouse have been instructed to sell from a client in Exmoor who is having a clear out in his cellar. He took advantage of a specialist wine, port & spirits valuation day at Charterhouse where he met David Baines, the wine expert at Charterhouse. The next Charterhouse wine, port & spirits valuation day at Charterhouse, The Long Street Salerooms, Sherborne is on Wednesday 6th August 10am-4pm.

Charterhouse is now accepting entries for their next auction which includes a selection of wine, port and spirits with silver, jewellery and watches. For further information regarding this auction, or to arrange a home visit,  please contact David Baines for wine or Richard Bromell for silver and jewellery at Charterhouse, The Long Street Salerooms, Sherborne, Dorset 01935 812277 or via email on info@charterhouse-auction.com
