Wine, Port & Spirits

A bottle of Chateau d’Yquem 1947 sold for £680

Image089asOur wine, port & spirits department is run by David Baines.

David is a Wine & Spirits Education Trust Wine Educator, a Fellow of the British Institute of Hospitality and The British Institute of Innkeepers. He has decades of experience and always has top tips of what is good to drink and what is good to lay down.

Over the years, we have been instructed to sell a broad range of wine, port and spirits, with single boxes to sealed and unopened cases. Perhaps one of the more unusual single bottles we sold was a bottle of 1937 Moet & Chandon champagne. By repute, it came from Hitler’s personal cellar (although rather interestingly Hitler was teetotal). However, what was not known was whether the Nazis added cyanide to it when retreating! On the auction day there was huge interest in this single bottle and it sold for a Scandinavian TV company for an astounding £1,700.

If you have a single bottle, group of bottles or a case (or two), contact David Baines at our salerooms 01935 812277 or send him lists or images to info@charterhouse-auction.com and David will contact you with a valuation.

Collection and shipping throughout the UK is easily arranged with Benelux Shipping. They are specialist wine couriers and do not ship anything else! We regularly use them finding their charges very reasonable. Contact them for a quote benelux@talk21.com or 01823 660645.

All of our auctions use live internet bidding platforms to ensure that every lot, whether it is worth £20 or £500,000, reaches the widest possible market and sells for the best price possible. In the run up to an auction we receive 100’s of emails requesting further information for lots in the sale. Attached to these email replies, we regularly send well over 1,000 digital images, such is the huge interest generated in our auctions.
